  • Anemia

    The potential harms associated with ESA therapy include increased risk for thromboembolic events shown in 3 studies and a suggestion of increased stroke rates in 1 study.[] Laboratory Tests Hemolytic anemias are often first identified by signs and symptoms, during physical examination, and by medical history.[] A medical history can reveal, for example, a recent transfusion, treatment with penicillin, or cardiac surgery.[]

  • Substance Abuse Problems

    Anabolic steroids are linked to the increased risk of many cardiovascular disorders, including 29 : Atrial fibrillation Stroke Heart failure Cardiomyopathy Thromboembolism[]

  • Congestive Heart Failure

    CONCLUSION: Patients with CHF are at increased risk for ischemic stroke and thromboembolism.[] This is a rare occurrence, especially in patients that do not exhibit any signs and symptoms of acute cardiac decompensation.[] […] a constellation of clinical symptoms (dyspnea and fatigue) and signs (edema and rales) that lead to frequent hospitalizations, a poor quality of life, and a shortened life[]

  • Mitral Valve Prolapse

    The latter, in turn, augments the likelihood of suffering thromboembolism and stroke. The etiology of MVP is largely unknown.[] Books for People with Signs and Symptoms of Mitral Valve Prolapse The Mitral Valve Prolapse Syndrome/Dysautonomia Survival Guide James F.[] Signs and Symptoms Most patients with MVP are asymptomatic.[]

  • Acute Hyperventilation

    Other symptoms are lightheadedness, dizziness, peripheral paresthesia, tingling of the hands and feet, muscle weakness, tetany, and cardiac arrhythmia.[] See also metabolic acidosis , respiratory acidosis . observations Deep and rapid breathing at rates as high as 40 breaths per minute is a major sign of respiratory alkalosis[]

  • Transient Ischemic Attack

    The score shows good performance in defining the truly-low-risk AF patients for stroke/thromboembolism. 2017 American Heart Association, Inc.[] Diagnostic studies Lab testing can help rule out metabolic and hematologic causes of neurologic signs and symptoms and may include a comprehensive metabolic panel, complete[] In general, a TIA presents as a syndrome rather than any one sign or symptom.[]

  • Cardiac Arrhythmia

    The signs and symptoms of cardiac arrhythmias can range from completely asymptomatic to loss of consciousness or sudden cardiac death.[] In many instances, cardiac arrhythmia may not produce any signs or symptoms.[] Cardiac arrhythmias are disturbances in the normal rhythm of the heartbeat. Arrhythmias may be a sign of heart disease and can lead to other cardiac symptoms.[]

  • Syncope

    ., giddiness, lightheadedness, tunnel vision, nausea, spots in the vision).[] Cardiac syncope is usually associated with virtually no prodromal symptoms (no signs that the syncope was about to occur). It often occurs during exercise.[] ‘In patients without focal neurologic symptoms and signs, syncope from cerebrovascular disease is extremely rare.’[]
