Table 3 Hemodynamic characteristics at the time of diagnosis of pulmonary hypertension.

From: Right-to-left shunt with hypoxemia in pulmonary hypertension

Hemodynamic parameters mean ± SD (range)
RAP, mmHg 8 ± 4 (2–16)
mPAP, mmHg 46 ± 11 (30–68)
PAWP, mmHg 8 ± 3 (2–14)
Cardiac index, L/min/m2 2.2 ± 0.6 (1–3.4)
SvO2, % 55.8 ± 8.5 (41–72)
PVR, dyn.s.cm-5 469 ± 275 (142–1183)
PVRI, dyn.s.cm-5/m2 819 ± 446 (262–2082)
  1. PAWP = pulmonary arterial wedge pressure; mPAP = mean pulmonary arterial pressure; RAP = right atrial pressure; PVR = pulmonary vascular resistance; PVRI = pulmonary vascular resistance index; SvO2 = venous oxygen saturation.
