49 Possible Causes for Generalized Slowing - Delta Waves

  • Hypoglycemia

    Anorexia nervosa (AN) is characterized by very low body mass index (BMI), related to obsessive fear of gaining weight, resulting in food restriction. In AN various cardiac complications may occur: hypotension, bradycardia, life-threatening ventricular arrhythmias, pericardial effusion, reduction of left ventricular[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Stroke

    Thalamic lesions generally produced focal or unilateral delta activity, but the slow activity varied in time of onset, amplitude and degree of focality 16.[scielo.br] In general, fast-growing tumors, such as glioblastoma multiforme or metastatic brain tumors, are associated with focal slow activity occurring in the delta frequency 16.[scielo.br] Studies suggested that thalamic deafferentation from the cortex rather than cortical deafferentation from below may be the slow wave mechanism 11,15,16.[scielo.br]

  • Hyponatremia

    Hyponatremia Other names Hyponatraemia, low blood sodium, hyponatræmia Sodium Specialty Internal medicine Symptoms Decreased ability to think, headaches, nausea, poor balance, confusion, seizures, coma [1] [2] Types Low volume, normal volume, high volume [3] Diagnostic method Serum sodium 135 mmol/L [2] Differential[…][en.wikipedia.org]

  • Alzheimer Disease

    Mild cognitive impairment (MCI) manifests as memory impairment in the absence of dementia and progresses to Alzheimer's disease (AD) at a rate of around 15% per annum, versus 1–2% in the general population. It thus constitutes a primary target for investigation of early markers of AD. Language deficits occur early[…][dx.doi.org]

  • Traumatic Brain Injury

Retrospective cohort analysis. Harborview Medical Center, Seattle, Washington (January 1, 1995, to December 31, 2005). Children 15[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Cushing Syndrome

    The main purpose was to assess the incidence and late outcome of Cushing's syndrome, particularly in Cushing's disease. Information for all patients diagnosed with Cushing's syndrome during an 11-yr period in Denmark was retrieved. The incidence was 1.2-1.7/million.yr (Cushing's disease), 0.6/million.yr (adrenal adenoma)[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Encephalitis

    Speech and general motor skills resulted slowed in their preparation/execution phases.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Electroencephalography showed a "slowed" pattern, with delta/theta waves mainly in the prefrontal cortex and in sensorimotor networks.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Meningoencephalitis

    Lancet Infect Dis. 2016 Nov;16(11):e261-e266. doi: 10.1016/S1473-3099(16)30162-1. Epub 2016 Sep 16.

  • Hydrocephalus

    Hydrocephalus is a buildup of fluid inside the skull that leads to brain swelling. Hydrocephalus means "water on the brain." Hydrocephalus is due to a problem with the flow of the fluid that surrounds the brain. This fluid is called the cerebrospinal fluid, or CSF. The fluid surrounds the brain and spinal cord and helps[…][nlm.nih.gov]
