In what way is cardiac tamponade cholesistisis spread?

Cardiac tamponade. Cardiac tamponade and cholecystitis are two diffrent kinds of problems effect two different organs. There is no such thing like spread for these diseases. Your question is not clear. Read more...
Confused. Cardiac tamponade is a condition in which the non-elastic pericardial sac surrounding the heart fills with fluid which interferes with cardiac filling. Cholecystitis is acute inflammation of the gall bladder. The 2 conditions are unrelated and neither one "spreads". I'm sorry, i'm not sure what you're asking. Read more...

What are the presenting symptoms of cardiac tamponade?

Tamponade Symptoms. Cardiac tamponade is caused by fluid or blood collecting aroung the heart constricting the heart and not allowing it to fill correctly resulting in low blood pressure. Symptoms usually include shortness of breath, weakness, coming close to passing out, or passing out. Chest pain is not uncommon due to irritation of the lining of the heart. It gets better sitting up and worse lying down. Read more...

Hi doctors, was just wondering what is cardiac tamponade cholesistisis?

Two diagnoses. Two different diagnoses. Cardiac tamponade occurs when fluid build up around the heart causes problems with the heart filling, which can be a life threatening condition. Cholecystitis is inflammation of the gallbladder. Read more...

How can pericarditis lead to a cardiac tamponade?

Fluid build up. The irritated pericardial lining weeps fluid which builds up in the tight space until the pressure impinges on the hearts ability to pump. Read more...
Fluid accumulation. Serous or bloody fluid accumulates in response to the irritation -itis! it only takes a small amount to fill the pericardial sac and compress the heart-tamponade. Read more...

Can planting a permenant pacemaker cause cardiac tamponade?

Yes. If a pacemaker lead perforated the right atrial or ventricular wall....If suspected echocardiogram should be ordered immediately. Read more...
Yes. If the wire puntures the heart, blood fills the sac surrounding the heart and tamponade can result. This is a known risk of the procedure and occurs ~1:500 times. Read more...

What is cardiac tamponade?

Tamponade. Cardiac tamponade relates to impaired diastolic filling as a consequence of pericardial-ventricular pressure interactions wherein increasing pericardial pressures due to pericardial effusion exert a negative effect on ventricular filling resulting a drop in cardiac output and bp. Discordant effects between the right and left ventricular diastolic filling during inspiration (pulsus paradoxus). Read more...
Compression. Of a chamber of heart by extrinsic compression such as from fluid or clot in the pericardium compressing on a ventricle or atrium. Read more...
