1,594 Possible Causes for Narrow Pulse Pressure

  • Hypovolemia

    If the difference is less than 25 percent of the systolic blood pressure, the pulse pressure is considered to be narrow.[ems1.com] […] maintained * Increased diastolic pressure * Narrow pulse pressure * Sweating from sympathetic stimulation * Mildly anxious/Restless Stage III Hemorrhage Involves loss of[sphynxcatvp.nocturna.org] 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]

  • Takayasu Arteritis

    Difficulty in concentrating Different blood pressure in two arms Low or absent pulse rate in wrists as the disorder makes it difficult to detect normal pulse due to narrowing[hxbenefit.com] […] or absent pulse in the arms, neck or legs A Differential in blood pressure between the right and left limbs Angina (chest pain), especially upon exertion Shortness of breath[vascular.surgery.ucsf.edu] It is also called aortic arch syndrome, Takayasu’s aortitis and pulseless disease, due to the inability to find a pulse in the extremities due to blood vessel narrowing.[ucdmc.ucdavis.edu]

  • Aortic Valve Stenosis

    Symptoms typically present on exertion , unless AS is severe Dyspnea Angina pectoris Dizziness and syncope Small blood pressure amplitude , decreased pulse pressure Cardiac[amboss.com] To propel blood through the narrowed aortic valve, the left ventricle must pump under very high pressures.[merckmanuals.com] There may be a faint pulse or changes in the quality of the pulse in the neck. Blood pressure may be low.[medlineplus.gov]

  • 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]

  • Myxedema

    pulse pressure.[emedicine.medscape.com] She has non-palpable radial pulses and weak femoral pulses. The referring physician's transfer diagnosis is septic shock.[ems1.com] […] the effect of alpha-adrenergic receptors, increased catecholamines, and increased systemic vascular resistance, causing some patients to have diastolic hypertension and a narrowed[emedicine.medscape.com]

  • 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] Examination of the jugular venous pulse is not completely superseded by recording the atrial pressure waveforms at cardiac catheterisation.[heart.bmj.com] Paradoxical pulse Paradoxical pulse is not often mentioned as a distinguishing feature between constrictive pericarditis and restrictive cardiomyopathy.[heart.bmj.com]

  • 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] Detection of pulsus paradoxus associated with large pericardial effusions in pediatric patients by analysis of the pulse-oximetry waveform .[mdedge.com]

  • Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy

    High blood pressure. The pulse in your arms and neck will also be checked. The provider may feel an abnormal heartbeat in the chest.[mountsinai.org] When the outflow tract is obstructed, the carotid pulse has a brisk upstroke, bifid peak, and rapid downstroke.[merckmanuals.com] The pressure gradient appears to be related to further narrowing of an already small outflow tract (already narrowed by the marked asymmetrical septal hypertrophy and possibly[emedicine.medscape.com]

  • Myocardial Infarction

    You may have a fast or uneven pulse. Your blood pressure may be normal, high, or low. You will have an electrocardiogram (ECG) to look for heart damage.[medlineplus.gov] pulse pressure ( difference of ) Raised JVP Signs of sympathetic activation Pallor (basically looking pasty .[almostadoctor.co.uk] In other patients abnormal heart sounds may be detected, or rales (signs of fluid in the lungs), an irregular pulse or a high or even low blood pressure.[serious-science.org]

  • Supravalvular Aortic Stenosis

    This patient group tends to be especially sensitive to falls in blood pressure, perhaps, because of coronary artery narrowing in the location of the coronary arteries below[circgenetics.ahajournals.org] The cardiovascular examination revealed a hyperdynamic pulse at apex in the fifth intercostal space at anterior axillary line and parvus et tardus radial pulses.[scielo.br] Loss of the windkessel effect, as occurs normally with aging, produces a wide pulse pressure with elevated systolic and reduced diastolic aortic pressures. 8 In addition,[journals.lww.com]
