2,978 Possible Causes for Aspiration Pneumonia, Compound Muscle Action Potential with Low Amplitude, Unable to Stand

  • Guillain-Barré Syndrome

    Patients may be unable to stand or walk despite reasonable strength, especially when ophthalmoparesis or impaired proprioception is present.[emedicine.medscape.com] 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]

  • 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]

  • Polymyositis

    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] Extra-muscular features include interstitial lung disease (30% of cases), aspiration pneumonia, and associated malignancy (polymyositis 9%, dermatomyositis 15%)....[oxfordmedicine.com]

  • Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation

    Most of the patients became so dizzy simply on standing that they were unable to walk. Others could walk, but only with a staggering gait.[web.archive.org] Due to the head being turned, the risk of vomiting and complications caused by aspiration pneumonia may be reduced.The American Heart Association's current guideline recommends[en.wikipedia.org] An occasional complication, however, is regurgitation followed by aspiration of gastric contents, causing life-threatening aspiration pneumonia in resuscitated patients.[merckmanuals.com]

    He finds it impossible to swallow solid foods and requires eating liquids or soft food and to sit upright or stand.[arthritis.co.za] Spontaneous pneumothorax can be associated with severe fibrosis and aspiration pneumonia can be from bad esophageal reflux.[doi.org] Esophageal dysfunction can lead to aspiration pneumonia. Pulmonary hypertension may develop, as can heart failure, both of which are poor prognostic findings.[merckmanuals.com]
