104 Possible Causes for Acute Respiratory Failure, Electromyogram Abnormal, No Muscle Weakness

  • Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy

    The resultant respiratory failure can easily occur from the underlying progressive nocturnal hypoventilation and hypoxia or from an acute cardiac insufficiency.[] Muscle weakness Other names Myasthenia Specialty Neurology Muscle weakness is a lack of muscle strength.[] Occasionally, however, females who carry a DMD gene mutation may have muscle weakness and cramping.[]

  • Becker Muscular Dystrophy

    ., respiratory failure, cardiac disease), or to both. CONCLUSIONS: Use of succinylcholine in children with dystrophinopathy is contraindicated.[] […] changes in the structure of the muscle cells Tests that stain the muscle sample can be used to visualize any muscle proteins present Electromyogram (EMG): Another diagnostic[] Later symptoms Muscle weakness: Affects the proximal muscles of the limbs mainly.[]

  • Polymyositis

    Acute respiratory failure due to diaphragmatic weakness revealing a polymyositis. Eur J Intern Med. 2002;13(3):203-205.[] An electromyogram showed abnormal nerve conduction with evidence of active denervation of most of the muscles tested.[] Some cases of polymyositis have manifestations of muscle weakness in the orbital muscles. Rare cases also have weaknesses in facial and bulbar muscles.[]

  • Dermatomyositis

    ECMO was giving when the patient suffered acute respiratory failure.[] (EMG) which can demonstrate abnormal electrical activity in muscles and help distinguish weakness due to muscle disease from weakness due to nerve problems A nerve conduction[] Symptoms may include: Muscle weakness, stiffness, or soreness Problems swallowing Purple color to the upper eyelids Purple-red skin rash Shortness of breath The muscle weakness[]

  • Myasthenia Gravis

    Electromyogram (EMG). A test that measures the electrical activity of a muscle.[] Proximal muscle weakness is more often seen than distal muscle weakness.[] respiratory failure after a 12-day hospitalization.[]

  • Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis

    Acute respiratory failure is sometimes the first manifestation of the disease, although onset can be more insidious.[] weakness.[] Acute respiratory failure has been reported. [ 7 ] Some patients with pseudobulbar palsy may have 'emotional incontinence', an over-reaction to sad or funny events that they[]

  • Lambert Eaton Myasthenic Syndrome

    The patient presented with acute respiratory failure, making identification and management of her illness challenging.[] It is distinguishable from normal muscle cramps by the finding of prolonged bursts of high frequency repetitive muscle action potentials on the electromyogram (EMG).[] Results: in myasthenia gravis, initial weakness involved extraocular muscles in 59%, bulbar muscles in 29%, and limb muscles in 12% of the patients.[]

  • Myotonic Dystrophy

    On neurological examination the patient was presented with muscle weakness, muscle atrophy (in face and sternocleidomastoid muscles), features of myotonia and apocamnosis[] Often, the disorder is mild and only minor muscle weakness or cataracts are seen late in life.[] DM1 is a multi-systemic disorder resulting in early-onset cataracts, cardiac rhythm problems, muscle weakness, ptosis, and cognitive and psychiatric manifestations.[]

  • Peripheral Neuropathy

    Goldenberg and Steven White, Neuromuscular Disorders and Acute Respiratory Failure: Diagnosis and Management, Neurologic Clinics, 30, 1, (161), (2012).[] A 55-year-old woman with consanguineous parents developed slowly progressive, asymmetric muscle weakness and atrophy in her forearms, while her ability to walk remained unaffected[] We present a 70-year-old male patient of Greek origin with choreatic movements of the tongue and face, lower limb muscle weakness, peripheral neuropathy, elevated creatinephosphokinase[]

  • Spinal Muscular Atrophy Type 1

    respiratory failure and hospitalizations for children with spinal muscular atrophy type 1 under 3 yrs of age.[] An EMG can detect abnormal electrical muscle activity due to diseases and neuromuscular conditions.[] AIM: This study described end-of-life care for children affected by spinal muscular atrophy type 1 (SMA1), which is characterised by progressive muscle weakness and develops[]
