184 Possible Causes for Aspiration Pneumonia, Bell's Palsy

  • Stroke

    palsy Bell's palsy is a type of cranial neuropathy that results from the inflammation of a nerve in the face.[medicalnewstoday.com] pneumonia, pressure ulcers, etc.).[radiopaedia.org] Swallowing difficulties can result in reduced fluid and food intake, and cause aspiration, which can lead to aspiration pneumonia, undernutrition and dehydration [ 5 ].[patient.info]

  • Cerebral Thrombosis

    This context may facilitate aspiration pneumonia or ICP elevation. Control of seizure episodes frequently required drug associations.[annalsofintensivecare.springeropen.com]

  • Guillain-Barré Syndrome

    The differential diagnosis was between a variant of GBS and Bell's palsy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Thromboembolism, pneumonia, skin breakdown. Cardiac arrhythmia. Ileus. Aspiration pneumonia. Urinary retention. Psychiatric problems - eg, depression, anxiety.[patient.info] GBS mortality, estimated at about 5 percent, results from respiratory distress syndrome, aspiration pneumonia, sepsis, pulmonary embolism, and arrhythmias [9].[journalofethics.ama-assn.org]

  • Multiple Sclerosis

    Facial weakness: Bell's palsy can occur alone or with other indications of brainstem disorder.[patient.info] Dysphagia management is collaborative and can enhance nutrition and hydration goals as well as reduce the risk of aspiration pneumonia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Aspiration pneumonia (resulting from the food particles and/or liquids passing into the lungs) can also make breathing more difficult.[web.archive.org]

  • Subdural Hematoma

    Chronic subdural hematoma (CSDH) is prevalent among elderly populations worldwide, and its mysterious pathogenesis has been discussed in the literature for decades. The issues remaining to be solved in regard to CSDH include the initiating events; the bleeding into the subdural space and the formation of the outer[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Syringomyelia

    Respiratory problems such as aspiration or pneumonia, skin breakdown, infections in the bladder and impaction of the bowels are just a few others.[spinalcordinjury-paralysis.org]

  • Bacterial Meningitis

    Impaired consciousness, aspiration pneumonia, and cranial nerve palsy at admission were independently associated with increased mortality.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Immediate treatment included tympanocentesis, with aspirates sent for bacteriologic cultures.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Cultures were positive for Streptococcus pneumoniae in the cerebrospinal fluid, ear, and blood in 7, 5, and 3 patients, respectively.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Meningococcal Meningitis

    A large post-licensure safety study of adolescent vaccine recipients found a slightly higher risk of Bell’s palsy in vaccine recipients. 44 However, ongoing analysis of millions[immunisationhandbook.health.gov.au] Two of the patients (both teenagers) died of fulminant infection during the first 36 hours of therapy and one elderly woman developed aspiration pneumonia requiring penicillin[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Pneumococcal Meningitis

    […] are a common cause of pneumonia in young children aspiration pneumonia – caused by breathing in vomit, a foreign object, such as a peanut, or a harmful substance, such as[nhs.uk] The most common way you catch pneumonia is to aspirate bacteria from the upper airway, usually the oral cavity.[emedicinehealth.com] As well as bacterial pneumonia, other types include: viral pneumonia – most commonly caused by the respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) and sometimes influenza type A or B; viruses[nhs.uk]

  • Myasthenia Gravis

    Complications Aspiration pneumonia due to throat muscle weakness. Acute respiratory failure during an exacerbation.[patient.info] Patients with pneumonia should be admitted because they often are taking immunosuppressant medications and are at a high risk for aspiration pneumonia. [17] Plasmapheresis[emedicine.medscape.com] Imaging Tests Chest radiography Chest radiography is indicated to determine the presence of aspiration or other pneumonias, which commonly occur in patients with myasthenia[emedicine.medscape.com]
