121 Possible Causes for Cardiac Arrhythmia, Congenital Abnormality, Impaired Judgement

  • Carbon Monoxide Poisoning

    In sub-anaesthetic doses, impaired judgement, lowered seizure threshold and sensitisation of the heart to arrhythmias may occur.[web.archive.org] 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] 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] These cellular effects of cocaine cumulate into serious conditions such as heart attacks and cardiac arrhythmias, which may be fatal.[drugabuse.net]

  • Acute Amphetamine Intoxication

    judgement.[dsm.wikia.com] Amphetamine use can also impair judgement and contribute to accidents, such as road accidents.[betterhealth.vic.gov.au] arrhythmias Many arrhythmias are self-limiting Cardiac monitoring Advanced cardiac life support (ACLS) protocol if indicated Cardiology consultation B.[clinicaladvisor.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] Update in Cardiac Arrhythmias and Pacing. Revista espanola de cardiologia. 2015. Kaplan EH, Gottesman RF, Llinas RH, Marsh EB.[americanaddictioncenters.org] These may include 3 : Cardiomyopathy Cerebral infarction Cardiac arrhythmia Myocardial infarction Cocaine The common illegal stimulant cocaine is linked to the greatest incidence[americanaddictioncenters.org]

  • Acidosis

    Lactic acidosis, on the other hand, is associated with major metabolic dysregulation, tissue hypoperfusion, the effects of certain drugs or toxins, and congenital abnormalities[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] All diarrhea types result in a non-gap metabolic acidosis except for congenital chloridorrhea which causes a metabolic alkalosis.[pulmonologyadvisor.com]

  • 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] While strokes and cardiac arrhythmia can both result in HII, the most frequent cause is cardiac arrest.[caregiver.org]

  • 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] Early detection and treatment allow clinician to prevent morbidity and mortality from cardiac arrhythmias and respiratory failure.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Electrolytes Abnormal

    Congenital abnormality of the kidney and urinary tract was found to be a significant risk factor for nosocomial peritonitis in pediatric patients with ESRD undergoing peritoneal[emedicine.medscape.com] Following a well-balanced diet can also help prevent cardiac arrhythmias.[healthyeating.sfgate.com] Her test results came back abnormal.[steadyhealth.com]

  • Smoke Inhalation Injury

    malformations, deformations and chromosomal abnormalities ( Q00-Q99 ) endocrine, nutritional and metabolic diseases ( E00 - E88 ) injury, poisoning and certain other consequences[icd10data.com] Tachycardia, increased cardiac output, arrhythmias, and cardiac ischemia may also be evident.[clinicaladvisor.com] Cardiac arrhythmias are common in electrical burns if the flow of electricity crosses through the thorax and across the heart.[cdemcurriculum.com]

  • Asphyxia

    The stillbirth rate was 3.0% while the incidence of externally evident congenital malformations was 1.2%.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Cardiac arrhythmia (irregular FHR): due to severe hypoxia. It is the most dangerous one. Late deceleration. Loss of beat - to - beat variation.[gfmer.ch] PREDISPOSING FACTORSFetal Causes Multiple pregnancies Big baby with CPD Fetal anomalies - Congenital abnormalities of the lung 10.[slideshare.net]
