1,229 Possible Causes for Abnormal Pulse

  • Acute Bronchitis

    Pneumonia should be considered and ruled out when vital signs are abnormal (pulse greater than 100, respirations greater than 24/minute, or temperature greater than 100.4[journals.lww.com] When recorded, significant vital sign abnormalities were uncommon, with 7% having a temperature of 100 degrees F and 8% having a pulse of 100 beats per minute or greater.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Clinically important vital signs were frequently not recorded; temperature was missing from 34% of charts and pulse from 50% of charts.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Ventricular Fibrillation

    Ventricular fibrillation is an abnormally irregular heart rhythm caused by rapid, ineffective, uncoordinated contraction of the ventricles which produce no peripheral pulse[symptoma.com] Ventricular fibrillation disrupts the synchrony between the heartbeat and the pulse beat.[medicinenet.com] Patients in cardiac arrest have absent or abnormal (gasping) respirations.[emedicine.medscape.com]

  • Atrial Fibrillation

    There is an initiative called "Check Your Pulse" aimed at identifying abnormal heart rates and patients with undiagnosed atrial fibrillation early.[onhealth.com] Atrial fibrillation is a heart condition that causes an irregular and often abnormally fast heart rate.[nhs.uk] Abnormal heartbeats also can be felt by taking a patient's pulse and by a doctor's diagnosis.[medicinenet.com]

  • Cardiac Arrhythmia

    The heart’s natural timekeeper – a small mass of special cells called the sinus node – can malfunction and develop an abnormal electrical impulse rate.[healthguidance.org] An arrhythmia (also called dysrhythmia) is an irregular or abnormal heartbeat . What is my pulse?[my.clevelandclinic.org] In these cases, the pulse rate increases due to adrenalin and a change in physiology is apparent.[womensheart.org]

  • Hip Dislocation

    Your physician will look for lacerations and bruises, weakness, and abnormal pulses, sensation, and reflexes.[iskinstitute.com]

  • Erythema Chronicum Migrans

    Erythema chronicum migrans is also associated with flu-like symptoms including fever, headache, fatigue, headache, sore throat, abnormal pulse, neck stiffness and pain, pain[dermatalk.com]

  • Arteriovenous Fistula

    Arteriovenous fistulas in the face or neck cause swelling and abnormal pulsing. In extreme cases among infants, it can overload the heart.[mountsinai.org]

  • Peritonitis

    Signs of shock – including low blood pressure, abnormal pulse rate and pale skin. Blood tests – to check for which bacteria are responsible. X-rays – of the abdomen.[betterhealth.vic.gov.au]

  • Autoimmune Enteropathy

  • Metaproterenol

    Although there were no electrocardiographic abnormalities, pulse rate was significantly higher with 10 and 15 mg of metaproterenol than with 5 mg.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
