211 Possible Causes for Narrow Pulse Pressure

  • Cardiac Tamponade

    JVD results from a rise in venous pressure as blood backs up in the veins. Hypotension occurs as cardiac output declines. Watch for a narrow pulse pressure, too.[modernmedicine.com] pulse pressure and pulsus paradoxus may also be observed. 2 The diagnosis can be rapidly confirmed by bedside ultrasound. 3 In traumatic cardiac tamponade, the treatment[westjem.com] pulse pressure, and an exaggerated inspiratory fall in systolic blood pressure (pulsus paradoxus).[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com]

  • Hypovolemia

    If the difference is less than 25 percent of the systolic blood pressure, the pulse pressure is considered to be narrow.[ems1.com] Class IV hemorrhage (loss of 40%) Symptoms include the following: marked tachycardia, decreased systolic BP, narrowed pulse pressure (or immeasurable diastolic pressure),[emedicine.medscape.com] A narrow pulse pressure in a hypovolemic shock patient indicates a decreasing cardiac output and an increasing peripheral vascular resistance.[ems1.com]

  • Myxedema

  • Cardiogenic Shock

    Narrow pulse pressure. D. Oliguria. 5. Answer: C. Narrow pulse pressure.[nurseslabs.com] Decreased stroke volume causes the pulse pressure to narrow (as is seen in cardiac tamponade).[cathlabdigest.com] The patients have cool and clammy extremities, poor capillary refill, tachycardia, narrow pulse pressure, and low urine output.[emedicine.medscape.com]

  • Supravalvular Aortic Stenosis

  • Restrictive Cardiomyopathy

    Haemodynamic features delineated in the 1940s and '50s included the narrow pulse pressure in the right ventricle with normal systolic pressure and greatly increased diastolic[heart.bmj.com]

  • Rheumatic Aortic Valve Obstruction

  • Aortic Stenosis with Bicuspid Valve

    Signs Examination of the pulse in significant AS reveals a slow-rising, flat character called pulsus parvus et tardus. [ 7 ] Blood pressure will show a narrow pulse pressure[patient.info]

  • Abruptio Placentae
