Physical Exam - Corrigan's Pulse



While the patient was sitting upright, the right carotid artery was visibly pulsatile, with systolic swelling and rapid diastolic collapse — a sign known as Corrigan’s pulse.



Corrigan’s pulse and Quincke’s pulse are two findings of chronic severe aortic regurgitation and are manifestations of a wide pulse pressure with large systolic stroke volume and rapid fall in arterial pressure.
