141 Possible Causes for Ammonia Increased, Respiratory Alkalosis

  • Urea Cycle Disorder

    […] distress * Respiratory alkalosis * Increased blood ammonia level * Failure to thrive * Constant infant crying * Agitation * Hyperactive behavior * Self-injury * Screaming[] A 10- or 25-µmol/l increase in ammonia exposure increased the relative risk of a hyperammonemic crisis by 50 and 200% (P 0.0001), respectively.[] Soon after, seizures, hypotonia (poor muscle tone, floppiness), respiratory distress (respiratory alkalosis), and coma may occur.[]

  • Propionic Acidemia

    The objective of this study was to determine whether N-carbamylglutamate (NCG) reduces plasma levels of ammonia and glutamine and increases the rate of ureagenesis in patients[] Alkalosis Urea cycle disorders Metabolic Profiles Organic and Amino Acid Disorders Metabolic Profiles Organic and Amino Acid Disorders Newborn screening is available dependent[] […] chain disorder Ammonia: Lactate Acidosis Ketones: Absent or inappropriately low Fatty acid oxidation defects Acidosis: Absent Respiratory Alkalosis Urea cycle disorders Newborn[]

  • Hyperornithinemia-Hyperammonemia-Homocitrullinuria Syndrome

    Blood ammonia increased from high normal values to 975, 990, and 750 mumol/liter (normal less than 70) and urinary orotic acid from trace to 539, 494, and 1296 mumol/mmol[] The neonatal presentation usually begins a few days after birth with lethargy, somnolence, refusal to feed, vomiting, tachypnea with respiratory alkalosis, and/or seizures[] While ammonia in plasma was not increased the supply of citrulline or arginine led to a reduction of plasma glutamine compared to ornithine supplement or to no supplement[]

  • Carbamoyl Phosphate Synthetase Deficiency

    They may rapidly progress to respiratory alkalosis as ammonia increases with cerebral edema, seizures, loss of reflexes, hypothermia, apnea, and coma.[] Initial laboratory findings will include respiratory alkalosis which is the earliest objective indication of encephalopathy.[] alkalosis 0001950 Vomiting Throwing up 0002013 Showing of 21 Last updated: 11/1/2018 Making a diagnosis for a genetic or rare disease can often be challenging.[]

  • Hyporeninemic Hypoaldosteronism

    […] that renal ammonia production increased.[] A patient with progressive renal failure due to multiple myeloma presented with a mixed acid-base disorder (non-anion gap acidosis and respiratory alkalosis) with persistent[] alkalosis) with persistent severe hyperkalemia.[]

  • Respiratory Alkalosis

    alkalosis are as follows: [4] Palpitation Tetany Convulsion Sweating Causes [ edit ] Respiratory alkalosis may be produced as a result of the following causes: Mechanism[] In renal mechanism, there is decreased H -Na exchange, decreased excretion of acid and ammonia, increased excretion of HCO 3 – and K , retention of CI – . 5.[] A) Excretion of bicarbonate B) Increased production of ammonia C) Secretion of H into renal tubular fluid C,B[]

  • Isovaleric Acidemia

    Routine laboratory evaluation revealed an anion gap metabolic acidosis (anion gap of 23) and respiratory alkalosis, in the absence of a potential bicarbonate (pH, 7.31; [PCO.sub[] […] intracranial pressure attention to “sweaty foot” body odor Labs Blood – venous blood gas for blood pH – electrolytes, measured CO2, glucose – blood ammonia (**draw WITHOUT[] , Lactic ) - Alkalosis ( Metabolic , Respiratory ) - Mixed disorder of acid-base balance - H 2 O Dehydration / Hypervolemia - K Hypokalemia / Hyperkalemia - Cl Hyperchloremia[]

  • Laxative Abuse

    The HCO3 is beyond the lower limit (of 18mmol/l) for a simple respiratory alkalosis with metabolic compensation. Clues : The anion gap is normal.[] The diagnosis of classical renal tubular acidosis, Type I, was confirmed by our inability to decrease urinary pH beyond 5.5 and to increase ammonia excretion during an ammonium[] No evidence of metabolic alkalosis.[]

  • Hyperammonemia Type 3

    As has been indicated above, the central nervous system is most sensitive to increased concentrations of ammonia.[] Findings: Serum ammonia 510 µmol/L Respiratory alkalosis Elevated urinary orotic acid Outcome: Anterograde and retrograde amnesia.[] Ammonia levels may be factitiously increased if the tourniquet is too tight for a long period.[]

  • Hypokalemia

    ammonia production, increased bicarbonate reabsorption, altered sodium reabsorption, hypokalemic nephropathy and elevated blood pressure. 5 Hyperkalemia Hyperkalemia results[] References [1] Flemma, RJ and Young, WG Jr: The Metabolic effects of mechanical ventilation and respiratory alkalosis in postoperative patients.
