Normal Pulmonary Artery Systolic Pressure
Normal: Yours is normal. (generally up to 35 is normal). ...Read more
Arteries are defined as blood vessels which carry blood away from the heart (to either the body or lungs). Arteries: higher pressure, thicker walls, stretch (pulse) with each heart contraction & deliver blood to the arterioles which control the flow to individual capillaries. Veins are blood vessels which carry blood from capillaries back to the heart (body to right heart; ...Read more
My echo showed normal heart and pulmonary artery pressures normal at 25-30mmoh isn't this too high?
I got my results back for my echocardiogram. It said unable to determine pulmonary artery systolic pressure. What does that mean?
Aorta : 120/80
10-15: Pad will often reflect as a surrogate for left atrial pressure (lap), and therefore should range in the 10-15 range. In pulmonary htn, these values may be elevated above the level of lap, in which case the 2 do not correlate. ...Read more

Pulmonary artery pressure per dr is 27&I am only 28 he says its Within normal limits but high for my age, repeat in a year im scared of having fibrosis?
Anxiety: You have one normal measurement and apparently no reason to expect it to go higher. Don't smoke or use any street drugs, get regular exercise and Mediterranean diet. Follow your Doctor's advice re good health and check ups and stop worrying unless you find something to worry about. ...Read more
Does a ordinary heart echo include checking the pulmonary arterial pressure and does a normal echo rule out pulmonary hypertension?
Different: The pulmonary and systemic circulations are different & therefore have different bps with pulmonary system being a lower pressure system. ...Read more
Congenital defect: Tetralogy of fallot is a congenital defect of the heart in which the there is a hole in the ventricular septum (wall that separate the two ventricles) of the heart, overriding of the septal defect by the aorta and atresia of the pulmonary artery, it causes mixing of arterial blood with venous blood, therefore hypoxemia (low level of oxygen) to the general circulation, pulmonary HTN may occur. ...Read more

Terminology: Pulmonary artery disease is a vague term that may relate to any abnormal process in the pulmonary arterial system, however, pulmonary arterial hypertension is a very specific disorder that is defined by an elevated mean pulmonary arterial pressure, a normal wedge pressure, and an elevated pulmonary vascular resistance. These are measured by doing a right heart catherization. ...Read more
Would my husbands symptoms after a saddle embolism of pulmonary artery have been different if it were treated earlier?
What does this mean: ascending aorta at the level of the pulmonary artery bifurcation measures 2.5 x 2.3cm ap and transverse? Is this too big?
Is it ok if the pulmonic valve and the pulmonary artery were not well visualized in my echocardiogram if I had an abnormal ecg?
What was looking 4?: What was the doc looking for when he ordered the test? Discuss that with him and if appropriate the test can be redone. ...Read more

Pda: If there is a right sided aortic arch, there could be a PDA to the right pa branch, this would require several simultaneous congenital malformations which would have a very low probability. ...Read more
Length: CVP catheter can not go beyond the right atrium and therefore it is less than 50 cm long. In contrast pulmonary artery catheter can go past the pulmonary artery and into the pulmonary capillaries and it is over 100cm long. In addition it has a balloon tip to facilitate the positioning of the catheter into the pulmonary artery via a peripheral vein. ...Read more
What does this mean Other Anomalies Of Pulmonary Artery And Pulmonary Circulation with collateral flow?
Partial description: That sounds like only part of a larger description? Anomalies usually refers to a congenital or birth defect. Collateral flow means blood is reaching its target tissue by alternate routes. Taken all together, my guess is: there is some congenital obstruction or diversion of blood from the right ventricle thru the lungs that, nonetheless, has found a way to get through. ...Read more
Artery vs vein: Arteries take blood away from the heart (right ventricle in this case) and veins return blood to the heart (pulmonary veins drain into the left atrium). ...Read more
What are the names of the valves that separate the ventricles from the aorta and the pulmonary artery?
Valves: Those are the aortic valve and the pulmonary valve. ...Read more
The systolic blood pressure (the larger or "top" number of a reading) measures the pressure of the blood coursing through a vessel at its peak. It is a function of both how dilated the blood vessels are overall, the amount of blood in those vessels, and the force of squeeze generated by the heart. This number is the primary target ...Read more
