About Video

This video demonstrates the left ventricular diastolic function. Evaluation of diastolic function is to assess filling pressure in patients with heart failure and reduced LV ejection fraction. Physiology of diastole, ventricular compliance, causes of diastolic dysfunction, mitral inflow, mitral inflow pattern in various stages of diastolic dysfunction, tissue Doppler, method of trace, diagnosis of diastolic dysfunction, role of speckled tracking, contribution of the E and A waves to filling are briefly described in this video. The evaluation of left-ventricular diastolic function is complex, ongoing, and remains poorly performed in pediatric intensive-care patients.
