Definition:CVP (central venous pressure) is the pressure in the thoracic vena cava near the right atrium (therefore, CVP and right atrial pressure are essentially the same). Central venous pressure is an important concept in clinical cardiology because it is a major determinant of the filling pressure and therefore the preload of the right ventricle.
