229 Possible Causes for Peripheral Pulse Decreased

  • Vasculitis

    Classically, children present with claudication, absent peripheral pulses, blood pressure abnormalities, strokes, and features of internal organ ischemia.[] peripheral artery pulse and/or claudication of extremities Blood pressure difference of more than 10 mm Hg Bruits over aorta and/or its major branches Hypertension (related[] Characteristic clinical features are caused by stenotic large vessels and subsequently decreased blood supply to the organ systems.[]

  • Takayasu Arteritis

    pulses are decreased or absent in patients at low risk of atherosclerosis and other aortic disorders, especially in young women.[] peripheral artery pulses, (2) blood pressure difference greater than 10 mm Hg in any limb, (3) bruits of the aorta or its major branches, (4) hypertension, and (5) elevated[] […] angiography or aortic arteriography The diagnosis of Takayasu arteritis is suspected when symptoms suggest ischemia of organs supplied by the aorta or its branches or when peripheral[]

  • Hypovolemic Shock

    pulsesdecreased urine output • Increased Cardiac Contractility: • Blood Pressure 8.[] A narrow pulse pressure in a hypovolemic shock patient indicates a decreasing cardiac output and an increasing peripheral vascular resistance.[] A narrowing in the pulse pressure, an early symptom of hypovolemic shock, reflects a decrease in stroke volume and peripheral vasoconstriction.[]

  • Hypovolemia

    These circulation changes include tachycardia, narrowing pulse pressure, possible systolic hypotension, capillary refill time 2 seconds, cool/pale skin, weak to absent peripheral[] The decrease in pulse pressure is a result of increased catecholamine levels, which causes an increase in peripheral vascular resistance and a subsequent increase in the diastolic[] A narrow pulse pressure in a hypovolemic shock patient indicates a decreasing cardiac output and an increasing peripheral vascular resistance.[]

  • Ergotism

    Symptoms are typically claudication and a burning sensation in the lower limbs, decreased distal pulses, and skin that is cool to the touch with a bluish discoloration in[] In the gangrenous form of modern ergotism, patients are mentally intact, and peripheral vasculature is the target of the disorder, due to alpha-adrenergic stimulation.[]

  • Leriche Syndrome

    Obstruction in the more proximal vessels is easily recognized when palpation of the femoral artery reveals decreased or absent pulse.[] Typically, Leriche syndrome is associated with a poorer prognosis as compared to more distal peripheral arterial diseases.[]

  • Peripheral Vascular Disease

    […] legs or feet Weak or absent pulses in the limb If your case of peripheral artery disease is more severe, your doctor may find: Hair loss over the toes and feet Painful, non-bleeding[] Other symptoms of peripheral vascular disease may include: changes in the skin, including decreased skin temperature, or thin, brittle shiny skin on the legs and feet diminished[] During which, he or she may find: A whooshing sound with the stethoscope over the artery (arterial bruits) Decreased blood pressure in the affected limb Loss of hair on the[]

  • Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm

    Examine the patient for signs of shock, including decreased capillary refill, increased pulse and respirations, a drop in urine output, weak peripheral pulses, and cool and[]

  • Cold Exposure

    […] blood flow is reduced and due to lactic acid and CO2 buildup in the muscles Skin is pale Pupils dilate Pulse rate decreases at 90 degrees the body tries to move into hibernation[] , shutting down all peripheral blood flow and reducing breathing rate and heart rate. at 86 degrees the body is in a state of "metabolic icebox."[] […] body shuts down on shivering to conserve glucose Person falls to the ground, can't walk, curls up into a fetal position to conserve heat Muscle rigidity develops - because peripheral[]

  • Lower Extremity Arteriosclerosis

    […] or absent pulse in the extremities, or decreased blood pressure in the affected limb.[] Peripheral artery disease may be revealed by: An abnormal ratio between the blood pressure of the ankle and arm (ankle/brachial index, or ABI).[] […] weak or absent in the limb Walking/gait abnormalities Signs and tests An examination may show arterial bruits (whooshing sound heard with the stethoscope over the artery), decreased[]
