For clinical purposes, left ventricular preload is usually defined in terms of left ventricular end-diastolic volume.
In particular, the LV ejection fraction (LVEF) was calculated by dividing the difference between LV end-diastolic volume and LV end-systolic volume by the LV end-diastolic volume.
As the preload increases the left ventricular filling increases leading to increased LV end-diastolic volume in order to maintain a high stroke work.
PRWS is the linear regression of the pressure volume (PV) loop area and end-diastolic volume, measured during acute preload reduction.
All also had evidence of cardiac remodeling at baseline, defined as a left ventricular end-diastolic volume index greater than 75 mL/[m.
LVEF, left ventricular ejection fraction; LVEDP, left ventricular end-diastolic pressure; LVEDVI, left ventricular end-diastolic volume index; LVESVI, left ventricular end-systolic volume index; PAP mean, mean pulmonary arterial pressure; PAP diast.
Moreover, if diastolic function is truly normal, it must remain normal both at rest and during the stress of a variable heart rate, stroke volume, end-diastolic volume, and blood pressure.
