Accession:CMO:0001745 term browser browse the term
Definition:A calculated measurement that is used as an index to characterize the contractile ability of the heart. It is believed that maximum dP/dt is a reasonable index of the initial velocity of myocardial contraction.
Synonyms:exact_synonym: LV dP/dt Max;   LVdP/dtmax;   dP/dtmax;   maximal slope of the systolic pressure increment;   peak LV +dP/dt;   rate of maximum positive change in left ventricular blood pressure
