474 Possible Causes for Embolism of Arteries of the Extremities, Increased Area of Cardiac Dullness, S3 Gallop

  • Cardiomyopathy

    gallop is common in children but signifies decompensated CHF in adults; S4 is frequently heard Jugular venous pulse revealing a prominent a wave Double carotid arterial pulse[] Other possible physical findings include an S3 gallop and a systolic murmur of mitral regurgitation if the valve annulus is dilated.[] […] apical impulse (less common) Normal first heart sound; second heart sound usually is normally split but is paradoxically split in some patients with severe outflow gradients; S3[]

  • Dilated Cardiomyopathy

    He was tachycardic, with an S3/S4 gallop rhythm. There were moist rales in the lung fields and chest wall retraction. The abdominal exam revealed hepatomegaly.[]

  • 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[…][]

  • Alcoholic Cardiomyopathy

Author information 1 Herz- und Gefäßzentrum Marburg (HGZ) und Philipps Universität Marburg, Feldbergstr. 45, 35043, Marburg, Deutschland. Abstract The individual amount of alcohol consumed acutely or chronically decides on harm or[…][]

  • Ischemic Cardiomyopathy

    It can be caused by embolism, thrombosis of an atherosclerotic artery, or trauma.[] […] of peripheral arterial disease (PAD). [5] Thromboembolism (blood clots) Embolism (foreign bodies in the circulation, e.g. amniotic fluid embolism ) Trauma [ edit ] Traumatic[] […] blood supply to a tissue, organ, or extremity that, if untreated, can lead to tissue death.[]

  • Peripartum Cardiomyopathy

    embolism with hemiplegia, aphasia, and incoordination [26] mesenteric artery occlusion with an acute abdomen secondary to bowel infarction and acute myocardial infarction[] Her lungs were clear to auscultation and her heart rate was regular, with an S3 gallop. Her extremities were nonedematous, and she had no calf tenderness.[] […] or S4 gallop JVD Evaluation Echocardiogram Treatment Nonpharmacologic bed rest Na restriction Pharmacologic digoxin diuretics ACE inhibitors (once fetus has been delivered[]

  • Congestive Heart Failure

    […] criteria: · Paroxysmal nocturnal dyspnea · Neck vein distention · Rales · Radiographic cardiomegaly (increasing heart size on chest radiography) · Acute pulmonary edema · S3[] The major criteria include: Paroxysmal nocturnal dyspnea Distention of neck veins Crepitations Cardiomegaly Acute pulmonary edema S3 gallop rhythm Increased venous pressure[] gallop · Increased central venous pressure ( 16 cm H2O at right atrium) · Hepatojugular reflux · Weight loss 4.5 kg in 5 days in response to treatment Minor criteria: · Bilateral[]

  • Large Ventricular Septal Defect

    Abstract To evaluate the effects of acute afterload reduction, hydralazine, 0.2 mg/kg, was administered at cardiac catheterization to seven infants who had a large ventricular septal defect (VSD). The infants were 2.5 - 11 months old (mean 5.1 months). Before and 5, 15, 25 and 35 minutes after hydralazine, aortic,[…][]

  • Acute Myocardial Infarction

    In this situation, there may be concurrent jugular venous distension peripheral edema and a S3 gallop. Diaphoresis can be common in AMI.[] Class I: No evidence of HF (mortality 6%) Class II: Findings of mild to moderate HF (S3 gallop, rales halfway up lung fields or elevated jugular venous pressure (mortality[]

  • Myocardial Infarction

    Heart sounds are auscultated for S3 or S4 gallops or new heart murmurs. Patient care and other activities should be organized to allow for periods on uninterrupted rest.[]
