English term or phrase:peak instantaneous early velocity
A parameter of an echocardiography examination:
"4.2 Diameter of the left ventricular outflow tract measured on three parasternal long-axis frames frozen in systole. Diameters will be measured from the trailing edge of the left septal echo to the leading edge of the anterior mitral leaflet echo. The maximum dimension will be taken. If there is reverberation artifact from calcium, the leading edge to leading edge convention will be used; if this artifact is excessive, the measurement will not be made. The best measurement (usually at the preoperative examination) will be assumed to remain constant throughout the study.
4.3 From the subaortic waveform (for prostheses in mitral or aortic positions): peak velocity (v1), mean pressure drop (p1), velocity integral (VTI1).
4.4 From the transaortic waveform (prostheses in the aortic position only): peak velocity (v2), mean pressure drop (p2), velocity integral (VTI2).
4.5 From the mitral waveform (prostheses in the mitral position only): Pressure half-time (PHT), mean pressure drop, peak instantaneous early velocity (vm), diastolic velocity integral (DVI)."
