29 Possible Causes for Aspiration Pneumonia, Cerebral Vasculitis or Vasculopathy

  • Cerebral Thrombosis

    Delayed cerebral thrombosis may occur in patients with excellent recovery from pneumococcal meningitis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] This context may facilitate aspiration pneumonia or ICP elevation. Control of seizure episodes frequently required drug associations.[annalsofintensivecare.springeropen.com] This may lead to aspiration pneumonia, another common cause of death shortly after a stroke.[minddisorders.com]

  • Stroke

    ), noninflammatory vasculopathy, Moyamoya disease and fibromuscular dysplasia.[en.wikipedia.org] 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]

  • Intracerebral Hematoma

    Sickle cell disease Eclampsia or postpartum vasculopathy Infection Vasculitis Neonatal intraventricular hemorrhage Trauma In younger patients, vascular malformations, specifically[en.wikipedia.org] Aspiration pneumonia is a risk and can occur even with endotracheal intubation. Elevate the head of the bed at 30 degrees to help prevent this complication.[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com] pneumonia Screen for dysphagia before starting oral feeds I Table 1.[intechopen.com]

  • Transient Ischemic Attack

    For example, it may be necessary to determine the utility of cerebral angiography to rule out vasculitis, carotid artery dissection, and other forms of nonath-erosclerotic[aafp.org] Protection of the airway and suctioning may help to lower the risk of aspiration. Measures to treat nausea and vomiting also may lower the risk of aspiration pneumonia.[doi.org] vasculopathy, or lumbar spinal puncture with cerebrospinal fluid evaluation may be required to rule out chronic infection or inflammation.[aafp.org]

  • Pediatric Arterial Ischemic Stroke
