38 Possible Causes for Diminished Heart Sounds, Narrow Pulse Pressure

  • Myocardial Infarction

    Heart On palpation, lateral displacement of the apical impulse, dyskinesis, a palpable S 4 gallop, and a soft S 1 sound may be found.[emedicine.medscape.com] These signs indicate diminished contractility of the compromised left ventricle.[emedicine.medscape.com]

  • Acute Myocardial Infarction

    Heart On palpation, lateral displacement of the apical impulse, dyskinesis, a palpable S 4 gallop, and a soft S 1 sound may be found.[emedicine.medscape.com] These signs indicate diminished contractility of the compromised left ventricle.[emedicine.medscape.com]

  • Hypovolemia

    If the difference is less than 25 percent of the systolic blood pressure, the pulse pressure is considered to be narrow.[ems1.com] Class IV hemorrhage (loss of 40%) Symptoms include the following: marked tachycardia, decreased systolic BP, narrowed pulse pressure (or immeasurable diastolic pressure),[emedicine.medscape.com] A narrow pulse pressure in a hypovolemic shock patient indicates a decreasing cardiac output and an increasing peripheral vascular resistance.[ems1.com]
