Obesity, venous capacitance, and venous compliance in heart failure with preserved ejection fraction

Circulating blood volume is functionally divided between the unstressed volume, which fills the vascular space, and stressed blood volume (SBV), which generates vascular wall tension and intravascular pressure.

Splanchnic Nerve Block Mediated Changes in Stressed Blood Volume in Heart Failure

The authors estimated changes of stressed blood volume (SBV) induced by splanchnic nerve block (SNB) in patients with either decompensated or ambulatory heart failure with reduced ejection fraction (HFrEF).

Venous Tone and Stressed Blood Volume in Heart Failure: JACC Review Topic of the Week

A number of pathologic processes contribute to the elevation in cardiac filling pressures in heart failure (HF), including myocardial dysfunction and primary volume overload.
