The analysis of high-quality pressure recordings in the cardiac catheterization laboratory requires an understanding of the physical principles of fluid mechanics and the physiology and pathology of the cardiovascular system. In this lesson, we will review the principles of analysis of high-quality hemodynamic pressure recordings. We will focus on respiratory effects and simultaneous pressure recordings from left-sided and right-sided chambers.
