static pressure

Etymology: Gk, statikos, causing to stand; L, premere, to press
a condition of equalized blood pressure throughout the body when the heartbeat is stopped. A nonmoving fluid exerts a uniform pressure in all directions.

static pressure

1. The pressure in the circulatory system between pulses.
2. Pressures that are present in a system when any variables that may impact the system are minimized.
