Every time the heart beats blood is ejected into the aorta from the left ventricle. This is known as the stroke volume. At rest, this stroke volume equals that of the blood within the veins being returned to the heart. However, when a person is under stress the nervous system can increase the stroke volume which results in the heart pumping harder.
