In brief: 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.

In brief: 4-12 mmHg
Normal pulmonary diastolic pressure is 4-12 mm of mercury.
There are many conditions that may raise this pressure. Low pressure readings may indication volume loss (ie loss of blood or dehydration).

In brief: Around 10
Normal pulmonary artery pressure is about 25 over 9.
We don't diagnose pulmonary hypertension unless the mean pressure is 25 or higher together with a normal left atrial pressure and increased pulmonary vascular resistance.
