Summary Introduction

To review:

Match the hemodynamic parameter, that is, the pulmonary capillary wedge 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


Pulmonary capillary wedge pressure (PCWP) is also known as pulmonary arterial wedge pressure (PAWP) or pulmonary artery occlusion pressure (PAOP). PCWP is measured by applying a pulmonary catheter in a small pulmonary arterial branch. This determines the left atrial pressure.


PCWP is a measurement of pulmonary circulation. When PCWP reaches more than 20 mm Hg (millimeter of mercury), it indicates acute pulmonary edema...
