90 Possible Causes for Dyspnea, Short PR Interval

  • Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease

    MEASUREMENT OF DYSPNEA IN COPD Section: The two purposes of measuring dyspnea are: to differentiate between patients who have less dyspnea and those who have more dyspnea[dx.doi.org] What effect do these improvements in lung mechanics have on dyspnea?[dx.doi.org] The corollary of this is that any intervention that reduces end-expiratory lung volume will improve effort-displacement ratios and alleviate dyspnea.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Acute Myocardial Infarction

    PATIENT CONCERNS AND DIAGNOSES: A 77-year-old male presented to our hospital with a 4-day history of severe dizziness, mild chest tightness, and dyspnea.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] After 48h following the accident, the patient's condition rapidly deteriorated, with severe dyspnea at rest, tachycardia, and increasing chest pain.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Abstract A previously asymptomatic 53-year-old male presented 5 days after an acute anterior wall myocardial infarction, who was fibrinolytic naïve, with worsening dyspnea[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy

    Abstract A 57-year-old man with a history of hypertrophic cardiomyopathy diagnosed by echocardiography experienced atypical chest pain and dyspnea for 6 months.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] AHCM can occur with varied presentations such as chest pain, palpitations, dyspnea, syncope, atrial fibrillation, myocardial infarction, embolic events, ventricular fibrillation[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Patients present at all ages with chest pain, dyspnea, palpitations, and syncope.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Myocardial Infarction

    […] are also important causes of dyspnea.[clevelandclinicmeded.com] PATIENT CONCERNS: A 51-year-old man was admitted to our hospital with exertional dyspnea that he had experienced for half a year.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Dyspnea: a sensory experience. Lung 1990; 168:185-199. Evans KC.[clevelandclinicmeded.com]

  • Fabry Disease

    General physicians and cardiologists should consider the diagnosis of FD in patients with LVH, cardiomyopathy, and conduction abnormalities, including short PR intervals and[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] We present the case of a 60-year-old woman with symptoms of dyspnea, atypical chest pain and palpitations, in whom a transthoracic echocardiogram revealed an apical variant[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Pochis WT, Litzow JT, King BG, Kenny D (1994) Electrophysiologic findings in Fabry’s disease with a short PR interval. Am J Cardiol 74:203–204 PubMed Google Scholar 64.[doi.org]

  • Graves Disease

    We report a 17-year-old male patient who presented with chest pain, dyspnea, and tachycardia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] disease, type 2 diabetes mellitus, mitral valve prolapse, and Gilbert's disease was admitted with one month of progressive jaundice, fatigue, lightheadedness, and exertional dyspnea[casesjournal.biomedcentral.com]

  • Glycogen Storage Disease Type 2

    Dyspnea secondary to diaphragm or respiratory muscle weakness may also be observed.[symptoma.com] The electrocardiogram typically shows short PR intervals and tall QRS complexes; true Wolf-Parkinson-White syndrome has been reported in some patients.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Olson, A 62-year-old man with dyspnea, Respiratory Medicine Case Reports, 17, (50), (2016).[dx.doi.org]

  • Pheochromocytoma

    We describe a case of one of the largest documented pheochromocytomas resected in the United States, an 18-cm tumor in a patient who presented with exertional dyspnea, abdominal[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] PATIENT CONCERNS: A 14-year-old female student presented with cough, hemoptysis and dyspnea for one week was reported.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Abstract A 24-year-old woman at 38 weeks of gestation with no past medical history was transferred to our hospital because of acute onset of severe dyspnea.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Lown-Ganong-Levine Syndrome

    The PR interval is short. Click here for a more detailed ECG ECG 3. Short PR interval in a 7 years-old boy.[metealpaslan.com] Abstract Lown Ganong Levine (LGL) which is a preexcitation syndrome is defined with paroxysmal tachycardia, dyspnea, anxiety, angina, and the complaint of fatigue accompanied[scopemed.org] Common signs and symptoms include dyspnea, palpitations, presyncope, increased heart rate, atrial flutter, and episodic tachyarrhythmias.[visualdx.com]

  • Wolff-Parkinson-White Syndrome

    Abstract Wolff-Parkinson-White (WPW) syndrome is defined as the presence of an accessory atrioventricular pathway which is manifested as delta waves and short PR interval[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] is typically reserved for patients who experience ventricular pre-excitation and symptoms that are related to paroxysmal supraventricular tachycardia, such as chest pain, dyspnea[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Electrocardiography (ECG) of patients with WPW syndrome portrays a short PR interval and a wide QRS interval with a delta wave.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
