What is the normal range for pulmonary artery systolic pressure?

Normal pulmonary artery systolic pressure at rest is 18 to 25 mm Hg, with a mean pulmonary pressure ranging from 12 to 16 mm Hg.

Herein, what is a normal right ventricular systolic pressure?

A normal mean pulmonary artery pressure is 12-16. Mild pulmonary hypertension is generally in the 25-40 range, moderate is in the 41-55 range, and severe is the >55 range. Remember though that the right ventricular systolic pressure estimate on the echocardiogram gives a peak and not a mean pressure.

What is an elevated Rvsp?

RVSP is short for right ventricular systolic pressure. RVSP is a commonly searched term because it is found on almost all echocardiogram reports. It is important as the RVSP is used to estimate the pressure inside the artery that supplies the lung with blood.

What is normal right atrial pressure?

Central Venous Pressure (CVP) (also known as Right Atrial Pressure (RA)) 2-6 mmHg. Pulmonary Artery Pressure (PA) Systolic 20-30 mmHg (PAS) Diastolic 8-12 mmHg (PAD)
