69 Possible Causes for Alkalosis, Flattened T Wave

  • Hypokalemia

    […] than the T wave. flattening of the T wave.[] Patients can also present with convulsions due to severe metabolic alkalosis or hypomagnesemia. Therefore, early recognition and treatment are important.[] T wave of the electrocardiogram, and muscle weakness.[]

  • 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[] Nussey, Hypokalaemic alkalosis., Postgraduate Medical Journal, 10.1136/pgmj.74.871.305, 74, 871, (305-306), (1998).[] Paul, Correction of metabolic alkalosis by potassium chloride in ectopic adrenocorticotropic hormone syndrome, American Journal of Kidney Diseases, 28, 4, (610), (1996).[]

  • 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[] […] with a previously unrecognized syndrome characterized by seizures, sensorineural deafness, ataxia, mental retardation, and electrolyte imbalance (hypokalemia, metabolic alkalosis[] Two main types of electrolyte disturbances are: (1) Hypokalemia : low potassium and (2) alkalosis : high blood alkaline levels.[]

  • 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[] Laboratory tests like complete blood count may be abnormal with elevated hematocrit, and erythrocytosis while arterial blood gas analysis will reveal respiratory alkalosis[] 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[]

  • 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[] […] other causes of digitalis toxicity include: hypercalcemia, renal insufficiency, hyperthyroidism, myocardial infarction or ischemia, hypothyroidism, advanced age, hypoxemia, alkalosis[]

  • Hypokalemic Periodic Paralysis

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

  • Salicylate Poisoning

    , flattened T waves, QT prolongation; may reflect hypokalemia 16.[] This leads to a respiratory alkalosis.[] Stolbach AI, Hoffm... 276.2 Acidosis 276.3 Alkalosis 965.1 Poisoning by salicylates E87.2 Acidosis E87.3 Alkalosis T39.011A Poisoning by aspirin, accidental (unintentional[]

  • Hypomagnesemia

    t-waves, C hvostek’s sign (positive which goes along with hypocalcemia) H ypertension, h yperreflexia I nvoluntary movements N ausea G I issues (decreased bowel sounds and[] We present a novel case of a woman with coincident occurrence of auditory and visual hallucinations, electrolyte disturbances, chloride unresponsive alkalosis, and an eating[] Laboratory tests showed hypokalemia, metabolic alkalosis, hypocalciuria, and hypomagnesemia related to genetically proven GS.[]

  • 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.[] Melanosis coli and cathartic colon, acid-base disturbances (usually metabolic alkalosis), sodium, potassium and water depletion, hyperuricemia, hyperaldosteronism and other[] Acute diarrhea: Metabolic acidosis due to hypovolemia Chronic diarrhea: Metabolic alkalosis secondary to hypokalemia-induced inhibition of chloride uptake in the intestine[]

  • Low Chloride

    PR or QT intervals may be prolonged and T waves flattened or inverted.[] Chronic low Cl- levels can leading to metabolic alkalosis, low fluid volume in the blood serum and urinary potassium loss.[] 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[]
