End-diastolic volume

From WikiLectures

End-diastolic volume (EDV, telodiastolic volume or final diastolic volume) is volume of blood in a ventricle after the end of diastole, i.e. after the closure of atrioventicular valves. EDV remains in the chamber until the start of the ejection phase, i.e. until the semilunar valves open. Under normal conditions in a healthy adult, EDV is about 130 ml in each ventricle (not in both).
