Cardiac tamponade shares symptoms and signs such as dyspnea, edema, and low urine output with other, more-common diseases. Consider it when there is chest trauma or when the patient has a chronic medical illness that can involve the pericardium. Successfully treating it can be rewarding for both the patient and the physician.
