Main purpose of selecting this study was to become aware of right ventricular infarction and its various complications like arrhythmias and conduction disorders, which not only requires appropriate therapy but also avoidance of inappropriate therapy that might reduce right ventricular filling pressure
and cardiac output and in turn prove to be disastrous.
Noninvasive estimation of left ventricular filling pressure
by E/e' is a powerful predictor of survival after acute myocardial infarction.
An increase in the left ventricular filling pressure
decreases Ea velocity and increases E-wave velocity, thus increasing the E/Ea ratio.
Sharma R, Pellerin D, Gaze DC, Mehta RL, Gregson H, Streather CP, et al (2006) Mitral peak Doppler E-wave to peak mitral annulus velocity ratio is an accurate estimate of left ventricular filling pressure
and predicts mortality in end-stage renal disease.
The large EPSS is the indicator of high left ventricular filling pressure
and poor cardiac output in DCM.
2005) Elevated NT-ProBNP levels in patients with increased left ventricular filling pressure
during exercise despite preserved systolic function.
3 CVP is a value indicating right atrial pressure or right ventricular filling pressure
Major Finding: In patients with diastolic heart failure, spironolactone cut left ventricular filling pressure
by 5%, compared with a 6% rise with placebo.
Cardiovascular drugs, such as nitro-glycerine, reduce both systemic arterial pressure and venous return, thus reducing the right ventricular filling pressure
and indirectly the left ventricular filling pressure
14) Obesity may increase left ventricular dilatation by increasing left ventricular filling pressure
Cyanosis may manifest itself for the first time during pregnancy, due to the rise in right ventricular filling pressure
Depressed arterial baroreflex sensitivity and not reduced heart rate variability identifies patients with chronic heart failure and nonsustained ventricular tachycardia: the effect of high ventricular filling pressure
