What Are the Symptoms and Signs of Cor Pulmonale?

Q:

I’m not feeling well. I feel something wrong with my heart. I would like to know the symptoms and signs of cor pulmonale.

A:

The symptoms of cor pulmonale may be asymptomatic and subtle, especially at the beginning stage. However, at times, some patients may have significant symptoms due to the underlying pulmonary pathology, such as dyspnea and exertional fatigue.

Then the signs of the disease may appear, including tachypnea, exertional dyspnea, and a left parasternal systolic lift. Other signs include anginal chest pain and hemoptysis. Few patients may also feel uncomfortable with hoarseness.
