The pericardial sac normally holds about 25 ml of pericardial fluid, which cushions and protects the heart and reduces friction between the membranes of the heart (11). Bleeding into the pericardial sac or a small pericardial rupture may or may not cause cardiac tamponade, depending on the amount of pressure in the pericardium (11). However, an increase of 50–100 ml of blood or more into the pericardium may compress the heart and thus decrease cardiac filling, which leads to reduced cardiac output and, eventually, shock (11).
