  • mPAP, mean pulmonary arterial pressure; PAOP, pulmonary arterial occlusion pressure (wedge pressure); CO, cardiac output; F, female; M, male; AA, African-American; C, Caucasian; CTEPH, chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension; IPF, idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis; LAM, lymphangioleiomyomatosis; COPD, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease; NA, data not available (not measured or cannot be estimated) for these patients. 1 mm Hg = 133 Pa.

  • * Calculated PVR based on the measured mPAP, PAOP, and CO.
