Measuring Pulmonary Artery Wedge Pressure

Pulmonary Artery Wedge Pressure (PAWP) values, used to assess cardiac function, are affected by:
Fluid status
Myocardial contractility
Valve and pulmonary circulation integrity
Obtain the measurement by introducing a balloon-tipped pulmonary artery flotation catheter into the
pulmonary artery. When the catheter is in one of the smaller pulmonary arteries, the inflated balloon
occludes the artery allowing the monitor to record changes in the intrathoracic pressures that occur
throughout the respiration cycle. The pulmonary wedge pressure is the left ventricular end diastolic
pressure (preload).
The most accurate PAWP values are obtained at the end of the respiration cycle when the intrathoracic
pressure is fairly constant. You can use the respiration waveform as a reference when assessing the
PAWP waveform, to ensure constant measurement timing relative to the respiratory cycle. The
monitor displays the PAWP value for up to 24 hours or until you admit a new patient.
WARNING
The pressure receptor in the catheter records pressure changes that occur only in front of the
occlusion. Even though the catheter tip is in the pulmonary artery, the receptor records pressure
changes transmitted back through the pulmonary circulation from the left side of the heart.
While performing the wedge procedure, the monitor switches off the pressure alarms for pulmonary
artery pressure (PAP).
Due to a slight measurement delay, you should not use sidestream CO
determining the end expiratory point in the pressure curve.
