Pressure Volume Loop Analysis

Many useful and necessary parameters are used to describe the function of a beating heart, including minimum dP/dt, maximum dP/dt, developed pressure and cardiac output. The pressure-volume (PV) loop properly describes the performance of the heart as a pump. Left ventricular pressure-volume relationships expressed as PV loops yield important hemodynamic information in the cardiac catheterization laboratory. 

The PV Loop analysis module permits the display and analysis of left ventricular pressure cycles plotted against cardiac volume cycles within a review session. The PV Loop presentation page consists of a graphical representation that displays the current loops selected. The list view area depicted in the lower left corner of the graph page displays the analysis values for the current PV Loop cycles. The status or control area contains a listing of all analyzed data segments which may be recalled for further review and analysis.
