Guidelines for the Echocardiographic Assessment of the Right Heart in Adults: A Report from the American Society of Echocardiography
TLDR
This activity is designed for all cardiovascular physicians and cardiac sonographers with arest and knowledge base in the field of echocardiography and reschers, clinicians, intensivists, and other medical professionals with a spein cardiac ultrasound will find this activity beneficial. Expand
Recommendations for quantitation of the left ventricle by two-dimensional echocardiography. American Society of Echocardiography Committee on Standards, Subcommittee on Quantitation of
TLDR
It is the opinion that current technology justifies the clinical use of the quantitative two-dimensional methods described in this article and the routine reporting of left ventricular ejection fraction, diastolic volume, mass, and wall motion score. Expand
Depressive symptoms, health behaviors, and risk of cardiovascular events in patients with coronary heart disease.
TLDR
In this sample of outpatients with coronary heart disease, the association between depressive symptoms and adverse cardiovascular events was largely explained by behavioral factors, particularly physical inactivity. Expand
A simple method for noninvasive estimation of pulmonary vascular resistance.
TLDR
Whether the ratio of peak tricuspid regurgitant velocity to the right ventricular outflow tract time-velocity integral obtained by Doppler echocardiography (TRV/TVI(RVOT)) provides a clinically reliable method to determine pulmonary vascular resistance (PVR) is tested. Expand
Report of the American Society of Echocardiography Committee on Nomenclature and Standards in Two-dimensional Echocardiography.
TLDR
The Committee recommends that when the transducer is placed in the suprasternal notch that it be referred to as in the subcostal location and in those unusual situations in which the apex impulse is palpated on the right chest, a transducers placed over the right-sided apex impulse will be referredTo the right parasternal location.

Noninvasive estimation of right atrial pressure from the inspiratory collapse of the inferior vena cava.
TLDR
IVC respiratory collapse on echocardiography is easily imaged and can be used to estimate RA pressure, and a caval index greater than or equal to 50% indicates RA pressure less than 10 mm Hg, and caval indexes less than 50% indicate RA pressure greater than and equal to 10 Hg. Expand
Sonospirometry: a new method for noninvasive estimation of mean right atrial pressure based on two-dimensional echographic measurements of the inferior vena cava during measured inspiration.
TLDR
Results show that the segment between 5 and 30 mm distal to the right atrial-inferior vena cava junction was the region most responsive to increasing inspiratory pressure. Expand
Left atrial relaxation and left ventricular systolic function determine left atrial reservoir function.
TLDR
Acute LV regional ischemia increases LA stiffness and impairs LA reservoir function by reducing LV base descent and two (early and late) reservoir phases are determined by LA contraction and relaxation andLV base descent. Expand
Noninvasive assessment of pulmonary vascular resistance by Doppler echocardiography.
TLDR
In patients with TRV/TVIRVOT > 0.275, PVR is likely > 6 WU, and PVRecho2 derived from TRV(2)/TVirVOT provides an improved noninvasive estimate of PVR compared with PV recho. Expand
