319 Possible Causes for Pleurisy, Sudden Death, Tachycardia

  • Pulmonary Embolism

    METHODS: We present an unusual case of sudden death owing to acute pulmonary embolism after undergoing total extraperitoneal inguinal hernia repair.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Pulmonary embolism (PE) represents a clinical challenge for clinicians because of nonspecific presentations, including dyspnea, chest pain, and tachycardia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] It can mimic pneumonia, congestive heart failure, and a viral illness known as pleurisy.[vascularcures.org]

  • Acute Myocardial Infarction

    Bidirectional ventricular tachycardia (BVT) is a rare ventricular tachyarrhythmia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] We have recently experienced 2 cases of sudden death after bone fracture surgery, in which AMI and pulmonary thromboembolism were clinically suspected as causes of death.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Crossref PubMed Virmani R, Burke AP, Farb A, Sudden cardiac death, Cardiovasc Pathol, 2001;10:275–82.[uscjournal.com]

  • Acute Pancreatitis

    […] pain Classically radiating towards the back Worse after meals and when supine Improves on leaning forwards Nausea, vomiting General physical examination Signs of shock : tachycardia[amboss.com] The differential diagnosis includes: Perforated peptic ulcer Biliary colic Acute cholecystitis Pneumonia Pleuritic pain Myocardial infarction Elevated serum amylase and lipase[en.wikipedia.org] Carefully evaluate patient for signs of withdrawal if they have a history of alcohol use (tongue fasciculations, tachycardia, hypertension, anxiety etc) Cholangitis Broad[rebelem.com]

  • Thromboembolism

    We report the sudden death of a 23-year-old male with hairline ankle fracture after massage of the leg by his mother.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Remarkable findings on the physical exam include cyanosis, tachycardia, tachypnea, and fever.[symptoma.com] The classic presentation for PE with pleuritic pain, dyspnea and tachycardia is likely caused by a large fragmented embolism causing both large and small PEs.[en.wikipedia.org]

  • Myocardial Infarction

    Bidirectional ventricular tachycardia (BVT) is a rare ventricular tachyarrhythmia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] or fainting Unexplained weakness or fatigue Rapid or irregular pulse Although chest pain is the key warning sign of a heart attack, it may be confused with indigestion, pleurisy[lakelandhealth.org] The primary outcome was the composite of sudden death or death from ventricular tachyarrhythmia at 90 days (arrhythmic death).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Pulmonary Infarction

    […] pregnancy and older age Small infarcts usually have minimal symptoms; if bronchial circulation is inadequate (so reduced collateral circulation), then have shortness of breath, tachycardia[pathologyoutlines.com] . - Overlying pleura shows patches of fibrinous pleurisy due to irritation. - With time the center of the infarct becomes brown and eventually pale as the hemorrhage breaks[histopathology-india.net] […] suspicious of a pulmonary infarction if the patient is experiencing hemoptysis or chest pain, or if the physical exam shows evidence of a very large embolus (in particular, if tachycardia[verywell.com]

  • Congestive Heart Failure

    The basic pharmacology of PDE inhibitors is presented and the use of PDE-3 inhibitors for the treatment of heart failure causing an increase in sudden death is also reviewed[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] ECG and telemetry revealed relatively slow supraventricular tachycardia, which did not trigger the alert, and catheter ablation successfully controlled the heart failure.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] pneumonitis, food/vomitus 147,837 31,772 21.5 20 Hypertension with complications and secondary hypertension 211,243 45,309 21.4 21 Chronic ulcer of skin 50,845 10,823 21.3 22 Pleurisy[web.archive.org]

  • Cardiac Arrhythmia

    Some of these patients have, however, a much higher risk of sudden death compared to others.[escardio.org] In 30 of 32 patients (94%) with an inducible tachycardia during invasive EPS, it was also possible to induce the tachycardia by TAS.[doi.org] […] shock with CC 210,406 43.5 24,200 38.2 378 Gastrointestinal hemorrhage with CC 145,492 43.3 24,500 27.2 313 Chest pain 221,490 40.6 15,500 29.5 193 Simple pneumonia and pleurisy[web.archive.org]

  • Rheumatoid Arthritis

    One week after admission, she developed fever, dyspnea, hypoxemia, tachycardia, and increased serum C-reactive protein level.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] variety of symptoms, including: general weakness or a feeling of malaise dry mouth dry, itchy, or inflamed eyes eye discharge difficulty sleeping chest pain when you breathe ( pleurisy[healthline.com] A second goal is to prevent sudden death from unrecognized neural compression, as has been reported in up to 10% of deaths in rheumatoid arthritis.[emedicine.medscape.com]

  • Pleural Effusion

    pleurisy, which has no fluid accumulation.[health.harvard.edu] Pulmonary embolism (PE) presents with complex clinical manifestations ranging from asymptomatic to chest pain, hemoptysis, syncope, shock, or sudden death.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] 2016 2017 2018 2019 Billable/Specific Code Type 1 Excludes pleurisy with effusion ( J90 ) Effusion pleura, pleurisy, pleuritic, pleuropericardial J90 Pleurisy (acute) (adhesive[icd10data.com]
