Power = force×velocity
=(pressure×area)×(distance travelled per unit time)
= pressure × (area×distance travelled) per unit time
= pressure × volume per unit time

No. of beats per minute = 72
beats per second = 72/60= 6/5 = 1.2
volume pumped per second = 70×1.2 = 84 ml = 8.4×10^(-5)m³
pressure = 12 mm Hg = 1600 Pa

Power = 1600×8.4×10^(-5) = 0.1344 J/s

I take pressure given as pressure in terms of mm of mercury column.

Power = energy / time
= Force * distance / time = Pressure * area * distance / time
= Pressure * volume / time
= 12 /1000 m * 13,600 kg/m² * 10 m/sec² * 70 /(1000 *1000) m³ * (72 / 60 sec)
= 12 * 13600 *10 *70 * 72 / (1000*1000*1000*60)  watts
=  137.088 milli watts
= 0.137 Watts
=========================================
Volume of blood pumped from heart = blood flow rate
=  70 ml * 72 / 60 sec = 84 ml / sec

Pressure = 12 /1000 m * 13,600 kg/m² * 10 m/sec² = 1632 N/m² or Pa

Power = pressure * flow rate = 1632 * 84 = 137.088 milli Watts
