systole. Diastole refers to relaxation and systole refers to contraction (the way I remember this is that when someone di. es, their body relaxes—morbid, I know, but it
Systole The first phase of systole is called the isovolumetric or isometric phase, which is shown on the pressure tracing. This phase occurs after the QRS wave, which is caused by ventricular depolarization of the ECG.
Ventricular systole •Isovolumetric contraction (after closure of the mitral valve and before opening of the aortic valve) rapid rise in pressure until it aortic valve) rapid rise in pressure until it exceeds that of the aortic pressure and the aortic valve opens •Ejection phase (opening to ...
This is a measure of how long the ventricles are depolarized when they undergo an action potential, and is roughly the same duration as ventricular systole .
Atrial systole represents the second rapid filling phase of diastole accounting for 15% of diastolic filling and completes filling of the right and left ventricles before ventricular systole commences.

forward flow during systole Intra-Aortic Balloon Pump • Inflation of balloon causes 2nd peak of forward flow during systole • Flow reversal at end of diastole corresponds to
A prospective examination of waveforms from 1914 vertebral arteries produced a total of 40 that had a transient sharp decline in velocities at mid or late systole.
Systole is the contractile phase of each chamber while diastole is the relaxation phase. During the cardiac cycle, the atria and the ventricles each have periods of both systole and diastole.
Ventricular Systole: Isovolumetric Contraction x. Blood flows passively into the atria, through open AV valves, and into the ventricles. 2b. Ventricular Systole: Ejection y.
