378 Possible Causes for Cardiac Signs and Symptoms, Cor Pulmonale, Tachycardia

  • Chronic Right-Sided Congestive Heart Failure

    Electrocardiogram • Old MI or recent MI • Arrhythmia • Some forms of Cardiomyopathy are tachycardia related • LBBB may help in management 28.[slideshare.net] Symptoms1 Failure of the Right Ventricle results in systemic venous hypertension, and can lead to the following signs/symptoms: Peripheral edema Anorexia, nausea, and abdominal[openanesthesia.org] Chronic cor pulmonale develops gradually.[nmihi.com]

  • Pulmonary Embolism

    Neurological examination returned to base line status but sinus tachycardia and low saturation value on room air were continuing.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Syncope and altered mental status, which suggest a compromised cardiac output, are additional signs of a pulmonary embolism [1].[ems1.com] pulmonale in contrast to the well known cor pulmonale of chronic nature associated with progressive enlargement of the right side of the heart secondary to certain pulmonary[doi.org]

  • Acute Cor Pulmonale

    75 ARDS patients submitted to protective ventilation revealed the persistence of a 25% incidence of ACP, resulting in detrimental hemodynamic consequences associated with tachycardia[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] In most of the reported cases, a clinical picture of subacute cor pulmonale developed.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Don’t forget about tachycardia! Tachycardia is the most likely EKG finding in a patient with acute PE.[ditchdocem.com]

  • Acute Mountain Sickness

    History will reveal recent ascent to high altitude by the unacclimatized patient while physical examination may reveal tachycardia, tachypnea, and pulmonary rales if the patient[symptoma.com] Symptoms and Signs AMS is by far the most common form of AD.[merckmanuals.com] They concluded that patients with mild or moderate COPD without cor pulmonale tolerate altitude exposure quite well.[emedicine.medscape.com]

  • Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease

    The severity of COPD correlates with various arrhythmic manifestations such as atrial fibrillation, atrial flutter, and either sustained or nonsustained ventricular tachycardia[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] of the thorax To investigate symptoms that seem disproportionate to the spirometric impairment To investigate signs that may suggest another lung diagnosis (such as fibrosis[pathways.nice.org.uk] Edema in cor pulmonale.

  • Obstructive Sleep Apnea

    In a study of 81 males with stable heart failure, incidences of atrial fibrillation and ventricular tachycardia were significantly higher in sleep apnea subjects (AHI 10/h[onlinejacc.org] It is also common in patients with heart failure and other forms of cardiac and pulmonary disease. What are the symptoms of sleep apnea?[my.clevelandclinic.org] References: [14] [15] Complications Hypertension Hypoxia -induced cardiac arrhythmia Pulmonary hypertension and cor pulmonale Global respiratory insufficiency Cardiac infarction[amboss.com]

  • Pulmonary Infarction

    […] pregnancy and older age Small infarcts usually have minimal symptoms; if bronchial circulation is inadequate (so reduced collateral circulation), then have shortness of breath, tachycardia[pathologyoutlines.com] Each chart was reviewed for predisposing factors for PE and infarction, presenting clinical symptoms/signs, and co-existing pulmonary or cardiac conditions.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] pulmonale, resulting in incapacitating dyspnea on exertion, and disability.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Pericardial Effusion

    Emergency physicians must maintain vigilance in suspecting pericardial effusion and tamponade in patients with known or suspected malignancy who present with tachycardia,[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Cardiac Tamponade Acute Symptoms include chest pain and dyspnea Signs include tachycardia, hypotension, elevated JVP, pulsus paradoxus and muffled heart sounds Chronic/Subacute[slideshare.net] -8-27-S2.ogv 0,0 s, 768 576; 6,88 MB Mediendatei abspielen Echocardiography-of-isolated-subacute-left-heart-tamponade-in-a-patient-with-cor-pulmonale-and-1476-7120-8-27-S3[commons.wikimedia.org]

  • Respiratory Acidosis

    Tachycardia develops early because the sympathetic nervous system is stimulated, resulting in the release of catecholamines, epinephrine, and norepinephrine, in an attempt[nurseslabs.com] Arrest Signs and Symptoms CNS disturbances: restlessness, confusion, and apprehension to somnolence with fine flapping tremor, or coma.[nurseslabs.com] In long-term, this can give rise to problems like: Pulmonary hypertension Cor pulmonale Right ventricular failure The apneas and hypopneas can result in impaired sleep quality[hxbenefit.com]

  • Right Bundle Branch Block

    […] those observed during RBBB tachycardia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] He was diagnosed with a proximal bilateral acute pulmonary embolism without acute cor pulmonale.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Note that acute cor pulmonale with RBBB may cause large Q-waves in V1–V3, II, III and/or aVF.[ecgwaves.com]
