How to calculate a Mean Pulmonary Artery Pressure (PAP).
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 maximum velocity (Vmin) which occurs at start-diastole will represent the pulmonary artery valve gradient at the start of diastole.
