Arteries are similar to water channels which feed the earth and connect the seas. Only in a human body they are filled by blood which circulates between heart and other bodies. Arterioles can be narrowed at first because of periodic spasms, and further already to be forever narrowed because of thickenings of vascular walls. Our heart aspires to overcome “bottlenecks” and to deliver the necessary volume of blood there where it is necessary. For this purpose heart increases force of the work and pushes out in a vascular channel a considerably increased quantity of blood. It also is preconditions of the beginning of development of a hypertension – the strengthened blood-groove involving increased force of pressure upon walls of vessels.
