Reptiles may experience drastic growth rates. In these very large organisms, blood flow may be impaired as the Poiseuille's equation indicates that resistance to flow increases with tube length. As arterial pressures increase with body mass, a bigger pressure drop is present in these organisms. However, if in one hand the heart needs to generate a higher pressure, on the other hand the ...
Reptiles may experience drastic growth rates, some species reaching an order of 10,000-fold of body mass increase during their lifespan. This massive increment in body mass may compromise blood flow, since the Poiseuille's equation indicates that resistance to flow increases with tube length. To circumvent this problem, reptiles increase their arterial pressure with body mass to maintai...
