II. Definitions

  1. Cardiac Output (CO)
    1. Quantity of blood pumped per minute through the aorta and into the peripheral circulation
    2. Cardiac Output is proportional to (arterialPressure / totalPeripheralResistance)
    3. CO = SV * HR
      1. Where SV = Stroke Volume
      2. Where HR = Heart Rate
    4. Normal Adult
      1. Range: 4-8 L/min (typical 70 kg male = 5.25 L/min)
  2. Cardiac Index (CI)
    1. Average stroke output of heart per minute (Cardiac Output) adjusted for body surface area
    2. CI=CO/BSA
      1. Where CO = Cardiac Output
      2. Where BSA = Body Surface Area
    3. Normal Adult
      1. Range: 2.4 - 4 L/min/m2 (60% of csardiac output in the normal, average sized adult)
  3. Stroke Volume (SV)
    1. Volume of blood pumped from the heart in one cycle of diastole and systole
    2. SV = EDV - ESV
      1. Where EDV = End-diastolic volume
      2. Where ESV = End-systolic volume
    3. Normal Adult
      1. Range: 55-100 ml (typical 70 kg male = 70 ml)
  4. Stroke Index
    1. Average stroke output of heart per cycle (Stroke Volume) adjusted for body surface area
    2. SI = CI/HR
      1. Where CI = Stroke Index
      2. Where HR = Heart Rate
    3. Normal Adult
      1. Range: 20-40 ml/m2

III. Physiology

  1. Stroke Volume components
    1. Preload
      1. End-diastolic volume (EDV)
    2. End-systolic volume (ESV) depends on the ejection fraction (what percentage of EDV is ejected from the left ventricle)
      1. Ventricular Contractality
        1. Force of ventricular contraction or inotropy
      2. Ventricular Afterload
        1. Force against which the left ventricle pumps
  2. Cardiac Output components
    1. Product of Heart Rate and Stroke Volume

Definition (MSHCZE) Zkr. MOS – objem krve, který srdce, resp. levá srdeční komora, přečerpá za jednu minutu, minutový srdeční výdej. Běžně cca 5 l za minutu. (cit. Velký lékařský slovník online, 2013 http://lekarske.slovniky.cz/ )
Definition (MSH) The volume of BLOOD passing through the HEART per unit of time. It is usually expressed as liters (volume) per minute so as not to be confused with STROKE VOLUME (volume per beat).
Definition (CSP) volume of blood passing through the heart per unit of time; expressed as liters (volume) per minute so as not to be confused with stroke volume (volume per beat).

Ontology: Stroke Volume (C0038455)

Definition (MSH) The amount of BLOOD pumped out of the HEART per beat, not to be confused with cardiac output (volume/time). It is calculated as the difference between the end-diastolic volume and the end-systolic volume.
Definition (NCI) The difference in a cardiac ventricle's blood capacity taken at times of minimum and maximum blood content. This is end diastolic volume less end systolic volume.(Dr. Joseph A. Thie)
