Medical Examination

Observation of both jugular veins can provide a reliable indication of the volume and pressure in the right side of the heart since internal jugular veins pulsate in response to phasic changes in right atrial pressure. Proper positioning of the patient to increase the effects of gravity enhances distention of the jugular veins and, therefore, increases the ability to observe venous pulsations.
