Calculation of parameters of end-systolic pressure-volume relation in the ventricles

The slope and intercept of a non-linearmodel of the end-systolic pressure–volume relation (ESPVR) are calculated by using a previously derived mathematical formalism describing the pressure–volume relation (PVR) in the left ventricle. An important feature of this mathematical approach is the inclusion of the peak isovolumic pressure Pisom in the formalism… CONTINUE READING
