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[] After induction of general anesthesia for scrotal exploration and possible orchiopexy, the patient developed severe and persistent hypotension.[] These patients often develop frequent ascites and present with clinical signs and symptoms similar to cardiac tamponade (tachycardia, hypotension and dyspnea).[]

  • Hypovolemia

    If the difference is less than 25 percent of the systolic blood pressure, the pulse pressure is considered to be narrow.[] 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[] Non-hypotensive hypovolemia, observed during mild haemorrhage or blood donation leads to reflex readjustment of the cardiac autonomic tone.[]

  • Cardiogenic Shock

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

  • Abruptio Placentae

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

  • Hypovolemic Shock

    If the difference is less than 25 percent of the systolic blood pressure, the pulse pressure is considered to be narrow.[] 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[] However, it is likely that there will be a narrowed pulse pressure. 9.[]

  • 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[] hypotension, and both refractory hypotension and hyperlactatemia.[] ., "cold shock") with a narrow pulse pressure, cool extremities, and mottled skin.[]

  • Hemopericardium

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

  • 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[] If vasodilators, such as nitrates, are used, caution should be exercised since these medications can cause hypotension and other physiological effects that may exacerbate[] 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[]

  • Addison's Disease

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

  • Congestive Heart Failure

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