Description Of the factors that determine whether fluid moves from capillary blood into tissue or vice versa, capillary hydrostatic pressure is the only one that can change rapidly. Using this app a student or instructor can see how arterial and venous pressures and pre- and post-capillary resistances affect capillary pressure. Possible simulations include effects of a tourniquet, hemorrhagic hypotension, reflex vasoconstriction, etc. The app can be used for self-instruction or classroom demonstrations.

The update is working beautifully! I was able to use the app recently in my class with great success. Thanks.

IOS 7 & 8 threw a bug into this app. On the iPad several digital displays appeared briefly and then disappeared. I am pleased to report that my programmer and I have fixed that bug so that Capillary Pressure now works corretly on both iPads and iPhones. If you already have the app, the update is waiting for you at Apple's App Store. If you'd like a free copy, let me know, and I'll send you a promo code. Have fun!

The major drawback is that the app does not have full functionality with iOS7 on the iPad. The price is reasonable ($0.99) for an app that focuses solely on variables that affect capillary pressure. It would be a great resource for lectures.
