Ventricular Systole (Contraction) a. Impulse -> AV node -> ventricles to depolarize (QRS Complex) i. Increase pressure in ventricles ii. Closing of AV valves iii. All valves closed (isovolumetric contraction) => 0.05 secs iv. Increased pressure v. Contraction (120-130 mmHg) vi. Both SL valves open vii. Ejection of blood (ventricular ejection) when pressure increases => 0.25 secs viii. TOTAL TIME: 0.3 secs ix. End-Systolic Volume still left in the ventricles => 60 mL 2. Relaxation Period and Ventricular Filling 13 of 14 a. At the end of the heart beat i. T wave ii. V relax b. All 4 chambers are in diastole c. Backflow of blood from aorta and pulmonary track (0.4 secs) => SL valves close produce a bump (dicrotic wave) d. Due to ventricular relaxation, pressure decreased in ventricles e. Open AV valve => rapid ventricular filling 3. Atrial Contraction a. SA Node results in depolarization of atria (P-Wave) b. Atria contract (systole) => 0.1 secs i. Flow more blood in ventricles c. Total blood in ventricles is about 130 mL/each at the end of ventricular diastole (end-diastolic volume) d. SL valves are closed e. Atrial systole contributes only 20-30% of the total blood volume in the ventricles Cardiac Output (CO)  Amount of blood pumped out be EACH (each ventricle) side of the heart in 1 minutes  Product of heart rate and stroke volume --> blood pumping out of heart or ventricle Stroke Volume (SV)  Volume of blood pumped out by A ventricle with each heart beat o SV increases as <-------> increased ventricular contraction  Normal resting SV = 70 mL/beat  Normal resting HR = 75 beats/minute  So average adult: CO = HR/min X SV/beat = 75X70 = 5250 mL  Normal blood volume = 5-6 L  CO increases when HR increases and/or SV increases  CO decreases when HR decreases and/or SV decreases Cardiac Reserve  Ratio between maximum cardiac output a person can achieve = CO at rest 14 of 14
