"Prompt recognition of cardiac tamponade is critical since the underlying haemodynamic disorder can lead to death if not resolved by percutaneous or surgical drainage of the pericardium. Cardiac tamponade is a condition caused by the compression of the heart due to slow or rapid accumulation of fluid (exudate), pus, blood, clots, or gas within the pericardial space resulting in impaired diastolic filling and cardiac output due to increased intrapericardial pressure"
