LV mass indexed to BSA ranged from 50-86 g for males and 36-72 g for females. The normal range for ejection fraction was 49-73% for males and 54-73% for females Table 32 Normal values for the fractal dimension (FD) (unitless) of left ventricular trabeculation in the adult stratified by sex and body mass index (BMI) according to reference Full size table Normal values by this approach for global LV and maximal apical fractal dimension are presented in Table 31 The reproducibility of ventricular measurements by a single observer was considered very good (≥0.81) for the AHW, TOD, and right VI and good (0.61-0.80) for the left VI according to the classification by Brennan and Silman (13). Between observers, ventricular measurements appeared also to be consistent
The mean of ventricular index was 11.7 mm ± 1.5 SD. The mean of anterior horn width and thalamo-occipital distance were 1.8 mm ± 0.7 SD and 15 mm ± 2.7 SD, respectively. Ventricular index was gradually increased as the gestational age and birth weight increased, however, there was no obvious relationship between these and 2 other dimensions Reference Values: Left Ventricle MPI (MCOT - LVET) / LVET: Normal range LV MPI = 0.39 ±0.05 Dilated cardiomyopathy = 0.59 ±0.10: Right Ventricle MPI (TCOT - RVET) / RVET: Normal range RV MPI = 0.28 +0.04 Pulsed Doppler RV MPI - Abnormal values >0.40 Tissue Doppler RV MPI - Abnormal values >0.5

Final Thoughts Normal stroke volume is dynamic and is not a single number. Rather, a normal stroke volume will fall within a normal range of 60ml and 120ml
Measurement of the ventricular system should be done in an easy reproducible sonographic plane. A coronal section will be chosen in which the lateral ventricles are observed, in a location slightly posterior to the foramen of Monro. Up to 40 weeks of gestational age, the Levene index should be used for ventricular measurement 2 value of less than 0.05 was considered statistically significant. RESULTS We evaluated 148 patients with a low (<5%) likelihood of CAD and normal tomograms to develop normal limits of the left ventricular functional indices. The population included 27(18.2%) men and 121(81.8%) women with a mean age of 52.9±11.6 (26-78) The normal value for the SVR is 800-1200 dynes/sec/cm2. The normal values for the PVR is generally less than 250 dynes/sec/cm2. High afterload increases myocardial work and decreases stroke volume Background. Pathologic left ventricular (LV) hypertrophy is closely coupled with adverse cardiovascular events. However, normal values of LV mass determined by three-dimensional echocardiography (3DE) have not been established in a large number of healthy subjects over a wide age range The Left Ventricle. Each echocardiogram includes an evaluation of the LV dimensions, wall thicknesses and function. Good measurements are essential and may have implications for therapy. The LV dimensions must be measured when the end-diastolic and end-systolic valves (MV and AoV) are closed in the parasternal long axis (PLAX) view
The 4th common parameter reported is pulsatility index (PI). This corresponds to the magnitude of flow pulse through the LVAD pump. When the left ventricle contracts, the increase in ventricular pressure causes an increase in pump flow during systole. In the Heartmate III LVAD, these flow pulses are measured and averaged over 15 second. amount of work the right ventricle performs with each heartbeat; increases or decreases depending upon changes in volume (SV) or pressure (PA mean); quantifies contractility Right ventricular stroke work index (RVSWI) -- Rang Knowledge about age-specific normal values for left ventricular mass (LVM), end-diastolic volume (EDV), end-systolic volume (ESV), stroke volume (SV) and ejection fraction (EF) by cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (CMR) is of importance to differentiate between health and disease and to assess the severity of disease. The aims of the study were to determine age and gender specific normal. Levene index. Up to 40 weeks of gestational age the Levene-index should be used and after 40 weeks the ventricular index. The Levene index is the absolute distance between the falx and the lateral wall of the anterior horn in the coronal plane at the level of the third ventricle. This is performed for the left and right side

Materials and Methods:In our study 156 preterm infant and 64 term infants were included. Weights and head circumference of all infants were measured before C-US Normal values may differ somewhat dependent on which anatomical plane is used to measure the distances. Normal range is 25-45%, Mild is 20-25%, Moderate is 15-20%, and Severe is <15%.  Cardiology Diagnostic Tests Midwall fractional shortening may also be used to measure diastolic/systolic changes for inter-ventricular septal. Quantifying Left Ventricular Myocardial Mass. Cardiac magnetic resonance imaging acquires myocardial mass noninvasively and with high reproducibility and accuracy. Obtaining left ventricular (LV) myocardial mass is important in evaluating many forms of cardiac disease. It may provide critical prognostic information for individuals with.
RVET-index is less dependent on age, BSA and HR and hypothesized, that it is possible to define a cut-off-point for PAAT/RVET-index to predict PH with good sensitivity and specificity and independent of age, BSA and HR.

It is the average value of strain for the entire ventricle computed from all segments (apical views). Normal values are 18±2%. Perform speckle tracking analysis in as many patients as possible
Ventricular enlargement in normal aging frequently forces the radiological diagnosis of hydrocephalus, but the reliability of Evans' index as a radiological marker of abnormal ventricular enlargement (values > 0.30) during aging is not assessed The myocardial performance index of the right ventricle was 12% vs 54% p ≤ 0.001, and on the left ventricle 27% vs 60% p = 0.001 in the prenatal and postnatal periods respectively The aim of this study was to determine normal values for fetal left ventricular (LV)-myocardial performance index (MPI) in Indian population and to assess its relation to advancing gestation and fetal heart rate (FHR). Materials and method Normal Values for Cardiac Index and Related Measurements Pulmonary Artery Catheter Insertion Some monitoring of critical care patients depends on direct observation and physical examination and is intermittent, with the frequency depending on the patient's illness Sample values. Along with end-diastolic volume, ESV determines the stroke volume, or output of blood by the heart during a single phase of the cardiac cycle. The stroke volume is the difference between the end-diastolic volume and the end-systolic volume. The end-systolic values in the table below are for the left ventricle: [citation needed

For an ejection fraction in the range of 50% to 55%, most of the commonly used tests, if carefully performed, are accurate within a few percentage points (e.g. 55% plus or minus 3%). With respect to the lower limit of normal LVEF, it is important to remember that even at rest, the LV pumps a slightly different amount of blood in every beat AIMS To establish normal ranges, in preterm infants < 33 weeks' gestation, for measurements of the lateral, third, and fourth ventricles and to assess intra-observer and inter-observer reliability.

The normal range of RVEF varies between 40% and 76% depending on the methodology used. MRI is the most accurate method for measuring RVEF. According to Lorenz and colleagues, 8 the normal value of RVEF is 61±7%, ranging from 47% to 76%. RV images can be acquired in the short-axis or axial direction If we take the example of left ventricular (LV) dimensions: using the above methodology, it is expected that 4.6% of all normal patients will have values that are either above the upper reference limit or below the lower reference limit Low values in any TAPSE results may indicate the lower cardiac index leading to the lowest rates of survival and high morbidity. But as we know that TAPSE is only a measurement of the one dimension of the right ventricle (RV) so it does notprovide the complete report of the overall functioning of the specified organ Fractional shortening (FS) is calculated by measuring the change (% reduction) in left ventricular diameter during systole. It is considered a poor measure of systolic function; it is only reliable if the left ventricle has normal geometry and no significant wall motion abnormalities. Fractional shortening can be measured in M-mode and 2D Baseline echocardiographic and RHC characteristics are shown in Table 2.All patients exhibited normal LV size and normal LV ejection fraction. The RV was dilated and had an impaired function measured by RV fractional area change and free wall strain compared to reference values .The left atrium was within normal range whereas the right atrium was enlarged 
While stroke volume normal values are between 60 and 120 mL, SVI normal range is between 33 and 47 mL/m 2 /beat. The average body surface areas are: adult men: 1.9 m 2; adult women: 1.6 m 2.

Cardiac output is defined as the volume of blood ejected by the heart per unit time. It is usually presented as [stroke volume × heart rate], in L/min. Its main determinants are heart rate and stroke volume. Stroke volume, in turn, is determined by preload afterload and contractility, each of which have their own determinants, and each of which influence one another Introduction: Myocardial performance index (MPI) is an emerging non-invasive parameter for in utero monitoring of fetal well-being. Purpose: The aim of this study was to determine normal values for fetal left ventricle (LV) modified MPI (Mod-MPI) in Indian population and to assess its relation to advancing gestation and fetal heart rate (FHR)
Afterload: Afterload describes the resistance that the heart has to overcome, during every beat, to send blood into the aorta.These resistive forces include vasoactivity and blood viscosity. Cardiac Index (CI): The amount of blood pumped by the heart, per minute, per meter square of body surface area. Cardiac Output (CO): The volume of blood pumped by the heart in one minute Cardiac output is a hemodynamic measure of heart function and reflects the volume of blood pumped by the left ventricle during one minute. Normal values are between 4 and 8 L/min. From CO the cardiac index can be derived based on body surface area. The formula used is: SVR measured in dynes-sec/cm 5 = 80 x (MAP in mmHg - CVP in mmHg) / CO in. Left ventricular hypertrophy has several causes — one is an increase in the size of heart muscle cells and the other is abnormal tissue around the heart muscle cells. Your heart muscle cells may get larger in response to some factor that causes the left ventricle to work harder, such as high blood pressure or a heart condition Define values for normal right ventricular free wall strain [ Time Frame: Through study completion, an estimate of 1 year ] The data collected will be used to define normal values for right ventricular free wall strai
Myocardial performance index (MPI) or Tei index (12), a recently proposed Doppler-derived time interval index, combines both systolic and diastolic time intervals to generate a combined index of global ventricular function, that is independent of geometric assumptions. This study was designed to define normal values of RV MPI in healthy neonates Patient should be intubated, given IV fluids and drugs, etc. Avoid chest compressions unless absolutely necessary - evaluate other causes of pump failure or lack of perfusion (e.g. pump thrombus) first. Compressions can potentially damage LVAD, disrupt its connection to the heart (risk of exsanguination), etc The left ventricular ejection time index (ETI) remained constant and reproducible over the range of heart rate from 50 to 150 and yielded more consistent values in this range of heart rate than did previously derived equations. A slight but significantly higher value of the ETI was present in the adult females when compared to the adult males.
Calculate left ventricular mass, LV mass indexed to height, and reference values (z-score, 95%iles) for pediatric ech RIGHT VENTRICULAR MYOCARDIAL PERFORMANCE INDEX. The myocardial performance index was 0.24 (0.18) (range 0.03-0.87). Twenty seven patients (67.5%) had values below normal range, and six patients (15%) had values above the normal range 2.4.3. BMA Series. Based on two published linear regression models [3, 9], it can be inferred that normal wall motion grossly corresponds to an LVEF of 60%, mild hypokinesis to 50%, moderate hypokinesis to 40%, severe hypokinesis to 30%, and akinesis to 20% LVEF (Figure 3).Using this approximation, a simplified WMSI (sWMSI) was created such that readers would be asked to evaluate each image in. Left Atrial Volume Index (LAVI) has been found to correlate with mortality from cardiovascular disease and may be measured at the end-ventricular systole, when the Left Atrial is at its maxim size. Gender differences are then accounted for by indexing the volume to body surface area (BSA) via the Mosteller equation The goal of this study was to define normal values of right ventricular (RV) MPI in neonates in the first 48 to 72 hours of life. Fifty-one quiet of asleep healthy and term neonates underwent complete M-mode, two-dimensional color-Doppler echocardiographic examination and RV MPI was calculated in them
The prevalence of overweight and obesity is increasing. In 2016, 39% of adults worldwide suffered from overweight and 13% from obesity .Overweight is defined by WHO as a body mass index (BMI) value ≥ 25 kg/m 2 and obesity as a BMI value ≥ 30 kg/m 2.Obesity is associated with conditions that increase cardiovascular morbidity and mortality [e.g., lipid metabolic disturbances, type 2. The Doppler method of measuring indices of left ventricular filling has been shown to be of great value in assessing diastolic function. 28 However, when volume overload is present, as it is in obesity, normal values may result, as the increase in left atrial pressure caused by intravascular volume can mask the alterations observed in the early. CVP is also known to be much more associated with worsening of renal function than a low cardiac index, especially when above 8 mmHg. Normal value of mean systemic filling pressure (MSFP) was indeed reported around 7-10 mmHg in animals
As technology advances and we are encouraged to implement additional measurements into our routine scanning exams, it's good to take a step back and refresh on proper techniques! Our goal for this blog is to have a better understanding of proper technique for measuring left ventricle (LV) volumes! In the ASE 2015 Chamber Quantification Guidelines, the [ Right ventricular outflow tract acceleration time is the time from the beginning of the right ventricular ejection until the maximum of the systolic velocity . This acceleration time is about 140 ms in normal people, and it shortens in patients with pulmonary hypertension (about 80 ms)
RESULTS: The median postoperative ventricular volume decrease was 25 mL (P < .001). The proportional decrease in ventricular volume was greater than that in the Evans index (P < .001).The postoperative decrease in ventricular volume was associated with a postoperative increase in the idiopathic normal pressure hydrocephalus scale score (P = .004).Shunt responders (75%) demonstrated a greater.
