87 Possible Causes for Cardiac Arrest, Short PR Interval, Sudden Cardiac Death

  • Acute Myocardial Infarction

    KEYWORDS: Automated CPR; Cardiac arrest; Circulatory support; Percutaneous coronary intervention[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Crossref PubMed Virmani R, Burke AP, Farb A, Sudden cardiac death, Cardiovasc Pathol, 2001;10:275–82.[uscjournal.com] KEYWORDS: acute myocardial infarction; cardiac arrest; spontaneous coronary artery dissection; ventricular arrhythmia; young age[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Myocardial Infarction

    What is cardiac arrest? Sudden cardiac arrest occurs suddenly and often without warning.[web.archive.org] Sudden cardiac death (SCD) is a severe burden of modern medicine.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Primary outcomes Sudden cardiac death.[doi.org]

  • Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy

    Learn more about all types of cardiomyopathy and sudden cardiac arrest.[aurorahealthcare.org] The disease affects at least 0.2% of the population worldwide and is the most common cause of sudden cardiac death in young people and competitive athletes because of fatal[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] PR interval ( First-degree (PR 0.21 s, not shortening with hyperventilation), second-degree, or third-degree atrioventricular block To assess whether the changing pattern[doi.org]

  • Wolff-Parkinson-White Syndrome

    Cardiopulmonary resuscitation using extracorporeal life support is a therapeutic option in refractory cardiac arrest.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The purpose of this case report is to introduce a rare case of sudden cardiac death (SCD) with a mild myocardial bridge and a history of WPW.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Wolff-Parkinson-White (WPW) syndrome is defined as the presence of an accessory atrioventricular pathway which is manifested as delta waves and short PR interval on electrocardiography[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Preexcitation Syndrome

    arrest or sudden cardiac death must be considered as patient care plans are made.[doi.org] Wolf-Parkinson-White Syndrome and the Risk of Sudden Cardiac Death. Doctors Lounge Website. Available at: . Accessed October 10 2010.[web.archive.org] The classic electrocardiogram in Wolff-Parkinson-White (WPW) syndrome is characterized by a short PR interval and prolonged QRS duration in the presence of sinus rhythm with[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Cardiac Arrest

    Cause The great majority of cardiac arrest is caused by cardiac arrhythmias.[symptoma.com] Sudden cardiac death (SCD) is a sudden, unexpected death caused by a change in heart rhythm ( sudden cardiac arrest ).[webmd.com] interval may identify a subgroup of patients with LV dysfunction, some of whom may benefit from dual-chamber pacing with a short(er) AV delay. 72 These same principles also[circ.ahajournals.org]

  • Paroxysmal Ventricular Tachycardia

    In the most severe cases, patients with VT will go into cardiac arrest and collapse.[nmihi.com] Patients generally tolerate the tachycardia and sudden cardiac death is rare in this patient population. Treatment options include pharmacotherapy or catheter ablation.[escardio.org] The retrograde P wave may appear before, during, or after the QRS complex; if before, the PR interval is usually short (i.e., 0.12 s).[ecg.utah.edu]

  • Ventricular Fibrillation

    BACKGROUND: Early determination of the acute etiology of cardiac arrest could help guide resuscitation or post-resuscitation care.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] in the absence of clinical information (sudden death out-of-hospital).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] ECG : [ 1 ] evidence of MI, prolonged QT interval, short PR, WPW pattern or other conditions. CXR: signs of left heart failure, pulmonary hypertension.[patient.info]

  • Sudden Cardiac Death

    The risk of sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) increases: With age If you are a man. Men are more likely than women to have SCA.[web.archive.org] Sudden cardiac death (also called sudden arrest) is death resulting from an abrupt loss of heart function (cardiac arrest).[web.archive.org] Note the short PR interval. %80%93White_syndrome Exercise-induced ventricular ectopy Prolonged QT - high risk for ventricular arrhythmia (torsades de pointes) Jervell-Lange-Nielsen[pedclerk.bsd.uchicago.edu]

  • Ventricular Tachycardia

    BACKGROUND: Mortality from out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA) is characterized by substantial regional variation.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Sudden cardiac death in the United States, 1989 to 1998 .
