Pssst! It's me, the website.

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!

Pulmonary Artery Diastolic Pressure
CVP: mmHg
Vmin of PR Jet m/sec

How to calculate a PADP.
Step 1: Obtain a CWD of the long axis view of the pulmonary valve. A pulmonary regurgitant jet is required to make this calculation.  Once the flow profile of the CWD of the PR jet is obtained, the minimum velocity (Vmin) which occurs at end-diastole will represent the pulmonary artery valve gradient at the end of diastole.  Adding this gradient to the CVP will yield the PAD pressure.
