1,160 Possible Causes for Hyperkalemia, Kidney Disease, Tachycardia

  • Acute Renal Failure

    Kidney failure - chronic; Renal failure - chronic; Chronic renal insufficiency; Chronic kidney failure; Chronic renal failure Chronic kidney disease is the slow loss of kidney[mountsinai.org] Her hyperkalemia and kidney failure resolved after the surgery.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] ., history of vomiting, diarrhea, diuretic overuse, hemorrhage, burns) Weight loss, orthostatic hypotension and tachycardia Thirst and reduced fluid intake Poor skin turgor[aafp.org]

  • Acidosis

    Progression of kidney disease: Metabolic acidosis can make your kidney disease worse. Exactly how this happens is not clear.[kidney.org] She responded to thiazide diuretics and her BP is well controlled, and acidosis and hyperkalemia are corrected.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Cardiac telemetry monitoring showed a narrow complex sinus tachycardia.[calpoison.org]

  • Metabolic Acidosis

    The prevention or correction of chronic metabolic acidosis has been found to slow progression of chronic kidney disease.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] She responded to thiazide diuretics and her BP is well controlled, and acidosis and hyperkalemia are corrected.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Commonest signs were tachycardia (100%) and moaning (73%). At presentation 52% were in cardiogenic shock.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Hyperkalemia

    PURPOSE OF REVIEW: Patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) have an increased risk of hyperkalemia that increases both short-term and long-term mortality.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Therefore, insulin deficiency can cause hyperkalemia.[en.wikipedia.org] Initial potassium level was 10 mEq/L; ventricular tachycardia was observed and treated.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Hypokalemia

    Diuretic use and gastrointestinal losses are common causes of hypokalemia, whereas kidney disease, hyperglycemia, and medication use are common causes of hyperkalemia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] A 38-year-old obese woman presented with recurrent polymorphic ventricular tachycardia secondary to persistent hypokalemia necessitating more than 40 DC shocks.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] disease, exacerbate systemic hypertension, and increase mortality.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Electrolyte Imbalance

    Medications High blood pressure makes chronic kidney disease more likely. And kidney disease can affect your blood pressure.[webmd.com] Hyponatremia, hyperkalemia, dehydration, and metabolic acidosis are the primary findings that permit the diagnosis of CAH.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Ventricular tachycardia, ventricular fibrillation and torsade de pointes.[ecgwaves.com]

  • Digitalis Toxicity

    Elderly patients and those with liver or kidney disease are at esp. high risk because their absorption, metabolism, and excretion rates are unpredictable.[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com] Abstract Cardiac glycoside toxicity is frequently associated with hyperkalemia and dysrhythmias in patients with renal insufficiency.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] , junctional tachycardia, and bidirectional ventricular tachycardia are common.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Sickle Cell Disease

    Care should be taken to avoid indiscriminate use of potassium supplements in IV fluids, and vigilance is needed when treating patients with medications that can cause hyperkalemia[clinicaladvisor.com] […] of abdominal pain) Previous hemoglobin levels and previous transfusions Vaccination Consanguinity, family history of similar episodes Physical Vital signs Hypotension and tachycardia[web.archive.org] Treatments that may be needed to manage complications of sickle cell disease include: Dialysis or kidney transplant for kidney disease Counseling for psychological complications[medlineplus.gov]

  • Chronic Kidney Insufficiency

    How is chronic kidney disease diagnosed?[patient.info] Manage the sequelae of ACRF (hyperkalemia, uremia and volume overload can be life-threatening).[clinicaladvisor.com] […] appetite Lethargy Fatigue Congestive heart failure Metabolic acidosis High blood potassium ( hyperkalemia ) Fatal heart rhythm disturbances (arrhythmias) including ventricular tachycardia[medicinenet.com]

  • Status Epilepticus

    A 65-year-old Japanese man with advanced chronic kidney disease (CKD) developed acute-onset type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1D) that was associated with severe acute kidney injury[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Caution is required, however, because ongoing status epilepticus may cause hyperkalemia after 20-30 minutes.[emcrit.org] PATIENT PRESENTATION: We describe a 5-month-old girl with Dravet syndrome who presented with paroxysmal supraventricular tachycardia during status epilepticus.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
