Well...there are so many influences on BP.

To start, there's temperature regulation and it's affects on vasodilation and vasoconstriction...also hormonal influences such as angiotensin, epinephrine, and dopamine...your sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems play a role in BP well as plasma and Na+ .....and even the heart...preload, contractility, stroke volume....
There are many factors involved with regulating BP....
