541 Possible Causes for Acute Respiratory Failure, Possibly Scoliosis

Did you mean: Acute Respiratory Failure, Possibly, Scoliosis

  • Kyphoscoliosis

    This article reports a case study of 'Sue', a 37 year old female who was transferred to a metropolitan hospital's intensive care unit in acute respiratory failure secondary[] The main aim of physical therapy is to make the spinal tissues stronger in order to help correct the curvature as much as possible.[] While its role in chronic respiratory failure is well documented, its use in acute respiratory failure is less well defined.[]

  • Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy

    The resultant respiratory failure can easily occur from the underlying progressive nocturnal hypoventilation and hypoxia or from an acute cardiac insufficiency.[] One of them showed severe scoliosis. After hospitalization chest CT scan revealed extensive pulmonary bilateral segmental atelectasis.[] Ages at loss of ambulation or scoliosis diagnosis did not differ statistically among treatment groups.[]

  • Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease

    […] liver disease, cardiac shunts or lung fibrosis who have “platypnoea and orthodeoxia” which means that they are more hypoxic in the upright position. 137 Other patients with scoliosis[] The prognosis of acute respiratory failure requiring invasive mechanical ventilation is believed to be grim in this population.[] Acute respiratory failure with diffuse pulmonary opacities is an unusual manifestation following influenza vaccination.[]

  • Pulmonary Fibrosis

    In these patients, the central drive is not decreased. 1 Acute and chronic respiratory failure, pulmonary hypertension, and cor pulmonale eventually ensue.[] Lung function in adult idiopathic scoliosis: a 20 year follow up. Thorax. 1991 Jul. 46 (7):474-8. [Medline]. Baydur A.[] This was thought to be due predominantly to reduced hospitalisations for acute exacerbation and/or worsening respiratory function.[]

  • Becker Muscular Dystrophy

    ., respiratory failure, cardiac disease), or to both. CONCLUSIONS: Use of succinylcholine in children with dystrophinopathy is contraindicated.[] Electrocardiogram (ECG) and echocardiogram - these may be difficult to interpret due to scoliosis.[] Progressive scoliosis and contracture formation may require surgical intervention.[]

  • Multiple Sclerosis

    He had a bifid uvula, bilaterally duplicated thumbs and scoliosis. Additionally, he had hypertelorism, a wide forehead and flattening of mid-face.[] Homozygous hPDGF-A tg mice exhibit deformity of the spinal cord (scoliosis) and die within the first few postnatal weeks.[]

  • Glycogen Storage Disease Type 2

    Dingyu Tan, Jun Xu, Yi Yang, Ming Gu and Xuezhong Yu, Postoperative acute respiratory failure caused by adult‐onset Pompe disease, The Clinical Respiratory Journal, 12, 1,[] Case, The prevalence and impact of scoliosis in Pompe disease: Lessons learned from the Pompe Registry, Molecular Genetics and Metabolism, 104, 4, (574), (2011).[] ., The prevalence and impact of scoliosis in Pompe disease: lessons learned from the Pompe Registry. Mol Genet Metab, 2011. 104(4): p. 574-82.[]

  • Funnel Chest

    It may be associated with scoliosis in 15-20% of cases.[] Patients with funnel chest are usually asymptomatic but can have related cardiovascular dysfunction, thoracolumbar scoliosis, or psychological effects.[] It may be seen in association with Marfan syndrome, congenital heart disease, and in association with scoliosis.[]

  • Respiratory Muscle Paralysis

    Strongyloides stercoralis hyperinfection in a malnourished 6-year-old boy was characterized by severe diarrhea, dehydration and marked hypokalemia, followed by acute respiratory[] If scoliosis is present, the work of breathing may be even harder.[] respiratory failure due to respiratory muscle paralysis, and cardiac arrest.[]

  • Tracheomalacia

    Here, we report a case of acute respiratory failure in which subglottic stenosis was accidentally identified during endotracheal intubation.[] She had scoliosis and tracheomalacia. Bronchoscopy showed a flattened and narrow lower trachea and an anterior pulsatile compression by the innominate artery.[] […] present a case of acquired tracheomalacia in a 15-year-old boy, a victim of Proteus syndrome (hemihypertrophy, subcutaneous tumors, and macrodactyly), who had congenital scoliosis[]
