Learning Objectives: 1. To understand the hemodynamic events occurring during the different phases of the cardiac cycle and to be able to explain these both on the pressure-volume diagram and on curves of pressure and volume versus time. 2. To understand how the end-diastolic pressure volume relationship (EDPVR) and the end-systolic pressure-volume relationship (ESPVR) characterize ventricular diastolic and systolic properties, respectively. 3. To understand the concepts of contractility… CONTINUE READING
