2,503 Possible Causes for Aspiration Pneumonia, Compound Muscle Action Potential with Low Amplitude, Deglutition Disorder

  • Guillain-Barré Syndrome

    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] GBS mortality, estimated at about 5 percent, results from respiratory distress syndrome, aspiration pneumonia, sepsis, pulmonary embolism, and arrhythmias [9].[journalofethics.ama-assn.org]

  • Dermatomyositis

    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] Aspiration pneumonia. Difficulty swallowing can also cause you to breathe food or liquids, including saliva, into your lungs (aspiration). Breathing problems.[mayoclinic.org]

  • Myasthenia Gravis

    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] Patients with pneumonia should be admitted because they often are taking immunosuppressant medications and are at a high risk for aspiration pneumonia.

  • Esophagitis

    ‘Complications seen in a hiatal hernia include aspiration pneumonia and peptic esophagitis with stricture.’[en.oxforddictionaries.com] Can be associated with weight loss, heartburn, regurgitation (especially with lying flat), and aspiration pneumonias.[online.epocrates.com]

  • Esophageal Obstruction

    Aspiration pneumonia occurred in zero and five patients, respectively, and tracheoesophageal fistula occurred in zero and two patients, respectively.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Chronic obstruction shows the same syndrome but with a gradual development and a tendency to develop aspiration pneumonia. Palpating an esophageal obstruction in a cow.[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com] Regurgitation caused by a diverticulum often occurs at night when lying down, which can lead to choking, aspiration pneumonia (a lung infection caused by pulmonary aspiration[my.clevelandclinic.org]

  • Diffuse Scleroderma

    Spontaneous pneumothorax can be associated with severe fibrosis and aspiration pneumonia can be from bad esophageal reflux.[doi.org] As a consequence of the reflux, aspiration, and aspiration pneumonia may occur, and are characterized by a morning cough or cough when lying flat.[arthritis.co.za] Esophageal dysfunction can lead to aspiration pneumonia. Pulmonary hypertension may develop, as can heart failure, both of which are poor prognostic findings.[merckmanuals.com]
