  • lower separation [mark]"), also known as a diastole, was an interpunct developed in late classical and Byzantine Greek texts before the separation of words by spaces was commonplace. (wikipedia.org)
  • period
  • The systole is not altered in length, but the diastole is very much prolonged, and since this is the period not only of cardiac rest but also of cardiac "feeding" - the coronary vessels being compressed and occluded during systole - the result is greatly to benefit the nutrition of the cardiac muscle.

  • level
  • At the cellular level diastole can be considered as beginning when ATP hydrolyses and actin-myosin crossbridges become unlinked allowing for sarcomeric relaxation. (bmj.com)
  • The processes that impair diastole at the cellular level also alter active mechanical relaxation and subsequent filling. (bmj.com)
