The determinants of systolic and diastolic learning can be compared to the determinants of cardiac function: preload, afterload and contractility.
1 Hemodynamics S Cardiac Output (CO) S Amount of blood pumped by the heart in one minute. S CO = SV X HR (SV = stroke volume; HR = heart rate) S reported as L / min S CO would decrease with decreased preload, increased afterload, decreased contractility, tachycardia or bradycardia, decreased ...
Considering the original curve again: Could you superimpose a curve where afterload was increased but preload and contractility were unchanged?

How does ventricular pressure and afterload affect activity of the semilunar valve? 10. a. How does high blood pressure or hypertension affect aortic pressure?
ORIGINAL PAPER Afterload Assessment With or Without Central Venous Pressure: A Preliminary Clinical Comparison Glen Atla s •Jay Berger • Sunil Dhar Springer Science+Business Media, LLC 2010 Abstract Aclinical comparison, of two methods of afterload assessment, has been made.
Increase in pre-load has no effect on the force of the next contraction c. Systemic vasoconstriction reduces afterload d. Isovolumetric ventricular contraction ends when the aortic valve opens e.
intracellular cAMP (ß 1 stimulation, glucagon, phosphodiesterase inh.) thyroid hormones, histamine (minor effect) afterload (Anrep effect) decreased by ischaemia c. Describe the factors that control preload, afterload and myocardial contractility.
