Total peripheral resistance (TPR) is the sum of all forces that oppose blood flow in systemic circulation. [1] TPR is affected by numerous factors, such as blood viscosity, vessel length, hydrostatic pressure (pressure created in a fluid system such as the body), and vessel diameter, with vessel diamter being the most important of these factors.
