168 Possible Causes for Increased Jugular Venous Pressure

  • Congestive Heart Failure

    Right heart failure is characterized by low output syndrome with increased jugular venous pressure, increased liver size and hypotension.[doi.org] This includes serial assessment of weight, as well as estimates of jugular venous pressure and the presence of peripheral edema or orthopnea. 187 – 190 (Level of Evidence:[doi.org] B) Despite advances in imaging technology and increasing availability of diagnostic laboratory testing, a careful history and physical examination remain the cornerstones[doi.org]

  • Atrial Fibrillation

    Head and neck Examination of the head and neck may reveal exophthalmos, thyromegaly, elevated jugular venous pressures, or cyanosis.[emedicine.medscape.com] Carotid artery bruits suggest peripheral arterial disease and increase the likelihood of comorbid coronary artery disease.[emedicine.medscape.com]

  • Cor Pulmonale

    […] and other neck and facial veins Increased jugular venous pressure Hepatomegaly Cyanosis Abnormal heart sounds Physical indicators of cor pulmonale on exam: Pulmonary hypertension[symptoma.com] jugular venous pressure) are often obscured by hyperinflation of the chest 6 which is present in a number of COPD patients.[doi.org] Right ventricular hypertrophy Right ventricular failure Increased chest diameter Labored respirations with retractions Distended neck veins Cyanosis On auscultation wheezes[symptoma.com]

  • Cardiomyopathy

    Some people who have cardiomyopathy never have signs or symptoms. Others don't have signs or symptoms in the early stages of the disease. As cardiomyopathy worsens and the heart weakens, signs and symptoms of heart failure usually occur. These signs and symptoms include: Shortness of breath or trouble[…][web.archive.org]

  • Pulmonary Edema

    The sudden development of acute (flash) pulmonary edema may be an indication for coronary angiography and revascularization. However, the prevalence of coronary artery disease in these patients and the outcome after revascularization are not known. We evaluated 46 patients with an initial presentation of flash[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Myocardial Infarction

    Modern management of acute myocardial infarction is built on a clinical evidence base drawn from many studies undertaken over the past three decades. The evolution in clinical practice has substantially reduced mortality and morbidity associated with the condition. Key to this success is the effective integration of[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Acute Myocardial Infarction

    BMJ Case Rep. 2016 Mar 17;2016. pii: bcr2015214038. doi: 10.1136/bcr-2015-214038. Abstract An individual experiencing dyspnoea or syncope at high altitude is commonly diagnosed to have high-altitude pulmonary edema or cerebral edema. Acute myocardial infarction (AMI) is generally not considered in the differential[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • High Output Heart Failure

    Physical findings are increased jugular venous pressure, tachycardia usually with a third heart sound, bilateral bibasilar crackles and a wide pulse pressure.[omicsonline.org] Patients may present with the usual signs of high-output heart failure including tachycardia, elevated pulse pressure, hyperkinetic precordium, and jugular venous distension[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Over time, the demands of an increased workload may lead to cardiac hypertrophy and eventual heart failure.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Chronic Right-Sided Congestive Heart Failure

    The fluid status is checked by jugular venous pressure, which usually gets accentuated by the hepatojugular reflux.[newhealthadvisor.com] If there is an increase in the right ventricular pressure, there will be presence of parasternal heave.[newhealthadvisor.com]

  • Pulmonary Embolism

    Abstract We aimed to assess the relationship between alterations of tissue perfusion parameters at admission (highly predictive of mortality in septic shock) and outcome in patients admitted to the intensive care unit (ICU) for acute pulmonary embolism (PE). We conducted a retrospective study to analyze the[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
