284 Possible Causes for Embolism of Arteries of the Extremities, P Wave Absent

  • Atrial Fibrillation

    A cool or cold pulseless extremity may suggest peripheral embolization, and assessment of peripheral pulses may lead to the diagnosis of peripheral arterial disease or diminished[emedicine.medscape.com] P waves are absent and replaced by irregular electrical activity. The ventricular rate is irregular and chaotic.[web.archive.org] P waves if arrhythmia is not captured on ECG then Holter monitoring in the outpatient setting these patients are hemodynamically stable telemitry in the inpatient setting[medbullets.com]

  • Atrial Arrhythmia

    waves absent; oscillating baseline f (fibrillation) waves Atrial rate 350-600 beats/min Irregular ventricular rhythm Ventricular rate 100-180 beats/min As a general rule the[bmj.com] This chaotic electrical activity results in a chaotic wave form between the QRS complexes. P waves are absent. They are replaced by lower case "f" waves.[practicalclinicalskills.com] Regular ventricular rhythm Ventricular rate typically 150 beats/min (with 2:1 atrioventricular block) 4:1 is also common (3:1 and 1:1 block uncommon) Atrial fibrillation P[bmj.com]

  • Hyperkalemia

    Role of inducing K loss via the GI tract in the management of hyperkalemia Setting Recommendations Hyperkalemia with severe ECG changes (e.g. absent P waves, wide QRS complex[doi.org] Example of bradycardia with absent or flattened p waves in hyperkalemia. Care of Dr. Smith’s ECG blog.[emergencymedicinecases.com] Peaked T waves. Example 5 Hyperkalaemia: Broad complex rhythm with atypical LBBB morphology. Left axis deviation. Absent P waves.[lifeinthefastlane.com]

  • Coronary Artery Disease

    Embolic protection devices may prove useful, because microembolization to the renal circulation or to visceral and lower-extremity arteries is a real concern.[doi.org]

  • Cardiomyopathy

    BACKGROUND: Coronary artery fistula, first described by Krause in 1865, is an abnormal communication between the coronary artery and one of the four chambers of the heart or one of the great vessels. The communications are often congenital but may also be acquired from trauma or invasive cardiovascular[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Myocardial Infarction

    Coronary Heart Disease A heart attack happens if the flow of oxygen-rich blood to a section of heart muscle suddenly becomes blocked and the heart can't get oxygen. Most heart attacks occur as a result of coronary heart disease (CHD). CHD is a condition in which a waxy substance called plaque builds up inside[…][web.archive.org]

  • Acute Myocardial Infarction

    Ventricular septal rupture (VSR) is a rare but fatal complication of acute myocardial infarction (AMI) with an associated mortality that ranges from 41% to 80%. The treatment consists of supplemental oxygenation, afterload reduction, intraaortic balloon pump, and surgical repair. In selected patients, extracorporeal[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Atrial Flutter

    Cases with thrombi in multiple cardiac chambers are rare. We report an extremely rare case in which thrombi were formed in all four cardiac chambers at the same time. A 55-year-old man presented with biventricular failure and liver dysfunction. A 12-lead ECG and an echocardiogram revealed an old anteroseptal[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Infective Endocarditis

    Risk of Embolization Systemic embolization occurs in 22% to 50% of cases of IE. 50,52,224–226 Emboli often involve major arterial beds, including the lungs, coronary arteries[doi.org] Emboli often involve major arterial beds, including the brain, lungs, coronary arteries, spleen, bowel, and extremities.[ahajournals.org] , spleen, bowel, and extremities.[doi.org]
