457 Possible Causes for Impaired Exercise Tolerance, Increased Area of Cardiac Dullness, Non Specific ST-T Changes

  • Cardiomyopathy

    Anna Adam Heart failure specialist nurse, Lancashire Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust, Chorley Christopher Nicholson Cardiac nurse specialist–heart failure, Central Lancashire Primary Care Trust, Preston Lynn Owens Nurse consultant–alcohol services, University of Liverpool, Liverpool This article provides an overview of[…][doi.org]

  • Dilated Cardiomyopathy

    Electrocardiogram revealed sinus tachycardia and non-specific ST-T changes in the lateral leads.[doi.org]

  • Ischemic Cardiomyopathy

    The cardinal manifestations of HF are dyspnea and fatigue, which may limit exercise tolerance, and fluid retention, which may lead to pulmonary congestion and peripheral edema[circ.ahajournals.org] Definition of HF Heart failure is a complex clinical syndrome that can result from any structural or functional cardiac disorder that impairs the ability of the ventricle[circ.ahajournals.org] Both abnormalities can impair the functional capacity and quality of life of affected individuals, but they do not necessarily dominate the clinical picture at the same time[circ.ahajournals.org]

  • Primary Cardiomyopathy

    PURPOSE OF REVIEW: Noncompaction of the left ventricle is a descriptive anatomical term and recently recognized primary cardiomyopathy. Cardiac imaging now allows for prompt detection. The specific etiology remains poorly understood, however, and the major genetic determinants are unknown. This review describes[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Alcoholic Cardiomyopathy

    Even though alcoholism is a major health concern, alcoholic cardiomyopathy is a little-known pathology. The exact prevalence remains elusive (20-40% of dilated cardiomyopathy). However, it can lead to dilated cardiomyopathy, heart failure and refractory cardiogenic shock. The literature on cardiogenic shock in[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Peripartum Cardiomyopathy

    Peripartum cardiomyopathy (PPCM) is a form of dilated cardiomyopathy that is defined as a deterioration in cardiac function presenting typically between the last month of pregnancy and up to six months postpartum. As with other forms of dilated cardiomyopathy, PPCM involves systolic dysfunction of the heart with[…][en.wikipedia.org]

  • Pericardial Effusion

    Considerable amounts of pericardial fluid may muffle heart sounds, increase the area of cardiac dullness, and change the size and shape of the cardiac silhouette.[merckmanuals.com] Dyspnea and reduced exercise tolerance will be early signs, progressing to severe impaired cardiac output and death in severe cases (e.g. cardiac tamponade ).[radiopaedia.org] Regardless of volume, symptoms relate to impaired cardiac function due to intrapericardial pressure approximating intracardiac pressure leading to an impaired filling of low[radiopaedia.org]

  • Malignant Pericardial Effusion

    Dyspnea and reduced exercise tolerance will be early signs, progressing to severe impaired cardiac output and death in severe cases (e.g. cardiac tamponade ).[radiopaedia.org] Regardless of volume, symptoms relate to impaired cardiac function due to intrapericardial pressure approximating intracardiac pressure leading to an impaired filling of low[radiopaedia.org]

  • Hypoglycemia

    Disease / Cause Remarks Insulinoma 1. mostly benign insulin-secreting tumors of the pancreas 2. malignant insulinoma (10-15%) 3. insulinoma in familial multiple endocrine neoplasia type I ( MEN I / menin gene) - pancreatic, parathyroid, and pituitary endocrine tumors non-insulinoma pancreatogenic hypoglycemia-syndrome[…][web.archive.org]

  • Congestive Heart Failure

    The impairment of exercise tolerance indicated by NYHA classification was markedly improved by PD for both groups.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Numerous mechanisms unrelated to hemodynamic dysfunction may underlie impaired exercise tolerance in patients with chronic heart failure.[doi.org] […] as tolerated and, for Pts with impaired renal function or psychogenic polydipsia, fluid restriction. 2. drug therapy with multiple agents–diuretics, ACE inhibitors, digoxin[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com]
