59 Possible Causes for Guillain-Barré Syndrome, Respiratory Alkalosis, Tachycardia

  • Rabies

    Overlap of pathology in paralytic rabies and axonal Guillain-Barré syndrome. Ann Neurol. 2005;57:768–72. CrossRef PubMed Google Scholar 15. Asbury AK, Cornblath DR.[doi.org] He had tachycardia (128 beats/min) and hypertension (148/99 mmHg) but no fever; his respiratory rate and oxygen saturation level were normal.[cdc.gov] The paralysis begins in the bitten limb in many cases, spreads rapidly and symmetrically and may be misdiagnosed as Guillain-Barré syndrome.[patient.info]

  • Respiratory Acidosis

    Electromyography (EMG) and measurement of nerve conduction velocity (NCV) are useful in diagnosing neuromuscular disorders (eg, myasthenia gravis, Guillain-Barré syndrome,[emedicine.com] Tachycardia develops early because the sympathetic nervous system is stimulated, resulting in the release of catecholamines, epinephrine , and norepinephrine , in an attempt[nurseslabs.com] alkalosis : hyper ventilation, rapid rate of breathing, causes too much carbon dioxide to be exhaled and the ph of the body rises. the cardinal sign of respiratory alkalosis[allnurses.com]

  • Acidosis

    Cardiac telemetry monitoring showed a narrow complex sinus tachycardia.[calpoison.org] […] patients who have respiratory alkalosis, the tidal volume and/or respiratory rate may need to be decreased.[slideshare.net] Electromyography (EMG) and measurement of nerve conduction velocity (NCV) are useful in diagnosing neuromuscular disorders (eg, myasthenia gravis, Guillain-Barré syndrome,[emedicine.com]

  • Heat Stroke

    GuillainBarré syndrome after heat stroke. J Neurol Neurosurg Psychiatry 1999 ; 66 : 408 34 Saissy JM.[bja.oxfordjournals.org] Fever has been related to polymorphic ventricular tachycardia particularly in children; nevertheless, prevalence is higher within males in their fourth to fifth decade.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Tachycardia, tachypnea, and normotension are common in heatstroke. Temperature also should be measured in the initial survey.[aafp.org]

  • Anxiety Disorder

    Definition (NCI_CTCAE) A disorder characterized by apprehension of danger and dread accompanied by restlessness, tension, tachycardia, and dyspnea unattached to a clearly[fpnotebook.com] syndrome).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] A combination of these disorders can bring about physical symptoms like tachycardia and shakiness.[symptoma.com]

  • Urinary Tract Infection

    Recurrent Guillain-Barré syndrome (GBS) is a rare, immune-mediated disease of the peripheral nervous system.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Symptoms include of this dangerous complication include: An abnormally rapid heart rate ( tachycardia ) High fever or hypothermia (body temperatures below 95 degrees) Difficulty[verywell.com] The presence of delirium, urinary retention or incontinence, metabolic acidosis or respiratory alkalosis may indicate a symptomatic UTI in this group.[doi.org]

  • Myasthenic Crisis

    There were no convincing responses in the patients with Guillain Barré Syndrome.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] There is bradycardia in cholinergic crisis while tachycardia in myasthenic crisis. Secretions are normal in myasthenic crisis while increased in cholinergic crisis.[allmedicalstuff.com] This leads to baseline respiratory alkalosis, leaving less reserve in myasthenic crisis.[westjem.com]

  • Chronic Respiratory Acidosis

    […] documented signs / symptoms of: SOB (shortness of breath) Delirium and/or anxiety Syncope Use of accessory muscles / poor air movement Distended neck veins / peripheral edema Tachycardia[mmplusinc.com] During acute exacerbation, emphysema/COPD will cause respiratory alkalosis due to hyperventilation.[forums.studentdoctor.net] Electromyography (EMG) and measurement of nerve conduction velocity (NCV) are useful in diagnosing neuromuscular disorders (eg, myasthenia gravis, Guillain-Barré syndrome,[emedicine.medscape.com]

  • Acute Respiratory Acidosis

    Electromyography (EMG) and measurement of nerve conduction velocity (NCV) are useful in diagnosing neuromuscular disorders (eg, myasthenia gravis, Guillain-Barré syndrome,[emedicine.medscape.com] […] documented signs / symptoms of: SOB (shortness of breath) Delirium and/or anxiety Syncope Use of accessory muscles / poor air movement Distended neck veins / peripheral edema Tachycardia[mmplusinc.com] […] patients who have respiratory alkalosis, the tidal volume and/or respiratory rate may need to be decreased.[slideshare.net]

  • Anticholinergic Toxicity

    In differential diagnosis, botulism, GuillainBarré syndrome and myasthenia gravis were considered, as well as cerebral haematoma because of a cranial injury a week before[journals.lww.com] Tachycardia, hyperthermia, mydriasis and urinary retention are effects caused by inhibition of peripheral receptors, whereas hallucinations, seizure, and even coma might be[symptoma.com] alkalosis Do not give with physostigmine First check an EKG for QRS prolongation, then treat with sodium bicarbonate in TCA overdose Potassium iodide Radioactive iodine ([medbullets.com]
