Cardiovascular overview study guide As you go through this module make sure you recall and understand all the concepts and definitions outlined on the learning goals screen as they are briefly outlined in the module. Stroke Volume (SV) – the amount of blood pumped out of one ventricle of the heart as the result of a single contraction Heart Rate (HR) – the number of beats per minute Cardiac Output (Q) – a measurement of the blood flow through the heart to the systemic circulation. a-vO2 difference – amount of oxygen extracted by tissue; difference between the arterial and venous PO2 PO2 – partial pressure of oxygen; PO2 in lungs > PO2 in blood; PO2 in blood > PO2 in tissue PCO2 – partial pressure of carbon dioxide; PCO2 in lungs < PCO2 in blood; PCO2 in blood < PCO2 in tissue Anaerobic threshold – the O2 consumption level above which aerobic energy production is supplemented by anaerobic mechanisms during exercise, resulting in a sustained increase in lactate concentration and metabolic acidosis. Venous Return – the blood returning to the heart via the great veins and coronary sinus.
