189 Possible Causes for Atrial Fibrillation, Cor Pulmonale, Respiratory Acidosis

  • Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease

    Eventually, hypercapnia and respiratory acidosis develop, leading to pulmonary artery vasoconstriction and cor pulmonale.[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. Lancet 1975 ; ii: 1289 – 1290. Google Scholar 27 Richens JM Howard P. Oedema in cor pulmonale. Clin Sci 1982 ; 62: 255 – 259.[doi.org]

  • Sleep Apnea

    Slight respiratory acidosis was observed in 50% of the patients.[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] 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[phaonlineuniv.org]

  • Obstructive Sleep Apnea

  • Central Sleep Apnea

    acidosis.[en.wikipedia.org] We previously described an association between atrial fibrillation and central sleep apnea in a group of patients with congestive heart failure.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] This can lead to cor pulmonale (right-sided heart failure). Call your provider if you have symptoms of this disorder.[nlm.nih.gov]

  • Cor Pulmonale

    […] restrictive defect were responsible for the development of chronic respiratory acidosis and cor pulmonale.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] 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.[nejm.org] […] lung diseases.

  • Hypercapnia

    respiratory acidosis: Change in pH 0.03 X ((40 Pa CO 2 )/10) Respiratory acidosis does not have a great effect on electrolyte levels.[en.wikipedia.org] METHODS: Consecutive patients undergoing catheter ablation for atrial fibrillation (AF) or ventricular tachycardia (VT) received continuous TCO(2) monitoring.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] A 38-year-old patient with effort dyspnea, somnolence, cianosis and cor pulmonale is presented.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Congestive Heart Failure

    A 63-year-old woman with atrial fibrillation visited our hospital due to decompensated heart failure.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Heart Failure and Cor Pulmonale Sections: Heart Failure, Cor Pulmonale, Further Readings. Topics Discussed: heart diseases.[web.archive.org] pulmonale; Cardiomyopathy - heart failure; HF Allen LA and Stevenson LW.[medlineplus.gov]

  • Asthma
