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.
Isovolumic Relaxation Time
to calculate an IVRT.
1: Obtain ME 3CV. In PWD mode, place the sample
volume at the junction of the Left Ventricular Inflow
(LVI) and Left Ventricular Outflow (LVO). The
PWD flow profile will show an ejection flow profile
and an inflow flow profile. The time between
the LVI flow profile and the LVO flow profile is the
time the ventricle is isovolumic relaxing. The
time period of relaxation is related to diastolic
dysfunction and LAP.
