157 Possible Causes for Cor Pulmonale, Slow Pulse, Somnolence

  • Obstructive Sleep Apnea

    Neither patient exhibited daytime somnolence, although both were subsequently found to have severe obstructive sleep apnea.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The interaction between reflex apnoea and bradycardia produced by injecting 5-HT into the nodose ganglion.[doi.org] References: [14] [15] Complications Hypertension Hypoxia -induced cardiac arrhythmia Pulmonary hypertension and cor pulmonale Global respiratory insufficiency Cardiac infarction[amboss.com]

  • Sleep Apnea

    In epilepsy patients with risk factors (eg, obesity) or markers (eg, habitual snoring, daytime somnolence) for sleep apnea, a careful sleep history should be elicited and[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] This is known as “bradycardia.” The infant even may lose consciousness and need to be resuscitated. Infant sleep apnea has two general causes.[sleepeducation.org] Vol 8, No 3 (Autumn 2009) Introduction Cor pulmonale has a well-described association with chronic respiratory diseases such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD[phaonlineuniv.org]

  • Morbid Obesity

    This can be spectacularly effective in relieving right heart failure, day-time somnolence, and pulmonary hypertension.[academic.oup.com] Arterial oxygen tension is lower and chronic hypoxemia may lead to pulmonary hypertension and cor pulmonale.[openanesthesia.org] […] of: myocardial hypertrophy and hypoxaemia; hypokalaemia from diuretic therapy; coronary artery disease; increased circulating catecholamines; OSA (sinus tachycardia and bradycardia[academic.oup.com]

  • Hypercapnia

    A 38-year-old patient with effort dyspnea, somnolence, cianosis and cor pulmonale is presented.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Retrieved 2008-06-10. v t e Symptoms and signs : circulatory and respiratory systems ( R00-R09, 785-786 ) Cardiovascular system heartbeat : Tachycardia - Bradycardia - Palpitation[wikidoc.org] These include Altered mental status (agitation, somnolence) Peripheral or central cyanosis or decreased oxygen saturation on pulse oximetry Manifestations of a "stress response[mcgill.ca]

  • Central Sleep Apnea

    Patients with hypercapnic forms may experience daytime somnolence (sometimes called wake-time sleepiness), lethargy, and morning headache.[merckmanuals.com] These changes suggested central sleep apnea characterized by bradycardia during the apneic spells followed by awakening of the breathing center and postvagal tachycardia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] This can lead to cor pulmonale (right-sided heart failure). Call your provider if you have symptoms of this disorder.[nlm.nih.gov]

  • Atrial Fibrillation

    We report a previously healthy 58-years old female, admitted because of nausea, dizziness, somnolence, a left-sided hemiparesis and arterial hypotension.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] From a cardiac perspective, crizotinib is associated with 2 main cardiac effects, QT interval prolongation and bradycardia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] pulmonale Drug abuse Hyperthyroidism Pneumonia Pulmonary embolism Sleep apnea Clinical Presentation Atrial fibrillation has a wide spectrum of clinical presentations.[aafp.org]

  • Infantile Apnea

    The symptoms include cyanosis, pallor or bradycardia and snoring in case of obstructive apnea.[orpha.net] B., 1968, Large tonsils and adenoids in small children with cor pulmonale, Br. Heart J. 30 :356. PubMed Google Scholar 17. Bland, J. W., Edwards, F.[link.springer.com] Although these seizures were accompanied by cyanosis, bradycardia was not noted. An ictal electroencephalogram showed focal paroxysmal discharges in the temporal area.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Digitalis Toxicity

    Excessive vagal effects of digoxin in resting subjects may cause the bradycardia found in these in patients in the absence of digitalis toxicity.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Included in this group are advanced age, certain cardiac diseases (active ischemia, myocarditis, cardiomyopathy, cardiac amyloidosis, cor pulmonale) and a variety of metabolic[prep4usmle.com] The earliest signs of toxicity in the newborn are undue slowing of the pulse rate (bradycardia), sinoatrial arrest and prolongation of the PR Interval (A Collins Abrams, 2006[rn.com]

  • Heart Disease

    Bradycardia is managed by atropine.[symptoma.com] Hypoventilation and cor pulmonale due to chronic upper airway obstruction. J Pediatr. 1965 ; 67 :198-203. Crossref Google Scholar 30 Alexander JK.[circ.ahajournals.org] Bradycardia, or a heart rate that’s too slow, is when the heart rate is less than 60 beats per minute.[heart.org]
