Reference presssure for blood flow FSI

I want to seek some expertise on experience with ANSYS CFX.
I am doing blood vessel FSI and set reference pressure as 1atm in the fluid domain. I did't include pref in force calculation.
When I look at the CFD output file, it said pref is not included in pressure force calculation. That makes me think what is the importance of setting the reference pressure . And I found it's mostly important for gas problem.
If I use 1atm (=760mmHg) as reference pressure, will it affect my FSI simulation result for imcompressible fluid, as the pressure change is ~< 1mmHg?
Also, does it mean that the pressure outside my vessel wall is also 1atm?
I am thinking about running another test to check that, but it takes a week to turn another set. I wonder if someone can just tell me from their experience, because I am using this converged steady results as initial condition for transient FSI, so I want to know I am using correct results for my consecutive simulations.
And for the next time I should set it as 0Pa, is that right? Or is it not so important for liquid flow?
Thank you in advance!

For incompressible flows it really doesn't matter what you use as the reference pressure (unless you include it in the forces!), but I would still use 1 atm since that is the correct physical pressure. Just make sure your inlet/outlet pressures are then set as relative pressures and not absolute pressures.
