# Pulmonary Vascular Resistance (PVR) Calculation

The resistance offered by the vasculature of the lungs is known as the pulmonary vascular resistance (PVR). By entering the Mean pulmonary Arterial Pressure, Capillary Wedge Pressure and cardiac output, PVR due to vasculature of lungs can be calculated .

#### Formula:

Pulmonary Vascular Resistance(dyne*sec/cm^{5}) = ( 80 * (PAP - PCW) / C.O )
**Where,**
**PAP** = Mean Pulm Art Press
**PCW** = Pulm Cap Wedge Press
**C.O** = Cardiac Output
