Define Blood Pressure (BP) in mathmatical terms.
BP = CO x PR
Mathamatically define Cardiac Output (CO)
CO = Heart Rate (HR) x Stroke Volume (SV)
Define Periferal Resistance (PR)
(MAP - MVP) / CO
Vasoconstriction / Vasodialation
Define Stroke Volume (SV)
End Systolic Volume (ESV) - End Systolic Volume (ESV)

What are the "Sounds of Karotkoff?"
