Directions: On the line next to the hemodynamic parameters in Column A, match the normal range from Column B. Items in Column B may be used once, more than once, or not at all.

Hemodynamic Parameters Normal Range

a. 4-8 L/min

b. 800-1500 dynes x sec X

c. 60-130 mL

d. 2-8 mm Hg

e. 20-120 dynes x sec x cm

f. 9-18 mm Hg

g. 30-65 mL/beat/m2

h. 80 mm Hg

i. 2.5-4.2 L/min/m2

j. 4-12 mm Hg

k. 40-60 g m/m2

l. 7-12 g m/m2

Summary Introduction

To review:

Match the hemodynamic parameter, that is, the mean pulmonary artery pressure with the most closely related normal range from the options given below.

a) 4-8 L/min

b) 800-1500 dynes × sec × cm-5

c) 60-130 mL

d) 2-8 mm Hg

e) 20-120 dynes × sec × cm-5

f) 9-18 mm Hg

g) 30-65 mL/beat/m2

h) 80 mm Hg

i) 2.5-4.2 L/min/m2

j) 4-12 mm Hg

k) 40-60 g m/m2

l) 7-12 g m/m2


Hemodynamic status of a person is determined on the bedside itself. It is checked to determine the circulation of blood flow inside the body. It is measured with a pulmonary artery catheter. Hemodynamic status includes right atrial pressure (RAP), central venous pressure (CVP), mean pulmonary artery pressure, cardiac output, and pulmonary capillary wedge pressure (PCWP).


Pulmonary hypertension is a condition in which the mean pulmonary arterial pressure increases. The normal range of mean pulmonary artery pressure is 9-18 mm Hg (millimeter of mercury). When the range reaches above 25 mm Hg, it is known as pulmonary hypertension. This arises as a complication of the pulmonary or cardiac disease.


Therefore, it can be concluded that the mean pulmonary artery pressure can be correctly matched with option (f).
