43 Possible Causes for Prolonged Capillary Refill

  • Necrotizing Fasciitis

    Necrotizing fasciitis is one of the most dangerous complication of an abscess and it is still a disease with a high mortality. In this work, we decided to consider two cases: the first one concerns a male subject, aged 66, deceased because of a fatal necrotizing fasciitis associated to a cervical descending[…][]

  • Hypovolemia

    Prolonged capillary refill ( 2 seconds), especially when combined with tachycardia, is more specific, although it may be difficult to measure.[] Prolonged capillary refill time (pressing on the nail) and orthostatic hypotension are not reliable signs of mild to moderate hypovolemia 5 .[] Prolonged capillary refill time (pressing on the nail) and orthostatic hypotension are not reliable signs of mild to moderate hypovolemia 5.[]

  • Infectious Colitis

    Abstract The most useful individual signs for identifying dehydration in children are prolonged capillary refill time, abnormal skin turgor, and abnormal respiratory pattern[] capillary refill, poor skin turgor, and abnormal breathing. [23] [40] Other useful findings (when used in combination) include sunken eyes, decreased activity, a lack of[] The best clinical indicators of more than 5% dehydration are prolonged capillary refill, abnormal skin turgor, and absent tears. 9 The recommendations for assessing and managing[]

  • Infectious Enteritis

    In children the most useful clinical signs for identifying dehydration are an unwell appearance, prolonged capillary refill time (of more than two seconds) abnormal skin turgor[]

  • Sepsis

  • Multifocal Atrial Tachycardia

    He presented also an important tachycardia at 270beats/min with weak pulses, cold extremities, prolonged capillary refill time and hypotension at 55/30 mmHg.[]

  • Diarrhea

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

  • Syncope

    Physical Examination Vital Signs (including orthostatic BP) Cardiac Exam (Murmurs, UE/LE pulses, capillary refill) Fluid Status Assessment (Mucous membranes, skin turgor)[] […] seizures, migraine, sudden death, cardiomyopathies) History of similar episodes Emotional state (social stressors) Drug use or medications (pro-arrhythmic medications; QT-prolonging[]

  • Upper Gastrointestinal Hemorrhage
