How does blood pressure make blood move though the various regions of the cardiovascular system?

Blood pressure is the actual pressure of blood traveling in the arteries of the body. Blood pressure is caused by the force of a pump (the heart) pumping blood into the arteries which have tight walls. The pressure of the blood results in the blood circulating just as water pressure will result in water circulating to any pipes attached to a water pump. When a person has very low blood pressure the blood does not circulate much and the person is said to be "in shock." When a person has no blood pressure the blood does not circulate at all and the person is dead.
