My professor asked me this during rounds

Members don't see this ad.
1. Is flow in systemic capillaries pulsatile and why?
2. What are the situations in which we experience pulsation?
3. Is the flow pulsatile in pulmonary capillaries and Why?

Can anyone answer me these question? thank you very much!

I believe in your ability to google these things :)
If you still have confusion once you've looked it up then we might be able to help

Why would your professor be with you on rounds? Or do you mean attending?

Right. I think both systemic and pulmonary capillary is in pulsatile action because they have smooth muscle at the arteriole end to modulate the blood flow. Am I correct?

I googled this and got an answer quickly. They explain it well, actually.
