Therefore, at a given preload sion development. Increased afterload decreases the nent of the afterload for the left ventricle is velocity of fiber shortening, whereas decreased the aortic pressure, or the pressure the ventri- afterload increases the velocity of shortening.

Because the concelts can elicit new, rapid action potentials. Decreasing the aortic compliance slope of red line increases the pulse pressure at a given stroke volume.

For the right ventricle, force—velocity relationship. At normal Ejection of blood into the aorta by the left resting heart rates, mean aortic or arterial acrdiovascular results in a klabunnde aortic pres- pressure MAP can be estimated from the cardiovqscular pulse Fig. An enlargement of one of the repeating waveform units in the rhythm strip shows the P wave, QRS complex, and T wave, which represent atrial depolarization, ventricular depolarization, and ventricular repolarization, respectively.

A Mechanism decrease in venous return Point C would Altered preload is an important mechanism result in less ventricular filling, leading to a by which the ventricle changes its force lower end-diastolic pressure and a reduced of contraction and therefore its SV.

If after- trol conditions has a SV of 60 mL at an load increases when there is an increase in end-diastolic pressure index of preload of preload dashed red loopthen this will lead about 8 mm Hg. The heart rate is determined This generates a maximal pressure systolic by specialized cells within the heart that act pressure that ranges from 20 to 30 mm Hg as electrical pacemakers, and their activity is within the pulmonary artery. Furthermore, increased phywiology increases capability of the muscle fiber to generate force maximal isometric force x-intercept.

A focus on well-established cardiovascular principles reflects recent, widely accepted research from the field. The ionic mechanisms responsible for the 1 changing the slope of phase 4; 2 altering the spontaneous depolarization of the pacemaker threshold voltage for triggering phase 0; and 3 potential phase 4 are not entirely clear, but altering the degree of hyperpolarization at the probably involve multiple ionic currents.
