This chapter looks at the interpretation of parameters of diastolic function in the critically ill patient. It provides a guide to interpretation and how to avoid misinterpretation of these parameters in the context of severe illness. The assessment of left ventricular relaxation and left ventricular filling pressures are described in detail.
