Abstract

When starting in the cath lab it is essential that you have an understanding of the findings as you collect them. This requires an understanding of normal intracardiac saturations and pressures (the only way to know when something is abnormal) and the calculations used for flow and resistance. All cardiologists must clearly understand not only the basis of the calculations, but also the limitations intrinsic to them.
