Why is the end systolic volume (ESV) larger than the end diastolic volume (EDV) in the PV-Loop Module's Hemodynamics table?

The catheter's volume sensing segments are not fully in the left ventricle.  This temporally mis-aligns the pressure and volume data, and causes the LabChart PV-Loop Module to incorrectly identify the EDV and ESV values.
