2,977 Possible Causes for Aspiration Pneumonia, Blepharoptosis, Compound Muscle Action Potential with Low Amplitude

  • Guillain-Barré Syndrome

    RESULTS: A 41-year-old man presented with aggressive speech difficulty, dysphagia, right blepharoptosis, and quadriplegia following coma.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] 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]

  • Myasthenia Gravis

    Blepharoptosis surgery: In some cases, medication or other therapies may not be effective for treating ptosis.[eyehealthweb.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]

  • Oculopharyngeal Muscular Dystrophy

    Progressive, usually symmetrical blepharoptosis, with or without dysphagia, appears during middle age. Muscular weakness in the limbs can be noted in some patients.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] of OPMD-related deaths are attributed to aspiration pneumonia.[symptoma.com] PURPOSE: To clinically characterize blepharoptosis in Hispanic New Mexicans with oculopharyngeal muscular dystrophy and examine eyelid surgery outcomes.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Subdural Hematoma

    The usual mechanism that produces an acute subdural hematoma is a high-speed impact to the skull. This causes brain tissue to accelerate or decelerate relative to the fixed dural structures, tearing blood vessels. Often, the torn blood vessel is a vein that connects the cortical surface of the brain to a dural[…][emedicine.medscape.com]

  • Syringomyelia

    Respiratory problems such as aspiration or pneumonia, skin breakdown, infections in the bladder and impaction of the bowels are just a few others.[spinalcordinjury-paralysis.org]

  • Multiple Sclerosis

    Dysphagia management is collaborative and can enhance nutrition and hydration goals as well as reduce the risk of aspiration pneumonia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Aspiration pneumonia (resulting from the food particles and/or liquids passing into the lungs) can also make breathing more difficult.[web.archive.org] Few studies reported deaths in the cannabinoid-treated groups (1 due to pneumonia, 13 1 to seizure-related aspiration pneumonia, and 2 to cancer, presumed unrelated 16 ).[n.neurology.org]

  • Craniopharyngioma

    OBJECTIVE: A retrospective review of the surgical outcome for patients with craniopharyngioma (CP) treated in a single neurosurgical center with surgical resection using visualization to ensure hypothalamic preservation. METHODS: The study included 1054 patients. Before 2003, a pterional cranial approach was[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • 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]

  • Rabies

    As the neurologic phase of rabies advances, chest radiographs might reveal infiltrates due to aspiration, acute respiratory distress syndrome, nosocomial pneumonia, or congestive[symptoma.com] Motor nerve conduction studies showed decreased conduction with dispersion of compound muscle action potential, low amplitude with prolonged distal latency and decreased nerve[neurologyindia.com]

  • Miller-Fisher Syndrome

    Bilateral ophthalmoplegia, blepharoptosis, areflexia, and ataxic gait were noted.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The immediate cause of death was considered to be aspiration pneumonia.[academic.oup.com] CBs resolved, distal compound muscle action potential (CMAP) amplitudes increased and SNAPs normalized on subsequent testing.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
