236 Possible Causes for Increased Jugular Venous Pressure, P Wave Absent

  • Atrial Fibrillation

    Head and neck Examination of the head and neck may reveal exophthalmos, thyromegaly, elevated jugular venous pressures, or cyanosis.[emedicine.medscape.com] P waves are absent and replaced by irregular electrical activity. The ventricular rate is irregular and chaotic.[web.archive.org] P waves are absent and replaced by irregular electrical activity. The ventricular rate is irregular and chaotic. Figure 1 Electrocardiogram showing atrial fibrillation.[aafp.org]

  • Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis

    As right ventricular hypertrophy ensues, a right ventricular heave may be palpated at the lower left sternal border and increased right atrial pressure may cause elevation[emedicine.medscape.com] […] of the jugular venous pressure. [5] Complications The following are complications that can be seen in patients with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF): Pulmonary hypertension[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] Virtually absent R waves in the right precordial leads (SV1-SV2-SV3 pattern).[lifeinthefastlane.com] jugular venous pressure) are often obscured by hyperinflation of the chest 6 which is present in a number of COPD patients.[doi.org]

  • Acute Cor Pulmonale

    Virtually absent R waves in the right precordial leads (SV1-SV2-SV3 pattern).[lifeinthefastlane.com] Peaked P waves. Low QRS voltages (most obvious in the limb leads). Clockwise rotation (transitional lead V6).[lifeinthefastlane.com] Peaked P waves in the inferior leads 2.5 mm (P pulmonale) with a rightward P-wave axis (inverted in aVL) Clockwise rotation of the heart with a delayed R/S transition point[lifeinthefastlane.com]

  • Atrial Standstill

    Diagnostic criteria of atrial standstill Absent P waves both on surface and intracardiac ECG. Junctional bradycardia.[metealpaslan.com] EKG Absent P waves. JVP Absent A waves.[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com] P waves are absent in all electrocardiogram surface leads, and A waves are absent in the jugular venous pulse and right atrial pressure tracings.[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com]

  • Cardiac Tamponade

    Jugular enlargement – This vein engorges with the increasing jugular venous pressure.[symptoma.com] Kussmaul sign This was described by Adolph Kussmaul as a paradoxical increase in jugular venous distention and pressure during inspiration.[emedicine.medscape.com] Acute tamponade leads to increased jugular venous pressure (JVP) - Beck's triad: jugular venous distension, hypotension and diminished heart sounds - rarely seen.[patient.info]

  • Sinus Arrest

    Occasionally and when the P waves are absent for a relatively long time, escape beats appear, as other groups of myocardial cells undertake the pacemaking process for a brief[symptoma.com] waves: Sinus P waves with basic rhythm; absent during pause PR interval: Normal (0.12 to 0.20 second) with basic rhythm; absent during pause QRS complex: Normal (0.10 second[aibolita.com] In 3rd-degree SA block, conduction is blocked; P waves are absent, giving the appearance of sinus arrest.[msdmanuals.com]

  • 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]

  • Ventricular Fibrillation

    Answers Rhythm: Irregular Rate: Unable to determine P Wave: absent PR interval: absent QRS: absent Interpretation: Ventricular Fibrillation (Fine) Description The morphologic[ekg.academy] Answers Rhythm: Irregular Rate: Unable to determine P Wave: absent PR interval: absent QRS: absent Interpretation: Ventricular Fibrillation (Fine)[ekg.academy] No P wave and no QRS complexes. This rhythm presents with a chaotic waveform which reflects the electrical chaos occurring within the heart.[ekg.academy]

    In fact, drainage of fluid lowered the blood pressure in these patients. 3. Increased jugular venous pressure- which decreases during inspiration. 4.[iame.com] On examining the patient, there may be the classic triad of hypotension, decreased heart sounds and signs of increased jugular venous distension.[symptoma.com] Physical Examination Findings Increased ventricular filling pressures cause jugular venous distention and Kussmaul's sign (paradoxical rise in jugular venous pressure on inspiration[clevelandclinicmeded.com]
