What is Central Venous Pressure?

What is Central Venous Pressure?
  1. The central venous pressure (CVP) is the pressure measured in the central veins close to the heart. It indicates mean right atrial pressure and is frequently used as an estimate of right ventricular preload. The CVP does not measure blood volume directly, although it is often used to estimate this. In reality the CVP value is determined by the pressure of venous blood in the vena cava and by the function of the right heart, and it is therefore influenced not only by intravascular volume and venous return, but also by venous tone and intrathoracic pressure, along with right heart function and myocardial compliance.
