By Dennis T. Mangano PhD, MD (auth.), T. H. Stanley, P. L. Bailey (eds.)

Anesthesiology and the Cardiovascular Patient comprises the edited shows of the forty first Annual Postgraduate path in Anesthesiology, February 1996. The chapters mirror new facts and ideas in the common framework of the pathophysiology and administration of surgical applicants with heart problems. The textbook will function a car to convey some of the most recent suggestions in anesthesiology to people who didn't attend the convention. each one bankruptcy is a quick yet sharply targeted glimpse of the present curiosity in anesthesia. This quantity, in addition to previous and destiny volumes, displays the fast and carrying on with evolution of anesthesiology within the overdue 20th century.

Example text

This phase ends with the equilibration of atrial and ventricular pressures. Ill. Diastasis In the absence of tachycardia, rapid filling ends after approximately onethird of the diastolic interval. Diastasis extends from the time of pressure equilibrium between atrium and ventricle until atrial contraction. Left ventricular filling is slow. The trans mitral flow continues because of inertia (7). A small amount of blood returning from the pulmonary veins contributes usually less than 5% to ventricular filling (13).

Finally, near the end of diastole, ventricular filling is once again augmented by atrial contraction. VENTRICULAR PRESSURE-VOLUME RELATIONS Measurement of the instantaneous change in ventricular volume and pressure forms the basis for analysis of ventricular function by the pressurevolume diagram or loop. If the recorded ventricular pressure and volumes from the Wiggers diagram are plotted simultaneously, a loop results which can be used to display various phases of the cardiac cycle (Figure 2).

In a series of studies of the interactions between anesthesia and ischemia, we have shown that the increase in stiffness occurs when coronary flow decreases by 50% or more, and not only with coronary occlusion. Similarly, the unstressed length (at zero ventricular pressure) increases once coronary flow has been reduced by 50% or more, and left ventricular end-diastolic pressure (LVEDP) also increases (31). However, it is not easy to understand how an increase in stiffness in a limited area of the anterior wall of the left ventricle, representing less than 25% of its mass, could cause an increase in LVEDP, as the latter should occur only when a generalized increase in stiffness has occurred.
