Central Venous Pressure Increased


  • Louis, said during his presentation here. In the second arm, after a mean follow-up of 12 months, patients with high CVP experienced bleeding in 40% of cases vs. 31% in the low CVP group ( P .0378).[healio.com]
  • The present study evaluates whether the central venous pressure (CVP) can serve as an adjunct to decisions of whether or not fluid should be infused.[journals.viamedica.pl]
  • Given his history of mediastinal irradiation, constrictive pericarditis is suspected and, in fact, is proved to be present.[medicalgeek.com]
  • Abstract: A discussion concerned primarily with responses of capacitance vessels to physiologic stimuli and with the role of these vessels in the pathophysiology of some clinical conditions is presented.[popline.org]
  • The higher the pressure, the more stress that is present, the more the atheroma tends to progress, and the more heart muscle may thicken, enlarge, and weaken over time.[courses.lumenlearning.com]
Hodgkin's Disease

  • Patients with anemia and an elevated CVP have the worst prognosis.[springermedizin.de]
  • Information provided by (Responsible Party): Won Ho Kim, MD, Seoul National University Hospital Brief Summary: In urologic robotic surgery with steep Trendelenburg position, maintenance of cardiac preload and cardiac output is important for clinical prognosis[clinicaltrials.gov]
  • Some prior studies have shown that increased mean CVP in certain patient populations and disease processes may lead to poor prognosis.[annalsofintensivecare.springeropen.com]


  • However, because this patient's CVP is elevated, the suspected cause of his fluid retention shifts from hepatic disease to a cardiac etiology.[medicalgeek.com]
  • […] blood loss in the interstitium), hypotension and fainting when a person stands at rigid attention, capillary pressure increases rapidly. two events occur if the person stands too long. list them pregnancy obesity standing for weeks to years list the etiologies[quizlet.com]

  • Abstract: A discussion concerned primarily with responses of capacitance vessels to physiologic stimuli and with the role of these vessels in the pathophysiology of some clinical conditions is presented.[popline.org]
  • Thus, residual confounding to the underlying pathophysiologic processes, rather than fluid accumulation per se , is possible.[cjasn.asnjournals.org]
  • Even if the authors were surprised by the results, they seem logical when referring to pathophysiology.[esicm.org]


  • […] blood pooling in the veins of the extremities what is the function of the venous pump as a person actively moves his/her legs (and arms), muscles alternately contract and relax pushing blood toward the vena cavae. venous valves prevent retrograde blood[quizlet.com]
  • A PEEP higher than the critical closing pressure prevents alveolar collapse and can markedly improve the arterial P o 2 in patients with a lowered functional residual capacity, as in acute respiratory failure.[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com]
  • The CVC requires regular flushing to avoid haemostasis and a secure dressing to prevent tube problems. Infection- redness, pain and inflammation around the site may indicate infection.[dundeemedstudentnotes.wordpress.com]
