11 Possible Causes for Digitalis Toxicity, Dyspnea, Ventral Hernia

  • Obesity

    It is likely that obesity modifies the clinical picture of COPD because of its effects on the perception of dyspnea and exercise tolerance.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Obesity is a risk factor for dyspnea but not for airflow obstruction. Arch Intern Med 2002 ; 162 : 1477 -81. 17. Weiner P, Waizman J, Weiner M, et al.[doi.org] […] testing. 16 An accurate diagnosis is important because dyspnea related to other mechanisms or diseases may require a different therapeutic strategy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Morbid Obesity

    We present a 17 year-old woman, with a previous genetic diagnosis of Prader-Willi syndrome and BMI of 74 Kg/m(2), that was admitted in anasarca, with marked cyanosis, dyspnea[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Early in pregnancy, the alveolar ventilation is increased and pregnant women have a sense of dyspnea.[bariatrictimes.com]

  • Anemia

    In the GBD 2010, we included abdominal hernia, including umbilical hernia, ventral hernia, and diaphragmatic hernia in the category “other digestive diseases”.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Acute anemia presents with symptoms owing to acute blood loss; chronic anemia may present with worsening fatigue, dyspnea, lightheadedness, or chest pain.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] They are called the general symptoms of anemia : Fatigue Reduced performance Tiredness Headache Exertional dyspnea Tachycardia Dizziness 4 Diagnosis The basis of diagnosing[flexikon.doccheck.com]

  • Old Age

    BACKGROUND: Ventral hernia repair (VHR) is a frequent problem in the expanding aging population.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] She initially presented with chest pressure and dyspnea, and subsequently developed subacute bacterial endocarditis and typical angina pectoris with ECG changes, but with[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] became intense to the point of reversing the direction of the shunt, from the right to the left, characterizing a probable Eisenmenger syndrome, responsible for the patient's dyspnea[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Incessant Infant Ventricular Tachycardia

  • Second Degree Atrioventricular Block

    PR interval of first degree AV block cause of First-Degree AV Blocks AV node ischemia, digitalis toxicity, or side effects from other medications such as beta blockers or[quizlet.com] Introduction An umbilical hernia is a ventral hernia located at or near the umbilicus.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Case 2 was a 31-year-old woman with first-degree AV block and complete right bundle branch block with dyspnea on exertion and occasional syncope.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Peripheral Arteriovenous Aneurysm

  • Amebic Liver Abscess

    Emetine, like digitalis may produce mild ST and T wave changes in the electrocardiogram which does not necessarily mean serious toxicity.[en.wikipedia.org] The patient had a reducible ventral hernia along his surgical scar. Organomegaly was not noted.[academic.oup.com] At presentation, he had pain in the right upper abdominal quadrant (RUAQ) with guarding and rigidity, accompanied by fever, vomiting and dyspnea.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Amebic Abscess

    Emetine, like digitalis may produce mild ST and T wave changes in the electrocardiogram which does not necessarily mean serious toxicity.[en.wikipedia.org] The patient had a reducible ventral hernia along his surgical scar. Organomegaly was not noted.[academic.oup.com] Depending on type, the complication itself was signaled by increase or change in character of right upper abdominal or lower thoracic pain, dyspnea, or overt respiratory insufficiency[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Deafness - Opticoacoustic Nerve Atrophy - Dementia Syndrome

    […] optic neuropathy (toxic amblyopia) Drugs ( chloramphenicol, ethambutol, isoniazid, streptomycin, sulfonamides, digitalis, chlorpropamide, ergot, disulfiram ) Methanol ingestion[merckmanuals.com] The genitalia are often ambiguous and some patients have had ventral hernias. Hearing loss can be a feature.[disorders.eyes.arizona.edu] Mild neurosensory hearing impairment Basal ganglia gliosis Multiple lipomas Hypertension Abnormality of cardiovascular system morphology Congestive heart failure Myalgia Dyspnea[mendelian.co]
