139 Possible Causes for Bicarbonate Decreased, Hypothermia, Potassium Decreased

  • Acute Alcohol Intoxication

    […] in serum bicarbonate concentration.[] The loss of electrolytes such as phosphate, potassium and magnesium can result in cardiac dysrhythmia.[] 2014 at 3:41 pm Jake Anderson (credit: CBS) MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – The 19-year-old University of Minnesota student found dead near the Stone Arch Bridge in December died of hypothermia[]

  • Hyponatremia

    15% to 20%, hyperchloremic acidosis, decreased serum bicarbonate level, potassium abnormalities (type dependent) Correct acidosis, sodium bicarbonate Salt-wasting nephropathies[] Swollen brain cells react to hyponatremic conditions by decreasing their volume over approximately 48 h by the extrusion of potassium, sodium, chloride, and organic osmolytes[] However, he returned with hypothermia, hyponatremia, and status epilepticus resulting in intubation.[]

  • Diabetes Mellitus

    Bicarbonate therapy The use of bicarbonate in DKA is controversial ( 62 ) because most experts believe that during the treatment, as ketone bodies decrease there will be adequate[] Insulin therapy, correction of acidosis, and volume expansion decrease serum potassium concentration.[] Severe hypothermia, if present, is a poor prognostic sign ( 33 ).[]

  • Diabetic Ketotic Coma

    Indeed this is much higher then expected given the relatively modest decrease in bicarbonate.[] Blood sugar will also decrease. Fluids and potassium will be given through a vein ( intravenously ). This must be done carefully.[] .), impaired mentation, hypothermia Etiology – DKA is due to loss of insulin, which directly causes hyperglycemia and high ketone bodies Note: insulin does not directly cause[]

  • Cystinosis

    Acidosis-affected patients are often administered with sodium citrate and supplements of phosphorus as well as potassium.[] Wernicke's syndrome; Wernicke–Korsakoff syndrome; Wernicke's encephalopathy brainstem ischaemia causing nystagmus and other ocular effects, tremors and ataxia, mental confusion, hypothermia[] The symptoms begin to gradually reduce as the lysosomal cystine shows a sharp decrease. Corneal cystine crystals can be removed using cysteamine eye drops.[]

  • Cholera

    Blood pressure drops due to dehydration, peripheral pulse is rapid and thready, and urine output decreases with time.[] As the dehydration is corrected, potassium levels may decrease rapidly, and thus need to be replaced.[] Kussmaul breathing, a deep and labored breathing pattern, can occur because of acidosis from stool bicarbonate losses and lactic acidosis associated with poor perfusion.[]

  • Hypokalemia

    Gastrointestinal complications Hypokalemia decreases gut motility, which can lead to or exacerbate an ileus.[] New data make clear that feedforward homeostatic responses activate when decreased potassium intake is sensed, even when plasma potassium concentration is still within the[] Physiology of Hypothermia. McGraw-Hill Book Company, N.Y., 1964, p. 27–31.[]

  • Diabetic Ketoacidosis

    […] to between 7.25 and 7.30 (normal 7.35–7.45); serum bicarbonate decreased to 15–18 mmol/l (normal above 20); the person is alert Moderate: pH 7.00–7.25, bicarbonate 10–15,[] The cause of death was the combined effects of hypothermia and diabetic ketoacidosis.[] Both insulin therapy and correction of acidosis decrease serum potassium levels by stimulating cellular potassium uptake in peripheral tissues.[]

  • Hyperkalemia

    […] studies indicate sodium bicarbonate does not decrease potassium within 60 minutes. 4,5,23,24 Studies that do suggest a decrease utilized bicarbonate infused over hours (rather[] Response was defined as a decrease in the serum potassium level ( 0.3 mmol/L) after treatment with CPS.[] Hyperthermia and hypothermia may lead to rhabdomyolysis.[]

  • Metabolic Alkalosis

    It is the result of an increase in bicarbonate production, a decrease in bicarbonate excretion, or a loss of hydrogen ions.[] Serum chloride: Decreased, less than 98 mEq/L, disproportionately to serum sodium decreases (if alkalosis is hypochloremia). Serum potassium: Decreased.[] The Hypothermic Patient Hypothermia can affect the accuracy of the PaO 2 measurement by causing changes in the position of the Hb-O 2 dissociation curve.[]
