68 Possible Causes for Cardiac Arrhythmia, Coma, Persistent Lactic Acidosis

  • Acidosis

    Eventually, in severe cases, heart problems may develop and blood pressure can fall, leading to shock, coma, and death.[merckmanuals.com] Hyperlactatemia is defined as a persistent, mild to moderate (2-4 mmol/L) increase in blood lactate concentration without metabolic acidosis , whereas lactic acidosis is characterized[emedicine.medscape.com] In mild cases the symptoms may be overlooked; in severe cases symptoms are more obvious and may include muscle twitching, involuntary movement, cardiac arrhythmias, disorientation[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com]

  • Hypophosphatemia
