In the normal heart at rest, atrial systole contributes relatively little blood to the already filled ventricle. In the diseased heart, or in the exercising normal heart, the contribution of atrial systole assumes a larger importance. In clinical practice, it is common to see patients with hypertrophied ventricles who do well until they develop atrial fibrillation. The more rapid rate and the loss of atrial contraction can then precipitate congestive heart failure. 1 Normal hemodynamic values Pressure measurement Right atrium (RA) Mean pressure Right ventricle (RV) Peak-systolic pressure End-diastolic pressure Pulmonary artery Mean pressure Peak-systolic pressure End-diastolic pressure Left atrium (PCWP) Mean pressure Left ventricle (LV) Peak-systolic pressure End-diastolic pressure Aorta Mean pressure Normal value (mm Hg) Temporal relations of ECG to mechanical events Onset of P wave to RA contraction is ∼60-80 ms 2–8 Onset of Q wave to RV contraction is ∼65 ms 17–32 2–8 Onset of Q wave to RV ejection is ∼80 ms 9–19 17–32 4–13 2–12 Onset of P wave to LA contraction is ∼85 ms.

It is calculated by dividing cardiac output by BSA. 5–4 L/min. Calculating systemic vascular resistance and pulmonary vascular resistance Vascular resistance is an indicator of ventricular afterload. Systemic vascular resistance (SVR) can be calculated using the following formula: SVR = MAP − CVP × 80 CO Normal SVR is 800–1200 dynes/sec/cm5 . 30 Part 1 Basics of hemodynamics An example: If MAP = 93 mm Hg, CVP = 3 mm Hg, and CO = 5 L/min then SVR = (93 − 3)/5 = 18 × 80 = 1440 dynes/sec/cm5 Next, we will figure out pulmonary vascular resistance (PVR), which is an estimate of RV afterload.

Analysis of this phase is useful experimentally but has limited application clinically. The rapid filling period occurs immediately upon opening of the AV valve. In normal individuals, this phase accounts for the majority of ventricular filling. 3 Mechanical events of the cardiac cycle. rise in ventricular pressure. As the rate of ventricular filling declines, the slow filling phase is entered following by diastasis (a period when ventricular filling ceases). During the slow filling period in a normal heart, the atrial and ventricular pressures are similar and continued filling of the ventricles is dependent upon blood returning from the peripheral circulation (RV) or the lungs (LV).
