Central Venous Pressure Monitoring. Normal Sternum: 0–14 cm H2O, Midaxillary line: 8–15 cm H2O. CVP can be measured by connecting the patient's central venous catheter to a special infusion set which is connected to a small diameter water column. If the water column is calibrated properly the height of the column indicates the CVP. In most intensive care units, equipment is available to measure CVP continuously. Normal range for CVP is 3–12 cm water pressure

A 66 y/o Man was admitted to our hospital because of dyspnoea and elevated body temperature (38.1°C).   A month prior, the pt. suffered an ischaemic CVA. Hx also revealed a MI, 7 years ago and a TIA. PE: BP 130/80 mmHg, pulse 102 BPM and regular; the central venous pressure was elevated. RR 36 breaths/min. Examination of the lungs and heart revealed no abnormalities. The right lower extremity was red, warm and swollen and painful on palpation. most likely diagnosis?
