NC Death Certificate #272, Registration District #81-2585, stamped #23827, Register #24, Albert Bridges, DOD: 9/14/1920 in Forest City, Rutherford County, NC (he resided there for the last 35 yrs)
Male, White, Married to Noonie Bridges (sic), DOB: 5/20/1859 in NC, 61 yrs, 3 mos, 24 days old
Occupation: Farmer
Father: John Bridges, born in NC
Mother: Synthia Bridges, Born in NC
Informant: B.H. Bridges of Forest City, NC
DOD: 9/14/1920 at 11:00pm
Cause of death: Cardio renal disease* and Dropsy** (duration 2 yrs and 6 mos)
Burial: Cool Springs on 9/15/1920

* Cardiorenal syndrome (CRS) is a condition characterized by kidney failure and heart failure. Type 2 CRS is characterized by chronic heart failure that leads to chronic kidney disease. Chronic kidney disease is a progressive loss in renal function over a period of months or years.
CKD is initially without specific symptoms and can only be detected as an increase in serum creatinine or protein in the urine. As the kidney function decreases:
Blood pressure is increased due to fluid overload and production of vasoactive hormones created by the kidney via the RAS (renin-angiotensin system), increasing one's risk of developing hypertension and/or suffering from congestive heart failure
Urea accumulates, leading to azotemia and ultimately uremia (symptoms ranging from lethargy to pericarditis and encephalopathy). Urea is excreted by sweating and crystallizes on skin ("uremic frost").
Potassium accumulates in the blood (known as hyperkalemia with a range of symptoms including malaise and potentially fatal cardiac arrhythmias)
Erythropoietin synthesis is decreased (potentially leading to anemia, which causes fatigue)
Fluid volume overload - symptoms may range from mild edema to life-threatening pulmonary edema
Hyperphosphatemia - due to reduced phosphate excretion, associated with hypocalcemia (due to vitamin D3 deficiency). The major sign of hypocalcemia is tetany.
Later this progresses to tertiary hyperparathyroidism, with hypercalcaemia, renal osteodystrophy and vascular calcification that further impairs cardiac function.
Metabolic acidosis, due to accumulation of sulfates, phosphates, uric acid etc. This may cause altered enzyme activity by excess acid acting on enzymes and also increased excitability of cardiac and neuronal membranes by the promotion of hyperkalemia due to excess acid (acidemia)[2]
People with chronic kidney disease suffer from accelerated atherosclerosis and are more likely to develop cardiovascular disease than the general population. Patients afflicted with chronic kidney disease and cardiovascular disease tend to have significantly worse prognoses than those suffering only from the latter. The most common causes of CKD are diabetes mellitus, hypertension, and glomerulonephritis.

** Dropsy, is an abnormal accumulation of fluid beneath the skin or in one or more cavities of the body. It can be caused by systemic diseases causing water retention, pregnancy in some women, either directly or as a result of heart failure, or local conditions such as varicose veins, thrombophlebitis, insect bites, or dermatitis. A rise in hydrostatic pressure occurs in cardiac failure. Severe heart failure can cause pulmonary edema, pleural effusions, ascites and peripheral edema. Pulmonary edema occurs when the pressure in blood vessels in the lung is raised because of obstruction to remove blood via the pulmonary veins. This is usually due to failure of the left ventricle of the heart. It can also occur in altitude sickness or on inhalation of toxic chemicals. Pulmonary edema produces shortness of breath. Pleural effusions may occur when fluid also accumulates in the pleural cavity. Pulmonary edema is fluid accumulation in the lungs. It leads to impaired gas exchange and may cause respiratory failure. It is due to either failure of the heart to remove fluid from the lung circulation ("cardiogenic pulmonary edema") or a direct injury to the lung parenchyma ("noncardiogenic pulmonary edema").
