Pneumonia
  • Extensive investigations for infection were negative, and her symptoms were initially attributed to aspiration pneumonia.[casereports.bmj.com]
Aspiration
  • Extensive investigations for infection were negative, and her symptoms were initially attributed to aspiration pneumonia.[casereports.bmj.com]
Heart Disease
  • The aetiology of this excess risk is uncertain: it is most likely due to ischaemic heart disease, but microangiopathy or increased cholinergic sensitivity may play a role.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Hypotension
  • She suddenly developed hypotension and respiratory distress and required pericardiocentesis and, ultimately, surgical repair for a perforated right atrium.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Arthritis
  • There was a broad spectrum of related complications such us septic arthritis, sternal or vetebral or femoral osteomyelitis, and abscesses in lung, spleen, liver, brain and perinephric area.[academic.oup.com]
Dysarthria
  • She was found to have new atrial fibrillation in addition to right-sided weakness and dysarthria. An infarct in the left anterior inferior cerebellar artery territory was later confirmed on CT.[casereports.bmj.com]

Workup

Pericardial Effusion
  • The patient gradually deteriorated despite antibiotics and became progressively short of breath, with development of large pleural and pericardial effusions. A diagnosis of postcardiac injury syndrome was made after exclusion of other differentials.[casereports.bmj.com]
Staphylococcus Aureus
  • The leading pathogens were Coagulase-negative Staphylococci and Staphylococcus aureus, in 42% and 29% of cases, respectively.[academic.oup.com]
Right Bundle Branch Block
  • Abstract Diabetes mellitus increases the rate of atrioventricular block after a myocardial infarction; right bundle branch block is more common than expected in the diabetic outpatient population.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Related Topics Pacemaker essentials: Medmastery Pacemaker malfunction Left bundle branch block Right bundle branch block Sgarbossa Criteria References Bernstein AD, Daubert JC, Fletcher RD, Hayes DL, Lüderitz B, Reynolds DW et al.[lifeinthefastlane.com]
  • However, left bundle branch block combined with advanced or third-degree AV block and right bundle branch block combined with left anterior or left posterior fascicular block carry a particularly ominous prognosis.[circ.ahajournals.org]
  • In the first half of the tracing, pacemaker stimuli at 60 beats per minute result in a wide QRS complex with a right bundle branch block pattern.[en.wikipedia.org]

Treatment

  • Treatment for air embolisms includes oxygen treatment, haemodynamic support and prevention of further air entry in the systemic circulation.[academic.oup.com]
  • Since these drugs have a marginal impact on patient outcomes, it might be preferable to change drug treatment rather than implant a pacemaker.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Some important reasons for this include: a) short-wave diathermy for the treatment of rheumatism, and use of diathermy close to the pacemaker site during surgery should be avoided; b) you should avoid magnetic resonance imaging, a medical diagnostic imaging[nuhcs.com.sg]
  • Information about a therapy, service, product or treatment does not in any way endorse or support such therapy, service, product or treatment and is not intended to replace advice from your doctor or other registered health professional.[betterhealth.vic.gov.au]
  • A variety of changes in your pacemaker can occur during and after the treatment. Your doctor should carefully evaluate your pacing system after the procedure.[hcahamilton.com]

Prognosis

  • However, in patients with type II second-degree AV block (either intra- or infra-His), symptoms are frequent, prognosis is compromised, and progression to third-degree AV block is common.[circ.ahajournals.org]

Etiology

  • Recurrent syncope of undetermined etiology in the presence of ventricular dysfunction and inducible ventricular arrhythmias at electrophysiological study when other causes of syncope have been excluded. (Level of evidence: C) Class III 1.[circ.ahajournals.org]

Prevention

  • Treatment for air embolisms includes oxygen treatment, haemodynamic support and prevention of further air entry in the systemic circulation.[academic.oup.com]
  • Usually, the ventricular lead is positioned before the atrial lead to prevent its dislodgment.[emedicine.medscape.com]
  • A pacemaker is a small device whose main purpose is to prevent the heart from beating too slowly. The device stimulates the heart muscle when the heart rate is too slow or altogether absent. Over time pacemakers have become smaller and more durable.[inovaheart.org]
  • Currently, doctors use an ICD to prevent these arrhythmias. The device works by detecting such a rhythm and shocking the heart back to normal.[medicinenet.com]
