50 Possible Causes for Absent Deep Tendon Reflex, Hypernatremia

  • Coma

    Synonym(s): Persistent Vegetative State Table of Contents (click to jump to sections) What is Coma? A coma, sometimes also called persistent vegetative state, is a profound or deep state of unconsciousness. Persistent vegetative state is not brain-death. An individual in a state of coma is alive but unable to[…][]

  • General Anesthesia

    Objective: The aim of the study was to investigate the application of nerve stimulator-guided thoracic paravertebral nerve block (TPVB) plus general anesthesia (GA) in small-incision lung cancer surgery. Methods: Forty patients scheduled for small-incision lung cancer surgery, the American Society of[…][]

  • Hyponatremia

    Assessment of Hypernatremia (serum sodium 145 mEq/L [ 145 mmol/L]) FIGURE 2. Algorithm for the assessment of hypernatremia.[] […] often associated with impairment of water metabolism in elderly patients, it is absolutely essential for clinicians to be aware of the pathophysiology of hyponatremia and hypernatremia[] Per-stage prevalence of hypernatremia was 35.2% (S1), 20.2% (S3), and 19.3% (S5) with a cumulative incidence of 52.3%.[]

  • Electrolytes Abnormal

    HypernatremiaHypernatremia is defined as serum sodium 145 mEq/L and generally results from loss of water combined with a failure to adequately replace the water deficit[] Differential Diagnosis Hyponatremia Hypokalemia Hypocalcemia Hypernatremia Hyperkalemia Hypercalcemia Speaking Intelligently Electrolyte disorders are common clinical problems[] Hypernatremia Hypernatremia can result from high ultrafiltration and the repeated use of hypertonic PDF due to excessive removal of water and retention of sodium due to sieving[]

  • Hypokalemia

    Increased sodium (hypernatremia) in the blood occurs whenever there is excess sodium in relation to water.[] (Hyponatremia secondary to congestive heart failure) Potassium Electrolyte Disturbances Hyponatremia Hypernatremia Definition serum sodium of 135 mmol/L Etiology pseudohyponatremia[] There are numerous causes of hypernatremia; these may include kidney disease, too little water intake, and loss of water due to diarrhea and/or vomiting.[]

  • Hypermagnesemia

    Neurological Exam: Decreased/absent deep tendon reflexes CLINICAL WORKUP: SERUM STUDIES Serum magnesium: this serum study will help aid in the diagnosis.[] Pediatric Dose 10-20 kg: 50 mL/kg/d 20 kg: 20 mL/kg/d Contraindications Fluid retention; hypernatremia, hypertonic uterus; impaired renal or cardiac function Interactions[] Weakness, nausea and vomiting Impaired breathing Decreased respirations Low blood pressure Low blood calcium Abnormal heart rhythms and asystole Decreased or absent deep tendon[]

  • Hyperkalemia

    Deep tendon reflexes may be depressed or absent, though cranial nerves, diaphragm function, and sensation are typically normal.[] Increased sodium (hypernatremia) in the blood occurs whenever there is excess sodium in relation to water.[] Codes Adjacent To E87.5 E86 Volume depletion E86.9 Volume depletion, unspecified E87 Other disorders of fluid, electrolyte and acid-base balance E87.0 Hyperosmolality and hypernatremia[]

  • Chronic Alcoholism

    Deep tendon reflexes were diminished, but not absent. There was no sensory disturbance except for muscle tenderness.[]

  • Electrolyte Imbalance

    tendon reflexes, may be confused or lethargic, decreased peristalsis, constipation, anorexia, nausea, vomiting, abdominal distention and pain, hypoactive or absent bowel[] KEYWORDS: Hyperkalemia; Hypernatremia; Myotonic Dystrophy[] Here, we present a case of a heart donor with severe electrolyte imbalance, specifically severe hypokalemia, and severe hypernatremia.[]

  • Nemaline Myopathy

    tendon reflexes.[] […] primordial dwarfism, Montreal type Microcephalic primordial dwarfism, Toriello type Microcephaly-brachydactyly-kyphoscoliosis syndrome Microcephaly-brain defect-spasticity-hypernatremia[] The main clinical manifestations include weakness (usually most severe in the face, the neck flexors and the proximal limb muscles), hypotonia and depressed or absent deep[]
