352 Possible Causes for Atrial Fibrillation, Cor Pulmonale, Exertional Dyspnea

  • Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease

    According to the history of chronic cough and exertional dyspnea, he was treated with inhaled corticosteroids for COPD.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The severity of COPD correlates with various arrhythmic manifestations such as atrial fibrillation, atrial flutter, and either sustained or nonsustained ventricular tachycardia[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Edema in cor pulmonale.

Orthopnea occurs with PE as well as heart failure.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Six ECG findings (heart rate 100 beats/min, S1Q3T3, complete RBBB, inverted T waves in V1-V4, ST elevation in aVR, and atrial fibrillation) had likelihood and ORs with lower-limit[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] pulmonale in contrast to the well known cor pulmonale of chronic nature associated with progressive enlargement of the right side of the heart secondary to certain pulmonary[doi.org]
