249 Possible Causes for Atrial Fibrillation, Cor Pulmonale, Polycythemia

  • Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease

    This V/Q mismatch results in rapid circulation in a poorly ventilated lung, leading to hypoxemia and polycythemia.[emedicine.com] 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.

  • Atrial Septal Defect
