Bradycardia is a noted feature of breath-hold immersion of the face in water, due to which the ventricular diastole will be prolonged, which in turn will lead to an increase in the LV EDV.
The third phase is the D wave (second peak), representing early ventricular diastole. At this time the AV valves open, atrial pressure decreases, and venous return increases a second time.
During the left ventricular diastole stage, the activity of the sarcoplasmic reticulum calcium ATPase (Serca2a) is crucially important [26].
During ventricular diastole the LA is directly exposed to LV filling pressure.
Conversely, with repeated volume load stress associated with endurance training, myocyte phenotype changes lead to an increase in left ventricular cavity allowing for an increase in left ventricular diastole without increases in left ventricular mass (16).
(3) Ventricular diastole includes isovolumic relaxation, early passive filling after mitral valve opening, and active filling during atrial contraction.
LAV at the end of ventricular systole ([LAV.sub.max]), the smallest LAV after atrial emptying at the end of ventricular diastole ([LAV.sub.min] and the LAV at the onset of atrial emptying coincided with pre-p wave on the electrocardiography ([LAV.sub.pre-pw]) (23,27).
