72 Possible Causes for 1 atrioventricular block, Abnormal Pulse, Altered Mental Status

  • Cardiac Arrhythmia

    K, 3 D) Atrioventricular block ‎ (4 K, 9 D) B Bradycardia ‎ (2 K, 2 D) Brugada syndrome ‎ (1 K) Bundle branch block ‎ (5 K, 2 D) H Histopathology of cardiac myofiberbreak-up[commons.wikimedia.org] When the device senses an abnormal heart rhythm, it sends electrical pulses to prompt the heart to beat at a normal rate.[web.archive.org] They are the most common causes of bradycardia: First degree heart block, which manifests as PR prolongation Second degree heart block Type 1 Second degree heart block, also[en.wikipedia.org]

  • Third Degree Atrioventricular Block

    Before we return to the case study, we will cover the rules for differentiation of atrioventricular blocks on the ECG: A 1 Atrioventricular Block is not a block, per se, but[ems12lead.com] Heart block is a condition where the heart beats more slowly or with an abnormal rhythm.[nhs.uk] mental status Hypotension Lethargy In patients with concomitant myocardial ischemia or myocardial infarction (MI), corresponding signs such as the following may be evident[emedicine.medscape.com]

  • Orthostatic Hypotension

    We describe the case of an 81-year-old male patient with long PR interval and episodes of 2:1 atrioventricular block, in whom the implantation of a dual chamber pacemaker[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Steroid pulse therapy and L-threo-3,4-dihydroxyphenylserine caused regression of brainstem signs and reduced syncopal attacks.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Have severely altered mental status. Have possible spinal injuries. Have lower extremity or pelvic fractures. Are not mobile enough to get out of bed.[ahrq.gov]

  • Atrial Fibrillation

    Atrial pacing is associated with a reduced incidence of atrial fibrillation, as compared with ventricular pacing, 1 but atrioventricular block may occur even in carefully[dx.doi.org] There is an initiative called "Check Your Pulse" aimed at identifying abnormal heart rates and patients with undiagnosed atrial fibrillation early.[onhealth.com] Patient B, a 77-year-old man, presented 21 days post-atrial fibrillation ablation with left-arm weakness and altered mental status.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Syncope

    Diagnosis of Paroxysmal Atrioventricular Block According to Type of Conduction Disturbance.[revespcardiol.org] […] movements A slow, weak pulse Dilated pupils Recovery after a vasovagal episode generally begins in less than a minute.[mayoclinic.org] mental status until treated, onset seldom abrupt, sweating, piloerection Usually history of diabetes or insulinoma Fingerstick glucose Response to glucose infusion Psychiatric[merckmanuals.com]

  • Myocardial Infarction

    A third-degree atrioventricular block after thrombolysis for AIS could signal a STEMI onset.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The provider may hear abnormal sounds in your lungs (called crackles), a heart murmur, or other abnormal sounds. You may have a fast or uneven pulse.[nlm.nih.gov] The man was bitten on the left index finger and subsequently developed localized edema followed by hypotension, chest pain, and altered mental status.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Vasovagal Syncope

    Abstract A 21 year old man presented with multiple, recurrent episodes of complete atrioventricular (AV) block associated with swallowing.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] movements A slow, weak pulse Dilated pupils Recovery after a vasovagal episode begins soon after fainting, generally in less than a minute.[fortishealthcare.com] […] movements A slow, weak pulse Dilated pupils Recovery after a vasovagal episode generally begins in less than a minute.[mayoclinic.org]

  • Acute Myocardial Infarction

    block in the setting of AMI. 405 Atrioventricular block complicates 12% to 13% of patients presenting with an inferior MI and is associated with increased 30-day, 6-month[circ.ahajournals.org] The doctor may hear abnormal sounds in your lungs (called crackles), a heart murmur, or other abnormal sounds. You may have a rapid pulse.[utmedicalcenter.org] In addition, some patients may have an altered mental status caused by medications or impaired cerebral perfusion.[emedicine.medscape.com]

  • Ventricular Fibrillation

    Postdefibrillation arrhythmias (mainly atrioventricular [AV] blocks) have been reported in up to 24% of patients.[emedicine.medscape.com] Ventricular fibrillation is an abnormally irregular heart rhythm caused by rapid, ineffective, uncoordinated contraction of the ventricles which produce no peripheral pulse[symptoma.com] She was intubated for altered mental status and respiratory failure and subsequently had 5 episodes of ventricular fibrillation, each resolving with a single defibrillation[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Cardiac Arrest

    Infants with long-QT syndrome and 2:1 atrioventricular block. Am Heart J. 130 : 1995 ; 1130–4.[doi.org] Often, people who have cardiac arrest will get an implantable cardioverter-defibrillator (ICD) that uses electrical pulses to control abnormal heart rhythms, especially ones[mercy.net] A 10-year-old previously healthy child presented with sudden cardiac arrest after an insidious course of throat pain, fever, and progressive altered mental status.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
