62 Possible Causes for Cardiac Tamponade, Narrow Pulse Pressure

  • Myxedema

    Abstract Pericardial effusion is frequently found in patients diagnosed with hypothyroidism, yet it is rarely associated with cardiac tamponade.[] pulse pressure.[] Cardiac tamponade as initial presenting feature of primary hypothyroidism in the ED. Am J Emerg Med. 2014;32(6):683. CrossRef PubMed Google Scholar 16.[]

  • Cardiac Tamponade

    This type of cardiac tamponade is clinically referred to as low pressure tamponade occurring in 20% of all cardiac tamponade cases.[] pulse pressure and pulsus paradoxus may also be observed. 2 The diagnosis can be rapidly confirmed by bedside ultrasound. 3 In traumatic cardiac tamponade, the treatment[] Cardiac tamponade often presents as a cardiogenic obstructive shock with shortness of breath, tachycardia, hypotension with a narrow pulse pressure (but blood pressure may[]

  • Chronic Constrictive Pericarditis

    tamponade I31.8 Other specified diseases of pericardium I31.9 Disease of pericardium, unspecified I32 Pericarditis in diseases classified elsewhere I33 Acute and subacute[] Pulsus paradoxus, a finding in cardiac tamponade, is uncommon [ 2 ] .[] Acutely, this situation can result in cardiac tamponade.[]

  • Aortic Valve Stenosis

    tamponade.[] Signs Examination of the pulse in significant AS reveals a slow-rising, flat character called pulsus parvus et tardus. [ 7 ] Blood pressure will show a narrow pulse pressure[] Clinical examination classically reveals a narrow pulse pressure, a slow-rising peripheral pulse, pulsus parvus et tardus (weak and delayed pulse) in the carotid pulse, a[]

  • Cardiogenic Shock

    Obstructive Shock Cardiac tamponade extracardiac obstructive shock mechanical obstruction to cardiac filling pressures of the right cardiac chambers, the pulmonary artery,[] Narrow pulse pressure. D. Oliguria. 5. Answer: C. Narrow pulse pressure.[] Decreased stroke volume causes the pulse pressure to narrow (as is seen in cardiac tamponade).[]

  • Congestive Heart Failure

    tamponade (pericardial effusion)[] Signs There may be a tachycardia at rest, low systolic blood pressure (BP), a displaced apex (LV dilatation) or RV heave (pulmonary hypertension), a narrow pulse pressure[] tamponade ) pressing against the ventricles, preventing them from accepting a full load of blood; and (3) an overload of blood in the ventricles during the systole phase of[]

  • Restrictive Cardiomyopathy

    […] historically has been the principal diagnostic modality for the evaluation of constrictive pericarditis, restrictive cardiomyopathy, and cardiac tamponade.[] Haemodynamic features delineated in the 1940s and '50s included the narrow pulse pressure in the right ventricle with normal systolic pressure and greatly increased diastolic[] tamponade - constrictive only Management The management of restrictive cardiomyopathy is difficult because the underlying processes usually do not respond to intervention[]

  • Hemothorax

    Tamponade - penetrating wound (usually) - Beck's triad (hypotension, distended neck veins, muffled heart sounds) - pulsus paradoxus - Kussmaul's sign - ECHO - IV fluids -[] pulse pressure Management A hemothorax is managed by removing the source of bleeding and by draining the blood already in the thoracic cavity .[] tamponade in patients following cardiac surgery.[]

  • Chest Trauma

    Delayed cardiac tamponade is a rare phenomenon that appears days or weeks after injury.[] A narrowing pulse pressure will develop as systolic pressure falls with reduced cardiac output but diastolic pressure remains high because of cardiac compression.[] Pulse Pressures • Hypotension • Tracheal Deviation (late if seen at all) 55.[]

  • Hypovolemia

    These include cardiac tamponade (muffled heart tones, distended neck veins), tension pneumothorax (deviated trachea, unilaterally decreased breath sounds), and spinal cord[] If the difference is less than 25 percent of the systolic blood pressure, the pulse pressure is considered to be narrow.[] Trauma-related cardiac tamponade requires surgical decompression and repair.[]
