    […] a or v waves, and cyanosis may be seen. the heart and lung are intricately related. whenever the heart is affected by disease, the lungs will follow and vice versa. pulmonary[allnurses.com] Physical findings may include: Jugular venous distension: Prominent jugular V wave, indicating the presence of tricuspid regurgitation Peripheral (ankle) edema: The best sign[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] On inspection, an increase in chest diameter, labored respiratory efforts with retractions of chest wall, distended neck veins with prominent a or v waves, and cyanosis may[medictests.com]

  • Chronic Right-Sided Congestive Heart Failure

    Distended neck veins with raised and/or prominent JVP and visible a or v waves. 3rd/4th heart sounds and pansystolic murmur of tricuspid regurgitation over right heart.[patient.info] In patients with considerable tricuspid regurgitation, a prominent systolic pulsation of the liver, attributable to an enlarged right atrial V wave, is often noted.[emedicine.medscape.com]

  • Tricuspid Valve Insufficiency

    V wave In some patients, a pansystolic murmur Diminished peripheral pulse volume secondary to impaired forward blood flow; patients with this sign may have relative hypotension[emedicine.medscape.com] Catheterization findings include a prominent right atrial c-v pressure wave during ventricular systole.[merckmanuals.com] Jugular venous pressure is elevated with a prominent systolic 'v' wave. Right ventricular impulse is hyperdynamic and may be thrusting in quality.[patient.info]

  • Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension

    Physical examination findings sometimes observed in PH and right ventricular (RV) dysfunction include: an elevated jugular venous pressure with prominent A waves (due to increased[content.onlinejacc.org] RV stiffness) and V waves (due to tricuspid regurgitation [TR]); Kussmaul’s sign (increased jugular venous pressure with inspiration, due to a noncompliant RV or significant[content.onlinejacc.org]
