What happens if a man has a cardiac reserve of 400% and maximum cardiac output is 20 l/min, what is his resting cardiac output?

What happens if a man has a cardiac reserve of 400% and maximum cardiac output is 20 l/min, what is his resting cardiac output?

Great question: Sounds about normal for average individuals, but low for highly trained athletes. Resting cardiac output generally around 5 liters/min and 400% is 4 x the resting output. Not sure how you tested this, but it sounds about right for an average, healthy individual. If you are a highly trained athlete, or if you have symptoms of fatigue or shortness of breath, you may want to speak to a physician. ...Read more
