16 Biochemical changes with age have been reported including alterations in sarcoplasmic reticulum and Ca2+ uptake across membranes. 17 These biochemical alterations result in prolongation of isovolumetric relaxation. These changes may be of functional importance, particularly with regard to reduced diastolic function and cardiac failure with preserved ejection fraction. Changes in cardiac physiology with ageing Healthy ageing is associated with little change in systolic function or cardiac output at rest.
