RV Systolic Pressure (TR Jet)

About

Right ventricular systolic pressure can be estimated by adding the right atrial pressure to the derived RV pressure as estimated by the TR velocity2 x 4. In the absence of significant stenosis of the RVOT or the pulmonic valve the RVSP reflects the pulmonary artery systolic pressure.
