1,737 Possible Causes for Hypokalemia, Hypotension

  • Adrenal Insufficiency

    Patients receiving fludrocortisone acetate may experience gastrointestinal upset, edema, hypertension, hypokalemia, insomnia, and excitability.[pharmacytimes.com] Unexplained hypotension may be a manifestation of an adrenal insufficient state in patients with a history of corticosteroid therapy on hemodialysis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Excess aldosterone results in sodium retention, hypokalemia , and alkalosis. Aldosterone deficiency results in sodium loss, hyperkalemia, and acidosis.[emedicine.medscape.com]

  • Acute Gastroenteritis

    It is known that these patients are more susceptible to hypokalemia than normal individuals.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] extreme sleepiness, sunken fontanels, and fussiness in infants; irritability/confusion in adults; and dry mucous membranes, little urine to anuria, sunken eyes, tenting, hypotension[contemporaryclinic.pharmacytimes.com] hypokalemia.[omicsonline.org]

  • Cholera

    Hypokalemia: results from potassium loss in the stool. Hypokalemia develops only after the acidosis is corrected.[symptoma.com] He was admitted with severe hypotension and acute renal failure, but recovered with rapid rehydration. Vibrio cholerae O1 serotype Ogawa was isolated.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Low potassium levels (hypokalemia). People with cholera lose large quantities of minerals, including potassium, in their stools.[mayoclinic.org]

  • Heat Stroke

    […] confusional state (58.97%),coma (29.48%), seizure (33.33%),and vomiting (26.92%).Vital parameters were recorded and laboratory parameters revealed hypophosphatemia, hyponatremia, hypokalemia[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] In addition, pulmonary edema, coma, hypotension, and hyperpyrexia occurred.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] On admission, the common electrolyte disturbances were hypokalemia (71.2 %), hypophosphatemia (59.1 %), hyponatremia (53.0 %), hypocalcemia (51.5 %), and hypomagnesemia (34.9[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Metabolic Alkalosis

    Hypokalemia seen with heat stress is secondary to sweat as well as renal potassium wasting.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] We describe a case of medication induced metabolic alkalosis in a maintenance dialysis patient who developed severe hypotension while undergoing a lactate hemofiltration procedure[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]

  • Theophylline

    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]

  • Congestive Heart Failure

    In most cases, it is a result of diuretic therapy, which causes activation of the renin-angiotensin system, chloride depletion, increased distal sodium delivery, hypokalemia[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] After cardioversion, refractory hypotension and cardiopulmonary arrest occurred. An arterial blood gas analysis showed marked lactic acidosis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Other poor prognostic factors include left ventricular dysfunction with ejection fraction less than 20%, secondary renal insufficiency, hyponatremia and hypokalemia (with[symptoma.com]

  • Cardiac Arrest

    Hypokalemia has many causes. The Penn State Milton S.[livestrong.com] A 62-year-old woman with renal cell carcinoma (RCC) experienced deteriorating hypotension and bradycardia during radical nephrectomy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] It does not suppress the respiratory system significantly, but has adverse effects on the cardiovascular system, for example, bradycardia and hypotension.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • 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]

  • 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]
