Noun1.arterial pressure - the pressure of the circulating blood on the arteriesarterial pressure - the pressure of the circulating blood on the arteries; "arterial pressure is the product of cardiac output and vascular resistance"
blood pressure - the pressure of the circulating blood against the walls of the blood vessels; results from the systole of the left ventricle of the heart; sometimes measured for a quick evaluation of a person's health; "adult blood pressure is considered normal at 120/80 where the first number is the systolic pressure and the second is the diastolic pressure"

The guidelines of the Brain Trauma Foundation (BTF) also suggests to keep the systolic BP>90 mmHg and oxygen saturation >90%, maintenance of intracranial pressure (ICP) and mean arterial pressure i.e.
Additionally, they measured heart rate, diastolic and systolic blood pressure, and mean arterial pressure at the brachial artery in the upper arm.
The analysis of data from two previously completed Phase 3 studies conducted in North America showed that treatment with terlipressin was associated with improved overall and transplant-free survival in HRS-1 patients with lower baseline mean arterial pressure. This effect was seen independent of HRS reversal, and may relate to a marked improvement in MAP and renal function in this patient group following administration of terlipressin.
At six months, the between-group differences in diastolic BP reduction (0.41 mmHg) and mean arterial pressure (2.24 mmHg) were not significant.
Oxygen saturation, heart rate, mean arterial pressure, end-tidal carbon dioxide, and ANI values were recorded after induction and at 5-min intervals perioperatively.
The researchers also found a 17 per cent increase in pregnancy loss for every 10 mm Hg increase in mean arterial pressure, a measure of the average pressure in the arteries during full heart beat cycles.
Hemodynamically stable patients, who had a sufficient oxygenation (Sp[O.sub.2] (peripheral oxygen saturation) > 92, Fi[O.sub.2] (fraction of inspired oxygen) [less than or equal to] 0.4, PEEP (positive end-expiratory pressure) [less than or equal to] 8 mmHg, and Pa[O.sub.2] (arterial pressure of oxygen)/Fi[O.sub.2] [greater than or equal to] 150), were weaned by the spontaneous breathing trial (SBT) with low-level pressure support or oxygen T-piece for 90-120 minutes.
To measure the pulmonary arterial wedge pressure and pulmonary arterial pressure accurately, the waveform was monitored carefully (Figures 2(a) and 2(b)).
(1-4) Cerebral perfusion pressure is calculated by subtracting intracranial pressure (ICP) from the mean arterial pressure (MAP) and is a critical value used to direct therapeutic interventions aimed at reducing secondary brain injury.
Our study shows the effect of BMI on systolic-diastolic BP and mean arterial pressure.
