Right Ventricular Function 1: Geometry, Anatomy, and Physiology
The purpose of this Right Ventricle series is to assist the reader in measuring both volumetric and pressure-based metrics of right ventricular performance, as well as quantifying relevant structural characteristics of the right ventricle (RV).
You will learn:
- Right ventricular anatomy, physiology, and pharmacology
- Right ventricular failure
- Right ventricular ionotropy
- The right ventricle in cardiac surgery
