The valves are named after the shape – the tricuspid having three leaflets, the mitral only two resembling the mitre. The bottom panel shows the distribution of pressures in the circulation with high pressure system (left) in the arteries and low pressure system (right) in the veins. The arrows inside the vessels and in the hearts chamber indicate blood flow. When the pressure in the left ventricle exceeds the pressure in the aorta, the aortic valve opens and the aorta expands due to the elasticity of its walls.

An alternative approach is muscle stimulation. This can be performed in a limited muscle group and for a much longer period of time than voluntary contractions without presenting an increased demand on cardiac output. Short bursts of high frequency stimulation increased indeed the strength and bulk of thigh muscles in patients with heart failure; low frequency electrical stimulation of thigh and calf muscles increased strength and volume of calf muscles. 28 Stimulation also increases emptying of veins and thus reduces venous pressure.

However, the amount of exercise is restricted, particularly in elderly patients, by the capacity of their cardiac output that may be limited by additional complications such as heart disease.
