24 Possible Causes for Hypervolemia, Narrow Pulse Pressure

  • Hypovolemia

    If the difference is less than 25 percent of the systolic blood pressure, the pulse pressure is considered to be narrow.[] Nursing Care of the Affected Patient; A Guide for Nurses Hypovolemia & Hypervolemia A Quick Introduction Hypovolemia and Hypervolemia, also known as fluid volume deficit and[] Class IV hemorrhage (loss of 40%) Symptoms include the following: marked tachycardia, decreased systolic BP, narrowed pulse pressure (or immeasurable diastolic pressure),[]

  • Anemia

    Fluid overload [ edit ] Fluid overload ( hypervolemia ) causes decreased hemoglobin concentration and apparent anemia: General causes of hypervolemia include excessive sodium[] [14] The causes of anemia may be classified as impaired red blood cell (RBC) production, increased RBC destruction ( hemolytic anemias ), blood loss and fluid overload ( hypervolemia[]

  • Septic Shock

    […] than 1 ml/kg/hr is oliguria) narrowing pulse pressure (cold shock) Disability: mental status changes occur as shock progresses restlessness agitation anxiousness decreased[] In comparison with hydrocortisone, dexamethasone causes no changes in sodium reabsorption and does not interfere in the water balance, thus avoiding hypervolemia and sodium[] ., "cold shock") with a narrow pulse pressure, cool extremities, and mottled skin.[]

  • Distended Neck Veins

    Narrowing pulse pressure is also a very important clinical finding along with increased CVP which goes along with distended jugular veins and hypotension. reply[] (HYPERvolemia) urine specific gravity, Na, hematocrit Signs and Symptoms of HYPERvolemia distended neck veins/peripheral veins (vessels are full), peripheral edema (3rd spacing-vessels[] In cardiac tamponade a narrow pulse pressure is regularly observed.[]

  • Postpartum Hemorrhage

    When blood loss approaches 20% of volume, symptoms develop: tachycardia, tachypnea, narrowed pulse pressure and delayed capillary refill.[] […] accreta, percreta, and increta Decrease in the baseline hematocrit greater than 10% May not show typical signs of tachycardia and hypotension because of pregnancy-related hypervolemia[] Also, vasoconstriction may maintain blood pressure in the normal range, making estimation of blood loss more difficult.[]

  • Jugular Venous Distention

    Jugular venous distension, narrowed pulse pressure, and unilaterally decreased or absent breath sounds often indicate a tension pneumothorax.[] Causes may include cardiac tamponade, hypervolemia, superior vena cava obstruction, or chronic obstructive pericarditis.[] Hypervolemia this term refers to increased blood volume or too much fluid, which can lead to heart failure.[]

  • Hypertensive Crisis

    pulse pressure, nausea, and vomiting.[] Postoperative hypertension is best managed by correction of precipitating factors (pain, hypothermia, hypervolemia, hypoxia and hypercarbia) 17 .[] […] signs include severe headache, vertigo, diplopia, tinnitus, photophobia, nosebleed, twitching of muscles, tachycardia or other cardiac arrhythmia, distended neck veins, narrowed[]

  • Pericardial Effusion

    pulse pressure and mild hypotension 7.[] Indeed, increasing the volume may help only in patients with hypovolemia, since in patients with normovolemia and hypervolemia, volume infusion may increase intracardiac pressures[] The pulse pressure may be so narrow during inspiration that the observer will be unable to detect individual heart beats ( Fig. 5 ).[]

  • High Output Heart Failure

    Signs There may be a tachycardia at rest, low systolic blood pressure (BP), a displaced apex (LV dilatation) or RV heave (pulmonary hypertension), a narrow pulse pressure[] […] suggest that patients with hydatidiform mole and pulmonary edema need correction of the hypervolemia as well as removal of the molar tissue.[] Several factors including hyperthyroidism, hypervolemia, and the molar state probably contributed to the left ventricular failure in this patient. results of these studies[]

  • Cardiac Asthma

    Signs There may be a tachycardia at rest, low systolic blood pressure (BP), a displaced apex (LV dilatation) or RV heave (pulmonary hypertension), a narrow pulse pressure[] Fluid retention (hypervolemia, hyperhydration). Heavy meals. Circulatory disturbance during sleep.[]
