161 Possible Causes for Edema, Increased Jugular Venous Pressure

  • Congestive Heart Failure

    Right heart failure is characterized by low output syndrome with increased jugular venous pressure, increased liver size and hypotension.[doi.org] Physical examination revealed S4, bilateral pretibial edema, and moderate amount of ascites.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] This includes serial assessment of weight, as well as estimates of jugular venous pressure and the presence of peripheral edema or orthopnea. 187 – 190 (Level of Evidence:[doi.org]

  • Cor Pulmonale

    […] and other neck and facial veins Increased jugular venous pressure Hepatomegaly Cyanosis Abnormal heart sounds Physical indicators of cor pulmonale on exam: Pulmonary hypertension[symptoma.com] Findings include peripheral edema, neck vein distention, hepatomegaly, and a parasternal lift. Diagnosis is clinical and by echocardiography.[merckmanuals.com] jugular venous pressure) are often obscured by hyperinflation of the chest 6 which is present in a number of COPD patients.[doi.org]

  • Atrial Fibrillation

    Head and neck Examination of the head and neck may reveal exophthalmos, thyromegaly, elevated jugular venous pressures, or cyanosis.[emedicine.medscape.com] There is mild bibasilar crackles on pulmonary auscultation and an absence of peripheral edema. An electrocardiagram is obtained.[medbullets.com] […] of Evidence: C) For patients with AF of less than 48-h duration associated with hemodynamic instability (angina pectoris, myocardial infarction (MI), shock, or pulmonary edema[doi.org]

  • High Output Heart Failure

    Physical findings are increased jugular venous pressure, tachycardia usually with a third heart sound, bilateral bibasilar crackles and a wide pulse pressure.[omicsonline.org] Abstract Detailed hemodynamic, metabolic and blood volume studies were performed in a patient with hydatidiform mole who developed pulmonary edema associated with a high cardiac[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Patients may present with the usual signs of high-output heart failure including tachycardia, elevated pulse pressure, hyperkinetic precordium, and jugular venous distension[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Cardiomyopathy

    DIAGNOSIS: The chest x-ray revealed pulmonary edema.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] CASE PRESENTATION: A 55-year-old woman presented with frank pulmonary edema and received a diagnosis of noncompaction cardiomyopathy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Electrocardiography showed ST segment elevation, serum troponin levels were elevated, and chest x-ray showed acute pulmonary edema.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Chronic Right-Sided Congestive Heart Failure

    The fluid status is checked by jugular venous pressure, which usually gets accentuated by the hepatojugular reflux.[newhealthadvisor.com] A heart attack may cause pulmonary edema.[healthcommunities.com] Right sided Heart Failure Right sided heart failure Right sided heart failure Jugular venous distention Right Sided heart failure Edema (e.g. pedal scrotum, sacrum,) Right[quizlet.com]

  • Pulmonary Edema

    Pulmonary edema from different causes can either present acutely or chronically.[symptoma.com] edema [ edit ] Flash pulmonary edema ( FPE ), is rapid onset pulmonary edema.[en.wikipedia.org] Show full item record Title: Pulmonary edema of scuba divers Author: Hampson, NB ; Dunford, RG Abstract: A syndrome of acute pulmonary edema has been previously reported among[archive.rubicon-foundation.org]

  • Recurrent Pulmonary Embolism

    CLINICAL PRESENTATION: A 30-year-old male, who was diagnosed as having nephrotic syndrome at 12, presented with general edema, ascites and hypoalbuminemia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] calf (measured 10 cm below tibial tuberosity) 1 High 2 Unlikely 0–1 Likely 1 Swollen unilateral superficial veins (nonvaricose, in symptomatic leg) 1 Unilateral pitting edema[onlinelibrary.wiley.com] […] especially during exercise Feeling tired Feeling weak Feeling pain or pounding in the chest (the pounding is called palpitations) Swelling of the legs due to fluid retention ( edema[my.clevelandclinic.org]

  • Pericardial Effusion

    In fact, drainage of fluid lowered the blood pressure in these patients. 3. Increased jugular venous pressure- which decreases during inspiration. 4.[iame.com] Fluid retention may be present as edema, weight gain, or third place fluid collection. Pericardial effusion is rarely seen with docetaxel treatment.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] CASE PRESENTATION: A 73-year-old Asian man who was a former tobacco smoker presented with progressive exertional dyspnea, systemic edema, and pericardial effusion.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Restrictive Cardiomyopathy

    Physical examination is notable for elevated jugular venous pressure, often with Kussmaul's sign (paradoxical increase in jugular venous pressure with inspiration).[clinicaladvisor.com] A 75-year-old man was admitted for evaluation of marked edema and jaundice. Serum total bilirubin was elevated above 20 mg/dl.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] pressures Jugular venous pressure may be increased Left ventricular impulse is usually normal and palpable Third heart sound may be audible due to rapid ventricular filling[pathologyoutlines.com]
