Join three experts for this technical overview of Pressure-Volume Loop collection and data analysis for cardiovascular research.
Pressure-Volume (PV) loops provide a range of hemodynamic parameters which are otherwise not readily measurable. These include changes in contractility, elastance, power, energetics, and efficiency through the assessment of both load-dependent and load-independent states. PV loops also bring with them a host of technical considerations and challenges when collecting this valuable data.
In this presentation, Cole and Nick introduce the next generation of PV loop technology with the ADV550, a system designed to innovate workflow and finally allow users to position their catheter with immediate blood volume feedback. They are joined by Dr. Tim Hacker to review his PV loop surgical workshop; an immersive, hands-on experience that covers all aspects of data collection – from catheterization techniques through to data review. Together they also announce a scholarship opportunity aimed at improving training opportunities in the PV loop space and growing the community further.
Key Topics Include:
- The value of PV loop data for assessing contractility and ventricular remodeling in research
- Recent advances in PV loop technology
- The importance of proper surgical and technical training when performing PV loop data collection
- Opportunities for professional development in the the PV loop field
