1,007 Possible Causes for Electrocardiogram Change, Giddiness and Lightheadedness, Tachycardia during Pain Episodes

  • Bradyarrhythmia

    Other symptoms experienced during an episode of SVT include dizziness, shortness of breath, chest pain, and light-headedness.[washingtonhra.com] Supraventricular tachycardias are generally not life-threatening, but their symptoms can be dehabilitating to patients.[washingtonhra.com]

  • Cardiac Arrhythmia

    Holter monitoring - This test is essentially a portable electrocardiogram, which records changes in heart rhythm as a person goes about daily activities.[midmichigan.org] A particularly dangerous arrhythmia, polymorphic ventricular tachycardia (in which there is a continually changing morphology of the electrocardiogram complexes), is probably[scholarpedia.org] Fig. 3 The "changed depolarization" (CD) pattern as an initiating mode of Torsade de Pointes (TdP).[dx.doi.org]

  • Aortic Valve Stenosis

    Additional tests may include an MRI, an exercise stress test, electrocardiogram (ECG/EKG), and diagnostic cardiac catheterization.[mainlinehealth.org] An electrocardiogram (ECG) is necessary since it depicts arrhythmias, ischemic changes, and LVH.[symptoma.com] Treatment for mild aortic valve stenosis may include some combination of dietary change along with medication and ongoing monitoring by your primary care physician.[mainlinehealth.org]

  • Hypoxia

    Despite technological advances, hypoxia remains a concern in aviation. Hypoxia can present with a vast array of symptoms that are unique to each aviator. Military aviators undergo hypoxia awareness trainings to learn their unique constellation of hypoxia symptoms. This case report describes a military aviator who[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Hypokalemia

    Oral replacement is preferred except when there is no functioning bowel or in the setting of electrocardiogram changes, neurologic symptoms, cardiac ischemia, or digitalis[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Treatments involve inducing potassium loss. 6-8 Electrocardiogram changes in hyperkalemia include a tall peaked T wave.[acls.com] Careful monitoring of electrocardiogram changes and muscle weakness in hyperkalemia is important to determine its functional consequences.[acls.com]

  • Electrolytes Abnormal

    This EKG can be used to evaluate for ischemic changes, but also can give the provider some early insight into the patient’s electrolyte levels.[cdemcurriculum.com] An electrocardiogram (EKG) , an electrical tracing of your heart, may also be useful to check for any irregular heartbeats, rhythms, or EKG changes brought on by electrolyte[healthline.com] Author: Sharon Bord, MD, FACEP Editor: Kenny Banh, MD Introduction An electrocardiogram(EKG) is often times obtained on patients shortly after they arrive in the emergency[cdemcurriculum.com]

We present the clinical findings, laboratory results, and imaging studies in a woman with hypopituitarism, diabetes insipidus, and a palsy of cranial nerve VI, associated with cocaine-induced destruction of her nasal and paranasal[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
