Cardiac Catheters Diagrams

Fig. 17. Cannon v waves. An incompetent tricuspid valve (tricuspid regurgitation) abolishes the x descent and causes cannon v waves as volume from the right ventricle backflows into the right atrium during ventricular systole. CVP, central venous pressure; ECG, electrocardiogram. S1, heart sound 1; S2, heart sound 2.

Heart Diagram With Oxygen Saturations

Fig. 18. Pulmonary artery catheter. A diagram of a typical pulmonary artery catheter with continuous cardiac output and mean venous oxygen saturation monitoring capabilities. Notice the addition of the thermal coils, thermistors, and optical components to the catheter. CVP, central venous pressure; PA, pulmonary artery; RV, right ventricle; SVO2, venous oxygen saturation.
