The relationship between stretched myocardial muscle fibers and decreased cardiac output is also noted in Laplace's Theorem (Hudak & Gallo, 1973, p.
Renal dysfunction is common, related to decreased cardiac output as well as venous congestion of the kidney from right heart failure.
This decreased cardiac output could be due to shifting of blood volume from the central circulation to the splanchnic circulation or to the vasorelaxation of the sphanchnic vessels.
In contrast to 18 normotensive men and women who were long-term practitioners of transcendental meditation, the 14 normotensive control subjects who were observed while resting with eyes-closed showed increased total peripheral resistance and decreased cardiac output and stroke volume, the researchers reported.
Such drugs include non-selective vasodilators (nitroglycerin or sodium nitroprusside), which are associated with decreased cardiac output, potential organ ischemia, and other adverse effects.
Ineffective atrial contractions and/or a rapid ventricular response can result in a decreased cardiac output.
