Ejection fraction measured Stroke volume / EDV
what is normal EF 55%
Preload measured by EDV and RA pressure
Afterload measured by LV = aortic pressure : increase in aortic pressure = Increase in afterload of LV RV = pulmonary artery pressure; increase in pulmonary artery pressure causes increase in afterload in RV
