154 Possible Causes for Acute Respiratory Failure, Unable to Stand

  • Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy

    This can result in trouble standing-up. Most are unable to walk by the age of twelve. Affected muscles may look larger due to increased fat content.[] The resultant respiratory failure can easily occur from the underlying progressive nocturnal hypoventilation and hypoxia or from an acute cardiac insufficiency.[] Children with Duchenne may be slower to sit, stand or walk. Most are unable to run and jump properly due to weakness in the core muscles of the body.[]

  • Guillain-Barré Syndrome

    Patients may be unable to stand or walk despite reasonable strength, especially when ophthalmoparesis or impaired proprioception is present.[] CASE REPORT: An 82-year-old woman presented with acute ascending flaccid paralysis and acute respiratory failure.[] Approximately 30% of patients require intubation and ventilation because of respiratory failure.[]

  • Spinal Cord Injury

    For those who are comfortable while standing, special standing apparatus of work equipment may be considered.[] NEW TO THIS EDITION * Additional section on the intensive care unit * Extended section on surgical emergencies * 5 new chapters covering: - Acute respiratory failure - Cardiovascular[] However, most deaths after SCI involve acute events such as pneumonia, respiratory failure, septicemia and other infective diseases, pulmonary embolus and external causes[]

  • Polymyositis

    Causes of death among the 27 patients who died during the follow-up period were cardiac in 22% (4 acute myocardial infarction and 2 congestive heart failure), respiratory[] […] in 22% (2 interstitial lung disease, 2 acute respiratory distress syndrome, 1 respiratory failure and 1 asthma), infection in 15% (2 sepsis and 2 pneumonia), cancer in 11%[]

  • Dermatomyositis

    ECMO was giving when the patient suffered acute respiratory failure.[] METHODS: We retrospectively enrolled 14 patients with CADM-associated RPIPs and acute respiratory failure treated with PMX-DHP, corticosteroids, and immunosuppressive agents[] Diffuse alveolar damage has also been reported in three patients with amyopathic dermatomyositis and acute respiratory failure 6.[]

  • Spinal Epidural Abscess

    A spinal epidural abscess is a potentially life-threatening bacterial infection of the epidural space, due to its insidious onset and nonspecific symptoms of fever, back pain and malaise. The diagnosis is often delayed, and radiculopathy accompanied by severe disability or even paralysis are seen in severe stages of[…][]

  • Spinal Cord Infarction

    Paraplegia caused by a spinal cord infarction (SCI) is a devastating perioperative complication, most often associated with aortic and spine surgery. We present two other clinical scenarios in which perioperative SCI may occur. They happened during surgical procedures performed with epidural anesthesia, in the[…][]

  • Poliomyelitis

    Abstract During the poliomyelitis epidemics of the last century hospitals were inundated with patients in acute respiratory failure.[] […] limb to quadriplegia, respiratory failure, and rarely, death.[] The classical symptoms of this third stage include hyper- or hypotension, respiratory failure, dysphagia and dysphonia.[]

  • Head Injury

    Feeling very weak or having trouble standing up. Being less alert. You may suddenly be unable to respond to questions, or you may be confused, restless, or fearful.[]

  • Opiate Overdose

    […] the standard treatment for heroin overdose, is a safe and effective prescription drug commonly administered by emergency room physicians or first responders acting under standing[] Thereafter, some patients require intensive care management because of respiratory failure, metabolic encephalopathy, acute kidney injury, and other organ failure.[] An impact on the respiratory system could also manifest in the development of acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) and pulmonary edema with a potentially fatal outcome[]
