109 Possible Causes for Hyperkalemia, Short QT Interval

  • Primary Hyperparathyroidism

  • Digitalis Toxicity

    Cardiac glycoside toxicity is frequently associated with hyperkalemia and dysrhythmias in patients with renal insufficiency.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Her labs revealed digitalis toxicity and hyperkalemia. Actual lab values not available. With digitalis toxicity, hypokalemia and hyperkalemia are possible.[ecgguru.com] The major electrolytic complication in acute, massive digoxin poisoning is hyperkalemia. However, Hyperkalemia is seen in pediatric patients with acute toxicity.[symptoma.com]

  • Metabolic Acidosis

    She responded to thiazide diuretics and her BP is well controlled, and acidosis and hyperkalemia are corrected.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Correction of hyperkalemia leads to correction of metabolic acidosis in many patients, pointing to the central role of hyperkalemia in the pathogenesis of this acidosis.[emedicine.medscape.com] Pseudohypoaldosteronism (PHA) type II is an extremely rare disorder which presents with hypertension, hyperkalemia, and normal anion gap metabolic acidosis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Acidosis

    She responded to thiazide diuretics and her BP is well controlled, and acidosis and hyperkalemia are corrected.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Correction of hyperkalemia leads to correction of metabolic acidosis in many patients, pointing to the central role of hyperkalemia in the pathogenesis of this acidosis.[emedicine.medscape.com] Pseudohypoaldosteronism (PHA) type II is an extremely rare disorder which presents with hypertension, hyperkalemia, and normal anion gap metabolic acidosis.[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] An EKG may show peaked T waves or short QT interval indicating hyperkalemia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The team will need to treat the hyperkalemia and initiate hydrocortisone therapy.[emsimcases.com]

  • Cardiac Arrhythmia

    The probable cause of arrhythmia is succinylcholine-induced hyperkalemia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Idiopathic short QT interval: a new clinical syndrome? Cardiology. 2000; 94: 99–102 Brugada J , Brugada R , Brugada P.[escardio.org] While there is little doubt about the threat of lethal arrhythmias due to hyperkalemia, convincing evidence for the danger of low potassium dialysate and rapid or excess potassium[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Respiratory Acidosis

    CNS; HA, drowsy, restless, tremor, cofusion, disorientation - COMA (cerebral vasodilation, increased bloodflow to brain) & death -increased HR, lack of energy, weakness -hyperkalemia[quizlet.com] In addition, acidemia causes an extracellular shift of potassium, but respiratory acidosis rarely causes clinically significant hyperkalemia .[en.wikipedia.org] […] respiratory treatment (asthma) hold respiratory depression drugs (know the category of drugs used opiods, sedatives etc) ****Watch potassium levels that are 5.1 …remember in hyperkalemia[registerednursern.com]

  • Digoxin

    Laboratory workup was unremarkable, except for hyperkalemia (K 5.2 mEq/L) and mildly elevated troponin level 0.11 ng/mL (cut-off value 0.08).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The short QT interval, the “sagging” appearance in the inferior leads and the lack of voltage criteria for LVH indicates that this is digoxin effect rather than LVH.[lifeinthefastlane.com] As mentioned above, digoxin toxicity can cause hyperkalemia.[healio.com]

  • Digitalis

    Hyperkalemia may be associated with acute renal failure that subsequently precipitates digoxin toxicity. Chronic digoxin toxicity does not usually cause hyperkalemia.[emedicine.medscape.com] Clinical description Signs and symptoms of acute digitalis (digoxin or digitoxin) poisoning by ingestion include primarily gastrointestinal effects (nausea and vomiting), hyperkalemia[emergency.cdc.gov] In pediatric patients, hyperkalemia is usually a complication of acute toxicity rather than a cause; however, preexisting hyperkalemia increases the risk of morbidity and[emedicine.medscape.com]

  • Bifascicular Block

    Bifascicular block is an unusual manifestation of hyperkalemia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] (Level of Evidence: B)” Bifascicular block is an ECG finding that should be included along with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM), the Brugada pattern, long/short QT interval[ems12lead.com] To our knowledge, this is the first reported case in which such unusual electrocardiographic abnormalities due to hyperkalemia were demonstrated.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
