51 Possible Causes for Risk of Sudden Death due to Cardiac Arrhythmias

  • Emery-Dreifuss Muscular Dystrophy Type 1

    The patients and carriers are at risk of sudden death due to cardiac arrhythmias ( 1 – 8 ).[ajnr.org] […] consist of slowly progressing muscle weakness and atrophy, especially in the humeroperoneal region; muscle contractures, especially in the neck, elbows, and ankles; and cardiac[ajnr.org]

  • Ventricular Arrhythmia

    Although cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) has been a useful treatment of heart failure, patients with CRT are still in risk of sudden cardiac death due to ventricular[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) is associated with an increased risk of sudden cardiac death (SCD) primarily due to ventricular arrhythmia (VA).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] arrhythmia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Brugada Syndrome

    Brugada syndrome (BrS) is a primary electrical disease associated with increased risk of sudden cardiac death due to polymorphic ventricular arrhythmias.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The prognosis, risk stratification, and management of asymptomatic individuals remain the most controversial issues in BrS.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Autosomal Dominant Emery-Dreifuss Muscular Dystrophy 2

    The patients and carriers are at risk of sudden death due to cardiac arrhythmias ( 1 – 8 ).[ajnr.org] […] consist of slowly progressing muscle weakness and atrophy, especially in the humeroperoneal region; muscle contractures, especially in the neck, elbows, and ankles; and cardiac[ajnr.org]

    death due to ventricular arrhythmia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] To unmask or exacerbate a Brugada ECG pattern, class IA or IC antiarrhythmic agents are used, and clinicians can predict sudden cardiac death in a high-risk patient.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Brugada syndrome is an inherited arrhythmogenic disease, characterised by a coved-type ST segment elevation in right precordial leads and an increased risk of sudden cardiac[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Loxapine

    All antipsychotics have been associated with the risk of sudden cardiac death due to an arrhythmia (irregular heart beat).[nami.org] To minimize this risk, antipsychotic medications should be used in the smallest effective dose when the benefits outweigh the risks.[nami.org]

  • Hyperkalemia

    Acute hyperkalemia is a medical emergency that requires immediate treatment due to the risk of arrhythmia and sudden cardiac death.[house.wikia.com]

  • Risperidone

    All antipsychotics have been associated with the risk of sudden cardiac death due to an arrhythmia (irregular heart beat).[nami.org] […] of death, strokes, and transient ischemic attacks (TIAs) in elderly people with behavior problems due to dementia.[nami.org] To minimize this risk, antipsychotic medications should be used in the smallest effective dose when the benefits outweigh the risks.[nami.org]
