  • Pulmonary Embolism

  • Acute Massive Pulmonary Embolism

    Atrial fibrillation, atrial flutter and atrial tachycardia are commonly described supraventricular tachycardias in association with PE; however, there is scant description[pulsus.com] Excluding two patients with tumor occlusion of the pulmonary arteries and three patients with chronic cor pulmonale from old pulmonary emboli, the survival rate was 50%.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] without acute cor pulmonale I26.92 Saddle embolus of pulmonary artery without acute cor pulmonale I26.99 Other pulmonary embolism without acute cor pulmonale[icd10data.com]

  • Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome

    Increased work of breathing and using of accessory muscles may ultimately result in fatigue and respiratory failure.[lecturio.com] On arrival to the emergency department (ED) the patient was noted to be febrile with tachycardia, tachypnea, and hypoxia and was intubated for respiratory failure.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Acute cor pulmonale is common in severe ARDS. ARDS itself and some treatments could worsen acute cor pulmonale.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Asthma

    Individuals often require accessory muscles to breathe, and breath sounds can be diminished.[medicinenet.com] The tachycardia, hypertension, and neurological symptoms improved.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] 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]

  • Atelectasis

    Hypotension, tachycardia, fever, and shock may also occur. Slowly developing atelectasis is usually asymptomatic sometimes causes minor symptoms.[respiratoryupdates.wordpress.com] If the blood oxygen level is low, oxygen therapy may help prevent complications such as cor pulmonale (heart disease related to lung disease).[generalhealthtopics.com] […] affected alveoli or slowly manifesting atelectasis asymptomatic or minimal symptoms Large number of affected alveoli or rapid onset acute dyspnea, chest pain, tachypnea, tachycardia[amboss.com]

  • Chronic Right-Sided Congestive Heart Failure

  • Acute Bronchitis

    Signs of advanced disease include pursed-lip breathing, accessory respiratory muscle use, paradoxical inward movement of the lower rib cage during inspiration (Hoover sign[msdmanuals.com] Pneumonia should be suspected in patients with tachypnea, tachycardia, dyspnea, or lung findings suggestive of pneumonia, and radiography is warranted.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] phase or other obstructive signs may be present but not essential Making the diagnosis no clear diagnostic criteria have been established cough in the absence of fever, tachycardia[clinicaladvisor.com]
