3,015 Possible Causes for Aspiration Pneumonia, Compound Muscle Action Potential with Low Amplitude, Secondary Cardiomyopathy

  • Dermatomyositis

    […] due to dermatomyositis Dilated cardiomyopathy secondary to dermatomyositis Disorder of respiratory system due to dermatomyositis Juvenile dermatomyositis Juvenile dermatomyositis[] Pulmonary manifestations range from aspiration pneumonia to interstitial lung disease (ILD), sometimes with complications such as pulmonary arterial hypertension (see these[] Low compound muscle action potentials (CMAP) amplitudes may not necessarily indicate a neuropathic process, as it may reflect muscle atrophy and fibrosis.[]

  • Myasthenia Gravis

    Complications Aspiration pneumonia due to throat muscle weakness. Acute respiratory failure during an exacerbation.[] 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,[] Patients with pneumonia should be admitted because they often are taking immunosuppressant medications and are at a high risk for aspiration pneumonia. [17] Plasmapheresis[]

  • Chronic Alcoholism

    CV – Hypertension, Dilated cardiomyopathy PULMONARY – none directly, but pts often develop pneumonia including aspiration. Also, suspect Klebsiella as a pathogen.[] Aspiration of respiratory tract bacteria (eg, MCS bronchoalveolar lavage) especially Streptococcus pneumoniae and Klebsiella pneumoniae .[] pneumonia.)[]

  • Diffuse Scleroderma

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

  • Polymyositis

    As the patients were at high risk of "aspiration pneumonia", tracheostomy and PEG tubes were placed.[] Pulmonary involvement in polymyositis includes respiratory muscle weakness, aspiration pneumonia, interstitial lung disease, infection and drug-induced pneumonia.[] Extra-muscular features include interstitial lung disease (30% of cases), aspiration pneumonia, and associated malignancy (polymyositis 9%, dermatomyositis 15%)....[]

  • Stroke

    Cirrhotic cardiomyopathy without gastrointestinal symptoms has also been found in pediatric patients[ 124 ].[] pneumonia, pressure ulcers, etc.).[] Swallowing difficulties can result in reduced fluid and food intake, and cause aspiration, which can lead to aspiration pneumonia, undernutrition and dehydration [ 5 ].[]

  • Pneumonia

    Few cases report patients with heart failure, secondary to dilated cardiomyopathy, with high fever.[] Aspiration pneumonitis and aspiration pneumonia. N Engl J Med 2001;344:665-71.[] Aspiration pneumonia and pneumonitis Summary The two major aspiration syndromes are bacterial pneumonia and chemical pneumonitis.[]

  • Inclusion Body Myositis

    We report the case of a patient with biopsy-proven IBM who developed heart failure and major ventricular arrhythmias secondary to dilated cardiomyopathy few months after the[] The incidence of dysphagia, rate of aspirations, rate of aspiration pneumonias and treatment results of dysphagia were analyzed.[] However, the low compound muscle action potential amplitudes could be explained by the loss of excitable muscle tissue that occurs in myopathies.[]

  • Status Epilepticus

    Takotsubo cardiomyopathy secondary to seizures. Can J Neurol Sci. 2007;34:105-7. 52. Stöllberger C, Wegner C, Finsterer J. Seizure-associated Takotsubo cardiomyopathy.[] pneumonia, and longer time on the ventilator.[] 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.[]

  • Fabry Disease

    Conduction defects such as VT that occur in these patients may be secondary to cardiomyopathies.[] The proband died due to aspiration pneumonia before receiving enzyme replacement therapy.[] […] to a storage or other metabolic disease, cataract associated with a metabolic disease, metabolic disease with corneal opacity, lysosomal disease with restrictive cardiomyopathy[]
