274 Possible Causes for Accessory Muscle Breathing

  • Asthma

    Individuals often require accessory muscles to breathe, and breath sounds can be diminished.[medicinenet.com] Severe airflow obstruction may be predicted by accessory muscle use, pulsus paradoxus, refusal to recline below 30 , a pulse 120 beats/min, and decreased breath sounds.[doi.org] Are accessory muscles of respiration employed? Is there pursed lip breathing? Is there cyanosis? Note the ratio between the inspiratory and expiratory phase.[patient.info]

  • Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease

    , and use of accessory muscles.[radiopaedia.org] Other respiratory muscles include the external and internal intercostal muscles, the abdominal muscles and the accessory breathing muscles.[en.wikipedia.org] Signs of advanced disease include pursed-lip breathing, accessory respiratory muscle use, paradoxical inward movement of the lower rib cage during inspiration (Hoover sign[merckmanuals.com]

  • Atelectasis

    A 3-month-old boy with a history of an abdominopelvic neuroblastoma presented 1 week after tumor resection for a routine follow-up 123-I Meta-iodobenzylguanidine (MIBG) scan to assess for residual mass. The study demonstrated abnormal radiotracer uptake in the right upper lobe, which correlated on the SPECT/CT[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome

    Other respiratory muscles include the external and internal intercostal muscles, the abdominal muscles and the accessory breathing muscles.[en.wikipedia.org] Increased work of breathing and using of accessory muscles may ultimately result in fatigue and respiratory failure.[lecturio.com] […] use of accessory muscles, intercostal retraction, Hoover sign, suprasternal and supraclavicular retractions, tachypnea (RR 30 bpm), paradoxical breathing], central cyanosis[xlung.net]

  • Pulmonary Embolism

    Although the advent of multi-detector row computed tomography (CT) has enabled better visualization of subsegmental pulmonary (SSP) arteries, SSP embolism is of uncertain clinical significance. We aimed at answering the following questions: Is spiral CT an accurate method to detect SSP embolism? How are[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Aspiration Pneumonia

    Accessory muscles then move the food into the esophagus with a peristaltic wave.[americannursetoday.com] In seconds, the larynx closes involuntarily and breathing is ceased temporarily.[americannursetoday.com]

  • Bacterial Pneumonia

    Physical exam : On physical exam, breathing may be labored, using accessory muscles in the neck, chest and abdomen.[nmihi.com] […] respiratory muscles Tachycardia ( 100 bpm) or bradycardia ( 60 bpm) Central cyanosis Altered mental status Physical findings may include the following: Adventitious breath[emedicine.medscape.com] […] bad-tasting sputum Signs of bacterial pneumonia may include the following: Hyperthermia (fever, typically 38 C) [1] or hypothermia ( 35 C) Tachypnea ( 18 respirations/min) Use of accessory[emedicine.com]

  • Pneumothorax

    Other respiratory muscles include the external and internal intercostal muscles, the abdominal muscles and the accessory breathing muscles.[en.wikipedia.org] muscles (sternocleidomastoid, scalenes) and absent breath sounds.[11] A number of scales may be used to quantify the degree of shortness of breath.[18] It may be subjectively[en.wikipedia.org] The most important respiratory muscle is the diaphragm.[en.wikipedia.org]

  • Acute Massive Pulmonary Embolism

    Abstract The aim of this study was to evaluate the contribution of clinical, angiographic and haemodynamic findings in predicting the cardiorespiratory efficacy of thrombolytic therapy in acute massive pulmonary embolism. Haemodynamic measurements and pulmonary angiography were performed before (H0) and 12 h[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Extrapulmonary Alveolar Hypoventilation

    muscles for breathing.[aafp.org] […] use of accessory muscles, intercostal retraction, Hoover sign, suprasternal and supraclavicular retractions, tachypnea (RR 30 bpm), paradoxical breathing], central cyanosis[xlung.net] Clinical manifestations that should raise suspicion include dyspnea, abnormal breathing patterns (e.g. accessory respiratory muscle use, rapid shallow breathing) and altered[clinicaladvisor.com]
