The vascular resistance is usually calculated by dividing mean arterial pressure with cardiac output. It is directly proportional to blood pressure, that is, when vascular resistance increases, blood pressure increases. There are two mechanisms through which vascular resistance is affected, active and passive. The passive mechanism refers to a secondary change of vascular resistance in response to some mechanical change.
