The pulmonary artery pressure is then measured and displayed using the CardioMEMS proprietary electronic monitoring system.
The pulmonary artery pressure is then monitored and displayed using the company's electronic monitoring system, producing "a real-time pulmonary artery waveform," he explained.
If pulmonary artery pressure and PAWP are used for clinical treatment decisions, the measurements need to be as accurate as possible (Cengiz et al.
Both tadalafil and dexamethasone subjects showed a smaller drop in oxygen saturation over the placebo group, indicating a better uptake of oxygen, and a measure of pulmonary artery pressure was significantly less for both tadalifil and dexamethasone groups over placebo.
A left-to-right shunt is converted into a right-to-left shunt secondary to the elevated pulmonary artery pressures and associated pulmonary vascular disease.
Their average pulmonary artery pressure was 59 mm Hg (range of 37-86 mm Hg), their average right-ventricular ejection fraction was 30%-35% (range of 20%-45%), and their average right atrial pressure was 10 mm Hg (range 7-20 mm Hg).
