The possibilities of applying the laws of dynamics to the study of myocardial mechanics are remarkable and to some extent neglected to characterize ventricular performance by the imaging techniques. There are potentially useful applications derived from the analyses of Doppler flow velocity profiles of left ventricular outflow to be applied to the study of cardiovascular dynamics. They include ejection force, pressure-volume work and ventricular power. All these variables require measurements that are easy to obtain even during a standard examination, like stroke volume, ventricular outflow velocity, and the velocity-time integral.
