I'm looking over my pharmacology book and it says, "The higher the CO the higher the BP". Can someone please explain this to me, I'm having trouble wrapping my head around it. If someone has high BP that would indicate that the vessels are having trouble pumping blood throughout the body increasing BP. A high CO would indicate to me that blood is easily being pumped through the body unless the body has fluid build up. I feel like it could be low BP or high BP if you have a high CO?
