Pulmonary Vascular Resistance, PVR

Pulmonary Vascular Resistance (PVR) is he resistance to flow that must be overcome to push blood through the circulatory system.

Pulmonary Vascular Resistance((dyne*sec)/cm^-5) = ( 80 * (MPAP – PCWP) / CO )

Mean Pulmonary Artery Pressure (MPAP):
Pulmonary Capillary Wedge Pressure (PCWP):
Cardiac Output (CO): L/Min
Pulmonary Vascular Resistance (PVR): (dyne*sec)/cm^-5
