Video 08-07: High Ejection fraction PSSA

From: Pocket Guide to POCUS: Point-of-Care Tips for Point-of-Care Ultrasound

This video demonstrates a heart with a normal to elevated ejection fraction in the parasternal view. The leaflets of the mitral valve are visible at the beginning of the clip, but the LV chamber still decreases in diameter more than 50%, when 1/3 corresponds to a normal LVEF. Also of interest in this video is the small pericardial effusion, as well as the crescentic right ventricle.
