jugular venous pulse

jugular venous pulse

The visible movement of the skin caused by movement of blood in an internal jugular vein when the subject reclines with the neck at 45. Examination of the pulse can provide information about the function of the right side of the heart. See also HEPATOJUGULAR REFLUX.
