407 Possible Causes for Digitalis Toxicity, Giddiness and Lightheadedness, Severe Recurrent Orthostatic Hypotension

  • Anemia

    INTRODUCTION Table 1 Etiopathogenic classification of anemia. Regenerative anemia Acute or chronic bleeding Hemolytic anemia Hereditary (hemoglobinopathy, enzymopathy, membrane-cytoskeletal defects) Acquired (autoimmune, mechanical destruction, toxic-metabolic, drugs, infectious, PNH, hypersplenism) Hypo-regenerative[…][dx.doi.org]

  • Hypoglycemia

    BACKGROUND: Postprandial hyperinsulinemic hypoglycemia (PHH) is an increasingly recognized complication of gastric bypass surgery in obese adults, distinct from the "dumping syndrome". CASE PRESENTATION: Upon birth, primary repair of esophageal atresia was performed, and at the age of 14 months definite esophageal[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Acute Amphetamine Intoxication

    Toxic concentrations of digitalis can cause nearly every known arrhythmia.[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com] Digitalis toxicity is a potentially life-threatening, and frequently a drug-related, complication.[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com] Because digitalis toxicity develops quickly and insidiously, the patient is taught early symptoms to report.[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com]

  • Hypoxia

    BACKGROUND: Hypoxia is a hallmark of the solid tumor microenvironment and is associated with poor outcomes in cancer patients. The present study was performed to investigate mechanisms underlying the hypoxia-induced phenotypic changes using human malignant mesothelioma (HMM) cells. METHODS: Hypoxic conditions[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Hypokalemia

    Susceptibility to digitalis toxicity is increased when a patient has hypokalemia.[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com] toxicity non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs: reduced diuretic efficacy beta-blockers: potentiate hyperglycemia, hyperlipidemias corticosteroids: enhance hypokalemia Loop[cvpharmacology.com] toxicity non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs: reduced diuretic efficacy corticosteroids: enhance hypokalemia aminoglycosides: enhance ototoxicity, nephrotoxicity K -sparing[cvpharmacology.com]

  • Syncope

    However, a syncopal episode associated with normal sinus rhythm may be due to several disorders such as orthostatic hypotension, vasovagal or carotid sinus reflexes, or even[omicsonline.org] In the past, digitalis toxicity was a relatively frequent concern, but that is far less common today.[thecardiologyadvisor.com] ., giddiness, lightheadedness, tunnel vision, nausea, spots in the vision).[bcmj.org]

  • Insulinoma

    A 71-year-old woman previously diagnosed with reactive hypoglycemia was transferred to our emergency unit because of loss of consciousness. Her plasma glucose level was 27 mg/dL, and continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) revealed postprandial asymptomatic hypoglycemia. A hypervascular tumor was identified via[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

    2015 ICD-9-CM Diagnosis Code 276.3 Alkalosis 2015 Billable Thru Sept 30/2015 Non-Billable On/After Oct 1/2015 ICD-9-CM 276.3 is a billable medical code that can be used to indicate a diagnosis on a reimbursement claim, however, 276.3 should only be used for claims with a date of service on or before September 30, 2015.[…][icd9data.com]

  • Cocaine Abuse

    A 48-year-old woman with a history of chronic intranasal cocaine abuse presented with unilateral proptosis associated with severe visual loss from optic neuropathy in the right eye. Imaging showed extensive bone and soft tissue destruction in the paranasal region and an orbital mass. Initial biopsies suggested a[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Cardiac Amyloidosis

    Orthostatic hypotension can be severe and difficult to manage. Fitted waist-high elastic stockings and midodrine are helpful.[cjasn.asnjournals.org] Digoxin is to be used with caution as amyloidosis patients are at increased risk of digitalis toxicity, due to its affinity for amyloid fibrils.[romanianjournalcardiology.ro] […] has no benefits in this group of patients, since the myocardium in dysfunction by the amyloid material is more susceptible to toxic effects, which predisposes to the occurrence[scielo.br]
