1,236 Possible Causes for Hyperkalemia, Hypotension, Sweating

  • Hypokalemia

    Abstract Hypokalemia and hyperkalemia are common electrolyte disorders caused by changes in potassium intake, altered excretion, or transcellular shifts.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Intravenous fluid boluses of normal saline (10.5 L in about 24 h) and vasopressors were started with rapid correction of hypotension.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Causes Hypokalemia always occurs as a result of excessive loss of potassium through the urine, sweat or stool.[rarediseases.org]

  • Malaria

    CASE REPORT: A 76-year-old male presented with fever, hypotension, tachycardia, and a urinalysis consistent with a urinary tract infection.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] in parts of asia, africa, central and south america, oceania, and certain caribbean islands; characterized by extreme exhaustion associated with paroxysms of high fever, sweating[icd9data.com] Postural hypotension may be secondary to autonomic dysfunction.[doi.org]

  • Malignant Hyperthermia

    Muscle rigidity, hypercarbia, and hyperkalemia were not observed.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] ., central core disease and multiminicore disease ) also have MH susceptibility. 0003236 Hypotension Low blood pressure 0002615 Mixed respiratory and metabolic acidosis 0005967[rarediseases.info.nih.gov] Clinical manifestations include: CO 2 increase, tachycardia, haemodynamic instability, metabolic and respiratory acidosis, profuse sweating, hyperpyrexia, CPK increase, myoglobinuria[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 body cools itself by sweating and allowing that sweat to evaporate.[medicinenet.com]

  • Heat Exhaustion

    Despite initial presentations with severe hyperthermia, tachycardia and hypotension, only one patient with heat stroke had myocardial ischemia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] , and low air humidity which can allow sweat to evaporate.[symptoma.com] On examination, patients appear tired, are usually sweaty and tachycardic, and may have orthostatic hypotension. Mental status is intact, unlike in heatstroke.[merckmanuals.com]

  • Hypoglycemia

    Spurious hypoglycemia, hyperkalemia and hypoxemia in chronic hemolytic anemia. Isr J Med Sci. 1990 Nov. 26(11):606-10. [Medline]. Jokinen CH, Swaim WR, Nuttall FQ.[emedicine.com] In AN various cardiac complications may occur: hypotension, bradycardia, life-threatening ventricular arrhythmias, pericardial effusion, reduction of left ventricular mass[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Severe hypoglycemia eventually lead to glucose deprivation of the central nervous system resulting in hunger; sweating; paresthesia; impaired mental function; seizures; coma[icd9data.com]

  • Orthostatic Hypotension

    […] depletion Electrolytes Electrolyte abnormalities from vomiting or diarrhea, or as cause of cardiac conduction abnormalities; clues to adrenal insufficiency (hyponatremia, hyperkalemia[aafp.org] The drop in blood pressure may be sudden (vasovagal orthostatic hypotension), within 3 minutes (classic orthostatic hypotension) or gradual (delayed orthostatic hypotension[en.wikipedia.org] Abnormalities of urination, salivation, sweating, and defecation can occur, though these are less common in PAF than in AAN.[emedicine.medscape.com]

  • Acute Kidney Failure

    Her hyperkalemia and kidney failure resolved after the surgery.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] by hypotension was similar in the two groups.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] –Hemorrhage Redistribution of extracellular fluid –Hypoalbuminemia –Nephrotic syndrome –Liver disease Vasodilation –Sepsis –Anaphylaxis Skin losses of fluids –Excessive sweating[pedsinreview.aappublications.org]

  • 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] Symptoms may include: Confusion Anxiety Easy fatigue Lethargy Shortness of breath Sleepiness Tremors (shaking) Warm and flushed skin Sweating The health care provider will[nlm.nih.gov]

  • Addisonian Crisis

    Aldosterone is the first-line defense against hyperkalemia.[emedicine.medscape.com] On investigation the cause of hypotension was diagnosed as acute adrenocortical insufficiency, secondary to adrenal tuberculosis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Patients may experience lightheadedness or dizziness, weakness, sweating, abdominal pain, nausea and vomiting, or even loss of consciousness.[endocrinesurgery.ucla.edu]
