Dilatation of the heart and arteries, when the blood enters their cavities. It is the opposite movement to systole, in which the heart and arteries contract to send forth the blood. Diastole and systole are, consequently, successive movements. Diastole, Motus cordis diastalticus, occurs simultaneously in the two ventricles. The almost inappreciable time, which elapses between the diastole and systole has been called perisystole, and that which succeeds to the diastole, peridiastole. When we speak of the contraction or systole of the heart, as well as of its diastole or dilatation, we mean that of the ventricles. This dilatation is active.
