273 Possible Causes for Hypernatremia, Orthostatic Hypotension

  • Acute Gastroenteritis

    Results: AGE constituted 18% of the total admissions. 22% had Hyponatremia, 71.5% had Isonatremia and 6.5% had Hypernatremia.[] Summary of results in patients with hypernatremia at baseline.[] Hypernatremia and hyponatremia: current understanding and management. Clinical Pediatric Emergency Medicine 2009;10(4):272-8. 2. Holliday MA, Segar WE.[]

  • Adrenal Insufficiency

    Orthostatic hypotension and salt craving can be prominent in primary insufficiency due to aldosterone deficiency leading to profound volume depletion.[] Its release will lead to hypernatremia and hypokalemia, once stimulated by ACTH, elevated potassium levels, and/or the renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system (RAAS).[] Depending on its severity, the latter may manifest in form of orthostatic hypotension or prolonged dizziness and syncopes.[]

  • Dehydration

    We present the case of a full-term newborn who was fed solely breast milk and developed severe dehydration and hypernatremia.[] Cardiovascular findings include orthostatic hypotension, decreased cardiovascular pressure, and a rapid, weak pulse.[] These findings are compatible with previously described CNS pathologic findings in hypernatremia.[]

  • Acute Alcohol Intoxication

    Take the patient’s blood pressure to ascertain if there are any orthostatic changes, hypotension , or tachycardia .[] Hypernatremia was present in five children.[] CARDIOVASCULAR: Hypotension (especially orthostatic) from ethanol induced venodilation, tachycardia, volume depletion, new onset atrial and ventricular tachyarrhythmias (e.g[]

  • Conn Syndrome

    […] a cause of primary hyperaldosteronism and is the result of an aldosterone producing adenoma (APA) aldosterone secretion,supressed renin activity, hypernatremia, HTN hypokalemia[] hypotension, that can be quite difficult to treat.[] :D The N's are for sodium - Hypernatremia! The C makes a K for potassium, which is less than the number of N's, therefore, hypokalemia! Also, Na is sodium.[]

  • Loop Diuretic

    Torsemide has infrequent, mild, and transient adverse effects; among the most common are orthostatic hypotension, fatigue, dizziness, and nervousness.[] Edit: Also, isn't sweating inducing hypERnatremia? (you're losing more water than salt).[] Adverse Reactions * CV: Hypovolemia and hypotension: rapid diuresis, especially in the patients receiving other hypotensive agents, may result in severe orthostatic hypotension[]

  • Mannitol

    . • With initial doses, warn patient to change positions slowly, especially when rising from lying or sitting position, to prevent dizziness from orthostatic hypotension.[] Hypokalemia and hypernatremia may also occurs. Hypernatremia is due to excess loss of water compared to sodium.[] Hypotension 1 3 Terminated Treatment Elevated Intracranial Pressure / Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) 1 3 Terminated Treatment Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) 1 3 Unknown Status[]

  • Cyclobenzaprine

    CV: Tachycardia, syncope, palpitation, vasodilation, chest pain, orthostatic hypotension, dyspnea; with high doses, possibility of severe arrhythmias.[] Laboratory studies revealed hypernatremia (154 mEq/L) and lactic acidosis (arterial pH 7.27, anion gap 20, lactate level 10.1 mmol/L).[]

  • Laxative Abuse

    As of 10 days ago I was taking 9 laxatives every other day, that doesn’t seem a lot in comparison to my past but not so long ago I was diagnosed with hypokalaemia, hypernatremia[] […] bowel syndrome Additional symptoms: Abdominal pain, rectal pain, nausea, vomiting, weight loss, malaise, muscle weakness Additional signs: Hypokalemia, hyperphosphatemia, hypernatremia[]

  • Nonsteroidal Antiinflammatory Drug

    Orthostatic Hypotension Orthostatic hypotension symptoms include: LightheadednessWeaknessBlurred vision Syncope or passing out Causes of...[] Hypernatremia was found in 3% and was associated with a mean weight loss. Postrace serum sodium concentration varied inversely with percent weight change.[]
