  1. Name the phases of diastole
    rapid filling → diastasis → atrial kick
  2. What happens that allows the filling in diastole?
    AV valve pops open because of pressure gradient
  3. What is diastasis?
    flow in ventricles slows as pressure equalizes
  4. Describe the atrial kick
    atria contracts=squeezes remainder blood into ventricles
  5. What perfuses during diastole
    coronary arteries
  6. What are the phases of systole
    isovol contraction → ventricular ejection → prodiastole → isovol relaxation
  7. What is isovolumertric contraction
    ventricles contract but there is NO blood flow
  8. What is ventricular ejection
    valves open=blood pours OUT of ventricles
  9. What is protodiastole
    flow slows as pressure equalizes
  10. What is isovolumetric relaxation
    ventricles relax=valves close
