Dilatation of arterioles allows a greater amount of blood to enter capillaries and thus to improve the delivery of oxygen and nutrients, and removal of metabolites, such as lactic acid. The distribution of red blood cells in capillaries in resting muscles is not homogeneous: some have very large gaps between individual cells while others have cells tightly packed and very few capillaries have only plasma without red blood cells (see Fig. 4). However, this distribution changes in time and space, and the red blood cells also move, in some capillaries fast, in others slowly.

The arrows inside the vessels and in the hearts chamber indicate blood flow. When the pressure in the left ventricle exceeds the pressure in the aorta, the aortic valve opens and the aorta expands due to the elasticity of its walls. As the blood goes to different organs through the aorta and large vessels (such as the brachial supplying the arms or femoral supplying the legs) the pressure in the aorta gradually decreases and, when it is lower than in the heart, the aortic valve shuts. However, the elasticity of the vessels keeps the blood flowing into smaller vessels, the arterioles (see Fig.
