Physical examination in ascites

Physical Examination in Ascites

  • Vital signs:fever,tachycardia,tachpnea

  • General: Encephalopathy,Jaundice,resp distress

  • JVP: distension due to RHF

  • CVS:

  • RESP: pleural effusion

  • ABDOMEN:

    Inspection: everted umbilicus, flank fullness,striae

    Palpation:

    Percussion: [Flank dullness( if absent this means that there is < 10% chance of having Ascites) there is at least 1.5 liters of Ascites if dullness is present], shifting dullness, fluid thrill.

  • Lower Limbs: pitting edema

Paracentesis procedure

Paracentesis Procedure

  • Indication: new onset Ascites in inpatient or outpatient .

  • Ascitic Tapping ( movie demonstration)

Ascitic fluid analysis panel

Ascitic fluid analysis panel

  • Cell count: differential ,PMN,% neutrophils on differential.

  • Chemistry: Albumin, total protein,LDH,glucose,amylase

  • SAAG : SerumAlbumin-AscitesAlbumin

  • Microbiology: gram stain, cultures ( aerobic and anaerobic),TB stain ( AFB)

  • Cytology:senstivity of 3 samples is better 96.7%
