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...

Understanding the Basics: Pathophysiology of Diastole

Over the past weeks, we have gone back to the basics to have a good understanding of what occurs during diastole in order to properly evaluate diastolic function. If you've missed our prior blogs, you can find them here: Understanding Diastole Physiology of Diastole Our goal by the end...
