Clarify:cardiac output too high at rest? Echo:stroke volume 100ml by 70 bpm, that means cardiac out:7l/min; cardiac index would be 3, 57l/min*m2.Txs

Clarify:cardiac output too high at rest? Echo:stroke volume 100ml by 70 bpm, that means cardiac out:7l/min; cardiac index would be 3, 57l/min*m2.Txs

High Cardiac Output: Cardiac output is calculated by multiplying stroke volume by heart rate. Since the amount of blood pumped by the heart is dependent on body surface area ie. A larger person needs more blood supply. If it is more than 6l/min in an average person, at rest , and associated with symptoms, the cause must be looked into. ...Read more

How do you acccurately calculateyour resting metabolic rate and body mass index/ body fat %?

Many methods: There are many methods, with varying accuracy. Bmi is simply wt/ht(2). A simple method for %fat is impedance, and trainers often use them. Gold standard for %fat is underwater weighing, bodpod, or dexa. Rmr requires a metabolic cart which is used in hospitals and research labs. Many of these are relegated to research labs. It is usually not necessary to know all this to be healthy. ...Read more
