    On physical examination, she presented diminished breath sounds and muffled heart sounds, with a systolic murmur.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Chronic Constrictive Pericarditis

    Signs may include hypotension, elevated jugular venous pressure (JVP) and diminished heart sounds (Beck's triad or acute compression triad described in 1935 with cardiac tamponade[patient.info]

  • Pericardial Effusion

    On physical examination classical signs include neck vein distention with elevated jugular venous pressure at bedside examination, pulsus paradoxus, and diminished heart sounds[eurheartj.oxfordjournals.org] On auscultation, heart sounds were found to be diminished.[casesjournal.biomedcentral.com]

  • Tension Pneumothorax

    You hear diminished breath sounds on the right side. His oxygen saturation is dropping. A bedside x-ray is taken and reveals the following in Figure A.[medbullets.com] Vitals reveal temperature 37 degrees Celsius, heart rate of 121, blood pressure of 100/70, respiratory rate 23, and oxygen saturation of 89% on room air.[medbullets.com]

  • Myxedema

    Hypothyroidism is a common medical problem easily treated when diagnosed but requiring regular follow-up and patient medication compliance. At times, this diagnosis can go untreated resulting in the development of severe consequences such as Myxedema Coma. Of all the clinical symptoms, cardiovascular manifestations[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Exsanguination

    Surgically induced ischemia and reperfusion is frequently accompanied by local and remote organ injury. It was hypothesized that this procedure may produce injurious oxidants such as hydrogen peroxide (H2O2), which, if unscavenged, will generate the highly toxic hydroxyl radical (.OH). Accordingly, it was proposed[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
