242 Possible Causes for Atrial Fibrillation, Exertional Dyspnea, Medication Noncompliance

  • Hypertension

    Social context, the struggle with uncertainty, and subjective risk as meaning-rich constructs for explaining HBP noncompliance.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] on exertion Angina pectoris Palpitations Nausea Disturbed vision Nervousness Anxiety Diaphoresis When hypertension is not detected by blood pressure control, it often is[flexikon.doccheck.com] atrial fibrillation.[doi.org]

  • Asthma

    A meta-analysis by DiMatteo et al [ 50 ] revealed that patients with a chronic disease and depression were three times more likely to be noncompliant with medical treatment[doi.org] A 62-year-old man with asthma presented with a 1-month history of wheezing and exertional dyspnea.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] A 47-year-old woman with a 6-month medical history of "asthma" presented to our hospital with a 1-month history or dyspnea on exertion.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Heart Failure

    Pathophysiology – Congestive Heart Failure - Diastolic Diastolic dysfunction occurs when the left ventricular myocardium is noncompliant and not able to accept blood return[healio.com] Here we present an 80-year-old Asian woman complaining of progressive exertional dyspnea.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] failure with reduced ejection fraction; however, the efficacy of these drugs in patients with concomitant atrial fibrillation is uncertain.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Pulmonary Edema

    ) Patient noncompliance with medications (eg, diuretics) Severe anemia Sepsis Thyrotoxicosis Myocarditis Myocardial toxins (eg, alcohol, cocaine, chemotherapeutic agents such[emedicine.com] High altitude pulmonary edema (HAPE) is a form of high altitude illness characterized by cough, dyspnea upon exertion progressing to dyspnea at rest and eventual death, seen[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Associated risk factors for the left ventricular dysfunction are a large Qp:Qs ratio, systemic hypertension, severe pulmonary hypertension and paroxysmal atrial fibrillation[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy

    Hypertrophy results in a stiff, noncompliant chamber (usually the left ventricle) that resists diastolic filling, elevating end-diastolic pressure and thus increasing pulmonary[merckmanuals.com] A 10-month female infant who experienced cough, fever, aggressive exertional dyspnea, and recurrent cyanosis was admitted to our hospital.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] BACKGROUND: Novel predictors of atrial fibrillation (AF) in hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) are desirable.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease

    noncompliance, cardiac ischemia, abnormal heart rhythms, kidney failure, pulmonary emboli, hypertension, and infections.[13] Treatment efforts are directed towards decreasing[en.wikipedia.org] According to the history of chronic cough and exertional dyspnea, he was treated with inhaled corticosteroids for COPD.[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]

  • Iron Deficiency Anemia

    Most merely are noncompliant with therapy.[emedicine.medscape.com] Treatment Transfusion should be considered for patients of any age with IDA complaining of symptoms such as fatigue or dyspnea on exertion.[aafp.org] Increased risk of atrial fibrillation in patients with coeliac disease: a nationwide cohort study. Eur. Heart J. 32, 2430–2437 (2011). 134. Patel, R. S., Johlin, F.[dx.doi.org]

  • Cor Pulmonale

    Acute Precipitating Factors Include (1) excessive Na intake, (2) noncompliance with heart failure medications, (3) acute MI (may be silent), (4) exacerbation of hypertension[accessmedicine.mhmedical.com] The patient developed progressive exertional dyspnea, with clinical and laboratory findings of right-sided heart failure and pulmonary hypertension.[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]

  • Atrial Flutter

    There will never be a S4 heart sound present during atrial flutter, as this heart sound is produced when atrial contraction forces blood into a noncompliant left ventricle[healio.com] The most encountered signs are fatigue, exertional dyspnea and general discomfort. However this intolerance is often mild. Certain forms are even asymptomatic.[fac.org.ar] fibrillation or atrial flutter.[nyulangone.org]

  • Pulmonary Embolism

    DOACs do not require monitoring, and noncompliance will not be readily apparent. Direct oral anticoagulants.[clevelandclinicmeded.com] Dyspnea may be absent or occur only with exertion. The onset of dyspnea may occur over seconds to days. Orthopnea occurs with PE as well as heart failure.[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]
