2,614 Possible Causes for Acute Respiratory Failure, Facial Muscle Weakness and Progressive Atrophy, Grip Strength Decreased

  • Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis

    Acute respiratory failure is sometimes the first manifestation of the disease, although onset can be more insidious.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Prior animal studies have shown that silencing SOD1 led to preservation of grip strength and a delay in the onset of motor function deficits [ 125, 126 ].[doi.org] In cranial nerves, common symptoms are atrophy of facial muscles and progressive bulbar palsy (PBP).[flexikon.doccheck.com]

  • Lambert Eaton Myasthenic Syndrome

    The patient presented with acute respiratory failure, making identification and management of her illness challenging.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] MuSK MG should be considered if there is facial or tongue weakness with atrophy, or weakness that predominates in neck or shoulder muscles.[docksci.com] However, rare cases of severe respiratory compromise or respiratory failure have been reported in patients with LEMS.[medscape.com]

  • Myotonic Dystrophy

    Clinical Presentation: Variable, progressive disability; facial and distal limb muscle weakness with myotonia; cataracts; cardiac conduction defects; diabetes mellitus; and[ajnr.org] The clinical course led progressively to major disability with severe proximal weakness and atrophy and, later on, distal weakness, atrophy and neck extensor weakness responsible[doi.org] , in males, testicular atrophy Key Diagnostic Features: MRI features: Subcortical hyperintensity of the white matter on T2-weighted sequences, with a predilection for the[ajnr.org]

  • Myasthenia Gravis

    respiratory failure after a 12-day hospitalization.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Weakness then becomes generalised in about 80% of patients. 2 The most serious complication is myasthenic crisis: acute respiratory failure resulting from myasthenia gravis[bmj.com] […] aggressive treatment with corticosteroids, pyridostigmine, intravenous immunoglobulin, and plasmapheresis, the patient clinically deteriorated and ultimately expired from acute[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Myasthenic Crisis

    Abstract Noninvasive mechanical ventilation using bilevel positive pressure ventilation (BiPAP) has not been studied in acute respiratory failure caused by MG.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] OBJECTIVES: To investigate the frequency, causes, and characteristic features of the course of isolated myasthenic crisis (defined as acute respiratory failure with the need[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] CONCLUSIONS: BiPAP is effective for the treatment of acute respiratory failure in patients with myasthenia gravis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Motor Neuron Disease

    The case report outlined below describes acute respiratory failure requiring non invasive ventilation (NIV), at the time of diagnosis of MND.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Symptoms include pharyngeal muscle weakness (involved with swallowing), weak jaw and facial muscles, progressive loss of speech, and tongue muscle atrophy.[web.archive.org] Acute respiratory failure has been reported. [ 7 ] Some patients with pseudobulbar palsy may have 'emotional incontinence', an over-reaction to sad or funny events that they[patient.info]

  • Rheumatoid Arthritis

    Acute stridor or obstructive respiratory failure may occur from sudden subluxation or superimposed airway oedema from infection or intubation.[err.ersjournals.com] Splints can decrease pain and improve the strength of one's grip, but it may decrease hand movement.[doi.org] Studies also showed that laser therapy worked just as well as 'placebo' laser therapy to improve range of motion, function, swelling and grip strength.[doi.org]

  • Cervical Spinal Cord Injury

    Indications for intubation in spinal cord injury are acute respiratory failure, decreased level of consciousness (Glasgow score 9), increased respiratory rate with hypoxia[emedicine.medscape.com] This could be caused by (i) decreased strength, (ii) triceps brachii paralysis which disrupts normal agonist–antagonist co-contractions, (iii) accuracy preservation at movement[jneuroengrehab.biomedcentral.com] In high cervical SCI occurs acute respiratory failure, tetraplegia, anesthesia, lack of all reflexes below injury site, neurogenic shock, detrusor and rectum areflexia, ipsilateral[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
