In Echocardiography, Tricuspid annular systolic velocity: a useful measurement in determining right ventricular systolic function regardless of pulmonary artery pressures.

 

Right ventricular function can be assessed with transesophageal echocardiography. However, due to the complex right ventricular anatomy, only a few echocardiographic parameters are reliable and easily obtainable intraoperatively. Tricuspid annular plane systolic excursion is a validated parameter of global right ventricular function.

 

What happens during the Echocardiogram exam?
The patient lies on a table while turned on their left side of the body. The sonographer (technologist who performs the exam) will put a warm water-based gel on the skin surface. The gel helps to transmit the sound waves by excluding air. An instrument called a transducer, which is about the size of a microphone, will be moved over the skin surface by the sonographer.

 

How do I prepare for this test?
No preparation is needed.

 

How long will it take?
The standard echocardiogram takes about forty five minutes.

 

Will it hurt?
No.

 

How will I learn the results?
You may call your doctor to discuss the results.
