191 Possible Causes for Acidosis, Cyanosis, Respiratory Alkalosis

  • Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome

    The symptoms usually appear shortly after birth and may include tachypnea, tachycardia, chest wall retractions (recession), expiratory grunting, nasal flaring and cyanosis[] These include older age, chronic alcohol abuse, metabolic acidosis, and severity of critical illness.[] Tachypnea, hypoxia, and respiratory alkalosis are typical early clinical manifestations, and they are usually followed by the appearance of diffuse pulmonary infiltrates and[]

  • Atelectasis

    Atelectasis and Pneumothorax Lungs Pain Trouble breathing Faintness Cyanosis Mucus plug Tumor Inhaled foreign object Physical trauma to the lung Wound Overview Atelectasis[] […] operation time, the trendelenburg position, and increased intra-abdominal pressure due to pneumo-peritoneum usually lead to severe atelectasis, increased level of PaCO 2 and acidosis[] […] diminished breath sounds, and decreased fremitus over the affected lung References: [2] Diagnostics Arterial blood gas analysis : hypoxemia, potentially low PaCO 2, and respiratory[]

  • Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease

    The is caused by the lack of oxygen in the bloodstream, a condition known as cyanosis.[] Eventually, hypercapnia and respiratory acidosis develop, leading to pulmonary artery vasoconstriction and cor pulmonale.[] […] compromise Chronic respiratory acidosis leads to compensatory metabolic alkalosis In patients with emphysema, frontal and lateral chest radiographs reveal the following:[]

  • Respiratory Acidosis

    Cyanosis -- a bluish discoloration of the skin and mucous membranes -- becomes visible. With severe hypoxemia, the heart rate and blood pressure will start to fall.[] […] same decrement in pH the magnitude is far less than that observed during metabolic acidosis.[] alkalosis : hyper ventilation, rapid rate of breathing, causes too much carbon dioxide to be exhaled and the ph of the body rises. the cardinal sign of respiratory alkalosis[]

  • Cardiogenic Shock

    Cyanosis. Cyanosis occurs because there is insufficient oxygenated blood that is being distributed to all body systems.[] Besides the severity of lactic acidosis there were no strong predictors of early death.[] alkalosis  Arterial hypoxemia  Elevated CKMB, trop t ,trop i 13.[]

  • Acidosis

    Cyanosis, hypotension and acidosis develop due to lack of adequate systemic arterial perfusion.[] Other reasons for metabolic acidosis include – Kidney disease – with proximal or distal renal tubular acidosis Severe dehydration A high-fat plus low-carbohydrate diet Metabolic[] […] patients who have respiratory alkalosis, the tidal volume and/or respiratory rate may need to be decreased.[]

  • Psychogenic Hyperventilation

    Therefore, D is the correct answer because hyperventilating patients RARELY have cyanosis.[] Whereas high lactates are usually associated with acidosis and an increased risk of poor outcome, in patients with psychogenic hyperventilation, high lactates are associated[] Causes of Respiratory Alkalosis 1.[]

  • Pneumocystis Carinii Pneumonia

    alkalosis Associated conditions HIV Prevention smoking cessation prophylaxis with medication trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole (TMP-SMX) dapsone and pyrimethamine Prognosis mortality[] […] corticosteroid therapy Patients on chemotherapy for cancer Associated infections CMV Mycobacterium avium-intracellulare (MAI) Herpes simplex Clinical Findings Severe dyspnea and cyanosis[] Despite treatment with high-dose trimethoprim/sulfamethoxazole (TMP/SMX) and prednisone with initial improvement, the patient acutely deteriorated with severe acidosis and[]

  • Acute Hyperventilation

    With respect to resuscitation of blood pressure and oxygenation, the Guidelines state: "Hypotension (systolic blood pressure 90 mm Hg) or hypoxia (apnea or cyanosis in the[] Louis, Missouri, pp 1333, 1340-1347 (May 23, 2016) National Kidney Foundation: Metabolic Acidosis.[] Respiratory Alkalosis Definition Respiratory alkalosis is a condition where the amount of carbon dioxide found in the blood drops to a level below normal range.[]

  • Hyperventilation

    Abstract A 16 year-old girl was admitted after suffering from recurrent episodes of dyspnea and stridor, cyanosis, loss of contact, stiffening of all four limbs, clenching[] DISCUSSION: Hyperchloremic normal anion gap metabolic acidosis, which can lead to hyperventilation, has been reported as an adverse effect of topiramate treatment.[] Abstract Hyperventilation in pregnancy is a cause of chronic respiratory alkalosis.[]
