the opening up of the capillaries of the skin in response to warm temperatures, thus increasing the flow of blood to the surface of the
Dilation of blood vessels, which lowers blood pressure.
An increase in the diameter of arterioles due to the relaxation of smooth muscles in the tunica media; reduces peripheral resistance; may occur in response to local factors, through the action of hormones, or after decreased stimulation of the vasomotor center.
The widening of the lumen of a blood vessel.
an increase in the size of the lumen of a blood vessel caused by relaxation of the smooth muscle in the wall of the vessel
Vessels stretched beyond the normal dimensions, especially arterioles. This leads to increased blood flow to a part.
widening (dilation) of a vessel, especially arterioles, leading to increased blood flow to a part.
dilation of blood vessels (especially the arteries)
An induced expansion of blood vessels.
Relaxation or opening of a blood vessel.
Widening of blood vessels resulting from relaxation of the muscular wall of the vessels. What widens is actually the diameter of the interior (the lumen) of the vessel. The opposite of vasoconstriction.
Relaxation of the smooth muscles of blood vessels, resulting in an increase in their inner diameter (caliber).
Increase of local blood flow.
widening of the blood vessels. It produces an increase in blood flow.
dilation of the blood vessels.
Phlebarteriectasia of the blood vessels.
Increase in the diameter of a blood vessel.
Dilation (expansion in diameter) of a blood vessel.
An increase in the diameter of blood vessels caused by relaxation of the smooth muscles in the vessel. This process increases blood flow and lowers blood pressure.
Increase in the calibre of the blood vessels, leading to an increased blood flow AN vasoconstriction
a widening of the blood vessels.
Refers to the relaxed and expanded state of an artery, which occurs when it needs to accommodate increased blood flow.
