19 Possible Causes for Diminished Heart Sounds, Pericardial Knock, Tachypnea

  • Cardiac Tamponade

    The child had tachypnea and mild subcostal retractions.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] , and diminished heart sounds) Cold, clammy extremities Anxiety, restlessness Diagnosis Blood tests EKG, Chest X-ray Cardiac ECHO Treatment Oxygen IV fluids Medications to[cardiachealth.org] knock Tension pneumothorax distinguishing factors decreased or absent breath sounds hyperresonant percussion Treatment Management approach all approaches focus on removal[medbullets.com]

  • Chronic Constrictive Pericarditis

    Tetracyclines Postpericardiotomy syndrome: usually after CABG surgery Clinical features Chest pain, usually precordial or retrosternal Low grade intermittent fever Dyspnea / tachypnea[pathologyoutlines.com] 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] The beginning of this anomalous movement was coincident with the pericardial knock in the phonocardiogram and its peak was coincident with the simultaneously recorded deep[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Constrictive Pericarditis

    A clinical examination revealed that she had discrete tachypnea, nonpulsatile hepatomegaly, jugular stasis and tachycardia.[scielo.br] 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 Knock (Constrictive Pericarditis) The early diastolic sound of pericardial constriction occurs slightly earlier than the average third heart sound.[podbay.fm]

  • 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] We report a rare case of complicated pericardial effusion due to E. meningoseptica in a 2-year-old boy, who was admitted with chief complaints of fever and tachypnea (mentioned[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] See also constrictive pericarditis. pericardial friction rub see pericardial rub. pericardial knock an early diastolic sound caused by loss of pericardial elasticity accompanying[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com]

  • Acute Pericarditis

    Most children presented with chest pain, fever, and tachypnea, but cardiac tamponade was not seen in any children.[link.springer.com] Accordingly, patients present with fatigue, jugular vein distention, peripheral edema, and a characteristic pericardial knock on auscultation, caused by a sudden stop in ventricular[amboss.com] The most common physical examination finding was tachycardia (65 percent) followed by tachypnea (46.7 percent).[cureus.com]

  • Pericarditis

    Tetracyclines Postpericardiotomy syndrome: usually after CABG surgery Clinical features Chest pain, usually precordial or retrosternal Low grade intermittent fever Dyspnea / tachypnea[pathologyoutlines.com] […] dullness, diminished or absent apical impulse, and distant heart sounds.[healthcentral.com] knock. [11] Treatment [ edit ] The definitive treatment for constrictive pericarditis is pericardial stripping, which is a surgical procedure where the entire pericardium[en.wikipedia.org]

  • Suppurative Pericarditis

    The physical examination revealed hypotension (blood pressure, 90/60 mmHg) and tachypnea (26 breaths/min).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] On auscultation the heart sounds I, II were distant and no murmurs were heard.[biomedsearch.com] Sometimes a patient with pericarditis has an early diastolic sound or pericardial knock, which can be confused with a third heart sound (S3).[tele.med.ru]

  • Malignant Pericardial Effusion

    Beck triad of pericardial tamponade: Hypotension, muffled heart sounds, jugular venous distention Pulsus paradoxus Pericardial friction rub Tachycardia Hepatojugular reflux Tachypnea[emedicine.medscape.com] knock (60–200 msec after the second heart sound), which is caused by sudden termination of ventricular inflow by the encasing pericardium.[clevelandclinicmeded.com] Tachycardia and tachypnea are common.[clevelandclinicmeded.com]

  • Pericardial Calcification

    The pleuritic pain causes the patients to breath in a shallow and rapid manner i.e. tachypnea.[brown.edu] 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] Physical examination revealed increased jugular venous pressure (14 cm of water), ascites along with presence of Kussmaul sign and pericardial knock.[jacpjournal.org]
