I just wanted to let you know that even though I'm looking quite old, I'm still a millenial.
So I just had a "New Year, New Me" moment and my resolution is to become a new and improved version of myself in a couple of weeks.
Don't worry, my wisdom won't change. You're still going to find the same useful information here. Stay tuned!
E-Echo will be continuing to be available after this year! A new company is taking over.
Calcs>Aortic Regurgitation>Decay Slope>1
to get an AR Severity PHT.
1: Obtain a PWD or a CWD of the aortic valve.
The flow profile of the aortic valve, in aortic regurgitation
will show a diastolic flow profile that decays over
the diastolic time period. Utilizing the caliper
function, mark the Vmax and Vmin to calculate the
slope and pressure half time of the diastolic flow
profile. A steep slope and a short PHT will
be indicative of severe aortic regurgitation.
