Potassium Chloride Heart Attack
Myocardial Infarction means some of the heart muscle dies because of insufficient oxygen supply. Most often this occurs because the coronary artery is blocked by plaque & clot. Other causes include tears in the artery wall, extremely high oxygen demand (eg, rapid arrhythmia, heart valve disorder, or severe systemic illness.) Prompt treatment can minimize heart damage & ...Read more
Yes: It can cause!Get a more detailed answer ›
Yes: Severe hyperkalemia can lead to cardiac arrest, but not myocardial infarction (blockage of the heart arteries). It is highly lethal when it is very elevated and causes characteristic changes on EKG. It may be caused by undiagnosed kidney failure. It can be readily treated in an ER. ...Read more
Ana positive high titer homogeneous stain.... heart palpitations high bp and pulse. Low potassium. Trace WBC in urine.could kidney n heart b involved?
+ ANA test low K: 34 F ? ethnicity :ANA+,hi titer, HBP, heart palp & low potassium (K) takes BCPs. Asks "could kid and heart b involved." ANS: Yes If you have DX of lupus. Consider BCPs as cause of HBP. Lo K is unusual in LE, so with K & HTN need more tests. Would do blood&urine K. If both low then you are not eating enoughK or losing in BM, sweat or vomit.

Sodium 142, potassium 3.7, total calcium 9.7 ionized calcium 4.6, magnesium 2.2. Muscle twitches/crawls and skipped beats?
Not directly: Cardiac output is the amount of blood flow generated by the heart over a given time frame. Potassium is a critical electrolyte for body health and cardiac function, especially its rhythm. Although high or low potassium levels can create major, potentially fatal, irregularities in the heart rhythm, those levels do not directly affect the cardiac output per se. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Possibly: Low potassium cannot cause classical panic or anxiety attacks. Low potassium, depending on how low, can cause cardiac arrhythmias or irregular heart beats. I guess i could see how feeling one's heart flutter or skip a beat could lead to anxiety. Also, worrying about the whole deal could make one very anxious. There are multiple causes for low potassium as well as treatments to correct it. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
They often can: Ectopic beats are heart beats that originate from a location in the heart other than the normal sinus node in the atrium(the normal pacemaker). If they originate in the atrium they are called premature atrial contractions(PACs). If they originate from the ventricle they are called(PVCs). Beta blockers can reduce or prevent PACs and can reduce the symptoms from frequent PVCs. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
