10 Possible Causes for Continuous Arrhythmic Slowing, Generalized Slowing - Delta Waves, Impaired Judgement

  • Hypoglycemia

    Anorexia nervosa (AN) is characterized by very low body mass index (BMI), related to obsessive fear of gaining weight, resulting in food restriction. In AN various cardiac complications may occur: hypotension, bradycardia, life-threatening ventricular arrhythmias, pericardial effusion, reduction of left ventricular[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Alzheimer Disease

    It affects memory, thinking, orientation, comprehension, calculation, learning capacity, language, and judgement. Consciousness is not affected.[who.int] Progression is evident as increasing impairment of memory developing gradually into a global impairment of cognition, including orientation, language, judgement, perceptual[dx.doi.org] The impairment in cognitive function is commonly accompanied, and occasionally preceded, by deterioration in emotional control, social behaviour, or motivation.[who.int]

  • Traumatic Brain Injury

    ; disrupted insight, judgement, and thought; reduced processing speed; distractibility; and deficits in executive functions such as abstract reasoning, planning, problem-solving[en.wikipedia.org] […] frontal atrophy may have impaired post-retrieval evaluation processes leading the patient to falsely conclude, based on more general characteristics of the study episode,[dx.doi.org] Memory loss, the most common cognitive impairment among head-injured people, occurs in 20–79% of people with closed head trauma, depending on severity.[en.wikipedia.org]

  • Stroke

    Thalamic lesions generally produced focal or unilateral delta activity, but the slow activity varied in time of onset, amplitude and degree of focality 16.[scielo.br] In general, fast-growing tumors, such as glioblastoma multiforme or metastatic brain tumors, are associated with focal slow activity occurring in the delta frequency 16.[scielo.br] Studies suggested that thalamic deafferentation from the cortex rather than cortical deafferentation from below may be the slow wave mechanism 11,15,16.[scielo.br]

  • Hyponatremia

    Hyponatremia Other names Hyponatraemia, low blood sodium, hyponatræmia Sodium Specialty Internal medicine Symptoms Decreased ability to think, headaches, nausea, poor balance, confusion, seizures, coma [1] [2] Types Low volume, normal volume, high volume [3] Diagnostic method Serum sodium 135 mmol/L [2] Differential[…][en.wikipedia.org]

  • Dementia

    Common dementia signs and symptoms include: Memory loss Impaired judgement Difficulties with abstract thinking Faulty reasoning Inappropriate behavior Loss of communication[helpguide.org] Common dementia signs and symptoms Memory loss Impaired judgement Difficulties with abstract thinking Faulty reasoning Inappropriate behavior Loss of communication skills[helpguide.org] It affects memory, thinking, orientation, comprehension, calculation, learning capacity, language, and judgement. Consciousness is not affected.[web.archive.org]

  • Acute Intermittent Porphyria

    Chinese Medical Journal. 128(14):1980–1981, JUL 2015 DOI: 10.4103/0366-6999.160621 , PMID: 26168842 Issn Print: 0366-6999 Publication Date: 2015/07/01 Checking for direct PDF access through Ovid Excerpt Acute intermittent porphyria (AIP) is an autosomal dominant inborn error of metabolism caused by deficiency of[…][doi.org]

  • Wernicke Encephalopathy

    Wernicke encephalopathy ( WE ), also Wernicke's encephalopathy [1] is the presence of neurological symptoms caused by biochemical lesions of the central nervous system after exhaustion of B-vitamin reserves, in particular thiamine (vitamin B1). The condition is part of a larger group of thiamine deficiency disorders,[…][en.wikipedia.org]

  • Metabolic Encephalopathy

    Metabolic encephalopathy is a transient or permanent impairment of brain function resulting from physiological insufficiency or aberrant metabolic processes accompanying certain systemic illness such as diabetes or liver disease. Timely recognition and treatment of the predisposing condition can reverse the potential[…][symptoma.com]

  • Meningoencephalitis

    Common characteristic symptoms of ME are fever, headache, nausea, vomiting, stiff neck and back, weak muscles, impaired judgement, confusion and drowsiness.[symptoma.com]
