ABSTRACT
A patient with cardiomegaly due to primary myocardial disease was found to have pulsus alternans despite normal systolic and diastolic pressures in the left ventricle and a normal cardiac index. This phenomenon can therefore occur as an early rather than a late sign of left ventricular dysfunction. Intravenous ouabain can obliterate alternation of th pulse without change in cardiac index or decrease in ventricular diastolic pressure.
