Objectives: To know how we can assist the cardiac hemodynamics, What we measure: Intra cardiac pressures.

What we calculate: Cardiac output; Qp (pulmonary blood flow); Qs (systemic blood flow); PVR (Pulmonary vascular resistance); SVR (systemic vascular resistance); Ejection Fraction; RVSP (Right ventricle systolic pressure ); PAP (Pulmonary artery pressure; Obtaining accurate hemodynamics requires careful attention to detail; Calculation of cardiac output has many potential sources of error; Limit assumptions as much as possible; Valuable information about disease states can be obtained with basic diagnostic catheterization and good Echo.
