    Contractility, MAP, and Kinetic energy of blood

    Hi everyone, It would seem to me that blood pressure would be due to the amount of blood in a vessel as well as the force that blood was ejected from the left ventricle with since blood ejected with a greater force could exert a greater force on the wall of an artery. However, the equation for...

    Stroke volume, Total peripheral resistance and Cardiac output

    Hey guys so I'm slightly confused about these 3 things. From what I understand, Blood pressure= Cardiac output x Total peripheral resistance Cardiac output= Stroke volume * Heart rate Stroke volume depends on 3 things- preload, contractility, and afterload. When baroreceptors detect a low...
