  • Pulmonary insufficiency (or incompetence, or regurgitation) is a condition in which the pulmonary valve is incompetent and allows backflow from the pulmonary artery to the right ventricle of the heart during diastole. (wikipedia.org)
  • medical citation needed] Among the causes of pulmonary insufficiency are: Pulmonary hypertension Infective endocarditis Rheumatic heart disease Connective tissue disease Carcinoid syndrome Congestive abnormalities Tetralogy of Fallot, Prosthetic heart valve The pathophysiology is due to diastolic pressure variations between the pulmonary artery and right ventricle, differences are often very small, but increase regurgitation.

  • Due to similarity to myocardial infarction (heart attack) pain, pericarditis can be misdiagnosed as an acute myocardial infarction (a heart attack) solely based on the clinical data and so extreme suspicion on the part of the diagnostician is required. (wikipedia.org)
  • available

  • During a 3-month period, 862 patients in labor with live fetuses between 24 and 43 weeks of gestation were available for auscultation in the prospective study. (icpa4kids.org)
  • Auscultation with stringent evaluation and recording frequency is not feasible under normal labor and delivery room conditions unless 1:1 nursing care is always available. (icpa4kids.org)
  • pulse
  • Pulse at wrist generally less that rate heart on cardiac auscultation. (brainscape.com)
  • Pulse (or the count of arterial pulse per minute) is equivalent to measuring the heart rate. (wikipedia.org)
  • This has a reason: the finger closest to the heart is used to occlude the pulse pressure, the middle finger is used get a crude estimate of the blood pressure, and the finger most distal to the heart (usually the ring finger) is used to nullify the effect of the ulnar pulse as the two arteries are connected via the palmar arches (superficial and deep). (wikipedia.org)
  • The heart rate may be greater or lesser than the pulse rate depending upon physiologic demand. (wikipedia.org)
  • Normal pulse rates at rest, in beats per minute (BPM): The pulse rate can be used to check overall heart health and fitness level. (wikipedia.org)
  • diagnosis
  • Patent pending Heart Energy Signature has a great potential to become de-facto standard to record, store, compare and track sound based heart diagnosis data. (prweb.com)
  • During cardiac auscultation, or listening to the sounds of the heart, it is vital that a physician understand the standard sequence of events in the normal heart to be able to appreciate and make a physical diagnosis from heart sounds. (umich.edu)
  • Acute myocardial infarction (heart attack) can also cause pericarditis, but the presenting symptoms often differ enough to warrant diagnosis. (wikipedia.org)
