Interactive Biology created a presentation called What is Stroke Volume and How to Calculate it. in under 7 minutes. Stroke volume is the amount of blood pumped by one ventricle during each heart beat.

Few definitions you need to know:

  • Systole: Contraction of the heart
  • Diastole: Relaxation of the heart
  • End diastolic volume: Amount of blood in the ventricle right before ventricular contraction
  • End systolic volume: Amount of blood left in the ventricle right after ventricular contraction
