335 Possible Causes for Atrial Fibrillation, Orthopnea

  • Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease

    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] Orthopnea and tidal expiratory flow limitation in patients with stable COPD. Chest 2001 ; 119 : 99 –104.[doi.org] Arrhythmias, including atrial fibrillation. Infection. Secondary polycythaemia. Depression.[patient.info]

  • Pulmonary Embolism

    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] 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[doi.org]

  • Mitral Valve Insufficiency

    Atrial fibrillation.[mayoclinic.org] Patients may be asymptomatic or may have manifestations like fatigue caused by reduced cardiac output, tachypnea or dyspnea, orthopnea, paroxysmal nocturnal dyspnea and hemoptysis[symptoma.com] […] acute MR are typically severely symptomatic and will have the signs and symptoms of acute decompensated congestive heart failure (i.e. shortness of breath, pulmonary edema, orthopnea[en.wikipedia.org]

  • Heart Failure

    […] failure with reduced ejection fraction; however, the efficacy of these drugs in patients with concomitant atrial fibrillation is uncertain.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Orthopnea may occur in any condition in which the vital capacity is low. Marked ascites, regardless of its etiology, is an important cause of orthopnea.[emedicine.medscape.com] Abstract In chronic heart failure (CHF), new-onset atrial fibrillation (AF) is associated with increased morbidity and mortality.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Pericarditis

    There were 9 deaths (10.7%), and the risk factors were: anemia, BNP and C reactive protein levels, pulmonary hypertension 55 mm Hg, and atrial fibrillation.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] There was no chest discomfort, orthopnea or paroxysmal nocturnal dyspnea. He did not have symptoms of cough, fever, foamy urine, or body weight loss.[casesjournal.biomedcentral.com] An electrocardiogram was significant for new-onset atrial fibrillation.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Mitral Valve Stenosis

    Abstract Chronic atrial fibrillation (AF) is associated with an increased frequency of embolic events and negative impact on cardiac function, and therefore, an increased[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] As the stenosis worsens, symptoms of orthopnea, paroxysmal nocturnal dyspnea or dyspnea on exertion develops.[symptoma.com] fibrillation.[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] The patient experienced orthopnea due to congestive heart failure and could not assume any other position.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] fibrillation (AF).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Aortic Valve Stenosis

    Anesthesia for patients with moderate aortic stenosis accompanied by atrial fibrillation during high-risk surgery such as liver transplantation remains a challenge in maintaining[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Other symptoms associated with AS are related to cardiac failure, such as paroxysmal nocturnal dyspnea, orthopnea, and dyspnea on exertion.[symptoma.com] The patient also presented dyspnea on minimal exertion, orthopnea, paroxysmal nocturnal dyspnea and edema of lower limbs. The patient denied fever.[web.archive.org]

  • Chronic Constrictive Pericarditis

    Dittrich HC, Pearce LA, Asinger RW, McBride R, Webel R et al. (1999) Left atrial diameter in nonvalvular atrial fibrillation: An echocardiographic study.[journals.plos.org] Topics Pericarditis Myocardial Infarction Heart failure Dyspnea Pericardiocentesis Virus Diseases Tachycardia Cardiac Tamponade Chest Pain Shock Pericardial body location Orthopnea[semanticscholar.org] Patients typically present with symptoms of both left and right sided heart failure including: dyspnea orthopnea easy fatigability hepatomegaly ascites Characterized by fibrous[radiopaedia.org]

  • Restrictive Cardiomyopathy

    Abstract A 44-year-old woman with restrictive cardiomyopathy showed right-sided dominant heart failure after conversion to sinus rhythm from paroxysmal atrial fibrillation[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Institute of Medical Sciences, Ansari Nagar, New Delhi-110029, India History: A 23 year old male presented with increasing dyspnea, abdominal distension, pedal edema and orthopnea[scmr.org] Radiofrequency ablation of atrial fibrillation and flutter has so far not been reported in myofibrillar myopathy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
