Figure 3: The right heart is enlarged on point-of-care cardiac ultrasound: (a) Apical 4-chamber view shows the ventricular septum (arrow) is deviated to the left ventricle. The right atrial is enlarged. (b) A subsequently comprehensive transthoracic echocardiogram reveals moderate tricuspid regurgitation. (c) Continuous-wave Doppler of the tricuspid valve demonstrates elevated regurgitant velocity consistent with increased pulmonary artery systolic pressure (with a pulmonary systolic pressure 74 mmHg). (d) Dilated inferior vena cava (arrow) (with the respiratory collapse rate <50%), suggesting increased right atrial pressure[17]
