Therefore, early recognition and treatment are important.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] T wave of the electrocardiogram, and muscle weakness.[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com]

  • Cushing's Disease

    We report the effects of presurgical pasireotide therapy in CD patients in whom hypercortisolism caused life-threatening hypokalemia, alkalosis, and cardio-respiratory complications[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Nussey, Hypokalaemic alkalosis., Postgraduate Medical Journal, 10.1136/pgmj.74.871.305, 74, 871, (305-306), (1998).[doi.org] Paul, Correction of metabolic alkalosis by potassium chloride in ectopic adrenocorticotropic hormone syndrome, American Journal of Kidney Diseases, 28, 4, (610), (1996).[doi.org]

  • Electrolyte Imbalance

    Clinical signs of hyperkalaemia include muscle weakness, hypotension , bradycardia and loss of cardiac output, and ECG changes may include peaked T waves and flattened P waves[ausmed.com] […] with a previously unrecognized syndrome characterized by seizures, sensorineural deafness, ataxia, mental retardation, and electrolyte imbalance (hypokalemia, metabolic alkalosis[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Two main types of electrolyte disturbances are: (1) Hypokalemia : low potassium and (2) alkalosis : high blood alkaline levels.[glossary.feast-ed.org]

  • Acute Mountain Sickness

    In response to hypoxia, control subjects hyperventilated and developed mild respiratory alkalosis with increased blood pH and reduced carbon dioxide tension and bicarbonate[nejm.org] Laboratory tests like complete blood count may be abnormal with elevated hematocrit, and erythrocytosis while arterial blood gas analysis will reveal respiratory alkalosis[symptoma.com] Concurrently, a lowered alveolar PCO 2 produces a respiratory alkalosis, acting as a brake on the respiratory center of the brain and subsequently limiting further increases[emedicine.medscape.com]

  • Digitalis Toxicity

    Electrocardiographic signs of digitalis toxicity include first-degree atrioventricular (A-V) block with depressed S-T segments, shortened Q-T intervals, and flattened T waves[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com] […] other causes of digitalis toxicity include: hypercalcemia, renal insufficiency, hyperthyroidism, myocardial infarction or ischemia, hypothyroidism, advanced age, hypoxemia, alkalosis[symptoma.com]

  • Hypokalemic Periodic Paralysis

    Some electrocardiographic (ECG) findings associated with hypokalemia include flattened or inverted T waves, a U wave and ST depression.[flipper.diff.org] Arterial blood gas showed mild metabolic alkalosis with respiratory compensation. Thus, a clinical diagnosis of GS was made.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Laboratory examinations revealed hypokalemic alkalosis, normomagnesemia, hypercalciuria, and hyperaldosteronism.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Laxative Abuse

    ECG revealed sinus rhythm with a left axis deviation, T-wave flattening but no U waves. Renal ultrasound showed normal sized kidneys with no evidence of hydronephrosis.[ndt.oxfordjournals.org] Melanosis coli and cathartic colon, acid-base disturbances (usually metabolic alkalosis), sodium, potassium and water depletion, hyperuricemia, hyperaldosteronism and other[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Acute diarrhea: Metabolic acidosis due to hypovolemia Chronic diarrhea: Metabolic alkalosis secondary to hypokalemia-induced inhibition of chloride uptake in the intestine[tipsdiscover.com]

  • Low Chloride

    PR or QT intervals may be prolonged and T waves flattened or inverted.[nursingcenter.com] Chronic low Cl- levels can leading to metabolic alkalosis, low fluid volume in the blood serum and urinary potassium loss.[allnutriments.blogspot.com] Loss of gastric acid (vomiting, NG drainage) and diuretic use account for 90% of clinical cases of metabolic alkalosis Gastric alkalosis is most marked with vomiting due to[anaesthesiamcq.com]
