43 Possible Causes for Cannon A-Waves

Show results in: Magyar

  • Third Degree Atrioventricular Block

    Inspection may show turgescent jugular veins and cannon " a" waves caused by the contraction of the right atrium against the closed tricuspid valve, peripheral edema or skin[] Careful examination of the neck veins can often show evidence of cannon ‘a’ waves. A variable intensity S 1 may be heard on auscultation.[] The presence of an increased a-c interval, increasing jugular venous distension, or cannon A waves (right atrium closing against a closed tricuspid valve in 3rd degree block[]

  • Congenital Heart Block

    . • Other clinical clues in the neonate may include: -Intermittent cannon waves in the neck -Variable intensity of the first heart sound -Intermittent gallops and murmurs[]

  • Central Venous Pressure Increased

    Extra large a waves (called cannon waves) in complete heart block and ventricular tachycardia.[] – pulmonary hypertension, TS, PS Cannon a wave – complete heart block, VT with AV dissociation Dominant v wave – TR Absent x descent – AF Exaggerated x descent – pericardial[] waves: Very prominent ‘a’ waves due to atrial contraction against closed tricuspid valve Regular cannon waves: Junctional rhythm, Ventricular tachycardia 1:1 retrograde conduction[]

  • Paroxysmal Nodal Tachycardia

    Compared to other atrial arrhythmias, the rise in atrial pressure was greatest in AVNRT, as might be expected from symptoms typical of this disorder: cannon A waves and a[] […] atrial flutter; irregular cannon A waves VT.[] The typical patient is tachycardic with a pulse of 120 to 240 bpm and frequently cannon A waves are visualized in the neck.[]

  • Jugular Venous Distention

    The "Examination of jugular veins (e.g. distention; a, v or cannon a waves)" bullet is only listed in the cardiovascular [...] SIGN UP / LOGIN to read the article[] Examples include: Pulmonary Hypertension Rheumatic tricuspid stenosis Right atrial mass or thrombus Cannon "a" wave Large positive venous pulse during "a" wave.[] […] pressure) Tricuspid stenosis Right heart failure Pulmonary hypertension Cannon 'a' wave (atria contracting against closed tricuspid valve) Atrial flutter Premature atrial[]

  • Posterior Myocardial Infarction

    . [16] Persistent ST elevation is rare except in the presence of a ventricular aneurysm . [16] See also [ edit ] Sgarbossa's criteria References [ edit ] a b Cannon CP at[] […] inverted in the first 24 hours, as the ST elevation begins to resolve. [16] Long term changes of ECG include persistent Q waves (in 90% of cases) and persistent inverted T waves[]

  • Syncope

    […] of palpitations, the sensation of rapid and regular pulsations in the neck points very strongly toward an AV-nodal re-entrant tachycardia, because the carotid pulse and cannon[] A wave arrive simultaneously in the neck. 5 Postictal confusion and focal neurologic exam findings suggest a neurologic rather than syncopal cause, although there are exceptions[]

  • Bradyarrhythmia

    .  Of the procedure  Twiddler syndrome  Pacemaker syndrome – fatigue neck pulsation palpitation dizziness raised JVP cannon waves CCF 18.  Class I - those for which there[] Cannon waves, which may be seen in complete atrioventricular (AV) dissociation.[] For example, in complete AV block, the atria intermittently contract when the AV valves are closed, producing large a (cannon) waves in the jugular venous pulse.[]

  • Distended Neck Veins

    Cannon a waves occur during systole.[] This causes the atria to contract against the closed AV valves producing what is called "cannon A waves" in the neck veins.[] When the atrial and ventricular contractions coincide a prominent wave is seen. This is called cannon a-wave.[]

  • AV Block Mobitz I

    The presence of an increased a-c interval, increasing jugular venous distension, or cannon A waves (right atrium closing against a closed tricuspid valve in 3rd degree block[] Signs include those of AV dissociation, such as cannon a waves, BP fluctuations, and changes in loudness of the 1st heart sound (S 1 ).[] An inability of the patient to follow instructions, crackles on pulmonary exam and cannon A waves observed within jugular venous pulsations may indicate a clinically severe[]
