428 Possible Causes for Increased Jugular Venous Pressure, Ruptured Ectopic Pregnancy

  • Congestive Heart Failure

    Right heart failure is characterized by low output syndrome with increased jugular venous pressure, increased liver size and hypotension.[doi.org] Jugular venous pressure is frequently assessed as a marker of fluid status, which can be accentuated by eliciting hepatojugular reflux.[en.wikipedia.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]

  • 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]

  • Cardiomyopathy

    Cardiomyopathy refers to a clinical disease that involves the muscles of the heart. Cardiomyopathy usually causes the heart muscles to grow thicker, and more rigid than the normal myocardium. The progressive scarring of the heart muscle may sometimes replace the physiologic role of the normal myocardium. Patients[…][symptoma.com]

  • Pulmonary Edema

    Pulmonary edema is a clinical term that refers to the abnormal buildup of fluids within the lung tissues that causes physiological disturbances to the patient. Patients usually present with severe left sided heart failure with pulmonary hypertension and alveolar flooding in the lungs. Pulmonary edema from different[…][symptoma.com]

  • Myocardial Infarction

    History The patient’s history is critical in diagnosing myocardial infarction (MI) and sometimes may provide the only clues that lead to the diagnosis in the initial phases of the patient presentation. Patients with typical acute MI usually present with chest pain and may have prodromal symptoms of fatigue, chest[…][emedicine.medscape.com]

  • Acute Myocardial Infarction

    Ventricular septal rupture (VSR) is a rare but fatal complication of acute myocardial infarction (AMI) with an associated mortality that ranges from 41% to 80%. The treatment consists of supplemental oxygenation, afterload reduction, intraaortic balloon pump, and surgical repair. In selected patients, extracorporeal[…][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

    BACKGROUND: Acute pulmonary embolism (APE) can be life-threatening. Early detection is even more difficult for patients under general anesthesia as common symptoms are not available and the pathophysiological course of intra-operative APE is influenced by procedures of surgery and anesthesia, which makes patients[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
