322 Possible Causes for Jugular Venous Distention

  • Cardiogenic Shock

    Head and Neck: Jugular venous distention may be evident due to the increased a cardiac compliance.[] venous distention and crackles in the lungs are usually (but not always) present; peripheral edema also may be present.[] venous distention; hypotension; rapid, deep respirations; pulmonary crackles; venous oxygen saturation (SvO2) less than 60%; cyanosis; urine output less than 20 mL/hour;[]

  • Heart Failure

    Proper evaluation of the patient’s history as well as physical checks for signs of congestion such as jugular venous distention can bring about the underlying cardiac abnormality[] Systemic venous hypertension is manifested by jugular venous distention.[] (ii) Signs of congestion may include hepatomegaly, ascites, increased jugular venous distention or pressure, rales, peripheral edema, or rapid weight gain.[]

  • Chronic Thromboembolic Pulmonary Hypertension

    Physical examination often reveals signs of right heart failure including jugular venous distention, hepatomegaly, ascites, and peripheral edema. 1 Bruits may be appreciated[]

  • Tricuspid Valve Stenosis

  • Myocardial Contusion

    He has jugular venous distention and muffled heart sounds. An electrocardiogram reveals diffused ST elevations and sinus tachycardia.[] , VSD) Signs of right ventricular failure: jugular venous distention, hepatomegaly, peripheral edema (same conditions producing left ventricular failure) Signs of cardiac[] venous distention Imaging Focused assessment with sonography in trauma (FAST) exam indication for all patients with trauma findings cardiac motion abnormalities pericardial[]

  • Pneumothorax

    Jugular venous distention and tracheal deviation are late and unreliable findings of tension pneumothorax [1,2].[]

  • Pericardial Effusion

    There was significant pulsus paradoxus of 20 mm Hg and obvious jugular venous distention. The pulmonary examination revealed bilateral vesicular breath sounds.[] The three classical signs of cardiac tamponade (also called Beck’s triad) are hypotension, jugular venous distention, and muffled heart sounds.[] Hypotension results from decreased cardiac output, jugular-venous distension results from impaired venous return to the heart and, muffled heart sounds are due to pericardial[]

  • Myocarditis

    Physical exam will look like congestive heart failure, with jugular venous distention, pulmonary rales, peripheral edema, pulsatile liver, and perhaps a laterally displaced[]

  • Pulmonary Embolism

    Look for signs of right-side heart failure, such as jugular venous distention and peripheral edema.[]
