Decreased Or Absent Pulse
Slightly weaker: The fistula it self should have a strong pulsation but the pulse below it is a bit weaker because the fistula steals some of the arterial blood from the artery that goes down to the wrist providing that arterial pressure to the vein above it. It should remain palpable though and the hand should remains well supplied with blood. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
What are the signs and symptoms of left sided heart failure due associated with decreased cardiac output?
Congestion: Breathlessness, especially with exertion. Easy fatigability. Impaired exercise capacity. These are early signs. Without treatment, one becomes short of breath resting, especially when lying down (orthopnea) and at night (paroxysmal nocturnal dyspnea). Eventually the right heart also fails leading to swelling (edema), abdominal fluid (ascites and effusions), and cachexia (wasting). ...Read more

What are the signs and symptoms of left sided heart failure associated with decreased cardiac output?
Swelling: The left side of the heart pumps blood throughout your body. When it fails, it decreases blood flow to organs. This can cause kidney injury, liver injury, fatigue, shortness of breath with little exertion, swelling of the feet and legs, fluid build-up in the lungs, and difficulty sleeping flat due to shortness of breath. Medications and diet are important for this disease! ...Read more
Decreased.: Preeclampsia is a disorder with decreased intravascular volume (vasoconstriciton and leaky capillaries lead to third-spacing), therefore the cardiac output is accordingly decreased.

It is a vasospasm...: Raynaud's disease causes low blood flow in periphery, e.g. Fingers, due to spasm in small peripheral arteries like in hands and feet. Accordingly, discoloration, tingling, numbness, and even pain develop. Due to the already decreased circulating blood volume in dehydration, a raynaud's condition could conceivably appear worse. ...Read more
