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!
Right Ventricular Systolic Pressure
to calculate a RVSP.
Obtain a CWD of the long axis view of the tricuspid
valve. Tricuspid regurgitation must be present
to make this calculation. Tricuspid regurgitation
is present in most normal individuals so this calculation
should be able to be made in almost everyone.
A CWD of the TR jet will yield a peak velocity.
Four times the square of the peak velocity of the
TR jet yields the peak pressure during right
ventricular systole. The RVSP will equal the PASP if
pulmonary stenosis or a RVOT outlet obstruction is absent.
