Kussmaul's sign in a patient with suspected pulmonary embolism



 - Dr. David Juurlink

@DavidJuurlink



Kussmaul sign is a paradoxical rise in jugular venous pressure (JVP) on inspiration, or a failure in the appropriate fall of the JVP with inspiration. It can be seen in some forms of heart disease and is usually indicative of limited right ventricular filling due to right heart dysfunction.
