Increasing TPR causes a decrease in both cardiac output and venous return Figure 314

(a) A counterclockwise rotation of the venous return curve occurs. Increased TPR results in decreased venous return as blood is retained on the arterial side.

(b) A downward shift of the cardiac output curve is caused by the increased aortic pressure (increased afterload) as the heart pumps against a higher pressure.

(c) As a result of these simultaneous changes, a new equilibrium point is established at which both cardiac output and venous return are decreased, but right atrial pressure is unchanged.

(2) Decreasing TPR causes an increase in both cardiac output and venous return (not illustrated).

(a) A clockwise rotation of the venous return curve occurs. Decreased TPR results in increased venous return as more blood is allowed to flow back to the heart from the arterial side.

(b) Upward shift of the cardiac output curve is caused by the decreased aortic pressure (decreased afterload) as the heart pumps against a lower pressure.

(c) As a result of these simultaneous changes, a new equilibrium point is established at which both cardiac output and venous return are increased.

Diabetes 2

Diabetes is a disease that affects the way your body uses food. Normally, your body converts sugars, starches and other foods into a form of sugar called glucose. Your body uses glucose for fuel. The cells receive the glucose through the bloodstream. They then use insulin a hormone made by the pancreas to absorb the glucose, convert it into energy, and either use it or store it for later use.
