82 Possible Causes for Hypercapnia, Myoclonic Jerking

  • Hypercapnia

    Hypercapnia can induce increased cardiac output, an elevation in arterial blood pressure, and a propensity toward arrhythmias . [4] [5] Hypercapnia may increase pulmonary[en.wikipedia.org] However, the correction of hypoxia overrides strategies to avert oxygen-related hypercapnia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Because of the relationship between hypoxia and hypercapnia, we investigated the effect of hypercapnia on the HIF pathway.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Metabolic Alkalosis

    On the fourth day he developed further deterioration in level of consciousness and developed myoclonic jerks, tetany and seizures.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Chloride-wasting Diarrhea Villous adenoma of colon Renal Causes Diuretic use ( Urine Chloride 10 meq/L) Poorly reabsorbable anion Carbenicillin Penicillin Sulfate Phsophate Post-Hypercapnia[fpnotebook.com] Non surgical casuses of chloride sensitive metabolic alkalosis include; diuretics (thiazides, loop, metolazone) and upon the relief of chronic hypercapnia.[surgstudent.org]

  • Respiratory Acidosis

    Signs include gait disturbance, tremor, blunted deep tendon reflexes, myoclonic jerks, asterixis, and papilledema.[merckmanuals.com] Moderate hypercapnia had no effect on these parameters.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] jerks Bounding pulse Flapping tremor Gait disturbance Peripheral edema Constricted pupils Shortness of breath Low blood pressure Transient psychosis Abnormal heart rhythm[hxbenefit.com]

  • Acidosis

    Frank papilledema (pseudotumor cerebri) and motor disturbances (myoclonic jerks, flapping tremor, and seizures).[slideshare.net] Patients receiving midazolam had a more than doubled risk of respiratory depression as mirrored by hypercapnia and acidosis, but not hypoxemia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Alveolar hypoventilation leads to an increased PaCO 2 (ie, hypercapnia).[emedicine.medscape.com]

  • Myxedema Coma

    The patient was admitted to the medicine floor for investigation of myoclonic jerks. About 3 h later, the patient was noted to be stuporous and non-verbalizing.[termedia.pl] Low blood sugar , low blood pressure , hyponatremia , hypercapnia , hypoxia, slowed heart rate , and hypoventilation may also occur. [1] Myxedema , although included in the[en.wikipedia.org] Decreased ventilation Hypoxemia and hypercapnia with no real drive Macroglossia can occur, which doesn't help matters May take 3-6 months to fully recover Bradycardia Decreased[prezi.com]

  • Metabolic Encephalopathy

    Clinical findings include seizures, ataxia, alopecia and dermatitis with atypical findings of myoclonic jerks, neuropathy and spastic paraparesis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] metabolic encephalopathy are: Physiologic: Glucose, oxygen or metabolic cofactors (which are usually vitamin-derived) deficits, manifested by hypoxia, hypoglycemia, ischemia, hypercapnia[symptoma.com] Synchronous myoclonic jerks in all limbs can be seen in any patient who is slipping in and out of a drowsy sleep—also known as sleep-onset myoclonus .[aneskey.com]

  • Status Epilepticus

    Myoclonic jerks ceased completely and electroencephalogram showed no epileptiform discharges 2 days after VPA treatment onset, with recovery of baseline neurological status[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Systemic changes requiring medical intervention include hypoxia, hypercapnia, hypoglycemia, metabolic acidosis, and other electrolyte disturbances.[aafp.org] Seizures continued with frequent myoclonic jerks localized on the face and upper arms. EEG showed seizure activity with spikes on rhythmic continuous waves.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Extrapulmonary Alveolar Hypoventilation

    Signs include tremor, myoclonic jerks, and asterixis. Diagnosis is clinical and with ABG and serum electrolyte measurements.[msdmanuals.com] hypercapnia.[annalsofintensivecare.springeropen.com] V/Q dysfunction mechanisms in the pulmonary parenchyma may cause hypoxemia and/or hypercapnia.[xlung.net]

  • Acute Respiratory Acidosis

    Signs include tremor, myoclonic jerks, and asterixis. Diagnosis is clinical and with ABG and serum electrolyte measurements.[msdmanuals.com] The defense of pH in groups I and IA was greater than acute hypercapnia in normal man but less than chronic stable hypercapnia ( P 0.05).[annals.org] Frank papilledema (pseudotumor cerebri) and motor disturbances (myoclonic jerks, flapping tremor, and seizures).[slideshare.net]

  • Mitochondrial Disease

    Seizures began at 21/2 years with arm stiffness, then clusters of right-sided facial twitching and weakness, then staring spells, eye twitching, and myoclonic jerks.[bcmj.org] Twenty-four patients showed decreased ventilatory drive in response to hypoxia and/or hypercapnia that was not considered due to weakness of the intrinsic muscles of respiration[aasmnet.org] Twenty-four patients showed depressed ventilatory drive in response to hypoxia and/or hypercapnia that investigators did not attribute to weakness of the intrinsic muscles[aasmnet.org]
