List of current finding(s):

Neoplastic Disorders
Right atrial myxoma
Allergic, Collagen, Auto-Immune Disorders
Metabolic, Storage Disorders
Amyloidosis, heart
Cardiomyopathy, hemochromatosis
Congenital, Developmental Disorders
Tricuspid valve, stenosis
Tricuspid valve, Ebstein anomaly
Anatomic, Foreign Body, Structural Disorders
Tamponade, cardiac
Pericardial effusion
Tension pneumothorax
Cardiomyopathy, restrictive
Pericarditis, chronic constrictive
Arteriosclerotic, Vascular, Venous Disorders
Right ventricle infarction
Functional, Physiologic Variant Disorders
Valsalva maneuver/severe
Vegetative, Autonomic, Endocrine Disorders
Cor pulmonale
Reference to Organ System
Right congestive heart failure/chronic
Emphysema/COPD/Chronic lung disease
Acute cor pulmonale
Right Ventricular outflow obstruction
Right ventricular/volume-pressure load
Aspiration, Breathing in, During, Increased venous pressure, Increased venous pressure (finding), Increased venous pulse pressure, Inhalation, Inhalations, Inhaled, Inhaling, Inhaling (observable entity), Inhalings, Inspiration, inspiration (breathing), Inspiration (function), Inspiration (observable entity), Inspiration function, Inspiration function (observable entity), Inspiration Respiratory, Inspiratory, Inspired, Kussmaul sign, paradoxal, Pressure venous increased, Pulse pressure venous increased, Respiratory Inspiration, VENOUS BLOOD PRESSURE INCREASE, venous increased pressure, Venous pressure increased

JVD increases with inspiration paradox indicates right heart stress and non filling event ie pericardial effusion or restrictive pericarditis
