3,176 Possible Causes for CT Scan showing Adrenal Mass, Respiratory Muscle Weakness, Ventricular Fibrillation

  • Hypokalemia

    Paraesthesiae Decreased reflexes Ascending paralysis Hypokalaemia Defined as potassium Signs and symptoms Generalised muscle weakness Respiratory depression Ascending paralysis[armandoh.org] To report a case of ventricular fibrillation caused by severe hypokalemia probably associated with sertraline use.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Adrenal imaging with computerized tomography (CT) scan showed a low-density mass measuring 2.1 cm in diameter in the left adrenal (Figure 2 ).[bmcresnotes.biomedcentral.com]

  • Electrolyte Imbalance

    Hypermagnesemia is characterized by: lethargy hypotension decreased heart and respiratory rate muscle weakness diminished tendon reflexes HYPOMAGNESEMIA.[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com] Here, a young woman with prior episodes of auditory stimulus-induced syncope presented with LQTS and ventricular fibrillation (VF) with hypomagnesaemia and hypocalcaemia after[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Answers QUESTION 1 The CT scan (figure 2 ) shows a large mass (arrow) arising from the region of the right adrenal gland.[pmj.bmj.com]

  • Hypercalcemia

    : ventricular fibrillation ) and muscle/smooth muscle weakness.[vetstream.com] The thoracic-abdominal CT scan showed a retroesophageal mass measuring 5.6 3.2 6.8 cm, which was suspicious for parathyroid tumour, in addition to bilateral hypodense adrenal[revistanefrologia.com] […] arrhythmias (ventricular tachycardia, ventricular fibrillation) and sudden cardiac death.[ecgwaves.com]

  • Hyperkalemia

    Signs There is little abnormality except occasional bradycardia due to heart block or tachypnoea from respiratory muscle weakness. Muscle weakness and flaccid paralysis.[patient.info] Ventricular fibrillation The end game for untreated hyperkalemia is chaotic depolarisation of ventricular myocardium: ventricular fibrillation.[acadoodle.com] We defined adverse events as symptomatic bradycardia, ventricular tachycardia, ventricular fibrillation, cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and/or death.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Myotonic Dystrophy

    Children with congenital-onset DM1, once they survive the crucial neonatal period of respiratory muscle weakness with the help of assisted ventilation, usually show improvements[mda.org] During weaning from general anesthesia for resectioning of a pelvic tumour she developed ventricular fibrillation, but was successfully resuscitated.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Congenital myotonic dystrophy is a severe form of this disorder, characterized by neonatal muscle hypotonia, feeding difficulties, respiratory muscle weakness, and an increased[icd10data.com]

  • Myocardial Infarction

    For instance, in amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, the respiratory muscles become weak, which results in impaired ventilation due to failure of the respiratory pump.[web.archive.org] ACEs, including hemodynamic instability, electrical instability (ventricular tachycardia event, ventricular fibrillation or atrioventricular heart-block) and death, were observed[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] fibrillation (two trials, 178 participants), stroke (one trial, 78 participants) and allergic reactions (one trial, 100 participants) was also similar between participants[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Respiratory Muscle Paralysis

    Respiratory muscle weakness first manifests as sleep-disordered breathing (SDB).[clinicaltrials.gov] Currents greater than 75 mA cause ventricular fibrillation (very rapid, ineffective heartbeat).[elcosh.org] In addition, respiratory muscle weakness is often observed after stroke, contributing to exercise intolerance and a higher risk of poor outcome.[pnmedical.com]

  • Carbamate Poisoning

    Occurs 24-96 hours after exposure Bulbar, respiratory, and proximal muscle weakness are prominent features. Generally resolves completely in 1-3 weeks.[authorstream.com] Arrhythmias such as ventricular extrasystoles, atrial fibrillation, and ventricular fibrillation are evidence of abnormal cardiac rhythm.[symptoma.com] Miosis (73%), excessive salivation (70%), muscle weakness (68%), and lethargy (54%) were the most common abnormal signs; 49% and 22% of patients had tachycardia and seizures[utexas.influuent.utsystem.edu]
