1,318 Possible Causes for Hyperkalemia, Hypotension

  • Adrenal Insufficiency

    Hyperkalemia, low cortisol and high adrenocorticotropic hormone levels were found, indicating adrenal insufficiency.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Unexplained hypotension may be a manifestation of an adrenal insufficient state in patients with a history of corticosteroid therapy on hemodialysis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The patient presented after birth with cardiopulmonary instability, hyponatremia, hyperkalemia, hypoglycemia and metabolic acidosis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Heat Stroke

    Laboratory studies with dogs have demonstrated heat stroke-induced sinoatrial node dysfunction in the setting of hyperkalemia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] In addition, pulmonary edema, coma, hypotension, and hyperpyrexia occurred.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The associated hyperkalemia and metabolic acidosis may lead to an acute renal, cardiac, and hemostatic failure.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Addisonian Crisis

    In a patient who developed clinical signs of intracranial hypertension, bilateral papilledema and diplopia, in association with mild hypotension, hyponatremia and hyperkalemia[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] On investigation the cause of hypotension was diagnosed as acute adrenocortical insufficiency, secondary to adrenal tuberculosis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The team will need to treat the hyperkalemia and initiate hydrocortisone therapy.[emsimcases.com]

  • Addison's Disease

    Preparation of such a patient for surgery should include treatment of hypovolemia, hyperkalemia, and hyponatremia .[openanesthesia.org] […] of hypotension in these individuals.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] During admission for evaluation of hypotension, she was also detected to have hyponatremia. Hyponatremia and hypotension failed to improve despite fluid resuscitation.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Accidental Hypothermia

    Electrolyte abnormalities such as hyperkalemia and hypocalcemia that may worsen when patients are rewarmed contribute to the risk of arrhythmias.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] A potential cause of such emergent issues as cardiac arrhythmias, hypotension, and fluid and electrolyte shifts, accidental hypothermia can be deadly, is common among trauma[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] the remarkable salvageability of patients suffering prolonged cardiac arrest caused by accidental hypothermia, particularly in the absence of asphyxia, trauma, or severe hyperkalemia[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Cardiac Arrest

    CONCLUSIONS Our case illustrates that the FFK measurement is helpful for identifying ECD-related hyperkalemia and for providing advance warning of PRCA.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] A 62-year-old woman with renal cell carcinoma (RCC) experienced deteriorating hypotension and bradycardia during radical nephrectomy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] When the inferior vena cava was compressed, the PetCO2 level decreased abruptly from 30 to 10 mmHg, followed by a decrease in SpO2 and the development of hypotension.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Metabolic Acidosis

    She responded to thiazide diuretics and her BP is well controlled, and acidosis and hyperkalemia are corrected.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Clinical presentation is heterogeneous, usually characterised by repetitive vomiting and diarrhoea, lethargy, failure to thrive until to dehydration with hypotension and shock[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] However, a change in consciousness and hypotension subsequently developed 6h later, combined with severe metabolic acidosis (pH7.16), high anion gap (25.5), and high osmolal[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Malignant Hyperthermia

    Muscle rigidity, hypercarbia, and hyperkalemia were not observed.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] After 10 minutes of halothane anesthesia, the patient became tachycardic, hypotensive, hypoxemic, and hyperthermic, and the halothane was discontinued.[newswise.com] Pathologic response in MH include increase in oxygen consumption, increase in endtidal CO2, tachycardia, hyperthermia, hyperkalemia and muscle rigidity.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Adrenal Hemorrhage

    […] happen in the postoperative period.30 Routine laboratory test results that may suggest the diagnosis of adrenal hemorrhage are a sudden drop in hematocrit, hyponatremia, hyperkalemia[mitchmedical.us] Adrenal crisis from bilateral adrenal hemorrhage was diagnosed by a low serum cortisol level during hypotension and bilateral hyperdense oval masses in each of the adrenal[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] In terms of laboratory tests, hyponatremia, hyperkalemia, and a decrease in hematocrit were noted in the majority of the cases.[healio.com]

  • Acidosis

    She responded to thiazide diuretics and her BP is well controlled, and acidosis and hyperkalemia are corrected.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Incidence of hypotension did not differ between groups (54.5% vs. 61.9%, p   .63).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] This resulted in progressive fetal hypoxaemia, acidosis and hypotension.[dictionary.cambridge.org]
