    00:00 With the EKG, once again, the pericardium has been compromised and undergoing information, undergoing increased thickness.

    00:10 So low voltage, T-wave inversions. Once again, because the EKG can’t pick-up the waves properly the impulses.

    00:17 Echo, typically shows pericardial thickening, hence, the low voltage.

    00:23 Catheterization, what about this? Elevated equalization of diastolic pressures. Think about these please.

    00:30 The entire heart now has undergone or is undergoing increased pressure.

    00:37 Literally, think of the heart being underneath your foot and you’re pressing down on it.

    00:40 And while doing so, well elevated but every single chamber within the heart is shown you’re equal pressure. Isn’t it? Both ventricles. That should not be the case. Classically the diastolic way form has a shape of a square root sign.

    00:57 And I’ll show you this upcoming. And not only will I show it to you, but I will explain this to you, so that you’ll never missed it. Here we are. Let’s begin.
