58 Possible Causes for Hypokalemia, Ventricular Bigeminy

  • Cardiomyopathy

    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[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Frequent ventricular ectopics and ventricular bigeminy (seen with severe DCM). Ventricular dysrhythmias ( VT / VF ).[lifeinthefastlane.com]

  • Premature Ventricular Contraction

    PVCs can occur in healthy hearts and may simply be a response to: increased catecholamines, caffeine, hypoxia, fever, drug toxicity, hypercalemia, hypokalemia or hypomagnesemia[rnceus.com] Example 3) Ventricular Bigeminy ECG (Example 1) Ventricular Bigeminy ECG (Example 2) Ventricular Bigeminy ECG (Example 3) Ventricular Trigeminy ECG (Example 1) Ventricular[healio.com] (low blood levels of potassium), and hypomagnesaemia (low blood levels of magnesium) -- hypokalemia and hypomagnesaemia can occur, for example, in patients taking diuretics[medicinenet.com]

  • Hypokalemia

  • Electrolytes Abnormal

    Hyperkalemia Several concepts in hypokalemia are relevant to hyperkalemia.[the-hospitalist.org] […] moderate hypokalemia.[musculoskeletalkey.com] Differential Diagnosis Hyponatremia Hypokalemia Hypocalcemia Hypernatremia Hyperkalemia Hypercalcemia Speaking Intelligently Electrolyte disorders are common clinical problems[clinicalgate.com]

  • Digitalis Toxicity

    Dilutional hypokalemia may precipitate digitalis toxicity in the digitalized patient. Successful resuscitation of such a patient is reported.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Most common finding: PVCs Other arrhythmias: bradycardia, atrial tachyarrhythmias with AV block, ventricular bigeminy, junctional rhythm, various degrees of AV nodal blockade[ucsfmed.wordpress.com] Toxicity may result from the cumulative effect of the drug or from hypokalemia.[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com]

  • Torsades De Pointes

    Here is review of hypokalemia from the NEJM, but it is mostly about etiology, and says little about rapid replacement in life-threatening hypokalemia EXCEPT to emphasize how[hqmeded-ecg.blogspot.com] […] fibrillation 5 years ago, was admitted for catheter ablation of incessant right ventricular outflow tract bigeminy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] However, a cardiac monitor revealed a short run of ventricular bigeminy. At this point, ECG was abnormal with prolongation of the QT interval (QT/QTc 524/517 ms).[consultant360.com]

  • Ventricular Arrhythmia

    […] heart rate of more than 120 beats per minute, VT is strongly associated with heart disease (eg. myocardial infarction, cardiomyopathies), while electrolyte abnormalities (hypokalemia[symptoma.com] […] rhythm, ventricular bigeminy, ventricular ectopic beats, and ventricular escape rhythm) episodes from Electrocardiogram (ECG) signal.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Many risk factors, including hypokalemia, use of QT-interval-prolonging drugs, and drug interactions are potentially modifiable and should be corrected in persons at risk[doi.org]

  • Ventricular Bigeminy

    Hypokalemia and light plane of anaesthesia are some of the few correctable causes of ventricular bigeminy. [1] Early and appropriate management of these causes will prevent[jemds.com] Ventricular bigeminy can develop following a cobra envenomation.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Other causes of cardiac arrhythmias include hypoxia, hypercarbia, hypokalemia.[joacp.org]

  • Atrial Arrhythmia

    Diuretics Thiazide diuretics are especially known for hypokalemia as a potential side effect.[onlinejacc.org] Therefore, regular electrolyte monitoring of patients using diuretics is essential, and adding potassium-conserving diuretics can be helpful in patients susceptible to hypokalemia[onlinejacc.org]

  • Atrial Bigeminy

    Causes and Clinical Significance PAC's are common and may occur due to stress, CHF, MI, fatigue, digoxin toxicity, hypokalemia, hypomagnesemia, hyperthyroidism, excessive[ekginterpretation.tripod.com] The patient is in Ventricular Bigeminy. Bigeminy comes for the latin for ‘twins’.[resus.com.au] Cardiomyopathy Valvular heart disease Mitral valve prolapse Noncardiac causes Stimulants: caffeine, cocaine, alcohol Metabolic abnormalities: acidosis, hypoxemia, hyperkalemia, hypokalemia[aafp.org]
