Definitions * Ejection fraction - ratio of blood pumped from the ventricle to the amount remaining at the end of diastole Stroke volume - the amount of blood ejected by the ventricle in one contraction. Avg. is 60 -100ml (approx. 2/3 the total volume of the left ventricle) Preload - the pressure within the ventricles at the end of diastole Afterload - the resistance against which the heart must pump Cardiac Output - the amount of blood pumped by the heart in one minute

Nervous System Cardiac Effect Sympathetic - increases heart rate and conduction force via the cardiac plexus by norepinephrine action on the beta-1 receptors Parasympathetic - slows heart rate and atrioventricular conduction via the vagus nerve by acetylcholine action on the SA and AV tissue (making them less excitable)

Roles of Electrolytes in Cardiac Function Na+ =Deporlarization Ca++ = Depolarization and contraction K+ = Repolarization Cl- = Alters timing of voltage changes during action potential
