    • Blood pressure =cardiac output x peripheral resistance
    • Cardiac output=heart rate x stroke volume
    • If the others are held constant, *usually an increase in HR will increase blood pressure and an increase in stroke volume will increase pressure
    • Stroke volume is affected by preload, afterload, and total volume in the system
    • Increased preload increases stroke volume (to a point) via the Frank-Starling law of the ...
