Stroke volume is measured in millilitres but is also described as an ejection fraction: the proportion of the end diastolic volume (EDV) that is pushed out with each contraction.

Severe aortic stenosis results in 1) reduced ventricular stroke volume due to increased after load, which decreases ejection velocity, 2) increased end-systolic volume and 3) a compensatory increase in end diastolic volume and pressure.
