Overview

Echocardiography is one of the most important tests in the evaluation of known or suspected pulmonary hypertension. A well performed echocardiogram provides an accurate estimation of pulmonary pressures and a host of critical prognostic variables including integrative pulmonary arterial hemodynamics, right-sided structural and functional parameters.

Objectives

  • Identify the necessary components of a comprehensive transthoracic echocardiogram in patients with pulmonary hypertension
  • Calculate pulmonary artery pressures including mean pressure based on information obtained from an echocardiogram, understanding the potential pitfalls to accuracy.
  • Recognize the echocardiographic parameters that indicate severity of disease in patients with pulmonary hypertension
  • Describe the echocardiographic patterns in various groups of pulmonary hypertension
