Possible Causes for Low Voltage Electrocardiogram in USA

  • Tension Pneumothorax
    Low-Voltage Electrocardiogram

    Tension pneumothorax (TP) is defined as a progressive build-up of air within the pleural space, generally due to a laceration of the lung. The clinical presentation of tension pneumothorax is very similar to that of pneumothorax, even though it is much more pronounced. The classical signs include hypotension and…[1]

  • Juvenile Myxedema
    Low-Voltage Electrocardiogram
  • Tuberculous Pericarditis
    Low-Voltage Electrocardiogram

    Tuberculous pericarditis is a form of pericarditis. Pericarditis caused by tuberculosis is difficult to diagnose, because definitive diagnosis requires culturing Mycobacterium tuberculosis from aspirated pericardial fluid or pericardial biopsy, which requires high technical skill and is often not diagnostic (the yield from…[2]

  • Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease
    Low-Voltage Electrocardiogram

    Symptoms and signs may include: Fatigue Dyspnea  Paroxysmal nocturnal dyspnea (PND) Chest tightness Wheezing Cough with sputum (mucoid and/or purulent) Fever Chest pain Workup consists of a detailed history, tests and physical examination. Laboratory Tests Complete blood count Arterial blood gases Serum…[3]

  • Acute Myocardial Infarction
    Low-Voltage Electrocardiogram

    Acute myocardial infarction (AMI) ,colloquially referred to as a heart attack, is an irreversible death of a myocardial segment sequel to persistent occlusion and inadequacy of coronary blood flow to the heart. AMI typically presents with central chest pain which may radiate to the neck, left arm, jaw, and shoulders.…[4]

  • Myxedema
    Low-Voltage Electrocardiogram

    Myxedema or severe hypothyroidism is clinical condition where the thyroid gland does not produce any thyroid hormone. In some cases, myxedema condition is also being referred to as underactive thyroid. Myxedema typically present with a distinct facial appearance, hoarse slow speech, and dryness of the skin. The…[5]

  • Kawasaki Disease
    Low-Voltage Electrocardiogram

    Kawasaki disease (Kawasaki syndrome, mucocutaneous lymph node syndrome) is a systemic vasculitis of unknown etiology that primarily affects infants and children. Symptoms include a fever lasting more than 5 days, macular-papular erythematous rash, adenopathy, bilateral conjunctival injection and swelling of the…[6]

  • Ischemic Cardiomyopathy
    Low-Voltage Electrocardiogram

    Ischemic cardiomyopathy (ICM) is defined as a diminution of left ventricular (LV) function per se by 35% or < 50% with co-existing coronary artery disease (CAD). CAD, myocardial ischemia, scarring, and ventricular dysfunction are the main features of ICM .  Symptoms and signs, if confirmed by objective diagnostic…[7]
