  • Pulmonary Tuberculosis

    Pericardial : initially nonspecific; may be signs of pericardial effusion (pulsus paradoxus, elevated JVP) or constrictive pericarditis.[patient.info]

  • Asthma

    Severe airflow obstruction may be predicted by accessory muscle use, pulsus paradoxus, refusal to recline below 30 , a pulse 120 beats/min, and decreased breath sounds.[doi.org] Extrathoracic respiratory signs should also be systematically looked for, including cyanosis, finger deformation, pulsus paradoxus, and pursed lips breathing.[erj.ersjournals.com] Pulsus paradoxus noted earlier may be absent; this finding suggests respiratory muscle fatigue.[emedicine.medscape.com]
