3

2

95% of HTN are?

Essential (unknown)

3

Secondary HTN can be due to:

Hyperthyroidism
Cushing's
Unilateral renal artery stenosis
pheochromocytoma

4

Rapidly progressing HTN that can lead to stroke or heart failure and early death:

Malignant hypertension

5

These patients present with dyspnea on exertion, basal crackles in both lungs, paroxysmal nocturnal dyspnea, raised jugular venous pressure, tender hepatomegaly, and bilateral pitting ankle.

CHF

6

CHF is caused by: 5

Coronary artery disease
HTN
Valvular heart disease
Congenital heart disease
cardiomyopathy

7

Disease myocardium is called:

cardiomyopathy

restrictive

11

Right sided heart failure called:

Cor pulmonale

12

Two things that cause cor pulmonale?

COPD
Pulmonary embolism

13

Occurs when heart is compressed due to excess fluid in pericardial sac

Cardiac tamponade

14

Beck's triangle associated with:

Cardiac tamponade

15

What is Beck's triangle:

Hypotension
Heart sounds distant

16

Caused by atherosclerotic narrowing of large arteries:

Peripheral vascular disease

17

Present with intermittent claudication - leg pain worse on walking and relieved by rest.

Peripheral vascular disease

18

This is related to Virchow's triad:

Deep vein thrombosis

19

Virchow's triad is:
