...e which is ~10 um. The common misinterpretation is to actually draw a connection between the amount of blood in one side or another to the ability to maintain homeostasis. More importantly, one should consider the relative resistance of each side and flow velocity when considering the comparability between either "side" of the systemic circulation.

Compliance (C) is the incremental volume (∆V) that is accommodated per unit of pressure (∆P) or C = ∆V/∆P. Simplistically, it is the amount of "give" in the system. The venous compliance is ...
