Sample text

This can cause their resting heart rates to exceed 100. Therefore, rather than concern oneself with the absolute number, the informed clinician assesses resting heart rate for the assurance that it is within normal or expected limits. So, what is a heart rate that is too low or too high? Any heart rate that is associated with cardiac or pulmonary symptoms at rest should be considered abnormal. Generally, a resting heart rate of less than 40 is problematic, at least in a clinical setting. Because cardiac output must be 4 to 6 L per minute for sufficient tissue perfusion, a stroke volume of 100 mL is necessary if the heart rate is 40 beats per minute.

It is the product of the volume of gas moved in and out of the alveoli (VA) and airways with each breath (VD); the tidal volume (VT); and the number of breaths taken each minute, the respiratory rate (f). Therefore: . V E = VT × f where VT = VA + VD The volume of alveolar gas (VA) in the tidal volume represents the volume of fresh gas entering the respiratory zone with each breath. Alveolar ventilation, a = VA × f, is extremely important because it represents the amount of fresh air available for gas exchange per minute.

Ca2+ in the cytosol acts as a coenzyme by binding with a regulatory protein (troponin-C) on the thin filaments, thus inducing the contraction process. Relaxation occurs as the sarcoplasmic reticulum sequesters the freed Ca2+. However, in cardiac muscle, the force of contraction is related to the amount of Ca2+ released at the initiation of contraction and thus available for binding, which in turn is dependent on the amount of Ca2+ actually available for release by the sarcoplasmic reticulum upon depolarization, a variable impacted by heart rate.
