About this Calculator

*If a pulmonary vein has not been entered the arterial saturation (SAO2) may be substituted, provided that there is no right to left shunt.

The magnitude of an inra- or extracardiac shunt can be estimated by flow ratio between the pulmonary and systemic circulation (Qp/Qs) using hemodynamic data.

Consideration should be made to close shunts with flow rates > 1.5 if no contraindications exist.
