10 Possible Causes for Continuous Arrhythmic Slowing, Impaired Judgement, Intermittent Slow Activity

  • Hypoglycemia

    An 84-year-old Japanese woman with metastatic insulinoma suffered from frequent hypoglycemic events. Continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) confirmed severe and frequent symptomatic/asymptomatic hypoglycemia. After the initiation of everolimus treatment, the hypoglycemic events were rapidly eliminated. CGM revealed[…][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

    Generalized or regional bisynchronous slow activity - Generalized or regional bisynchronous slow activity may be intermittent or continuous, and seems to be due to disordered[scielo.br] Continuous slow activity suggests a more severe brain damage (likelihood of increased mass effect, large lesion or deep hemispheric lesion), whereas intermittent slow activity[scielo.br] A nonrhythmic, temporal intermittent polymorphic delta activity (TIPDA) may occur interictally in patients with temporal and extratemporal epilepsy with an equal frequency[scielo.br]

  • Hyponatremia

    BACKGROUND: To investigate the prognostic value of hyponatremia, defined as serum sodium level METHODS: We performed a retrospective analysis of the RN patients (The patients included in our study had a history of primary cancers including nasopharyngeal carcinoma/glioma/oral cancer and received radiotherapy[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • 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]

  • Metabolic Encephalopathy

    In the cases of encephalopathy, EEG can register generalized slowing or suppression of the EEG reactivity, loss of fast rhythm with occurrence of diffuse slow activity (theta[neurologyindia.com] […] hypoglycemia, EEG can register diffuse theta activity with occasional occurrence of specific patterns, e.g., frontal intermittent rhythmic delta activity (FIRDA), or spikes[neurologyindia.com] […] and delta), presence of particular EEG patterns (focal or generalized), intermittent activity suppression, or an electrocortical silence.

  • Acute Intermittent Porphyria

    Porphyria Types Urine can have this appearance during an attack or upon standing in the light. This is one of the hereditary hepatic porphyrias. Its inheritance is autosomal dominant. The deficient enzyme is porphobilinogen deaminase (PBGD), also known as hydroxymethylbilane synthase. This enzyme was formerly known[…][web.archive.org]

  • Wernicke Encephalopathy

    The variable clinical presentation of Wernicke encephalopathy often complicates interpretation. Prompt and accurate diagnosis relies on a constellation of typical and atypical magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) findings, which are not always simultaneously present. Our case demonstrates concurrent presentation of all[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Meningoencephalitis

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