The Company's newly appointed Chief Executive Officer, Sandeep Yadav was previously COO of Cardiomems, one of the pioneers of the monitoring of pulmonary arterial pressure.
Forced expiratory volume in one second (FEV1), forced vital capacity (FVC), six minutes walking distance and pulmonary arterial pressure were recorded after treatment.
Using invasive measures, Pulmonary Hypertension (PH) is defined as an increase in mean Pulmonary Arterial Pressure (PAP) to > 25 mmHg at rest as measured by Right Heart Catheterisation (RHC).
Comparison between patients who had systolic pulmonary arterial pressure of <35 mmHg or systolic pulmonary arterial pressure of >35 mmHg Parameters sPAP >35 mmHg (n=24) Mean [+ or -] SD Age (year) 59.
The assessment of pulmonary arterial pressure was made by measurement of maximum tricuspid insufficiency (TI), end-diastolic pulmonary insufficiency (PI), the ratio of acceleration time (AT) to ejection time (ET) (AT/ET), right atrial pressure (RAP) and contraction of vena cava inferior during inspiration [10].
For this study we considered pulmonary hypertension as peak systolic pulmonary arterial pressure equal or more than 35 mm Hg estimated by resting transthoracic echocardiography.
As pulmonary arterial pressure drops, the combination of low flow and desaturated blood causes myocardial ischaemia, especially during exertion.
Pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) is defined as the presence of a mean pulmonary arterial pressure (PAP) that exceeds 25 mmHg at rest or 30 mmHg during exercise.
Echocardiography revealed a right to left shunt through patent duct in the first case; suprasystemic pulmonary arterial pressure was estimated by using tricuspid regurgitation of moderate severity in the second case.
Collagen deposition in the pulmonary artery increases with elevated pulmonary arterial pressure (Stenmark et al.
Siobal's excellent review of pulmonary vasodilators found that long-term use of calcium channel blockers (diltiazem and nifedipine) reduced pulmonary arterial pressure and improved survival over a 5-year period, but cautioned that oral calcium channel blockers use was limited by their dose-related systemic vasodilator effects, a potential for hypotension, worsening right-ventricular function, increased intrapulmonary shunt, and hypoxemia.
