All of the following are true EXCEPT:A. The relationship between EDP and preload is linear
Clinicians frequently use EDP as a surrogate for end-diastolic volume (EDV), but EDP is determined not only by volume but also by the diastolic compliance of the ventricular chamber. Ventricular compliance is altered by various pathologic conditions and pharmacologic agents. Furthermore, the relationship between EDP and true preload is not linear, but rather is exponential.
