  • Pericardial Effusion

    Considerable amounts of pericardial fluid may muffle heart sounds, increase the area of cardiac dullness, and change the size and shape of the cardiac silhouette.[] […] symptoms of right heart failure Cardiogenic shock , asystole Beck's triad for cardiac tamponade : hypotension , muffled heart sounds , distended neck veins ![] Recall Beck's triad of distended neck veins, distant heart sounds, and HYPOtension.[]

  • Dilated Cardiomyopathy

    Electrocardiogram revealed sinus tachycardia and non-specific ST-T changes in the lateral leads.[]

  • Ischemic Cardiomyopathy

    Abstract BACKGROUND Ischemic cardiomyopathy is characterized by myocyte loss, reactive cellular hypertrophy, and ventricular scarring. However, the relative contribution of these tissue and cellular processes to late failure remains to be determined. METHODS AND RESULTS Ten hearts were obtained from individuals[…][]

  • Primary Cardiomyopathy

    PURPOSE OF REVIEW: Noncompaction of the left ventricle is a descriptive anatomical term and recently recognized primary cardiomyopathy. Cardiac imaging now allows for prompt detection. The specific etiology remains poorly understood, however, and the major genetic determinants are unknown. This review describes[…][]

  • Alcoholic Cardiomyopathy

    There may be distended neck veins, enlarged liver, swelling of the arms and legs, and signs of pleural effusion (fluid around the lungs).[]

    Physical signs like hyperventilation, edema, distended neck veins can be seen in normal pregnancy.[]

  • Suppurative Pericarditis

    The following morning the patient developed severe pain and was found to be cold and clammy with a thready pulse, unrecordable blood pressure and distended neck veins.[] Patients with large pericardial effusions have an area of increased dullness at the base of the heart in addition to generalized enlargement of the area of cardiac dullness[] ST-T changes in association with pericardial effusion Renal failure associated with severe kidney infection Autoimmune disease Medication When You Suffer Pericarditis During[]
