Question

# Stroke volume is the amount of blood the left ventricle pumps out in one cardiac cycle. This is around 70ml. Now, to get the cardiac output, we have to multiply (i)__ with the normal heart rate of (ii)__ /min and we get (iii)__ ml/min. This means that in one minute, each ventricle of a normal heart pumps about (iv)__ litres of blood out.

A

(i) Stroke volume, (ii) 72, (iii) 5,040, (iv) 5

Solution

## The correct option is A (i) Stroke volume, (ii) 72, (iii) 5,040, (iv) 5 Stroke volume is the amount of blood the left ventricle pumps out in one cardiac cycle. This is around 70 ml. Cardiac output is the volume of blood pumped out by each ventricle per minute. Now to get cardiac output, we have to multiply stroke volume with the normal heart rate of 72 beats/min and we get 5,040 ml/min. This means that in one minute, each ventricle of a normal heart pumps about 5 litres of blood.
