topic: cardiac output
what is it and what is its equation??
co = rate of o2 consumption/(arteial o2 content minus venous o2 content)

topic: mean arterial pressure
what is it and what is its equation??
 MAP = cardiac output x total peripheral resistance

topic: stroke volume
what is it and what is its equation??
 SV = CO/HR = EDVESV
 SV is effected by contractility, afterload and preload
 inc SV when inc preload, dec afterload, or inc contractility

topic: ejection fraction
what is it and what is its equation??
 EF = SV/EDV = [EDVESV]/EDV
 EF is an index of ventricular contractility
 normally > or = 55%
 it dec in systolic failure

topic: resistance
what is it and what is its equation??
R = driving pr(ΔP) / flow(Q)
R = 8η(viscosity)(length)/πr ^{4
}total resistance of vessels in series = R1+R2+R3....
 1/total resistance in parallel = 1/R1+1/R2+1/R3........
 viscosity depends mostly on hematocrit
 viscosity inc in
 a) polycythemia
 b) hyperproteinemic states (multiple myeloma)
 c) hereditary spherocytosis
 viscosity decreases in anemia
 arterioles account for most of the TPR and thus regulate capillary flow

 J_{v} = net fluid flow = (K_{f})(P_{net})

 d) inc in intestitial fluid colloid osmotic pr (lymphatic blockade)

topic: renal clearance
what is it and what is its equation??
C_{x} = U_{x}V/P_{x
volume of plasma from which the substance is cleared completely per unit timeCx < GFR: net tubular reabsroption of XCx > GFR: net tubular secretion of XCx = GFR: no net secretion or reabsorptionUx  urine conc of XPx  plasma conc of XV  urine flow rateunits of CL  mL/min
}

topic: glomerular filtration rate
what is it and what is its equation??
GFR = U _{inulin} x V/P _{inulin} = C _{inulin}_{}
 GFR = K_{f}[(P_{GC}  P_{bs})  (Π_{GC}  Π_{bs})]
 inulin clearance can be used to calculate GFR because it is freely filtered and is neither reabsorbed nor secreted
 GC  glomerular capillary
 BS  bowman's space
 normal GFR ~ 100 ml/min
 creatinine clearance is an app measure of GFR
 Slightly overestimates GFR as creatinine is moderately secreted by the renal tubules
 incremental reductions in GFR define the stages of chronic kidney disease

topic: effective renal plasma flow
what is it and what is its equation??
 ERPF can be estimated using PAH clearance because it is both filtered and actively secreted in the proximal tubule
 all PAH entering the kidney is excreted
 ERPF underestimates true RPF by ~10%

topic: renal blood flow
what is it and what is its equation??
renal blood flow = RPF/(1Hct)

topic: filteration fraction
what is it and what is its equation??
 FF = GFR/RPF
 normal FF is 20%
 filtered load = GFR x Plasma conc
 GFR can be estimated by creatinine clearance
 RPF is best estimated with PAH clearance

what is it and what is its equation??

topic: physiological dead space
what is it and what is its equation??
 V_{D} = physiological dead space = antomical dead space of conducting airways plus functional dead space in alveoli; apex of healthy lung is the largest contributor of func dead space. Volume of inspired air that does not take part in gas exhange
 V_{T} = tidal volume
 Paco2 = arterial Pco2
 Peco2 = expired air Pco2
 code: Taco, Paco, Peco, Paco (refers to the order of variables in eq)

topic: pulmonary vascular resistance
what is it and what is its equation??
 PVR = (P_{pulm artery } P_{L atrium})/ cardiac output
 remember: ΔP = QxR; so R = ΔP/Q
 R = 8ηl/πr^{4}_{}
 P_{pulm artery }=pr in pulm artery
 P_{lt atrium }= pr in lt atrium
 η = viscosity of blood
 l = vessel length
 r = vessel radius

topic: alveolar gas equation
what is it and what is its equation??
 PAo_{2} = PIo_{2 } (PaCO_{2}/R)
 can normally be approximated to PA0_{2} = 150  (PaCO_{2}/0.8)
 PAo2 = alveolar Po2
 PIo2 = Po2 in inspired air
 PaCo2 = arterial Pco2
 R = respiratiory quotient = co2 produced/o2 consumed
 Aa gradient may occur in hypoxemia; causes include shunting, V/Q mismatch, fibrosis (impairs diffusion)
