9) Due to the relative high pressure kon the arterial side of the circulation, this blood mixture contains a relatively greater proportion of blood from the arteriole side of the capillary bed than from the venule side; and, thus, a "capillary-blood" sample obtained by skin puncture approximates closer to arterial blood than venous blood.
The nonsecreted VEGF 188 increases the concentration locally and works cooperatively with VEGF120 to expand the capillary bed.
Although this is a significantly lower pressure than present in the systemic circulation, this pressure is higher than that in the glomerular capillary bed.
It has been posited that cyclic changes of ICP synchronized with mechanical ventilation may be due to cyclic compression of the cerebral capillary bed by mechanical ventilation.

Haemangioma may be the result of faulty differentiation of primordial vessels, resulting in an abnormal capillary bed.
The rationale is that pressures created within the thorax through the airways can be transmitted to the alveolar capillaries, causing a mechanical impediment to blood flow through the capillary bed with the resultant increase in PVR.
