138 Possible Causes for Brain Concussion, Orthostatic Hypotension

  • Brain Concussion

    The aim of this prospective study was to evaluate whether a similar neuroendocrine and metabolic response is found in children after minor head trauma such as brain concussion[] A brain concussion is a still incompletely defined syndrome of traumatic brain injury (TBI) that causes a spectrum of symptoms without evident structural damage to the brain[] Almost invariably the prognosis of brain concussion is good.[]

  • Syncope

    Orthostatic hypotension has a vast differential that has been previously described throughout the literature.[] Orthostatic intolerance has an expanding spectrum with three well-defined entities: orthostatic hypotension (OH), neurally mediated hypotension (NMH), and postural tachycardia[] In contrast, in patients with orthostatic hypotension due to autonomic failure, these cardiovascular homeostatic reflexes are chronically impaired.[]

  • Multiple Injuries

    Despite dramatic advances in medicine, traumatic brain injury, commonly know as concussion, is still one of the most puzzling and least understood injuries facing the sport[] Types of Traumatic Injuries Some common type of traumatic injuries include, but are not limited to: Traumatic brain injury Spinal cord injury Spine fractures Amputation -[] […] such a conference as well as to condense our current understanding of mechanisms, predispositions, and latest developments in evaluation and managements of sport-related concussions[]

  • Temporomandibular Joint Disorder

    hypotension, uncontrolled high blood pressure; recent history of myocardial infarction or unstable coronary artery disease; seizure disorder, history of bipolar disorder[] However, there is insufficient evidence confirming that usage of appliances prevent brain concussions [ 8 , 33 , 40 ].[] […] retention or hesitation, delayed gastric emptying; substantial alcohol use or evidence of chronic liver disease, hepatic insufficiency and hepatotoxicity; bleeding disorders, orthostatic[]

  • Hypokalemia

    Weak pulses (irregular and thread) Orthostatic Hypotension Depression ST, flat or inverted T wave and prominent u-wave Shallow respirations with diminished breath sounds….[] Lazar L, Erez I, Gutermacher M, Katz S: Brain concussion produces transient hypokalemia in children. J Peds Surg 32:88–90, 1997. 12.[] hypotension Decreased bowel sounds Hyperglycemia Diagnostic Test Results-Laboratory Serum potassium level is less than 3.5 mEq/L.[]

  • Amantadine

    Orthostatic hypotension. Peripheral edema. Renal (CrCl See Also: Amantadine HCl Syrup Pharmacological Class: Adamantane. Interactions: Caution with CNS stimulants.[] , particularly in concussions that don't heal, or severe brain injury.[] One child experienced orthostatic hypotension with concomitant stimulant medication. No other side effects or exacerbation of psychiatric symptoms was reported.[]

  • Abnormal Eye Movement

    hypotension.[] Concussion: Eye Movements Help in Assessment of Head Injury Introduction Head injuries can often cause the trauma to the brain known as concussion; concussion occurs when[] Brain Inj 1999;13:151-172. Maruta J, Lee SW, Jacobs EF, Ghajar J: A unified science of concussion. Ann NY Acad Sci 2010;1208:58-66.[]

  • Cerebral Cortical Atrophy

    Clinical manifestations include autonomic failure (orthostatic hypotension, syncope, respiratory disturbances (sleep apnea, stridor and inspiratory sighs), constipation, bladder[] […] infarct was more frequent in patients with post-concussion syndrome (53.3%) and depression (42.8%).[] Prognosis MSA is rapidly progressive and is associated with wheelchair dependence, unintelligible speech, intermittent urinary catheterization, disabling orthostatic hypotension[]

  • Myoclonic Epilepsy of Infancy

    hypotension, and narcolepsy.[] This includes a high fever, high or low blood sugar, alcohol or drug withdrawal, or a brain concussion.[] […] differential diagnosis of epilepsy includes many other illnesses marked by episodes of loss of consciousness, including pseudoseizures, syncope, transient ischemic attacks, orthostatic[]

  • Syringomyelia

    We report the successful management of a patient of syringomyelia with ACM who developed orthostatic hypotension during positioning for foramen magnum decompression.[] […] injury (mTBI) and concussions among children, published by the CDC in September.[] Strokes, concussions, Alzheimers and many other brain problems affect about 50 million Americans.[]
