    arrhythmias confusion, seizures, dyskinesias, dystonias, or coma D.[dsm.wikia.com] Background: Chronic amphetamine users may have experience of paranoia and hallucination.[cochrane.org] arrhythmias Many arrhythmias are self-limiting Cardiac monitoring Advanced cardiac life support (ACLS) protocol if indicated Cardiology consultation B.[clinicaladvisor.com]

  • Carbon Monoxide Poisoning

    Prolonged hypoxia due to high CO levels may lead to cardiac arrhythmias or arrest (or both) and a variety of neurologic sequelae.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] These include: Dizziness Confusion Agitation Delirium and hallucinations Headache Vertigo Visual disturbances like diplopia Abdominal pain Lethargy Chest pain Palpitation[symptoma.com] Carbon monoxide poisoning has a variety of deleterious cardiac effects including arrhythmias, coronary spasm and myocardial infarction.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Cocaine Abuse

    Well known are the systemic effects of cocaine abuse (acute myocardial infarction, cardiac arrhythmias, aortic ruptures, cerebrovascular accidents).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] loss Lacking the need for sleep Seizures Elevated body temperature Cognitive symptoms : Ability to hyperfocus Heightened startle response Intensified alertness Psychosis Hallucinations[sonorabehavioral.com] These cellular effects of cocaine cumulate into serious conditions such as heart attacks and cardiac arrhythmias, which may be fatal.[drugabuse.com]

  • Substance Abuse Problems

    Arrhythmias Cardiac arrhythmias are irregularities in heartbeat, or the rate at which blood is pumped around the body by the heart.[americanaddictioncenters.org] Higher doses can cause amnesia, paranoia and hallucinations, depression, and difficulty breathing.[emedicinehealth.com] Effects on Behavior Substance use disorders can lead to multiple behavioral problems, both in the short- and long-term, which can include: 1 Paranoia 2 Aggressiveness 3 Hallucinations[gatewayfoundation.org]

  • Hyperkalemia

    Congenital abnormalities of aldosterone synthesis also can lead to potassium elevation and excessive sodium loss.[aafp.org] The fact, however, that hyperkalemia can lead to sudden death from cardiac arrhythmias requires that physicians be quick to consider hyperkalemia in patients who are at risk[emedicine.medscape.com] CNS symptoms of digitalis toxicity include the following: Drowsiness Lethargy Fatigue Neuralgia Headache Dizziness Confusion or giddiness Hallucinations Seizures (rare) Paresthesias[emedicine.medscape.com]

  • Thallium Poisoning

    The subjects with higher-than-normal thallium levels also exhibited varying degrees of symptoms consistent with thallium toxicity including cardiac arrhythmias , fatigue,[wellnessdentalcare.com] CHILDREN in the town of Sillamae in northeastern Estonia are losing their hair and suffering hallucinations in what seems to be the second outbreak of thallium poisoning in[newscientist.com] ECG, as there may be cardiac arrhythmias. Differential diagnosis Guillain-Barré syndrome. Poisoning with other heavy metals including arsenic and mercury.[patient.info]

  • Hypoxia

    Conventional sequences can help exclude other causes of encephalopathy such as hemorrhage, cerebral infarction, neoplasms, or congenital malformations.[radiopaedia.org] […] arrest (when the heart stops pumping) Cardiac arrhythmia (heart rhythm problems) Complications of general anesthesia Drowning Drug overdose Injuries to a newborn that occurred[medlineplus.gov] The possibility of hallucinations in hypoxia patients limits their credibility as witnesses or even their ability to report crime or sexual abuse they have been subjected[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Hypokalemia

    abnormalities Cushing disease or syndrome Congenital adrenal hyperplasia Hyperaldosteronism High renin states Increased mineralocorticoid – chewing tobacco, licorice Intrinsic[physio-pedia.com] One complication from aggressive diuresis is hypokalemia; however, in these patients we tolerate a lower potassium level because cardiac arrhythmias are not a concern.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] A patient can experience psychosis, hallucinations, and depression when their potassium is low.[ausmed.com]

  • Anticholinergic Toxicity

    Cardiac monitoring is essential to detect induced arrhythmias.[emergencymedpearls.blogspot.com] On the other hand, psychosis, agitation, confusion, hallucinations, seizures, altered consciousness, and coma in later stages are hallmarks of CNS toxicity.[symptoma.com] Heinonen OP. et al: Antenatal exposure to the phenothiazines in relation to congenital malformations, perinatal mortality rate, birth weight and intelligence quotient score[books.google.com]
