What decreases cardiac output without change in heart rate PAWP or SVR Is it preload afterload or contractility?

A change in cardiac output without any change in the heart rate, pulmonary artery wedge pressure (PAWP = equated to preload) or systemic vascular resistance (SVR = afterload) would have to be due to a change in the contractility of the heart. Cardiac output (CO) is roughly equal to stroke volume x heart rate. Stroke volume is related to preload, contractility, and afterload. As you can see, the only variables you have not controlled for is cardiac contractility.

Becoming Familiar with Commercial Leases?

Before leasing commercial property, become acquainted with the terms of the lease. Leasing commercial property for a business is different than leasing residential property. Get clear understanding of the amount of the rent, whether it is to be paid weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly. The length of the lease is another important factor. You can not change or break a commercial lease. It is legally binding. Commercial leases are not a standard form lease but each is customized based on what type of business the landlord desires or is willing to lease the space out for. Examine commercial leases before signing, and make sure you understand the agreement that you are entering into.

In a commercial lease if the tenant changes locks does the tenant give a key to the landlord?

Yes. The building belongs to the landlord and needs the key in case of an emergency, or if a tenant abandons the property. Also, you should probably check with the landlord prior to changing locks. There might be a clause in the lease stating that only the landlord can change a lock, not the tenant.

If your tenant is in default of the lease does the landlord have to right to change the locks?

Matters such a locks are usually covered in a written lease. If it's not covered or if there is no written lease you probably can. BUT, you must give the landlord a key. The landlord has the right to enter in an emergency and upon reasonable notice to the tenant to inspect the premises. Keep in mind that landlord / tenant relationships without a written lease are generally governed by state law, so the conclusion may differ from state to state.

In many commercial leases the tenant is EXPECTED to change the locks and the landlord may not want to even have a key. For example, when renting a self-storage unit, the tenant would typically add his or her own lock to the unit. Upon default or emergency, the landlord would simply break the lock to gain entry, then put on a new lock.
