1,624 Possible Causes for Hypokalemia, Shock

  • Cardiomyopathy

    Coronary syndrome and acute myocarditis were excluded as the causes of the shock.[] Abstract We report a case of a 47-year-old Caucasian woman with medical history of hypertension and hypokalemia, who presented to Emergency Room with symptoms resembling acute[] Abstract INTRODUCTION: The role of extracorporeal support for patients with septic shock remains unclear.[]

  • Diarrhea

    After admission, the patient suffered from hematemesis, hematochezia, ascites, anuria, and kidney failure, and he developed shock.[] The diarrhea resulted in hypokalemia and sodium depletion that made her dependent on twice weekly intravenous fluid and electrolyte infusions.[] Recommendations This guideline includes recommendations on: diagnosis assessing dehydration and shock fluid and nutritional management antibiotic therapy escalation of care[]

  • Small Bowel Obstruction

    Fever Severe/continuous pain Hematemesis Shock Gas in bowel wall/portal vein Abdominal free air Peritoneal signs Acidosis (lactic acidosis) What are the clinical parameters[] Without treatment, the patient can suffer shock and kidney failure.[] Bowel Bowel dilates proximal to obstruction Flatus and Bowel Movement s cease Dehydration results from Vomiting, minimal absorption, and bowel edema Metabolic Alkalosis and Hypokalemia[]

  • Cardiac Arrest

    We report the use of out-of-hospital extracorporeal life support (ECLS) in a 62-year-old patient with severe cardiogenic shock after cardiac arrest.[] The debate in the literature is ongoing, but at the present time, SB administration is only recommended for cardiac arrest related to hypokalemia or overdose of tricyclic[] This device sends an electric shock to the heart. The electric shock can restore a normal rhythm to a heart that's stopped beating.[]

  • Acute Pancreatitis

    Emergency physicians should consider this diagnosis in acute pancreatitis as a possible cause of hypovolemic shock and anatomic course of the IMV and prevent fulminant shock[] He presented with respiratory distress, shock and fever at the emergency.[] HFRS shows distinctive clinical manifestations throughout from acute influenza-like febrile illness to shock.[]

  • Acute Peritonitis

    Abstract The authors treated a patient for what appears to be the first reported occurrence of acute peritonitis and salpingitis associated with streptococcal toxic shock[] Leukocytosis, hypokalemia, hypernatremia, and acidosis may be present, but they are not specific findings.[] Two patients (0.9 per cent) had postoperative septic shock but survived. CONCLUSION: Laparoscopy is feasible and safe in cases of peritonitis.[]

  • Adrenogenital Syndrome

    Lacking this hormone, the baby can progressively lose body salt and go into shock.[] […] congenital adrenal hyperplasia that leads to a decrease in adrenal androgen synthesis and an increase in aldosterone, causing renal reabsorption of sodium, hypertension, and hypokalemia[] If left untreated, life-threatening metabolic decompensation and shock may occur.[]

  • Acute Liver Failure

    A 38-year-old previously healthy Sri Lankan woman from Colombo, Sri Lanka, presented with dengue shock syndrome leading to acute liver failure and kidney injury.[] Also, severe electrolye abnormalities (hyponatremia, hypophosphatemia, hypokalemia, hypomagnesemia, also metabolic acidosis). Patients often need CVVH. 5.[] […] etiopathogenesis of hepatic dysfunction is multifactorial and related to direct viral invasion of hepatocytes, immunological factors and hypoxia particularly in cases of shock[]

  • Clostridium Difficile

    This case provides the first report of a young healthy child presenting in septic shock from Clostridium difficile colitis.[] Although metronidazole was initiated, she developed altered mental status and septic shock.[] We report a case of a 79-year old patient who developed septic shock with an increasing need for norepinephrine and acute renal failure due to a severe Clostridium difficile[]

  • Diabetic Ketotic Coma

    She was totally unconscious, shocked, anuric, grossly dehydrated and in status pilepticus but she recovered, and has remained non-diabetic, with diminished adrenal response[] […] 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[] […] discomfort often affecting whole abdomen but usually centred on the umbilicus Signs 3 cardinal signs: dehydration overbreathing ketones on breath Others: confusion/coma /- shock[]
