cardiac output

[′kärd·ē‚ak ′au̇t‚pu̇t]
The total blood flow from the heart during a specified period of time.

Cardiac Output


the quantity of blood ejected by the heart in one minute. It is equal to the product obtained by multiplying the systolic, or stroke, volume of blood ejected by the heart with each contraction (systole) by the number of contractions per minute (pulse frequency).
