When the ventricles are both full of blood (under pressure), the healthy heart is holding the maximum volume of blood. The typical healthy ventricle can hold approximately 120ml of blood at the end of that filling period. Therefore, the maximum blood in the heart at the peak of its volume is 240ml.
