A method for determining the blood pressure in the pulmonal artery



A method for determining the blood pressure in the pulmonal artery



Ada Radiol Stockholm 26(3): 302-306



By taking a series of radiographs of the lungs in various projections and with varying intrabronchial pressure (esp. during Valsalva's expt.), checked by a water manometer one arm of which is connected with the mouth of the subject, the main branches and the stem of the pulmonary artery were found to be compressed at a given pressure for each test-person. This pressure corresponds to the blood pressure in the pulmonary artery of the person in question. In healthy persons, this pressure was 25-30 mm. Hg. In the case of complicated mitral lesions, the pressure was augmented.
