10 Possible Causes for Chest Pain Worse when Lying Down, Elevated PR Interval

  • Pericarditis

    There may also be PR interval depression – and if both of these are present it is pretty much diagnostic for pericarditis Later there may also be T wave inversion – especially[almostadoctor.co.uk] It can be made worse when lying down, coughing, or swallowing and may be relieved by sitting forward. Low-grade fever. Increased heart rate.[webmd.com] The PR interval (short arrow) is depressed because of inflammatory changes involving the atrial wall. B. Acute myocardial infarction.[aafp.org]

  • Acute Pericarditis

    There may also be PR interval depression – and if both of these are present it is pretty much diagnostic for pericarditis Later there may also be T wave inversion – especially[almostadoctor.co.uk] It is usually worse when coughing, eating and lying down. Sitting up or leaning forward will usually help relieve the pain.[your.md] Diffuse PR segment depression can also occur (read differences between Intervals and Segments ).[en.my-ekg.com]

  • Acute Pleuropericarditis

    […] in V1 and aVR) with upright T waves, and a PR interval that deviates opposite of the P wave polarity are found during Stage I ( Figure 3 ). 3, 5 These acute findings were[jucm.com] It can be made worse when lying down, coughing , or swallowing and may be relieved by sitting forward. Low-grade fever. Increased heart rate .[webmd.com] Diffuse PR segment depression can also occur (read differences between Intervals and Segments ).[en.my-ekg.com]

  • Toxic Myocarditis

    The PR interval is depressed. See Table P-2 to see the differences in the ECG in these three conditions. Table P-2.[atsu.edu] The unique presentation of substernal pain that is worse during inspiration or when the patient is lying down and is relieved by leaning forward is helpful in making the diagnosis[atsu.edu] In a patient with pericarditis the ST segment is elevated in all leads. The ST-segment elevation shows upward concavity (so-called "smiling face").[atsu.edu]

  • Suppurative Pericarditis

    […] arthralgia, fever, elevated ESR and CRP, prolonged PR interval What is the Jones criteria of acute rheumatic fever?[quizlet.com] pain. [1] The pain may also be felt in the shoulders, neck, or back. [1] It is typically better sitting up and worse when lying down or breathing deeply. [1] Other symptoms[en.wikipedia.org] The PR interval is depressed. See Table P-2 to see the differences in the ECG in these three conditions. Table P-2.[atsu.edu]

  • Radiation Pericarditis

    The PR interval (short arrow) is depressed because of inflammatory changes involving the atrial wall. B. Acute myocardial infarction.[aafp.org] pain. [1] The pain may also be felt in the shoulders, neck, or back. [1] It is typically better sitting up and worse when lying down or breathing deeply. [1] Other symptoms[en.wikipedia.org] The ST segment (long arrows) is elevated in all leads (universal elevation in contrast to the focal elevation in acute myocardial infarction), with no reciprocal change.[aafp.org]

  • Myocardial Abscess

    The PR interval is depressed. See Table P-2 to see the differences in the ECG in these three conditions. Table P-2.[atsu.edu] The unique presentation of substernal pain that is worse during inspiration or when the patient is lying down and is relieved by leaning forward is helpful in making the diagnosis[atsu.edu] In a patient with pericarditis the ST segment is elevated in all leads. The ST-segment elevation shows upward concavity (so-called "smiling face").[atsu.edu]

  • Aortic Valve Calcification

    Elevated Lp(a) levels were associated with multivariable adjusted hazard ratios for AVS of 1.2 (95% confidence interval [CI]: 0.8 to 1.7) for 22nd to 66th percentile levels[lipoproteinafoundation.org] […] especially when lying down, at night, or with exercise, and swelling of the legs. [1] Thickening of the valve without narrowing is known as aortic sclerosis. [1] Causes include[en.wikipedia.org] Kamstrup PR 1, Tybjærg-Hansen A 2, Nordestgaard BG 3.[lipoproteinafoundation.org]

  • Acute Rheumatic Endocarditis

    […] acute phase reactants (CRP 30 mg/L and / or ESR 30 mm/hr) Prolonged PR interval on ECG (not counted if carditis already a major manifestation) Fever (temperature 38 C, or[health.nsw.gov.au] The unique presentation of substernal pain that is worse during inspiration or when the patient is lying down and is relieved by leaning forward is helpful in making the diagnosis[atsu.edu] The minor criteria include arthralgia (counted only when arthritis is not present), fever, elevated acute phase reactants and an electrocardiogram showing a prolonged PR interval[omicsonline.org]

  • Rheumatic Valvulitis

    The PR interval is depressed. See Table P-2 to see the differences in the ECG in these three conditions. Table P-2.[atsu.edu] The unique presentation of substernal pain that is worse during inspiration or when the patient is lying down and is relieved by leaning forward is helpful in making the diagnosis[atsu.edu] In a patient with pericarditis the ST segment is elevated in all leads.
