Blood Pressure And Blood Pooling

Recommended Posts

Since I'm a Newbie maybe y'all can help me out. I'm having a hard time understanding how one can have blood pooling in the legs yet normal to high standing blood pressure? Isn't blood pressure especially the diastolic number a marker of peripheral resistance? What am I missing here? I was under the impression that blood pooling was the result of veins NOT constricting...so confused?
