3,743 Possible Causes for Acute Respiratory Failure, CT Scan showing Adrenal Mass, Ventricular Fibrillation

  • Hypokalemia

    Adrenal imaging with computerized tomography (CT) scan showed a low-density mass measuring 2.1 cm in diameter in the left adrenal (Figure 2 ).[] She presented with marked hypophosphatemia, hypokalemia, acute renal failure and acute respiratory failure.[] To report a case of ventricular fibrillation caused by severe hypokalemia probably associated with sertraline use.[]

  • Tricyclic Antidepressant Overdose

    failure, paralysis Airway protection and IPPV, atropine, pralidoxime Opioid Heroin, morphine CNS and respiratory depression, small pupils Hypothermia, bradycardia, respiratory[] The terminal event was ventricular fibrillation resistant to defibrillation. The autopsy toxicology report showed elevated levels of amitriptyline.[] Tricyclic poisoning: successful management of ventricular fibrillation following massive overdose of imipramine.[]

  • Smoke Inhalation Injury

    The overall data suggests that there is no improvement in survival for burn patients suffering acute hypoxemic respiratory failure, with the use of ECMO.[] Respiratory Distress Syndrome (ARDS) who have had a smoke inhalation injury, and to compare with those without an inhalation injury.[] Inhalation injury increases the risk of developing respiratory failure from acute lung injury/ARDS and pneumonia.[]

  • Electrolyte Imbalance

    Answers QUESTION 1 The CT scan (figure 2 ) shows a large mass (arrow) arising from the region of the right adrenal gland.[] […] muscle breakdown, can lead to respiratory failure, bone density is decreased (leads to bone fractures), irritability, may progress seizure activity followed by coma - 4.5[] Here, a young woman with prior episodes of auditory stimulus-induced syncope presented with LQTS and ventricular fibrillation (VF) with hypomagnesaemia and hypocalcaemia after[]

  • Thallium Poisoning

    Immediate cardiovascular complications included hypertension, sinus tachycardia, ECG abnormalities and an episode of ventricular fibrillation.[] Two hours after CRRT was started, the patient suffered a ventricular fibrillation arrest from which he could not be resuscitated.[] Approximately 2 h later, he developed unstable ventricular tachycardia leading to ventricular fibrillation that required ultimately unsuccessful cardiopulmonary resuscitation[]

    The thoracic-abdominal CT scan showed a retroesophageal mass measuring 5.6 3.2 6.8 cm, which was suspicious for parathyroid tumour, in addition to bilateral hypodense adrenal[] Blood Pressure * Low Systemic Arterial Blood Pressure * Tachycardia and Bradycardia * Arterial Hypoxemia * Acute Respiratory Failure * Pulmonary Edema * Polyuria * Oliguria[] : ventricular fibrillation ) and muscle/smooth muscle weakness.[]

  • Pheochromocytoma

    If imaging with MRI or CT scans of the adrenal glands shows a mass in the gland (or outside it), surgery may be done.[] In 2010, a reported case of PMC was described that initially presented with acute respiratory failure and encephalopathy, in which surgical resection was performed 11 days[] Cardiac arrhythmias, such as atrial and ventricular fibrillation, may occur because of excessive plasma catecholamine levels.[]

  • Chloroform Poisoning

    Consider admission and observation for the following patients, even if they are initially asymptomatic, as they are at increased risk of progression to respiratory failure[] […] disease after acute exposures to chlorine gas are described in the literature.[] : Patients exposed to large concentrations in an enclosed environment Patients with underlying respiratory or cardiovascular disease Children Cases of chronic reactive airway[]
