Diastolic dysfunctio: Good question....The heart in diastole relaxes and the fibers stretch out as the heart fills. When there is diastolic dysfunction the heart doesn't relax normally and it takes higher pressures to stretch out the fibers to where they can efficiently shorten for systole. This is somewhat oversimplified but hopefully gives you the general idea..... Grade 1 is mild diastolic dysfunction.
