66 Possible Causes for Cardiac Arrhythmia, Pulsus Alternans

  • Cardiomyopathy

    INTRODUCTION: Noncompaction cardiomyopathy is a rare phenotype of cardiomyopathy associated with severe cardiac arrhythmia and thromboembolic complications.[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] It is often asymptomatic, although arrhythmias and even sudden cardiac death can occur.[amboss.com]

  • Myocardial Infarction

    Cardiology Teaching Package A Beginners Guide to Normal Heart Function, Sinus Rhythm & Common Cardiac Arrhythmias Definition of Myocardial Infarction Prior to 2001, 2 categories[nottingham.ac.uk] The terminal event is often a cardiac arrhythmia, either ventricular tachycardia deteriorating to ventricular fibrillation or extreme bradycardic arrest.[emedicine.medscape.com]

  • Acute Myocardial Infarction

    References Huikuri HV, Castellanos A, Myerburg RJ, Sudden death due to cardiac arrhythmias, N Engl J Med, 2001;345:1473–82.[uscjournal.com] KEYWORDS: acute myocardial infarction; cardiac arrest; spontaneous coronary artery dissection; ventricular arrhythmia; young age[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] ., The Implications of Obesity for Cardiac Arrhythmia Mechanisms and Management, Canadian Journal of Cardiology., 2015,31, 203-210 Crossref Google Scholar [30] Wang T.J.,[degruyter.com]

  • Acute Myocarditis

    Cardiac arrhythmias are a complication of myocarditis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] , Implantable Devices, SCD/Ventricular Arrhythmias, Atrial Fibrillation/Supraventricular Arrhythmias, Cardiac Surgery and Arrhythmias, Cardiac Surgery and Heart Failure, Acute[acc.org] Acute myocarditis should be suspected whenever a young patient, presents with otherwise unexplained cardiac abnormalities, such as heart failure, cardiac arrhythmias, or conduction[omicsonline.org]

  • 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] In men, sudden cardiac death is a risk especially in the setting of fatal arrhythmias.[symptoma.com]

  • Rheumatic Heart Disease

    […] complication thereof (i.e. heart failure, stroke, infective endocarditis, arrhythmia) as an immediate or underlying cause-of-death, without listing ischaemic heart disease[journals.plos.org] […] pertaining to RHD or ARF; and 2) Broadly, where the death certificate listed an ICD10 code pertaining to either RHD, an alternative description of valvular heart disease, or a cardiac[journals.plos.org]

  • 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] alternans Increased intensity of P 2 heart sound Hepatojugular reflux Ascites, hepatomegaly, and/or anasarca Central or peripheral cyanosis, pallor See Presentation for more[emedicine.com]

  • Heart Failure

    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] Acute cerebral injuries, such as cerebral ischemic or hemorrhagic events, have been repeatedly correlated with sudden electrocardiogram (ECG) changes, such as cardiac arrhythmias[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Dilated Cardiomyopathy

    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] Nutritional deficiencies, alcohol or cocaine abuse, pregnancy, cardiac arrhythmias , sudden emotional shock, genetic abnormalities, thyroid disease, and autoimmune disorders[heartdisease.about.com]

  • Pulmonary Edema

    (b) Amiodarone (single bolus or short term infusion) effectively treats many cardiac arrhythmias and may be an option for fast heart rate control when other measures fail[casesjournal.biomedcentral.com] This mechanism may occur with many cardiac diseases, such as arrhythmia , heart disease, heart failure ; a trauma causing a rupture of the membrane between the vessels and[health.ccm.net] Patients may present with congestive cardiac failure due to intracavitary obstruction to blood flow, valvular dysfunction, embolic phenomena, local invasion resulting in arrhythmias[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
