23 Possible Causes for Water Hammer Pulse

  • Aortic Valve Insufficiency

    The "water-hammer" pulse is known as Corrigan's sign, while De Musset's sign describes a specific bobbing motion of the head with each cardiac cycle.[symptoma.com] pulsing of the neck artery a “water-hammerpulse, which is a pounding pulse that’s typical of aortic insufficiency sounds of blood leaking from the aortic valve Diagnostic[healthline.com] They’ll also listen to your heart, review your pulse and blood pressure, and look for indicators of heart valve problems, such as: an unusually forceful heartbeat visible[healthline.com]
