4 Errors to Avoid when Measuring Aortic Valve Velocity

Evaluating the aortic valve is a routine part of an echocardiogram. There are many methods we use to determine the structure and function of the valve, including 2D, color Doppler and a combination of pulsed & continuous-wave Doppler. With short examination times being a common challenge, it...

Specific Echo Parameters that Indicate Elevated LAP

Last week, we discussed change in transmitral filling patterns as the severity of diastolic dysfunction progresses. When we evaluate for diastolic dysfunction, our goal is to determine: Grade of diastolic dysfunction Presence or absence of elevated filling pressures Determining LV...

Understanding the Basics: LV Filling Patterns

Let's discuss the transmitral filling patterns as the severity of diastolic dysfunction progresses. The transmitral pressure gradients are reflective upon the E & A-wave velocities. The waveforms are influenced by the ability of the ventricle to relax and the compliance of the LA to generate a...
