15 Possible Causes for Carpopedal Spasm, Dysesthesia, Potassium Decreased

  • Metabolic Alkalosis

    spasm (Trousseau sign) depressed respirations (b/c of compensation trying to hold CO2) paralytic ileus (gut shuts down to hold HCO3) ABGs (increased pH and HCO3) decreased[] Serum chloride: Decreased, less than 98 mEq/L, disproportionately to serum sodium decreases (if alkalosis is hypochloremia). Serum potassium: Decreased.[] spasm Type 1 Excludes hysterical tetany ( F44.5 ) neonatal tetany ( P71.3 ) parathyroid tetany ( E20.9 ) post-thyroidectomy tetany ( E89.2 ) alkalosis E87.3 ICD-10-CM Codes[]

  • Acute Hyperventilation

    spasm.[] This leads to increased plasma protein binding of the serum potassium and a decrease of the physiologically active ionized calcium.[] Abstract The effects of increasing respiratory rates on arterial pH, PaCO2, HCO3, and potassium (K) were measured in normal anesthetized dogs.[]

  • Hypokalemia

    Case presentation We report a case of a 4-year-old girl presenting carpopedal spasm and rhabdomyolysis due to severe hypokalemia associated to hypophosphatemia and hypovolemia[] New data make clear that feedforward homeostatic responses activate when decreased potassium intake is sensed, even when plasma potassium concentration is still within the[] What Makes the Potassium Level Decrease?[]

  • Respiratory Alkalosis

    Signs include hyperpnea or tachypnea and carpopedal spasms. Diagnosis is clinical and with ABG and serum electrolyte measurements. Treatment is directed at the cause.[] According to classical data, serum potassium decreases during the acute respiratory alkalosis.[] spasm Shift 02 dissociation curve to the left (Alkalosis) (Increased affinity of Hb for O2) Correction Treat underlying cause Re-breather mask References and Links Acid-Base[]

  • Hypocalcemia

    Manifestations include hyperactive deep tendon reflexes, chvostek's sign, muscle and abdominal cramps, and carpopedal spasm.[] […] to hypoxia and/or acidosis Cell destruction - crushing injuries, burns and hemolysis Inadequate Potassium Excretion - from decreased aldosterone related to Adrenalectomy[] Manifestations include hyperactive deep tendon reflexes, Chvostek's sign, muscle and abdominal cramps, and carpopedal spasm.[]

  • Alkalosis

    spasm Shift 02 dissociation curve to the left (Alkalosis) (Increased affinity of Hb for O2) Correction Treat underlying cause Re-breather mask References and Links Acid-Base[] The blood levels of potassium and sodium can decrease dramatically, causing symptoms of metabolic alkalosis.[] Potassium depletion decreases aldosterone release by the adrenal cortex.[]

  • Malabsorption Syndrome

    […] liver ), cereals, seeds, legumes Vitamin B 5 ( Pantothenic acid ) Deficiency is rare Adrenal insufficiency Enteritis Alopecia Dermatitis May lead to distal paresthesias and dysesthesias[] spasm Ca, Mg Edema Protein Glossitis Vitamins B 2 and B 12, folate, niacin, iron Night blindness Vitamin A Pain in limbs, bones, pathologic fractures K, Mg, Ca, vitamin D[] , and potassium levels muscle wasting and atrophy due to decreased protein absorption and metabolism perianal skin burning, itching, or soreness due to frequent loose stools[]

  • Ciguatera Poisoning

    Notes Clinical illness defined as: gastrointestinal symptoms (vomiting, diarrhea, abdominal discomfort, nausea) within 24 hours, and/or neurological symptoms (temperature dysesthesia[] Other reported symptoms include carpopedal spasm, ptosis, and inconsolability.[] — still recommended by some experts despite a double-blind randomised controlled trial that found no benefit — Mannitol’s beneficial effects (if any) may be related to a decrease[]

  • Myopathy and Diabetes mellitus

    At the age of 26, she developed nausea, vomiting and dysesthesia in the legs.[] spasm.[] Since a reduction in the blood potassium level (from 4.0 mEq/ l to 2.4 mEq/ l ) was observed with a slight decrease in the urinary potassium level, an intracellular potassium[]

  • Myopathy, Endocrine

    Small fiber disease leads to a change in pain and temperature sensation with dysesthesias, paresthesias, and neuropathic pain.[] Parathyroid dysfunction Hypoparathyroidism causes tetany, with or without carpopedal spasm.[] . 126 Aldosterone has been shown to decrease NO bioavailability, inhibiting endothelium-dependent relaxation.[]
