763 Possible Causes for Digitalis Toxicity, Palpitations with Skipped Beats, Ventral Hernia

  • Obesity

    The prevalence of obesity and overweight increased in the United States between 1978 and 1991. More recent reports have suggested continued increases but are based on self-reported data. To examine trends and prevalences of overweight (body mass index [BMI] or 25) and obesity (BMI or 30), using measured[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Morbid Obesity

    Morbid obesity is associated with liver pathology, most commonly non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH) leading to cirrhosis. However, the morbid obesity impedes qualification for organ transplantation. We present a case report of a 56-year-old woman who underwent bariatric procedure followed by liver transplantation[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

    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]

  • Cardiomyopathy

    Palpitations are feelings that your heart is skipping a beat, fluttering or beating too hard or too fast. ARVD usually affects teens or young adults.[heart.org] Symptoms includes fainting after physical activity and palpitations (feelings that your heart is skipping a beat, fluttering, or beating too hard or too fast).[marshfieldclinic.org] Palpitation Palpitation is an uncomfortable awareness of the heart beat.

  • 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]
