1,368 Possible Causes for Hypokalemia, Hypotension

  • Adrenal Insufficiency

    Patients receiving fludrocortisone acetate may experience gastrointestinal upset, edema, hypertension, hypokalemia, insomnia, and excitability.[pharmacytimes.com] KEYWORDS: Adrenal insufficiency; corticosteroid therapy; hypotension; nocturnal home hemodialysis[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Excess aldosterone results in sodium retention, hypokalemia , and alkalosis. Aldosterone deficiency results in sodium loss, hyperkalemia, and acidosis.[emedicine.com]

  • Metabolic Alkalosis

    Hypokalemia seen with heat stress is secondary to sweat as well as renal potassium wasting.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Abstract We describe a case of medication induced metabolic alkalosis in a maintenance dialysis patient who developed severe hypotension while undergoing a lactate hemofiltration[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] On this admission, the patient had recurrent bouts of vomiting induced by psychiatric eating disorder and showed severe volume depletion with hypotension, azotemia and metabolic[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Loop Diuretic

    […] severe hypokalemia or other electrolyte abnormalities were observed between the groups.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] serum PTH was appropriately twofold greater than in those not taking hypotensive medication.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Bumetanide has demonstrated an adverse-reaction profile similar to that of furosemide, although the incidence of hypochloremia and hypokalemia is greater with bumetanide.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Renal Salt-Wasting Syndrome

    In 3 patients, fludrocortisone treatment was complicated by hypokalemia, and in 1 patient by hypertension, which necessitated a dose reduction or brief cessation of therapy[pediatrics.aappublications.org] Seven of seventy patients treated with cisplatin over 18 months developed salt-wasting nephropathy and orthostatic hypotension.[annals.org] The proximal site of salt transport defect has been suggested by the absence of hyperreninemia and hypokalemia, which would be a distinguishing feature of Bartter’s syndrome[karger.com]

  • Organophosphate Poisoning

    Other laboratory findings include the following: Leukocytosis Hemoconcentration Metabolic and/or respiratory acidosis Hyperglycemia Hypokalemia Hypomagnesemia Elevated troponin[emedicine.medscape.com] RESULTS: The incidence of hypotension in patients with prolonged QTc intervals was higher than that in the patients with normal QTc intervals (P   0.019).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] A 19-year-old man with an alleged history of suicidal ingestion of a pesticide presented with drowsiness and was found to have constricted pupils, hypotension and bradycardia[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Beta2-Adrenergic Agonist

    Beta agonist medications may produce significant hypokalemia in some patients, which has the potential to produce adverse cardiovascular effects.[perforomisthcp.com] […] like buspirone, trazodone, nefazodone, etoperidone, and mepiprazole antagonize 1-adrenergic receptors as well, which contributes to their side effects such as orthostatic hypotension[walmart.com] The findings of tachycardia, hypotension with a wide pulse pressure, tremor, and hypokalemia ...[mhmedical.com]

  • Diabetic Ketotic Coma

    […] also eliminates ketone bodies (2) insulin – turn off gluconeogenesis/glycogenolysis [K ] must be carefully monitored, since insulin causes K to enter cells – hyperkalemia Þ hypokalemia[d3jonline.tripod.com] The major causes of death are circulatory collapse, hypokalemia, infection, and cerebral edema.[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com] Hypotension also results in impaired tissue perfusion.[emedicine.medscape.com]

  • Theophylline

    Abstract Metabolic and electrolyte abnormalities, including hypokalemia, hyperglycemia and lactic acidosis, are associated with theophylline overdose.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] In overdose, it causes hypotension, bradycardia and drowsiness.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Although his peak theophylline concentration was 157 mumol/L (28.2 micrograms/mL), it was associated with significant leukocytosis, hypokalemia, hypomagnesemia, hypophosphatemia[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Acute Liver Failure

    Also, severe electrolye abnormalities (hyponatremia, hypophosphatemia, hypokalemia, hypomagnesemia, also metabolic acidosis). Patients often need CVVH. 5.[errolozdalga.com] Clinical examination showed an extensive coagulation disorder, diffuse hematomas, hypotension and tachypnea.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Correction of hypokalemia is essential as hypokalemia increases the kidneys' ammonia production, potentially exacerbating encephalopathy.[en.wikipedia.org]

  • Tachyarrhythmia

    Also correct for hypokalemia and hypocalcemia.[openanesthesia.org] One patient in the landiolol group showed hypotension and bradycardia, without serious consequences.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Anatomical and clinical aspects, with major alterations (Vth degree hepatomegaly, polyserositis, peripheral edema, tachyarrhythmic heart contractions, hypotension, pallor[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
