I am preparing for a certification and encounter questions about PAP, PAOP, CVP.
I work in IMCU not ICU and therefore have little contact with above measures.
I know the normal ranges but have difficulty answering for example a specific question.
Your patient with an IWMI also has RV infarction. He soon develops RV failure. Which of the following data would correlate this:
A. PAP 54/28 PAOP 14 CVP14
B. PAP 23/8 PAOP 19 CVP20
C. PAP 28/10 PAOP 10 CVP20
D. PAP 54/18 PAOP 24 CVP5
C is the correct answer and I had chosen B.
Can someone explain this to me, a good rational, what is happening here......?
