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.
Pulmonary Regurgitation Decay Slope
Calcs>Pulmonary Regurgitation>Decay Slope>1
to get an PR Severity PHT.
1: Obtain a PWD or a CWD of the pulmonary valve.
The flow profile of the pulmonary valve 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 pulmonic regurgitation.
