294 Possible Causes for Peripheral Pulse Decreased, Prolonged Capillary Refill

  • Hypovolemia

    These circulation changes include tachycardia, narrowing pulse pressure, possible systolic hypotension, capillary refill time 2 seconds, cool/pale skin, weak to absent peripheral[acls-algorithms.com] Prolonged capillary refill ( 2 seconds) , especially when combined with tachycardia, is more specific, although it may be difficult to measure.[openanesthesia.org] Prolonged capillary refill time (pressing on the nail) and orthostatic hypotension are not reliable signs of mild to moderate hypovolemia 5 .[ehealthstar.com]

  • Hypovolemic Shock

    pulsesdecreased urine output • Increased Cardiac Contractility: • Blood Pressure 8.[slideshare.net] Prolonged capillary refill ( 2 seconds) , especially when combined with tachycardia, is more specific, although it may be difficult to measure.[openanesthesia.org] If the 5th toe is cold with a prolonged capillary refill, I progress to the other toes, up the foot, then the leg.[hawaii.edu]

  • Acute Gastroenteritis

    Examination of the extremities should be included because general perfusion and capillary refill can help in assessment of dehydration.[cdc.gov] An especially valid sign is the presence of prolonged skin tenting ( 41 ).[cdc.gov]

  • 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[visualdx.com] 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.[visualdx.com]

  • Leriche Syndrome

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