Pulmonary Vascular Resistance - PVR


Formula:

Pulmonary Vascular Resistance: PVR = ((MPAP-PCWP) * 80) / CO


Normals:

50 - 100 dyne s/cm5


About:

PVR = Pulmonary Vascular Resistance (dyn*s/cm5). MPAP = Mean Pulmonary Arterial Pressure (mmHg). PCWP = Pulmonary Capillary Wedge Pressure (mmHg). CO = Cardiac Output (L/min). 80 = Conversion Term.
