list structures in carotid sheath and orientation
lateral: internal jugular vein. medial: common carotid artery, vagus nerve (posterior)
what artery supplies the SA and AV
RCA
what does right dominant mean?

where is the most common artery occlusion
LAD
where does LAD run
anterior interventricular septum
when do coronary arteries fill?

cardiac output x TPR
cardiac output formula
co = HR x SV
how to calculate MAP (BP) from systolic and diastolic pressures
map = 1/3 systolic + 2/3 diastolic
how do you calculate pulse pressure?
systolic pressure - diastolic pressure
what is pulse pressure a rough approximation of?
stroke volume
calculate stroke volume
SV = EDV-ESV
what 3 factors alter stroke volume?
contractility, afterload, preload
