Pressão pulmonar: Formato do fluxo na VSVD
Shape of the right ventricular outflow Doppler envelope and severity of pulmonary hypertension
Angel López-Candales and Kathy Edelman
Conclusions Visual assessment of RVOT spectral signals demonstrates the presence of four dynamic patterns, independent of the aetiology of the pulmonary hypertension, that not only correlate with the severity of pulmonary hypertension, but also are useful in identifying a range of PASP with great accuracy that minimizes subjective interpretation. These simple visual assessments of RVOT Doppler signals can be done routinely when evaluating patients with pulmonary hypertension without the need of additional sophisticated equipment.
