The Swan Ganz catheter is used to know all of the following except:
|A||Oxygen saturation in pulmonary vessels|
|B||Pressure of pulmonary artery|
|C||Collapsing pressure of pulmonary vessels|
|D||Capillary wedge pressure|
Collapsing pressure of pulmonary vessels
Swan Ganz catheter is inserted through CVP cannula. It is balloon tipped catheter and is flow guided. It is used to measure:
a. Pulmonary artery pressure.
b. Pressure of cardiac chambers (RA, RV, LA)
c. Pulmonary capillary wedge pressure.
d. Cardiac output and cardiac index.
e. Blood sample for mixed venous oxygen saturation i.e., sample from pulmonary artery.
f. To measure temperature of pulmonary artery.
