It has to be separated from changes in the performance due to a change in loading conditions” [415]. The sympathetic tone plays an important role in the regulation of contractility. The positive inotropic effect of increased sympathetic tone enables the heart, without a change in diastolic filling (without a change in the preload), to eject a higher SV or to maintain SV in case of increased afterload or increased resistance to ejection [418]. Kumar [9] found in healthy volunteers that the increase in SV due to volume loading is predominantly caused by an increase in contractility and only in minor part by the Frank-Starling mechanism, hence confirming previous results [155, 156].

E. e. sepsis, MR) [442]. Whilst cardiac work describes the transferral of energy from the cardiac contraction to the development of blood flow [132], cardiac power output (CPO) describes the amount of energy generated by the heart that the whole systemic vasculature receives at the level of the aortic root [132]. Thus, it characterises the recruitable reserve still available in case of acute failure or shock in order to maintain the perfusion of the vital organs and hence reflects the severity of the patient’s illness [132].
