145 Possible Causes for Atrial Fibrillation, Cor Pulmonale, Somnolence

  • Sleep Apnea

    In epilepsy patients with risk factors (eg, obesity) or markers (eg, habitual snoring, daytime somnolence) for sleep apnea, a careful sleep history should be elicited and[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

    Neither patient exhibited daytime somnolence, although both were subsequently found to have severe obstructive sleep apnea.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] OSA may play a role in the initiation and worsening of atrial fibrillation (AF).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] References: [14] [15] Complications Hypertension Hypoxia -induced cardiac arrhythmia Pulmonary hypertension and cor pulmonale Global respiratory insufficiency Cardiac infarction[amboss.com]

  • Central Sleep Apnea

    Patients with hypercapnic forms may experience daytime somnolence (sometimes called wake-time sleepiness), lethargy, and morning headache.[merckmanuals.com] 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]

  • Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease

    Patients with exacerbations accompanied by retention of carbon dioxide may be lethargic or somnolent, a very different appearance.[merckmanuals.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.

  • Morbid Obesity

    This can be spectacularly effective in relieving right heart failure, day-time somnolence, and pulmonary hypertension.[academic.oup.com] fibrillation in these patients.[revespcardiol.org] Arterial oxygen tension is lower and chronic hypoxemia may lead to pulmonary hypertension and cor pulmonale.[openanesthesia.org]

  • Asthma

    With advanced hypercarbia, bradypnea, somnolence, and profuse diaphoresis may be present; almost no breath sounds may be heard; and the patient is willing to lie recumbent[emedicine.medscape.com]

  • Hypercapnia

    A 38-year-old patient with effort dyspnea, somnolence, cianosis and cor pulmonale is presented.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] METHODS: Consecutive patients undergoing catheter ablation for atrial fibrillation (AF) or ventricular tachycardia (VT) received continuous TCO(2) monitoring.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] These include Altered mental status (agitation, somnolence) Peripheral or central cyanosis or decreased oxygen saturation on pulse oximetry Manifestations of a "stress response[mcgill.ca]

  • Cor Pulmonale

    De-compensatory stage of the respiratory and cardiac function Respiratory failure Symptoms : severe dyspnea,especially at night, headache, insomnia,inappetence, somnolence[slideshare.net] 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.
