What cardiovascular factors account for the changes to diastolic blood pressure for the diving response?
there is generalised artery vasoconstriction due to sympathetic stimulation and also metabolic hyperaemia (depending on your level you may not need to know this second reason). constriction leads to decreased vessel volumes therefore higher pressure
