1,980 Possible Causes for Hypokalemia, Shock

  • Acute Gastroenteritis

    […] resolution of features of shock at 8 and 24 hours.[] It is known that these patients are more susceptible to hypokalemia than normal individuals.[] hypokalemia.[]

  • Adrenal Insufficiency

    METHODS Thirty three children with septic shock were enrolled.[] Patients receiving fludrocortisone acetate may experience gastrointestinal upset, edema, hypertension, hypokalemia, insomnia, and excitability.[] Excess aldosterone results in sodium retention, hypokalemia , and alkalosis. Aldosterone deficiency results in sodium loss, hyperkalemia, and acidosis.[]

  • Heat Stroke

    A 37-year-old man was transferred to our emergency center because of heat stroke with circulatory shock.[] […] 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[] On admission, the common electrolyte disturbances were hypokalemia (71.2 %), hypophosphatemia (59.1 %), hyponatremia (53.0 %), hypocalcemia (51.5 %), and hypomagnesemia (34.9[]

  • Cardiac Arrest

    No significant association was found between distance and bystander shock for at-home arrests.[] Hypokalemia has many causes. The Penn State Milton S.[] The H’s Hypovolemia - Insufficient blood volume Hypoxia - insufficient oxygenation Hydrogen ion - acidosis Hyper-/hypokalemia Hypothermia - insufficient heat Hypo-/Hyperglycemia[]

  • Cholera

    The patient suffered from hypovolemic shock and acute renal failure. Elevated creatine phosphokinase indicated rhabdomyolysis.[] Hypokalemia: results from potassium loss in the stool. Hypokalemia develops only after the acidosis is corrected.[] Low potassium levels (hypokalemia). People with cholera lose large quantities of minerals, including potassium, in their stools.[]

  • Cardiomyopathy

    The role of extracorporeal support for patients with septic shock remains unclear.[] 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 coronary[] Attention to electrolytes is critical to avoid cardiac complications of hypokalemia.[]

  • 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.[] Labs Complete Blood Count Leukocytosis may be significant in bacteremia and intestinal perforation Comprehensive Metabolic Panel Hypokalemia Contraction Alkalosis (dehydration[]

  • Pheochromocytoma

    Extracorporeal membrane oxygenation has been extensively used for cardiopulmonary support in cardiogenic shock.[] Hypokalemia may be present if hyperaldosteronism is diagnosed.[] Hypotension shock, pulmonary edema, and acute coronary syndrome induced by pheochromocytoma are uncommon (Malindretos et al., 2008; Batisse-Lignier et al., 2015).[]

  • Acute Liver Failure

    […] etiopathogenesis of hepatic dysfunction is multifactorial and related to direct viral invasion of hepatocytes, immunological factors and hypoxia particularly in cases of shock[] Also, severe electrolye abnormalities (hyponatremia, hypophosphatemia, hypokalemia, hypomagnesemia, also metabolic acidosis). Patients often need CVVH. 5.[] Correction of hypokalemia is essential as hypokalemia increases the kidneys' ammonia production, potentially exacerbating encephalopathy.[]

  • Diarrhea

    Severe dehydration can cause the body to go into shock and is potentially fatal. Dehydration is more serious for infants and children than for adults.[] The diarrhea resulted in hypokalemia and sodium depletion that made her dependent on twice weekly intravenous fluid and electrolyte infusions.[] Rehydration: with intravenous fluids in case of severe dehydration or shock.[]
