Pulmonary Artery mean pressure assessment

Echocardiography Textbook



For the assessment of pulmonary artery mean pressure, the next formula is used:


Pmean = 79 - AT x 45


Pmean - Mean PA pressure. AT - RVOT Flow Acceleration Time.


Acceleration Time is The time from the opening of the valve to the peak flow.

Measurement of the RVOT Flow Acceleration Time AT conducts in PW mode of spectral Doppler.
