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
to calculate a LVEDP.
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.
