SWP = Small Weak Pulse.
HKP = HypoKinetic Pulse.
DP = Delayed Pulse.
LBP = Large Bounding Pulse.
DPP = Double Peak Pulse
PWSD = Palpable Waves: 1 in Systole, 1 in Diastole.
AAP = Alteration of Amplitude Pulse.
DPDI = Decreased Pulse or absent During Inspiration.
SULE = Slower Upstroke of Lower Extremity pulse compared to upper extremity/disparity in amplitude.
PP = Pulsus Parvus (dimished left ventricular stroke volume, narrow pulse pressure, increased peripheral vascular resistance)
HV = HyopVolemia
LVF = Left Ventricular Failure
RC = Restrictive Cardiomyopathy
MS = Mitral Stenosis
PT = Pulses Tardus: aortic stenosis with delayed systolic peak, left ventricular obstruction.
KERKP = HypERKinetic Pulse-increased LV stroke volume, wide pulse pressure, decreased peripheral vascular resistance: AV fi stulas, mitral regurgitation, ventricular septal defect.
BWC = Bisferiens/Water hammer/Corrigan: aortic regurgitation, hypertrophic cardiomyopathy.
DICR = DICRrotic: low stroke volumes, dilated cardiomyopathy.
PALT = Pulsus ALTernans: severe impairment of LV function.
PPAR = Pulsus paradoxus: tamponade, airway obstruction, superior vena cava obstruction.
RFD = RadioFemoral Delay: coarcation of aorta.
