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.[] Thromboembolism, pneumonia, skin breakdown. Cardiac arrhythmia. Ileus. Aspiration pneumonia. Urinary retention. Psychiatric problems - eg, depression, anxiety.[] muscle action potentials reduced amplitude with relatively preserved conduction velocity implicates axonal neuropathy delayed/absent F waves implicates nerve root involvement[]

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

  • 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%)....[]

  • Inclusion Body Myositis

    CLEARWATER, Florida, USA - A United States veteran who was unable to walk for 5 years tries a new breakthrough treatment and is now able to stand and walk and is improving[] 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.[]

  • 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.[] 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[] An occasional complication, however, is regurgitation followed by aspiration of gastric contents, causing life-threatening aspiration pneumonia in resuscitated patients.[]

  • Epidural Hematoma

    Within 30 minutes she developed weakness in the right arm and leg and was unable to stand. Weakness then progressed to involve the left arm and leg.[] pneumonia (shortness of breath, pulmonary congestion, fever, productive cough), increased ICP Response to surgery: Stabilizations of vital signs, changes in neurological[] […] strength and movement, confusion or agitation, nausea and vomiting), CPP, ICP Signs of complications: Seizure activity, infection (fever, purulent discharge from any wounds), aspiration[]

    It's thought he can now move his arms and legs, although he's still unable to stand up, even with assistance.[] Pneumonia that accompanies aspiration is called aspiration pneumonia.[] A chest x-ray is typically performed in cases where any pneumonia is suspected, including aspiration pneumonia.[]

  • Progressive Supranuclear Palsy

    She was able to stand unsupported, but was unable to walk.[] Although aspiration pneumonia is the most common complication of progressive supranuclear palsy (PSP), the clinical impact of aspiration pneumonia on disease course and survival[] Qing fei tang could be useful for the prevention of recurrent aspiration pneumonia and bronchopneumonia in progressive supranuclear palsy.[]

  • Diffuse Scleroderma

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