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

Summary Introduction

To review:

Match the hemodynamic parameter, that is, the right atrial 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


Right atrial pressure is the pressure of blood in the right atrium of the heart. It amounts for the blood returning back to the heart and its ability to pump back the blood to the whole body. It is almost the same as the central venous pressure (CVP).


The normal value of the right atrial pressure (RAP) lies between 2-8 mmHg (millimeter of mercury). Increased right atrial pressure is an indication of right heart failure...
