Doppler equation
 V=c x (Fs  Ft) /[2 Ft(cos 0)]
 V=1.54 x change freq/angle
 Higher velocity > higher doppler frequency shift assume cos 0=1(beam parallel to flow)

Bernoulli's equation
 4V(2) assumes prox velocity <1.
 When LVOT/ PS
 4[V2(2)  V1(2)]


EF% by volumes
 SV/EDV X 100%
 EDVESV/EDV X 100%

Wall stress
 Pressure(P) x Ventricular Radius(R) / [2 x wall thickness]
 Analogy balloon
 Bigger balloon with more air pressure has thinner wall & increased wall stress

Cardiac Output
SV(ml) x HR(beats/min) / 1000mL/L

dP/dT is Rate of pressure rise over time is a loadindependent measure of LV function.
 dP/dT=32mmHg/ (time from 1to 3 m/s MR CW jet in sec)
 Normal is > 1200
 Abn < 1000


PAP with significant PS
