2,605 Possible Causes for Aspiration Pneumonia, Compound Muscle Action Potential with Low Amplitude, Creatine Phosphokinase Increased

  • Dermatomyositis

    Elevated creatine phosphokinase increases the suspicion of an inflammatory muscle disease, and muscle biopsy is the definitive diagnostic tool for inflammatory myopathies.[rc.rcjournal.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]

  • Stroke

    pneumonia, pressure ulcers, etc.).[radiopaedia.org] Interestingly, creatine phosphokinase increased after l-carnitine was stopped, indicating that l-carnitine had helped to reduce muscle damage during rehabilitation.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Swallowing difficulties can result in reduced fluid and food intake, and cause aspiration, which can lead to aspiration pneumonia, undernutrition and dehydration [ 5 ].[patient.info]

  • Cerebral Thrombosis

    This context may facilitate aspiration pneumonia or ICP elevation. Control of seizure episodes frequently required drug associations.[annalsofintensivecare.springeropen.com] This may lead to aspiration pneumonia, another common cause of death shortly after a stroke.[minddisorders.com]

  • Status Epilepticus

    pneumonia, and longer time on the ventilator.[emcrit.org] phosphokinase, and increased serum triglycerides are markers of propofol infusion syndrome and should be monitored carefully.[bcmj.org] Pneumonia attributed by the investigators to aspiration occurred in 51% of the patients in the hypothermia group and in 45% of the patients in the control group.[nejm.org]

  • Inclusion Body Myositis

    phosphokinase (CPK) and inflammatory cell infiltration.[emedicine.medscape.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]

  • Generalized Motor Seizure

    pneumonia Neurogenic pulmonary edema Cardiac arrhythmias Sudden death Mortality rates for seizures are low, but, amongst the epilepsies, rates for tonic-clonic seizures are[emedicine.medscape.com] Potential complications of generalized tonic-clonic seizures include the following: Head trauma and trauma to the tongue, lips, and cheeks Vertebral compression fractures Aspiration[emedicine.medscape.com]

  • Becker Muscular Dystrophy

    High serum creatine kinase Increased CPK Increased creatine kinase Increased creatine phosphokinase Increased serum CK Increased serum creatine kinase Increased serum creatine[rarediseases.info.nih.gov] , atelectasis or collapse of major lung segments, postoperative pneumonia, congestive heart failure, and cardiac arrhythmias.[pediatrics.aappublications.org] Background The dystrophinopathies include a spectrum of muscle diseases The mild end of the spectrum includes asymptomatic increases in serum concentration of creatine phosphokinase[bcidaho.com]

  • Polymyositis

    There was increased proximal muscle strength and reduction in the creatine phosphokinase level.[rheumatology.oxfordjournals.org] As the patients were at high risk of "aspiration pneumonia", tracheostomy and PEG tubes were placed.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Pulmonary involvement in polymyositis includes respiratory muscle weakness, aspiration pneumonia, interstitial lung disease, infection and drug-induced pneumonia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis

    Antisialorrhea agents Sialorrhea, or drooling, is embarrassing and is associated with aspiration pneumonia. The prevalence for patients with ALS is 50%.[emedicine.com] Serious complications arise when the disease affects the swallowing muscles which can lead to aspiration pneumonia or when it affects the respiratory muscles.[med.unc.edu] Food or saliva can be inhaled (aspirated) into the lungs, increasing the risk of pneumonia (called aspiration pneumonia ).[merckmanuals.com]

  • Tetanus

    , a lung infection, that develops by breathing in foreign materials (aspiration pneumonia) Breathing difficulty, possibly leading to death (10-20% of cases are fatal) Top[web.archive.org] Increasing serum creatinine was temporally associated with rising creatine phosphokinase (CPK) and striking elevations of plasma myoglobin.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Respiratory failure 6(85.7%), and aspiration pneumonia 1(14.3%) were causes of death. Conclusion: In this study, case fatality rate was high.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
