432 Possible Causes for Atrial Fibrillation, Cor Pulmonale, Hypoxia

  • Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease

    Presence of chronic hypoxia or cor pulmonale.[] The severity of COPD correlates with various arrhythmic manifestations such as atrial fibrillation, atrial flutter, and either sustained or nonsustained ventricular tachycardia[] Edema in cor pulmonale. Lancet 1975 ; ii: 1289 – 1290. Google Scholar 27 Richens JM Howard P. Oedema in cor pulmonale. Clin Sci 1982 ; 62: 255 – 259.[]

  • Cor Pulmonale

    The first cause of increased PVR is chronic long-standing alveolar hypoxia which induces pulmonary vascular remodeling.[] In a recent comprehensive review by Hecht 2 cardiac irregularities, particularly atrial fibrillation, are said to be "quite infrequent" in any type of cor pulmonale.[] […] lung diseases. [7] Cor Pulmonale Presentation The clinical manifestations of cor pulmonale may be nonspecific.[]

  • Sleep Apnea

    We here report the case of a 36-year-old man with severe OSAS who experienced the recurrence of stroke due to nocturnal hypoxia and a nocturnal BP surge measured by this trigger[] 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[]

  • Pulmonary Embolism

    Hypoxia is an independent predictor of both right ventricular dysfunction and 30-day mortality in these patients.[] 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[] 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[]

  • Obstructive Sleep Apnea

    Hypoxia damages multiple organ systems especially those with high oxygen utilization such as the central nervous system.[] 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[]

  • Central Sleep Apnea

    The improvement produced by oxygen may have been due to the fact that the patient had no demonstrable ventilatory response to hypoxia during wakefulness, and therefore may[] 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.[]

  • Multifocal Atrial Tachycardia

    Multifocal atrial tachycardia (MAT) is an ectopic atrial tachyarrhythmia most commonly observed in very ill, elderly patients with hypoxia due to chronic pulmonary or cardiac[] Because MAT closely resembles atrial fibrillation (AF), these echocardiographic data are compared with those from an age- and sex-matched population with AF.[] The only differences between these two groups were incidence of cor pulmonale, and right axis deviation, right bundle branch block, pulmonale P in electrocardiogram.[]

  • Acute Cor Pulmonale

    Hypercapnia, pneumonia, hypoxia, high plateau pressure, and positive end-expiratory pressure were associated with increased ACP incidence in patients with ARDS.[] Early or Delayed Cardioversion in Recent-Onset Atrial Fibrillation N.A.H.A. Pluymaekers et al.[] In most of the reported cases, a clinical picture of subacute cor pulmonale developed.[]

  • Ayerza Syndrome

    […] unspecified I27.21 Secondary pulmonary arterial hypertension I27.22 Pulmonary hypertension due to left heart disease I27.23 Pulmonary hypertension due to lung diseases and hypoxia[] Master the latest cryoablation procedures for adult patients (AVNRT cryoablation, WPW and septal pathways, atrial flutter, atrial fibrillation, balloon-based cryoablation,[] Ayerza syndrome - sclerosis of the pulmonary arteries in chronic cor pulmonale.[]

  • Right to Left Shunt

    Patent foramen ovale with right to left shunt as a cause of hypoxia without Eisenmengers physiology or with only moderately pulmonary artery pressures is an uncommon presentation[] […] septal defect following left atrial ablation for persistent atrial fibrillation in a patient with a Fontan circulation.[] A patient with advanced bronchiectasis, severe pulmonary hypertension complicated by cor pulmonale and a right-to-left shunt at atrial level presented for sigmoid colectomy[]
