Tamponade is paradoxical RV collapse during diastole. Sometimes it’s hard to tell if that’s happening by glancing at the B-mode image. M-mode can better obviate the cardiac cycle (in lieu of ECG tracing) proving diastolic RV collapse

Gave this a try today! Unfortunately the US we were using didn't have the resolution to get a clear confirmation. Would love to try again with a better device.

Good reminder about trimethoprim and hyperkalemia in . Risk goes way up in patients on ACEIs, ARBs or spironolactone.
