Ecg Wave With Cvp Wave Forms
S1 S2

Fig. 15. Central venous pressure wave. The central venous pressure waveform consists of a, c, v waves and x and y descents. The a wave is associated with atrial contraction. The c wave occurs as the tricuspid valve bulges up toward the right atrium during early ventricular systole. The v wave is associated with passive filling of the right atrium with closed valve. The x descent corresponds to the tricuspid valve being pulled down toward the right ventricle during late systole. The y descent corresponds with opening of the tricuspid valve as the right atrium begins to empty. CVP, central venous pressure; ECG, electrocardiogram. S1, heart sound 1; S2, heart sound 2.
