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!

Left Ventricular End Diastolic Pressure
DBP: mmHg
Vmin of AR Jet m/sec

How to calculate a LVEDP.
Step 1: Obtain a PWD/CWD of the long axis view of the aortic valve.  An aortic regurgitant jet is required to perform this calculation.  An AR jet will decay throughout diastole.  The end-diastolic velocity is called Vmin.  At the end of diastole record the diastolic blood pressure.  Vmin represents the gradient across the aortic valve at the end of diastole.  Subtracting this gradient from the diastolic blood pressure will yield the LVEDP.
