Summary Introduction

To review:

Match the hemodynamic parameter, that is, the pulmonary vascular resistance 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


Vascular resistance is the resistance required by the blood to flow through the circulatory system. There are two types of vascular resistances- total peripheral resistance and pulmonary vascular resistance. The pulmonary vascular resistance can be measured in dynes × sec × cm-5 (where sec represents seconds and cm represents centimeters).


The normal range of pulmonary vascular resistance is 20-120 dynes × sec × cm-5. The upper limit of pulmonary vascular resistance is 250 dynes
