  • Obstructive Sleep Apnea

    If there's underlying heart disease, these repeated multiple episodes of low blood oxygen could lead to sudden death from a cardiac event.[] References: [14] [15] Complications Hypertension Hypoxia -induced cardiac arrhythmia Pulmonary hypertension and cor pulmonale Global respiratory insufficiency Cardiac infarction[] It has been associated with hypertension, coronary artery disease, cardiac arrhythmias, sudden cardiac death, and heart failure.[]

Heart conduction system is rarely investigated at autopsy, even in cases of sudden cardiac death.[] Five of the cases were reported to die with respiratory failure and cor pulmonale, two of whom were aged 1 – 3 , 8 .[] We tested the hypothesis that the wearable cardioverter defibrillator can be used to mitigate the risk of sudden cardiac death among cardiac sarcoidosis patients.[]

  • Pulmonary Embolism

    We present an unusual case of sudden death owing to acute pulmonary embolism after undergoing total extraperitoneal inguinal hernia repair.[] […] acute cor pulmonale I26.9 Pulmonary embolism without acute cor pulmonale I26.90 Septic pulmonary embolism without acute cor pulmonale I26.92 Saddle embolus of pulmonary artery[] The present case is interesting because a non-thrombotic pulmonary embolism rarely results in sudden death, and a definitive diagnosis was possible only by a histopathological[]

  • Cardiac Tamponade

    Spontaneous coronary artery rupture is a rare disorder that may develop early into a sudden death due to the abrupt evolution of the associated cardiac tamponade.[] Currently, the most widely used applications of FUSA include the guidance and characterization of perioperative shock (acute cor pulmonale, left ventricular dysfunction, cardiac[] We report sudden death in a patient diagnosed with AAAD and in whom critical care ultrasound highly indicated hemorrhagic cardiac tamponade.[]

  • Pulmonary Veno-Occlusive Disease

    Clinical and gross autopsy findings on a 3-month-old infant were consistent with the sudden infant death syndrome.[] We report a patient with a long history of progressive dyspnea of over 8 years, who with a diagnosis of chronic cor pulmonale confirmed elsewhere, was ultimately diagnosed[] pulmonale ) When to Contact a Medical Professional Call your provider if you have symptoms of this disorder.[]
