An excellent webinar for cardiovascular scientists which covers four interesting applications of applying pressure-volume loop analysis in preclinical research.

During this webinar sponsored by Transonic, Dr. Craig Emter, Dr. Robert Hamlin, Dr. Timothy Hacker, and Dr. Filip Konecny discuss the role of PV loops in HFpEF, Drug-Discovery and Safety Testing, Right Ventricular PV Loops in Pulmonary HTN, and Medical Device Testing using LVADs as an example. The over riding topic of these short lectures was how PV loops work in concert with other techniques permitting complete hemodynamic evaluation.
