The pulmonary artery blood flow was determined in 40 dogs by pulsed Doppler echocardiography as a non-invasive means for estimating pulmonary artery pressure. Most of these dogs had become infected with heartworm disease which has been known to often cause pulmonary artery hypertension. From the flow velocity profile, four parameters, i.e., the Doppler tracing pattern, right ventricular ejection acceleration time (AT), and the ratios of AT to heart rate (AT/HR) and right ventricular ejection… CONTINUE READING
