Cardiac, Vascular, Pulmonary

  1. Cardiac Output
    The amount of blood pumped out of the heart through the aorta each minute
  2. Stroke Volume
    The amount of blood ejected from the ventricles with each contraction
  3. Normal BP Values
    • Infants: 60-90/30-55
    • Child: 90-110/50-70
    • Adult: 100-140/60-90
  4. Depressed QRS Complex
    Heart failure, ischemia, pericardial effusion, COPD
  5. Elevated QRS
    Hypertrophy of the myocardium
  6. Q Wave Abnormality
    Previous myocardial infarction
  7. ST Segment Elevation
    Acute myocardial infarction
  8. Normal Heart Rate Values
    • Infant: 100 to 130 bpm
    • Child: 80-100 bpm
    • Adult: 60 to 100 bpm
  9. Normal Respiration Rates
    • Infant: 30 to 50 respirations per minute
    • Adult: 12 to 18 resp per min
  10. Congestive Heart Failure
    • The heart's inability to maintain a cardiac output that is adequate to meet the demands of the tissues
    • Insufficient stroke volume
