There are two other important principles that should be appreciated concerning flow and resistance. Firstly, laminar flow (sometimes referred to as Poiseuille or streamline flow) requires less driving pressure than turbulent flow, at the same flow rate (Fig. 3). The Reynolds ratio or number (Re ), a non-dimensional index of the ratio of inertial forces to viscous forces within the fluid, predicts the type of flow at a defined velocity. Thus, in a vessel where flow is turbulent, a greater driving pressure is required to generate that flow than in a vessel in which the flow is laminar: r4 ηL ∴Flow = Driving pressure/Resistance to flow ΔP .

In contrast, the role of the bronchial circulation is primarily to ensure nutrition of the airways, vessels, parenchyma, and visceral pleura. However, another important function of the bronchial circulation is its contribution, via airway mucosal perfusion, to the conditioning of inspired air and in thermoregulation as a route for heat dissipation. The pulmonary circulation is in series with the systemic circulation and therefore receives the total cardiac output from the right side of the heart, despite the fact that it only has approximately one-tenth the capacity of the systemic circulation.
