14 Possible Causes for Aspiration Pneumonia, Asthenia, Compound Muscle Action Potential with Low Amplitude

  • Guillain-Barré Syndrome

    VAERS ID76585 Vaccination Date: 1995 -06-08 Age40.6 YF Symptoms: AMBLYOPIA ASTHENIA FEVER GUILLAIN BARRE SYND PARALYSIS PARESTHESIA VISION ABNORM VOMIT pt recv vax 8JUN95[whale.to] Thromboembolism, pneumonia, skin breakdown. Cardiac arrhythmia. Ileus. Aspiration pneumonia. Urinary retention. Psychiatric problems - eg, depression, anxiety.[patient.info] muscle action potentials reduced amplitude with relatively preserved conduction velocity implicates axonal neuropathy delayed/absent F waves implicates nerve root involvement[step2.medbullets.com]

  • Dermatomyositis

    Patients with malignancy, cardiac problems, asthenia-anorexia or pulmonary interstitial fibrosis are also at risk for this poor prognosis.[symptoma.com] Pulmonary manifestations range from aspiration pneumonia to interstitial lung disease (ILD), sometimes with complications such as pulmonary arterial hypertension (see these[orpha.net] Low compound muscle action potentials (CMAP) amplitudes may not necessarily indicate a neuropathic process, as it may reflect muscle atrophy and fibrosis.[doi.org]

  • Myasthenia Gravis

    Introduction The term myasthenia gravis (MG) is derived from the Greek terms my, asthenia, and gravis, which mean muscle, weakness, and severe, respectively.[intechopen.com] Complications Aspiration pneumonia due to throat muscle weakness. Acute respiratory failure during an exacerbation.[patient.info] Distinguishing features of the RNS test in LEMS and MG are confirmed in this direct comparison study: the low compound muscle action potential amplitude, decrement at LRS,[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Inclusion Body Myositis

    She was exercising daily to increase muscle strength, despite an increased asthenia and difficulties in climbing and descending stairs, and she had some problems in swallowing[karger.com] The incidence of dysphagia, rate of aspirations, rate of aspiration pneumonias and treatment results of dysphagia were analyzed.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] However, the low compound muscle action potential amplitudes could be explained by the loss of excitable muscle tissue that occurs in myopathies.[jamanetwork.com]

  • Lambert Eaton Myasthenic Syndrome

    Approximately 2 months after the operation, he had aspiration pneumonia with respiratory failure.[jmedicalcasereports.biomedcentral.com] Distinguishing features of the RNS test in LEMS and MG are confirmed in this direct comparison study: the low compound muscle action potential amplitude, decrement at LRS,[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] amplitude compound muscle action potential (CMAP), a decremental response to low rate stimulation, and an incremental response to high rate stimulation or after brief exercise[orpha.net]

  • Food-Borne Botulism

    Results: A 36 years-old patient “A”, a 49 years-old patient “B” and a 17 years-old patient “C” have abdominal pain, vomiting, difficulty swallowing and speaking, dyspnea, asthenia[jle.com] A higher chance of acquiring aspiration pneumonia, respiratory distress, long-lasting weakness, and nervous system problems for up to a year following the illness is common[microbewiki.kenyon.edu] Electrophysiologic tests of such patients show reduced compound muscle action potentials (CMAPs), low amplitudes and short durations of motor unit potentials (MUPs), and mild[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Neuropathy

    […] amitriptyline but less sedating Desipramine 10-300 mg Similar to amitriptyline but least sedating Duloxetine 60-120 mg Nausea, dry mouth, constipation Venlafaxine XR 37.5-225 mg Asthenia[clevelandclinicmeded.com] Compounding the problem of aspiration pneumonias and chronic lung disease is the presence of relative insensitivity to hypoxemia [ 23 - 26 ], which limits ability to cope[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Patients have relatively normal nerve conduction velocities but low amplitude sensory nerve action potentials and compound muscle action potentials.[merckmanuals.com]

  • Neuromuscular Junction Disorder

    In NMJD breathiness and asthenia are frequently present with variable degree and fluctuating pattern during the day.[medcraveonline.com] Aspiration pneumonia is clearly an undesirable outcome in someone with already compromised respiratory function.[jnnp.bmj.com] EMNG showed signs of myopathy and low compound muscle action potential (CMAP) amplitude (0,15 mV) on lower extremities. Muscle and nerve biopsy were normal.[neurology.org]

  • Acute Pandysautonomia

    […] amitriptyline but less sedating Desipramine 10-300 mg Similar to amitriptyline but least sedating Duloxetine 60-120 mg Nausea, dry mouth, constipation Venlafaxine XR 37.5-225 mg Asthenia[clevelandclinicmeded.com] The patients are at risk for sustaining injury during falls and developing urinary tract infection or aspiration pneumonia.[clinicalsciences.wordpress.com] In cases of suspected neuromuscular transmission defect, such as with botulism or LEMS, a typical electrophysiologic pattern of low-amplitude compound muscle action potentials[ihpotblogspot.blogspot.com]

  • Autosomal Dominant Hereditary Sensory and Autonomic Neuropathy

    […] amitriptyline but less sedating Desipramine 10-300 mg Similar to amitriptyline but least sedating Duloxetine 60-120 mg Nausea, dry mouth, constipation Venlafaxine XR 37.5-225 mg Asthenia[clevelandclinicmeded.com] Compounding the problem of aspiration pneumonias and chronic lung disease is the presence of relative insensitivity to hypoxemia [ 23 – 26 ], which limits ability to cope[ojrd.biomedcentral.com] Patients have relatively normal nerve conduction velocities but low amplitude sensory nerve action potentials and compound muscle action potentials.[merckmanuals.com]
