In modern medicine, reliance on clinical signs is rapidly diminishing. Although the cornerstone of valvular heart disease assessment is the history and echocardiographic findings, physical examination remains an important part of the diagnostic work-up to identify patients who require further investigation. Assessment of the pulse remains a fundamental skill for all doctors. This article reviews how to elicit and interpret a 'collapsing' pulse, and hopefully allay some fear in those sitting exams.
