This lecture is offered for professionals with a basic understanding of cardiac anatomy. This course offers a basic review of the waveform components for all types of chambers, assessment of the chambers, normal values and abnormal values of the chambers. Attention will be paid to morphologies, gradients, and calculations in this hemodynamics course. The various calculations discussed will focus on Fick cardiac output, Gorlin Valve formula, Shunts, and vascular resistances both systemically and pulmonary. This is a good course for any person working with cardiac patients where pressures will be monitored and interpreted. Author: Toby J. Cullen
