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

  • Guillain-Barré Syndrome

    She subsequently developed pandysautonomia that manifested as a tonically dilated pupil, gastrointestinal dysmotility, urinary retention, and profound orthostatic hypotension[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

    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. [17] Plasmapheresis[emedicine.medscape.com]

  • Acute Pandysautonomia

    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] Both of them showed orthostatic hypotension, fainting in upright position, pupillary disturbances, diminished sweating, anacidity, and impotence.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Neuropathy

    hypotension), which can make you feel faint or dizzy when standing up rapid heartbeat (tachycardia) excessive sweating or a lack of sweating problems with sexual function[nhs.uk] 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]

  • Lambert Eaton Myasthenic Syndrome

    hypotension.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] 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]

  • Autosomal Dominant Hereditary Sensory and Autonomic Neuropathy

    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] Current pharmacologic treatment for orthostatic hypotension. Clin Auton Res. 2008 Mar. 18 Suppl 1:14-8. [Medline]. Low PA. Autonomic neuropathies.[emedicine.medscape.com]

  • Acute Juvenile Hemorrhagic Cystitis

    Hypotension Orthostatic Proteinuria Osmotic Diuresis Ovarian Hyperstimulation Syndrome Oxalate Nephropathy Page Kidney Papillary Necrosis Papillorenal Syndrome (Renal-Coloboma[thekaiganfoundation.com] A high percentage of patients with IBM are affected ( 133 ), which leads to the risk for malnutrition and aspiration pneumonia.[frontiersin.org] - aspiration with granulomatous bronchiolitis and lipoid pneumonia Case 278: 62 year old man with anterior mediastinal mass - atypical carcinoid tumor of thymus Case 266:[pathologyoutlines.com]

  • Miller-Fisher Syndrome

    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] Thromboembolism, pneumonia , skin breakdown . Cardiac arrhythmia. Ileus. Aspiration pneumonia . Urinary retention . Psychiatric problems - eg, depression , anxiety .[patient.info]

  • Acquired Amyloid Myopathy

    hypotension Hypoactive pupils Hypohydrosis Bladder dysfunction Impotence Carpal tunnel syndrome in 25% Myopathy Systemic features Purpura: Periorbital Submandibular swelling[sinoemedicalassociation.org] Complications such as aspiration pneumonia become rather eminent. Several of these patients should be counseled regarding the insertion of a gastric feeding tube.[nature.com] Low compound muscle action potentials (CMAP) amplitudes may not necessarily indicate a neuropathic process, as it may reflect muscle atrophy and fibrosis.[journal.frontiersin.org]

  • Distal Hereditary Motor Neuropathy Type 1

    The general physical examination can provide evidence of orthostatic hypotension without a compensatory rise in heart rate when autonomic fibers are involved.[aafp.org] Laryngeal dysfunction with aspiration pneumonia.[patient.info] Compound muscle action potentials are either absent or low amplitude with motor conduction velocities ranging from 3 to 10 meters per second.[academlib.com]
