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.
