In this 2-part webinar, Dr. Dan Burkhoff provides an overview of the fundamental principles of preload, afterload, contractility and lusitropy (diastolic properties), how these are quantified on the pressure-volume diagram, and how they are affected in heart failure.

Part 2: Advanced Concepts

A continuation of Part 1, advanced concepts of Pressure-Volume Analysis are discussed including best-practices to follow in the lab during data acquisition and statistical analysis. This webinar also includes an extended Q&A session with Dr. Burkhoff, where he also addresses questions from the audience received during seminar one.
