See article by Kiriazis and Gibbs [1] (pages 111–119) in this issue. ### 1.1 Pressure–volume relation and oxygen consumption Many researchers have tried to relate cardiac energy metabolism in terms of oxygen consumption or heat production to mechanical performance. One now popular and accepted mechanical parameter is based on the pressure–volume relations found in the intact heart where pressure is plotted as a function of volume over the cardiac cycle [2]. The curve that is followed during… CONTINUE READING
