4,219 Possible Causes for Cardiac Arrhythmia, Impaired Judgement, Persistent Lactic Acidosis

  • Acidosis

    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[] 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[] Low plasma potassium levels in those with the classic form of dRTA can also cause cardiac arrhythmias, paralysis and even death.[]

  • Chronic Alcoholism

    arrhythmia may occur.[] Heavy drinking can affect the electrical impulses in the heart, which may result in cardiac arrhythmia that could be fatal.[] During a hangover, the person is at greater risk for cardiac arrhythmias, depression, hormonal imbalances, as well as impaired brain and liver function.[]

  • Hypoxia

    […] arrest (when the heart stops pumping) Cardiac arrhythmia (heart rhythm problems) Complications of general anesthesia Drowning Drug overdose Injuries to a newborn that occurred[] While strokes and cardiac arrhythmia can both result in HII, the most frequent cause is cardiac arrest.[] […] lateral sclerosis (ALS) High altitudes Pressure on (compression) the windpipe (trachea) Strangulation In other cases, both oxygen and nutrient supply are stopped, caused by: Cardiac[]

  • Hypoglycemia

    Nocturnal hypoglycemia has been associated with cardiac arrhythmias resulting in sudden death[ 73 ].[] In AN various cardiac complications may occur: hypotension, bradycardia, life-threatening ventricular arrhythmias, pericardial effusion, reduction of left ventricular mass[] Furthermore, cardiac ischaemia or fatal arrhythmia during hypoglycaemia may lead to cardiovascular disease. 14 15 Strengths and limitations of this review The strengths of[]

  • Hypokalemia

    One complication from aggressive diuresis is hypokalemia; however, in these patients we tolerate a lower potassium level because cardiac arrhythmias are not a concern.[] Early detection and treatment allow clinician to prevent morbidity and mortality from cardiac arrhythmias and respiratory failure.[] arrhythmia.[]

  • Carbon Monoxide Poisoning

    In sub-anaesthetic doses, impaired judgement, lowered seizure threshold and sensitisation of the heart to arrhythmias may occur.[] Prolonged hypoxia due to high CO levels may lead to cardiac arrhythmias or arrest (or both) and a variety of neurologic sequelae.[] Carbon monoxide poisoning has a variety of deleterious cardiac effects including arrhythmias, coronary spasm and myocardial infarction.[]

  • Cannabis Abuse

    The acute effects of short‐term cannabis use ( Volkow 2014 ) include impaired memory ( Solowij 2008 ); impaired motor co‐ordination with an associated increased risk of involvement[] Avoid in patients with serious cardiovascular disease - eg, coronary heart disease, significant arrhythmias, unstable hypertension, severe cardiac failure.[] […] in motor vehicle accidents ( Hall 2009 ); altered judgement; and, in high doses, paranoia and psychosis.[]

  • Digitalis Toxicity

    The data from these experiments suggest that the intense arousal associated with a signal that had previously been paired with shock is sufficient to precipitate cardiac arrhythmias[] Rosen MR (1981) Cellular mechanisms of cardiac arrhythmias. In: Harrison DC (ed) Cardiac arrhythmias: a decade of progress . GK Hall, Boston, pp 25–38 Google Scholar 54.[] Digitalis-induced cardiac arrhythmias are a result of disturbances of impulse formation and conduction within different cardiac tissues resulting from digitalis altering the[]

  • Electrolytes Abnormal

    Following a well-balanced diet can also help prevent cardiac arrhythmias.[] arrhythmia, pulse thread and weak, altered mental status increase dietary potassium, administer potassium, supplement (IV & PO) - potassium chloride, monitor I&O and serum[] The most common symptoms include mild or severe weakness and cardiac arrhythmias.[]

    Missing: Persistent Lactic Acidosis
  • Smoke Inhalation Injury

    Tachycardia, increased cardiac output, arrhythmias, and cardiac ischemia may also be evident.[] Cardiac arrhythmias are common in electrical burns if the flow of electricity crosses through the thorax and across the heart.[] Cardiac toxicity and arrhythmias are common in the presence of hypoxia. In suspected inhalation injuries, cardiac monitoring should be instituted promptly.[]
