Regulation of Cardiac Contractility
by R. John Solaro
Publisher: Morgan & Claypool Life Sciences 2011
Number of pages: 44
Contractility describes the relative ability of the heart to eject a stroke volume (SV) at a given prevailing afterload (arterial pressure) and preload (end-diastolic volume; EDV). Various measures of contractility are related to the fraction as the SV/EDV or the ejection fraction, and the dynamics of ejection as determined from maximum pressure rise in the ventricles or arteries or from aortic flow velocities determined by echocardiography.

High quality treatment may save a patient's life or result in reduced disability. These guidelines provide a framework for such care and are intended to be just as practical and relevant for non-specialists as for specialists.

Atrial fibrillation (AF) is a common type of supraventricular tachyarrhythmia. While a supraventricular tachyarrhythmia is a tachycardic rhythm originating above the ventricular tissue, AF is characterized by uncoordinated atrial activation ...
