Thready pulse

Thready pulse refers to a medical term used to describe a pulse or heartbeat that feels weak, thin, and irregular, similar to a thread being felt under the fingers. When a person has a thready pulse, it typically indicates a decreased volume of blood being pumped by the heart with each beat.

This condition can be a sign of various underlying health issues, such as low blood pressure, dehydration, heart failure, or shock. Healthcare professionals use the term “thready pulse” to communicate the specific quality of the pulse during a physical examination, which helps them assess the individual’s cardiovascular health and determine appropriate medical interventions.
