42 Possible Causes for Dyspnea at Rest, Pulsus Alternans, Sudden Death

  • Congestive Heart Failure

    The basic pharmacology of PDE inhibitors is presented and the use of PDE-3 inhibitors for the treatment of heart failure causing an increase in sudden death is also reviewed[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Initially dyspnea occurs only at exertion. Later on orthopnea and paroxysmal nocturnal dyspnea also develop. Later on dyspnea occurs even at rest.[symptoma.com] alternans (alternating large and small pulse pressures) and a raised JVP.[patient.info]

  • Acute Myocardial Infarction

    We have recently experienced 2 cases of sudden death after bone fracture surgery, in which AMI and pulmonary thromboembolism were clinically suspected as causes of death.[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] Crossref PubMed Virmani R, Burke AP, Farb A, Sudden cardiac death, Cardiovasc Pathol, 2001;10:275–82.[uscjournal.com]

  • Myocardial Infarction

    The primary outcome was the composite of sudden death or death from ventricular tachyarrhythmia at 90 days (arrhythmic death).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Primary outcomes Sudden cardiac death.[doi.org] deathSudden death due to an aberrantly coursing left main coronary artery with its origin at the right sinus of Valsalva may present in athletes who are exercising.[emedicine.com]

  • Cardiomyopathy

    There are five useful clinical signs to establish the presence and severity of cardiomyopathy: general appearance (cachexia and dyspnea at rest indicate severe impairment)[clevelandclinicmeded.com] A thorough family history of juvenile sudden death, ventricular arrhythmias and ICD implants should always be sought.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] mitral valve cusp towards the septum LVOT pressure gradient via doppler echocardiography Provocation tests (see below) are obligatory if no obstruction is discernible at rest[amboss.com]

  • Heart Failure

    We report a case of sudden infant death because of clinically undiagnosed VSD in a seemingly healthy 16-day-old boy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] These include, among others: Dyspnea ( exertional-, dyspnea at rest, orthopnea, paroxysmal nocturnal dyspnea); Fatigue, inadequate exhaustion after stress, weakness, lethargy[flexikon.doccheck.com] alternans (alternating large and small pulse pressures) and a raised JVP.[patient.info]

  • Dilated Cardiomyopathy

    The patient presented with sudden arrhythmic death and survived with permanent anoxic brain injury.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] At presentation she had dyspnea at rest, orthopnea and paroxysmal nocturnal dyspnea.[doi.org] Pulsus alternans is an infrequent, complex pathophysiologic sign often associated with severe heart failure.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Acute Myocarditis

    death.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Case 1: A 48-years-old, previously healthy male patient admitted to our clinic with complaints of acute onset of rest dyspnea and orthopnea, started the day before.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The clinical course, however, varies from asymptomatic to sudden cardiac death.[symptoma.com]

  • Rheumatic Heart Disease

    The sudden, unexpected death in each of these patients resulted in their deaths all being reported to the coroner.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] (i) Symptoms of congestion or of limited cardiac output include easy fatigue, weakness, shortness of breath (dyspnea), cough, or chest discomfort at rest or with activity.[ssa.gov] death急死〈頓死〉、突然死 superior vena cava (SVC)上大静脈 supraventricular premature contraction(SVPC)上室期外収縮 supraventricular tachycardia (SVT)上室頻拍 symptom 症状 syncope意識消失、失神 systole[心[tokyo-med.ac.jp]

  • Secondary Cardiomyopathy

    Premature Or Sudden Death Sudden death is not as common in children with dilated cardiomyopathy.[childrenscardiomyopathy.org] Case presentation A 38-year-old Hispanic male presented with progressive dyspnea at rest since the morning, which became worse with exertion and lying flat.[bmcresnotes.biomedcentral.com] There are five useful clinical signs to establish the presence and severity of cardiomyopathy: general appearance (cachexia and dyspnea at rest indicate severe impairment)[clevelandclinicmeded.com]

  • Toxic Myocarditis

    There are five useful clinical signs to establish the presence and severity of cardiomyopathy: general appearance (cachexia and dyspnea at rest indicate severe impairment)[clevelandclinicmeded.com] Although sudden unexpected death in children and young people has been scarcely studied, a significant proportion (16%) of all sudden deaths and a considerable percentage[synapse.koreamed.org] There have been sudden deaths associated with exceptional physical exertion in patients with viral illnesses.[gpnotebook.co.uk]
