The percentage of regurgitant blood flow can be calculated by the following equation: where forward stroke volume refers to the volume calculated from the thermodilution method divided by simultaneous heart rate. Significant heart rate variations will render this calculation erroneous. If both aortic and mitral regurgitation occur in combination, the total amount of regurgitation can be detected only qualitatively. c. Pathologic V waves.
