I am reading my study materials and think what is the systemic POV here

Regional circulation Blood flow within the tissue/organs based on the functional demands of the tissue. E.g. The blood flow to the brain should remain relatively constant from a systemic POV (13% of CO at rest).

What is the POV here?

Extension to the question and explanation. The last part is just 13% of maximal cardiac output.

I'd guess venous P[O_2], maybe. Who gives abbreviations without a key? Although the suggestion of "point of view" make sense in context. –  kmm Feb 6 at 22:42

Given the answer this is more of an English Language question than Biology so I'll close it. –  Rory M Feb 8 at 0:54
    
This question appears to be off-topic because it is about an abbreviation commonly used outside of the field of biology. –  Rory M Feb 8 at 0:54

Thank you very much! I really sometimes get confused by the abbreviations used in my study materials. –  Masi Feb 7 at 19:49
