end-di·a·stol·ic vol·ume

the capacity or the amount of blood in the ventricle immediately before a cardiac contraction begins; a measurement of cardiac filling between beats, related to diastolic function.

These include variables such as CVP, PAOP and ventricular end-diastolic volume. Dynamic variables are characterised by measurement of variation in haemodynamic measurements in response to changes in cardiac loading conditions".
Although the preload measures of global end-diastolic volume index and pulmonary artery occlusion pressure correlated with cardiac output (Figure 3) in the postoperative period, readings for both were substantially above the reference range.
These measures include RV mass at end-diastole, end-diastolic volume, and ejection fraction (Bluemke et al.
Caption: Figure 5: Dispersion and linear regression between the average surface area of LV and the end-diastolic volume normalized by the body area of women per age group.
LV end-diastolic volume was significantly lower in NNBP post-CPB (122.5 [+ or -] 2.9) than in NHCA post-CPB (130.6 [+ or -] 4.1 mL) (Figure 7(b)).
The patients who have decreased myocardial contractility, for maintenance of cardiac output are very dependent on left ventricular end-diastolic volume (LVEDV) and in these patients increase of heart rate could not be efficacious15,16.
Residual volumes of the left ventricle (end-diastolic volume and end-systolic volume), stroke output, and ejection fraction were calculated using the Simpson method.
Left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF), end-diastolic volume (EDV), and end-systolic volume (ESV), are measurements of how well the heart is functioning.
