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!
Left Atrial Pressure by Mitral Regurgitant Jet
Calcs>Pressure>LAP by MR Jet>1
to calculate a LAP.
1: Obtain a CWD of the long axis view of the mitral
valve. A mitral regurgitant jet is required to
make this calculation. Once the flow profile
of the CWD of the MR jet is obtained, the maximum
velocity (Vmax) will represent the mitral valve gradient.
Subtracting the mitral valve gradient from the systolic
blood pressure will yield the LAP.
