Physical Exam - Quincke’s Pulse



The tips of the patient’s index finger and thumb as well as the nail bed of the thumb exhibited capillary pulsation — a sign known as Quincke’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.
