Enter the change in pressure across the circulation loop and the flow through the vasculature into the calculator to determine the TPR.

TPR Formula

The following formula is used to calculate TPR (total peripheral resistance).

TPR = P / Q

  • Where TPR is the total peripheral resistance
  • P is the change in pressure across the circulation loop
  • Q is the flow rate through the vasculature

To calculate TPR, divide the pressure change by the flow rate.

What is TPR?

Definition:

TPR, short for total peripheral resistance, is a measure of the total amount of force exerted on circulating blood by the vasculature of the body.
