Co is the quantity of blood the heart pumps.
Specifically the liters per minute. It is a measure of cardiac function. Ef is the percent volume change of the left ventricle between full squeeze and relaxed. It is also a measure of function co is often measured in the can lab and ef by echocardiography.
