182 Possible Causes for Hypotension, Narrow Pulse Pressure

  • Cardiac Tamponade

    pulse pressure and pulsus paradoxus may also be observed. 2 The diagnosis can be rapidly confirmed by bedside ultrasound. 3 In traumatic cardiac tamponade, the treatment[westjem.com] After induction of general anesthesia for scrotal exploration and possible orchiopexy, the patient developed severe and persistent hypotension.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] These patients often develop frequent ascites and present with clinical signs and symptoms similar to cardiac tamponade (tachycardia, hypotension and dyspnea).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Hypovolemia

    If the difference is less than 25 percent of the systolic blood pressure, the pulse pressure is considered to be narrow.[ems1.com] Although hypovolemia may intuitively seem a likely cause for hypotension in intensive care patients, its role in the pathogenesis of intradialytic hypotension may be overestimated[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Non-hypotensive hypovolemia, observed during mild haemorrhage or blood donation leads to reflex readjustment of the cardiac autonomic tone.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Cardiogenic Shock

    Narrow pulse pressure. D. Oliguria. 5. Answer: C. Narrow pulse pressure.[nurseslabs.com] Persistent ischemia in the noninfarct territory may contribute to ongoing hypotension.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] A 74-year-old woman presenting with sepsis demonstrated AF tachycardia characterised by severe hypotension.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Abruptio Placentae

    pressure.[emsworld.com] A pregnant woman has a greater blood volume thus hypotension may not be as profound as expected particularly if hypertension was present previously.[sharinginhealth.ca] Hypotension BP 1: Inspect skin color, temperature, and capillary refill 2: Count and weigh pads hourly.[quizlet.com]

  • Hypovolemic Shock

    If the difference is less than 25 percent of the systolic blood pressure, the pulse pressure is considered to be narrow.[ems1.com] The shock bowel sign and the CT hypotension complex are frequently associated with hypotension from causes other than trauma-induced hypovolemic shock, such as severe head[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] However, it is likely that there will be a narrowed pulse pressure. 9.[slideshare.net]

  • Septic Shock

  • Hemopericardium

    While on bypass, progressive hemopericardium led to narrow pulse pressure and decreased venous return that limited bypass flow.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Massive bleeding through the chest drains with hypotension required emergency reoperation in the intensive care unit.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The patient collapsed acutely 15 min following stent placement with hypoxemia and hypotension.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Aortic Valve Stenosis

    Clinical examination classically reveals a narrow pulse pressure, a slow-rising peripheral pulse, pulsus parvus et tardus (weak and delayed pulse) in the carotid pulse, a[radiopaedia.org] If vasodilators, such as nitrates, are used, caution should be exercised since these medications can cause hypotension and other physiological effects that may exacerbate[symptoma.com] pulse pressure Electrocardiogram [ edit ] Although aortic stenosis does not lead to any specific findings on the electrocardiogram (ECG), it still often leads to a number[en.wikipedia.org]

  • Addison's Disease

    […] of hypotension in these individuals.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] During admission for evaluation of hypotension, she was also detected to have hyponatremia. Hyponatremia and hypotension failed to improve despite fluid resuscitation.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] She was hyperpigmented, hypotensive and hyponatraemic despite rehydration.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Congestive Heart Failure

    After cardioversion, refractory hypotension and cardiopulmonary arrest occurred. An arterial blood gas analysis showed marked lactic acidosis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] However, the patient's renal function and hyperkalemia worsened, and the blood eosinophil count increased without signs of dehydration or hypotension.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] TLV has side effect of severe hypotension that is consistent with its physiological activity.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
