  2. Term used when the heart is at rest
  3. Surge of blood felt in the arteries due to contraction of the ventricle
  4. The amount of blood that leaves the left ventricle each beat
    stroke volume
  5. The amount of blood that leaves the heart every minute
    cardiac output
  6. A measure of the force generated by contraction of the heart muscle with a given volume of blood in the vesicles
  7. Blood volume remaining in the ventricles at the end of ventricular diastole
    end diastolic volume
  8. The sum of the formed elements and plasma volumes in the vascular system
    blood volume
  9. The number of beats per minute your heart makes
    heart rate
  10. Pressure squeezing blood out of abdominal veins and forced into thoracic veins
    venous return
  11. The volume of blood in each ventricle at the end of ventricular systole
    end systolic volume
  12. The relatively longer the cardiac muscle fibers are stretched by filling, the greater the force of contraction
    frank starling law
  13. The volume of blood filling the relaxed ventricles prior to their contraction
  14. The force required to open the semilunar valves to eject blood from the ventricles
  15. Contraction of limb muscles as occurs during normal activity that promotes venous return by the pumping action on veins within muscle
    skeletal muscle pump
  16. The difficulty with which the molecules of a fluid flow past one another
  17. The maximum pressure achieved during ventricular contraction
    systolic pressure
  18. The lowest pressure that remains in the arteries before the next ventricular contraction
    diastolic pressure
  19. Refers to pressure in arteries supplied by branches of the aorta
    blood pressure
  20. Force produced from friction between the blood and the walls of the blood vessels
    peripheral resistance
  21. Pressure in the right atrium where all veins drain into; affects the pressure in the peripheral veins
    central venous pressure
