What is CVP?
central venous pressure; measures right ventricular function
What is a normal CVP?
What is PAP?
pulmonary artery pressure; reveals right ventricular function and pulmonary circulation pressures
What is a normal PAP?
systolic 16-30 mmHg and diastolic 4-12 mmHg
What is SVR?
systemic vascular resistance; measures left ventricular afterload
What is a normal SVR?
What is SvO2?
oxygen saturation of blood after it leaves the tissues
What is a normal SvO2?
What is SaO2?
oxygen saturation of blood after it leaves the lungs
What is a normal SaO2?
During inflation, what does a IABP do?
increase coronary perfusion
During deflation, what does a IABP do?
decreases afterload, cardiac work, and myocardial oxygen consumption; increases cardiac output
During systole, is the IABP inflated or deflated?
DEFLATED or else it will block blood from leaving the heart!
