perfusion
inadequate perfusion leading to shock
hypoperfusion
ratio of blood pumped from the ventricle to the amount remaining at the end of diastole
ejection fraction
the amount of blood ejected by the heart in one cardiac contraction
stroke volume
the pressure within the ventrilces at the end of diastole, or end-diastolic volume
preload
force of the strength of a contraction of the heart
cardiac contractile force
more the myocardium is stretched, the more forceful the subsequent contraction will be.
