However, a drug that increases contractility will increase myocardial oxygen consumption whereas a drug that reduces afterload will decrease myocardial oxygen consumption. Ultimately, systemic hypotension (low blood pressure) will limit improvements in ventricular performance achievable by afterload reduction alone. as °u > 1"11 ~:g ela _u ..... _-l Contractility t (/)"'" E.. o~ -; 'I: ~ Afterload HEART FAILURE ~-------------, Pulmonary congestion Left ventricular end-diastolic pressure (or end-diastolic volume) Figure 3-8.

45 Circulation EReds of Neurohormones and Cytoldne Stimulation on the Heart and the Systemic Vasculature in Heart Failure Following a primary myocardial injury, such as acute myocardial infarction or viral myocarditis, the onset of symptoms of pump failure may occur immediately, follow days of fluid retention, or follow years of maladaptive ventricular remodeling. Paradoxically in heart failure, peripheral responses to decreased ventricular function can contribute to symptoms of congestion and inadequate tissue perfusion.

It also stimulates release of aldosterone at the adrenal gland cortex and antidiuretic vasopressin from the posterior pituitary gland that contribute to increases of blood volume through its effects on the kidney to promote salt and free water reabsorption. , Angiotensin II Increased Aldosterone Synthesis -~- Sodium Retention Negative Feedback ------- ------ ---- Increased Antidiuretic Hormone Free Water Retention Increased Blood Pressure Figure 3-17.
