14 Possible Causes for Cardiac Arrhythmia, Drug-induced Cardiomyopathy, Pulsus Alternans

  • Myocardial Infarction

  • Acute Myocarditis

    Cardiac arrhythmias are a complication of myocarditis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Drug-induced hypersensitivity syndrome due to mexiletine associated with human herpes virus 6 and cytomegalovirus reactivation.[scielo.br] Focal lesions may cause cardiac arrhythmia. fibrotic myocarditis healed lesion with much myocardium replaced by scar tissue; cardiac function will be severely compromised.[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com]

  • Alcoholic Cardiomyopathy

    Leg elevation promptly reversed the pulsus alternans, and the echocardiographic abnormality.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Heart failure may show on these tests: Echocardiogram Chest X-ray Chest CT A cardiac catheterization and coronary angiography An ECG may show heart enlargement or arrhythmias[aa.activeboard.com] Models, Animal Ethanol/toxicity Gene Expression Regulation/drug effects Heart Failure/chemically induced Heart Failure/genetics* Heart Failure/pathology Humans Mice Mitochondria[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Dilated Cardiomyopathy

    Toxins-induced cardiomyopathy – the most common toxin is ethanol following by illegal drug abuse of cocaine and amphetamines.[escardio.org] Pulsus alternans is an infrequent, complex pathophysiologic sign often associated with severe heart failure.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Lilly -- Mechanisms of cardiac arrhythmias / Ranliang Hu [and others] -- Clinical aspects of cardiac arrhythmias / Ranliang Hu, William G. Stevenson, and Leonard S.[worldcat.org]

  • Heart Failure

    Find out more Cancer therapy-induced cardiomyopathy: can human induced pluripotent stem cell modelling help prevent it?[eurheartj.oxfordjournals.org] alternans (alternating large and small pulse pressures) and a raised JVP.[patient.info] It has been associated with hypertension, coronary artery disease, cardiac arrhythmias, sudden cardiac death, and heart failure.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Hypersensitivity Myocarditis

    Cardiac arrhythmias or unexplained death occurred in 29 patients and did not correlate with the degree of myocardial infiltrate or presence of necrosis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] A prompt diagnosis, immediate withdrawal of the offending drug and immunosuppressant therapy may decrease mortality in drug-induced acute EM [ 1 ].[karger.com] Focal lesions may cause cardiac arrhythmia. fibrotic myocarditis healed lesion with much myocardium replaced by scar tissue; cardiac function will be severely compromised.[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com]

  • Congestive Heart Failure

    alternans (alternating large and small pulse pressures) and a raised JVP.[patient.info] arrhythmias (irregular heartbeats) Cardiomyopathy or another primary disease of the heart muscle Coronary artery disease Kawasaki's disease Inflammation of heart muscle ([chw.org] Find out more Cancer therapy-induced cardiomyopathy: can human induced pluripotent stem cell modelling help prevent it?[eurheartj.oxfordjournals.org]

  • Toxic Myocarditis

    Viruses account for most cases of myocarditis or inflammatory cardiomyopathy, which could induce an immune response causing inflammation even when the pathogen has been cleared[revespcardiol.org] People with myocarditis that causes heart failure or cardiac arrhythmias will be treated in a hospital.[drugs.com] Some patients also experience cardiac signs that vary in severity from chest pain and arrhythmias to heart failure or sudden cardiac death.[amboss.com]

  • Ventricular Bigeminy

J Cardiovasc Electrophysiol. 2005 ; 16: 88 – 91 .[tandfonline.com] alternans or trigeminus R00.8 Trigeminy R00.8 ICD-10-CM Codes Adjacent To R00.8 Q99 Other chromosome abnormalities, not elsewhere classified Q99.0 Chimera 46, XX/46, XY Q99.1[icd10data.com] Other causes of cardiac arrhythmias include hypoxia, hypercarbia, hypokalemia.[joacp.org]

Eur.[escardio.org] Pulsus alternans is generally seen in severe heart failure.[textbookofcardiology.org] Cardiovascular Medicine: Cardiac Arrhythmias, Pacing and Sudden Death covers every aspect of cardiac arrhythmias, from cardiac signs and symptoms through imaging and the genetic[books.google.com]
