If 2 L of blood were injected into a normal human body, what influence would this injection have on blood pressure, cardiac output, preload, and afterload? Please elaborate.© BrainMass Inc. brainmass.com July 17, 2018, 12:25 am ad1c9bdddf
Increasing blood volume leads to a corresponding increase in blood pressure. This triggers:
1) compensation by the cardiovascular system by vasodilation and decreasing cardiac output
Heart functioning is expressed.
