214 Possible Causes for Narrow Pulse Pressure

  • Anemia

    Class III (30-40% blood loss) always leads to a measurable decrease in blood pressure as well as significant tachycardia and a narrow pulse pressure.[emedicine.com] Class I ( Class II (15-30% blood loss) – Tachycardia, tachypnea, and a decreased pulse pressure are seen.[emedicine.com]

  • Congestive Heart Failure

    Signs There may be a tachycardia at rest, low systolic blood pressure (BP), a displaced apex (LV dilatation) or RV heave (pulmonary hypertension), a narrow pulse pressure[patient.info]

  • 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]

  • Acute Myocardial Infarction

    We herein report the case of a 25-year-old Japanese woman with left-main-trunk acute myocardial infarction (LMT-AMI). She had cardiogenic shock, so emergency percutaneous intervention was performed. Intravascular ultrasound of LMT-AMI showed that the three-layered structure of the intima, tunica media, and[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy

    We determined the distribution frequency of angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE) polymorphism in 100 patients with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy and 106 of their unaffected siblings and offspring. The distribution of ACE genotypes was different in the two groups: allele D frequency of 0.69 in patients and 0.57 in[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Aortic Valve Stenosis

    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] Clinical examination classically reveals a narrow pulse pressure, a slow-rising peripheral pulse, pulsus parvus et tardus (weak and delayed pulse) in the carotid pulse, a[radiopaedia.org]

  • 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]
