56 Possible Causes for Distended Neck Veins, Gallop Rhythm

  • Congestive Heart Failure

    veins that stick out (are distended) Sounds (crackles) from fluid buildup in your lungs, heard through a stethoscope Swelling of the liver or abdomen Uneven or fast heartbeat[nlm.nih.gov] The major criteria include: Paroxysmal nocturnal dyspnea Distention of neck veins Crepitations Cardiomegaly Acute pulmonary edema S3 gallop rhythm Increased venous pressure[symptoma.com] There may be a gallop rhythm due to presence of S3 (see also the separate Heart Auscultation article) or murmurs of mitral or aortic valve disease.[patient.info]

  • Pulmonary Edema

    Oxygen saturation is usually Assess for a gallop rhythm (3rd heart sound) and murmurs suggestive of valve stenosis or regurgitation.[patient.info]

  • Pulmonary Embolism

    The clinical examination may reveal signs of acute right ventricular dysfunction, including tachycardia, a low arterial blood pressure, distended neck veins, an accentuated[doi.org] A gallop rhythm signifies ventricular failure, while peripheral edema is a sign of congestive heart failure.[emedicine.medscape.com] Gallop heart rhythm, a widely split second heart sound, tricuspid regurgitant murmur. Pleural rub. Systemic hypotension and cardiogenic shock.[patient.info]

  • Acute Massive Pulmonary Embolism

    Signs of acute RV dysfunction include distended neck veins, a parasternal heave, an accentuated P2, and a tricuspid regurgitation murmur.[phaonlineuniv.org] With more extensive clot burden, findings include hypotension, hypoxemia, altered mental status, and signs of RV strain (distended neck veins, tricuspid regurgitation murmur[uscjournal.com]

  • Primary Cardiomyopathy

    Abstract Eleven patients with hypertrophic obstructive cardiomyopathy and eight patients with idiopathic congestive cardiomyopathy underwent extensive neuromuscular studies to determine if a skeletal myopathy is associated with uncomplicated primary cardiomyopathy. The clinical examination revealed peripheral[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
