31 Possible Causes for Apnea, Facial Petechiae

  • Acute Respiratory Failure

    Sudden and unexpected deaths have been reported in SPS, and all described cases have been associated with apnea.[] Acute hypercarbic respiratory failure secondary to obstuctive sleep apnea Acute hypoxemic respiratory failure Acute respiratory failure from obstuctive sleep apnea Alveolar[] Endotracheal intubation in pregnancy carries a significant risk, due to upper airway edema and rapid oxygen desaturation following apnea.[]

  • Traumatic Asphyxia

    Traumatic asphyxia is an uncommon syndrome of craniocervical cyanosis, facial petechiae, and subconjunctival hemorrhages following severe crush injury to the thorax.[] It is also called traumatic apnea, bruise mask, Perthes syndrome and Morestin s syndrome.[] Abstract Compression of the chest causing facial petechiae, violaceous facial hue, subconjunctival hemorrhages, and frequent mental status abnormalities has been termed traumatic[]

  • Bordetella Pertussis

    ., pneumonia, convulsions, apnea, encephalopathy, and death.[] Methods: - We enrolled 123 infants younger than 180 days (median age 57 days, 62 [50.4%] males), unvaccinated with paroxysmal cough ( 5 days), apnea/cyanosis or vomit post-cough[] […] distinguishing factor also presents with a dry cough, but no whooping cough and no posttussive vomiting Complications Pneumonia Failure to thrive Death especially in young infants Apnea[]

  • Superior Vena Cava Syndrome

    There is growing evidence that fluid accumulation in the neck contributes to the pathogenesis of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA).[]

  • Valsalva Maneuver

    […] can also cause the windpipe tube to constrict from the vacuum created and this may well weaken the windpipe and adversely affect the speaking and singing voice and invite apnea[] CO2, hyperventilation, apnea, breath holding, cold pressure, handgrip, head-up tilt, cognitive/motor tasks, and intravenous injection of acetazolamide.[] […] understanding of the cardiac hemodynamic changes not only in physiological behaviors such as cough and bowel movements, but also in pathological states such as obstructive sleep apnea[]

  • Narcolepsy

    Petechiae were observed on the soft palate, and facial edema was noted.[] OBJECTIVE: To identify improvements in daytime sleepiness following adenotonsillectomy in children with non-severe obstructive sleep apnea and narcolepsy.[] She was diagnosed with obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) and underwent tonsillectomy and adenoidectomy.[]

  • Malnutrition

    Post-vomiting facial petechiae – tiny red, purple, or brown spots due to breakage of small blood vessels and bleeding into the skin.[] We present an unusual case of unanticipated postoperative apnea following mivacurium administration, as a result of acquired plasma cholinesterase deficiency, in a patient[] For those patients in a poor nutritional state who experience an unexpected episode of apnea or prolonged neuromuscular blockade, practitioners must always consider malnutrition-induced[]

  • Pediatric Arterial Ischemic Stroke

    Left arm and leg strength were 2/5 with a noticeable facial droop. Cardiac exam showed a regular rate and rhythm with no murmurs. Chest was clear and abdomen was soft.[] Respirations, noting patterns and rhythm (periods of apnea after hyperventilation), Cheyne-Stokes respiration.[] Signs of a stroke in infants : seizures in one area of the body, such as an arm or a leg problems eating trouble breathing or pauses in breathing (apnea) early preference[]

  • Polycythemia Neonatorum

    His skin is pink with a few facial petechiae. He moves all extremities well. His Moro reflex is intact. His grasp response is symmetrical. His suck reflex is strong.[] […] often to the central nervous and respiratory systems: irritability or lethargy, hypotonia, seizures, tremor or jitters, motor delay and respiratory distress, tachypnea, apnea[] In primary apnea, the infant may respond to stimulation and oxygen when respirations cease. What is secondary apnea?[]

  • Infective Endocarditis

    […] coughing, holding breath, vomiting or crying, which can result in facial petechiae, especially around the eyes.[] Obstructive sleep apnea (a condition of sleep wherein disordered breathing overlaps with obesity, hypertension, and/or diabetes) is regarded as an independent cause of heart[] Causes [ edit ] Physical trauma [ edit ] Coughing, holding breath, vomiting, crying - The most common cause of petechiae is through physical trauma such as a hard bout of[]
