John is a 35-year-old nurse who had rheumatic fever as a child. He noticed a persistent tachycardia and light-headedness. Chest x-rays showed an enlarged left atrium and left ventricle. ECG analysis showed atrial fibrillation and mild pulmonary congestion. Cardiac evaluation resulted in the following information:
Cardiac output (CO)
Blood pressure (BP)
100/58 mm Hg
Left atrial pressure (LAP)
16 mm Hg
Right ventricular pressure (RVP)
