93 Possible Causes for Atrial Fibrillation, Cognitive Defect, Cor Pulmonale

  • Sleep Apnea

    The severity of COPD correlates with various arrhythmic manifestations such as atrial fibrillation, atrial flutter, and either sustained or nonsustained ventricular tachycardia[] Vol 8, No 3 (Autumn 2009) Introduction Cor pulmonale has a well-described association with chronic respiratory diseases such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD[] Arrhythmias Cardiac arrhythmias, especially tachy-brady syndrome, ventricular ectopy, and atrial fibrillation are commonly identified in patients with OSA. [11,12,13] The[]

  • Obstructive Sleep Apnea

    OSA may play a role in the initiation and worsening of atrial fibrillation (AF).[] References: [14] [15] Complications Hypertension Hypoxia -induced cardiac arrhythmia Pulmonary hypertension and cor pulmonale Global respiratory insufficiency Cardiac infarction[] Accumulating data implicate obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) as a predisposing factor to the development of atrial fibrillation (AF), the latter representing the most common[]

  • Central Sleep Apnea

    We previously described an association between atrial fibrillation and central sleep apnea in a group of patients with congestive heart failure.[] This can lead to cor pulmonale (right-sided heart failure). Call your provider if you have symptoms of this disorder.[] Pulmonale), and hypoventilation (see Underventilation ).[]

  • Hypercapnia

    METHODS: Consecutive patients undergoing catheter ablation for atrial fibrillation (AF) or ventricular tachycardia (VT) received continuous TCO(2) monitoring.[] A 38-year-old patient with effort dyspnea, somnolence, cianosis and cor pulmonale is presented.[] Multivariate analyses included age, gender, body mass index, clinical background (i.e. coronary artery disease, hypertension, valvular heart disease, atrial fibrillation,[]

  • Apathetic Thyrotoxicosis with Thyrotoxic Crisis

    Thyrotoxic atrial fibrillation MedGenMed 2005;4:7(1):74. 24. Bar-Sela S, Ehrenfeld M, Eliakim M. Arterial embolism in thyrotoxicosis with atrial fibrillation.[] pulmonale); or other diseases that precipitated thyroid storm (pneumonia).[] Cardiovascular symptoms, atrial fibrillation, and congestive heart failure were common. They typically had evidence of a moderately severe proximal myopathy.[]

  • Thyroid Crisis

    The patient was a 59-year-old Chinese woman who presented with evidence of heart failure and atrial fibrillation.[] pulmonale); or other diseases that precipitated thyroid storm (pneumonia).[] She had congestive heart failure, rapid atrial fibrillation, and disseminated intravascular coagulation on admission.[]

  • Cerebral Thrombosis

    There are two atria, one on the right side of the heart and one on the left. atrial fibrillation Atrial fibrillation is a disorder of heart rate and rhythm.[] Pulmonary embolism with acute cor pulmonale was suspected because of low end-tidal PCO2 (PETCO2).[] fibrillation) Those who have a tendency to develop blood clots are more likely to suffer a stroke.[]

  • Acidosis

    His other comorbidities included atrial fibrillation, ischaemic heart disease and depression.[] Severe pectus excavatum associated with cor pulmonale and chronic respiratory acidosis in a young woman. Chest . Jun 2001;119(6):1957-61. [Medline]. Wiseman AC.[] fibrillation.[]

  • Hypoxia

    Sleep apnea-hypopnea syndrome (SAHS) is one of the extracardiac reasons of atrial fibrillation (AF), and the prevalence of AF is high in SAHS-diagnosed patients.[] Chronic alveolar hypoxia is the main factor leading to development of cor pulmonale--right ventricular hypertrophy with or without overt right ventricular failure--in patients[] fibrillation (AF) early after depolarization (EAD) hypoxia reoxygenation resting membrane potential (RMP) Abbreviations: AF, atrial fibrillation; AP, action potential; APA[]

  • Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome

    A 59-year-old male with history of hypertension and atrial fibrillation presented with one day of progressive shortness of breath.[] Acute cor pulmonale is common in severe ARDS. ARDS itself and some treatments could worsen acute cor pulmonale.[] Current and new oral antithrombotics in non-valvular atrial fibrillation: a network meta-analysis of 79 808 patients .
