228 Possible Causes for Hypovolemic Shock, Potassium Increased

  • Addisonian Crisis

    Addison's Disease Acute adrenal crisis (Addisonian Crisis / Acute Adrenal Insufficiency) Hypovolemic Shock What are the symptoms of Addison’s disease and an adrenal crisis[] - mineral corticosteroid addisons too little steroids excretes sodium and water and holds on to potassium so increase potassium hyponatremia (losing sodium), hypotension ([] shock, profound hypoglycemia, confusion, altered mental status, ventricular dysrhythmias, GI (N/V, diarrhea, anorexia, cramps), hyperpigmentation of the skin pts usually[]

  • Addison's Disease

    Presumably, Addisonian crises prompted hypovolemic shock and blood transfusions, which were responsible for horizontal HIV infection.[] Classically, patients affected with Addison's disease develop weakness, anorexia, electrolyte imbalances: decreased sodium and chloride with increased serum potassium resulting[] The chance of hypovolemic shock accompanying a crisis is greater in patients with primary Addison, lacking mineralocorticoids (case A).[]

  • Metabolic Acidosis

    The cause of an elevated anion gap may be clinically obvious (eg, hypovolemic shock, missed hemodialysis), but if not, blood testing should include Glucose BUN Creatinine[] The anion gap can be increased due to relatively low levels of cations other than sodium and potassium (e.g. calcium or magnesium).[] Regardless of its etiology - cardiogenic, hypovolemic, or distributive - circulatory shock causes a reduction in oxygen offer to organs and tissues.[]

  • Dehydration

    Low blood volume shock (hypovolemic shock). This is one of the most serious, and sometimes life-threatening, complications of dehydration.[] Plus, a lack of electrolytes, potassium and sodium – all of which hydration helps increase – is linked to cramps.[] As dehydration progresses, hypovolemic shock ultimately ensues, resulting in end organ failure and death.[]

  • Autoimmune Adrenal Insufficiency

    shock.[] The kidneys' effect on sodium and potassium depend on the intake of these cations (ie, increased sodium intake increased potassium secretion).[] shock .[]

  • Adrenal Hemorrhage

    shock resulting in delayed vascular opacification). - In the absence of urinary excretion, it is not possible to rule out trauma to the excretory system, particularly if[] , but active bleeding that is visible in the portal phase may be of arterial or venous origin (as arteries often go into spasm following injury, or the patient may be in hypovolemic[]

  • Extensive Burns

    Unless fluids are replaced immediately, renal shut down and hypovolemic shock will occur.[] The diuretics dilute the amount of potassium in the blood while increasing sodium levels. Dialysis also can be performed on burn victims to reduce potassium levels.[] Thus HHS combined with the massive fluid losses of a burn tremendously increases this patient's risk for hypovolemic shock and serious hypotension.[]

  • Accidental Hypothermia

    shock impairs their thermoregulatory system, are also at elevated risk for death if hypothermic.[] Patients who died were older, had lower both systolic and diastolic pressure, and had increased creatinine an potassium levels on admission.[] As hypothermia progresses, the sodium levels tend to decrease while potassium increases, presumably due to a reduction in enzymatic activity of the cell membrane sodium–potassium[]

  • Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome

    Hypovolemic, hemorrhagic • Septic-especially gram negative • Burns • Massive aspiration of gastric contents (Mendelssohn’s Syndrome) • Acute pancreatitis • Heroin/methadone[] For example, patients with hypovolemic shock should be quickly identified and treated with rapid volumetric replacement, in order to minimize the impact on the evolution and[] […] concentrations of inhaled 0 2 • Pulmonary function tests showing increased pulmonary vascular pressures and resistances and decreased compliance • Predisposing conditions: • Shock[]

  • Succinylcholine

    shock, prolonged neuromuscular blockade, and prolonged immobilization ( 1–10 ).[] Our objectives in this study were to determine the factors associated with arterial potassium increase (ΔK) and to assess the occurrence of acute hyperkalemia 6.5 mmol/L after[] Rocuronium is not known to increase potassium concentration, has fast onset of activity, and can be rapidly reversed by sugammadex.[]
