ARDS, acronyms and the Pinocchio effect, Anaesthesia, 65, 976–979. 1 Introduction The central role of the heart within circulation has long been understood. Galen (129–200 AD) first implicated the heart in setting blood in motion but did not understand the concept of the circulation. Servetus (1511–1553) later described the right and left heart circulations (and paid for his ideas with his life) and, together with contemporaneous dissections by the Paduan anatomist Vesalius (1514–1564), provided highly detailed anatomical information on the entire cardiovascular system.

The myocardial contractility and the preload or ‘stretch’ of each ventricle at end diastole according to the Frank–Starling law of the heart [5]. The relationship between the stroke work and stroke volume and ventricular preload or atrial filling/ventricular end-diastolic pressure is shown in Fig. 8 [5]. However, in reality the additional energy needed to generate pulsatile flow should be included; this pulsatile energy is ‘stored’ by the elastic elements in the proximal arterial tree, particularly the aorta, and is important in maintaining flow during diastole.

This requires the measurement of six variables: the right and left atrial pressures (RAP, LAP: the preload), the mean systemic and pulmonary arterial pressures (MAP, PAP: the afterload) and the stroke volume and heart rate [4]. 1 Ventricular preload The predominant determinant of preload is the venous return, which is dependent on the intravascular volume, and the venous ‘tone’, which is influenced by the sympathetic nervous system, circulating catecholamines and local factors, particularly pH, lactate and nitric oxide.
