English term or phrase: collapsing pulse
character of (peripheral) pulse finding
I find pulsus celer et altus, Wasserhammerpuls for this but I am not convinced as it does not seem to make sense to me for collapsing.
Can anyone out there confirm
thanks

German translation:nicht so abwegig, s. Erklärungen
Explanation:
Pulse, water hammer: A jerky pulse that is full and then collapses because of aortic insufficiency (when blood ejected into the aorta regurgitates back through the aortic valve into the left ventricle). This type of pulse was likened to a water hammer, a Victorian toy consisting of a glass tube filled partly with water or mercury in a vacuum. The water or mercury produced a slapping impact when the glass tube was turned over. Also called a Corrigan pulse or a cannonball, collapsing, pistol-shot, or trip-hammer pulse.

Wasser|hammer|puls
engl.: water-hammer pulse

»hämmernder« Puls mit raschem Druckanstieg (hartes, kurzes Anklopfen) bei Aorteninsuffizienz.
