478 Possible Causes for Atrial Fibrillation, Cor Pulmonale, Sudden Death

  • Cor Pulmonale

    In the United States, approximately 25,000 sudden deaths occur per year from heart failure associated with pulmonary emboli.[nursing.unboundmedicine.com] 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. [7] Cor Pulmonale Presentation The clinical manifestations of cor pulmonale may be nonspecific.[emedicine.medscape.com]

  • Pulmonary Embolism

    METHODS: We present an unusual case of sudden death owing to acute pulmonary embolism after undergoing total extraperitoneal inguinal hernia repair.[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]

  • Obstructive Sleep Apnea

    If there's underlying heart disease, these repeated multiple episodes of low blood oxygen could lead to sudden death from a cardiac event.[mayoclinic.org] 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

    It is necessary to consider the possibility of sudden death when nasal BiPAP therapy is given to a PPH patient with central sleep apnea.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] 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]

  • Eisenmenger Syndrome

    There were 21 (13%) documented deaths, of which 8 (5%) were sudden death.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] thrombocytopenia, and immune dysfunction Prognosis age of onset depends on type and severity of defect can present as early as childhood death can result from decompensated cor[medbullets.com] The reversal of the shunt leads to cyanosis, as well as shortness of breath, coughing up blood, reduced exercise tolerance, syncope (fainting), palpitations, and atrial fibrillation[rjmatthewsmd.com]

  • Cardiomyopathy

    A thorough family history of juvenile sudden death, ventricular arrhythmias and ICD implants should always be sought.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] KEYWORDS: Atrial fibrillation; Exercise-induced atrial cardiomyopathy; Genes; Mechanosensitive ion channels[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] ., cystic fibrosis, cor pulmonale, or pulmonary hypertension) 13.Ischemic coronary vascular disease 14.Association with drugs (e.g., growth hormone, corticosteroids, cocaine[clinicaltrials.gov]

  • Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease

    (including sudden death) and all-cause mortality.[doi.org] 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.

  • Right Bundle Branch Block

    A 37-year-old man with Brugada syndrome and dynamic changes of the ST-segment morphology observed after an episode of aborted sudden death is described.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Changing axis deviation has been reported also during atrial fibrillation or atrial flutter.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] He was diagnosed with a proximal bilateral acute pulmonary embolism without acute cor pulmonale.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Myocardial Infarction

    The primary outcome was the composite of sudden death or death from ventricular tachyarrhythmia at 90 days (arrhythmic death).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Diagnoses of congestive heart failure and atrial fibrillation were made. He was electrically cardioverted to normal sinus rhythm.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] QS complexes in the absence of MI Pre-excitation, obstructive or dialated cardiomyopathy, LBBB, left anterior hemiblock, left and right ventricular hypertrophy and acute cor[dx.doi.org]
