2,545 Possible Causes for Aspiration Pneumonia, Compound Muscle Action Potential with Low Amplitude, Decreased Vital Capacity

  • Guillain-Barré Syndrome

    capacity less than 60 percent predicted. 22 One retrospective study 21 demonstrated a 40 percent decrease from predicted vital capacity, compared with a 60 percent decrease[aafp.org] Thromboembolism, pneumonia, skin breakdown. Cardiac arrhythmia. Ileus. Aspiration pneumonia. Urinary retention. Psychiatric problems - eg, depression, anxiety.[patient.info] muscle action potentials reduced amplitude with relatively preserved conduction velocity implicates axonal neuropathy delayed/absent F waves implicates nerve root involvement[step2.medbullets.com]

  • Myasthenia Gravis

    Monitoring arterial pO 2 or oxygen saturation is not enough, as vital capacity can decrease markedly before these parameters change.[patient.info] Distinguishing features of the RNS test in LEMS and MG are confirmed in this direct comparison study: the low compound muscle action potential amplitude, decrement at LRS,[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] 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]

  • Flail Chest

    Historically, the free-floating flail segment was deemed responsible for an the increased work of breathing with subsequent hypoxemia and decreased vital capacity; this belief[jtojournal.com] pneumonia early in the course of his stay.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Schiller and colleagues published a study in the European Journal of Trauma and Emergency Surgery showing that the procedure significantly improved forced vital capacity in[mayoclinic.org]

  • Progressive Bulbar Palsy

    pneumonia Diagnosis There is no special test for PBP.[wikilectures.eu] Individuals are at increased risk of choking and aspiration pneumonia, which is caused by the passage of liquids and food through the vocal folds and into the lower airways[secure.ssa.gov] Tracheoesophageal anastomosis for intractable aspiration pneumonia. The Annals of Thoracic Surgery , Vol. 51, Issue. 1, p. 23.[cambridge.org]

  • Bulbar Poliomyelitis

    Other potential complications include pneumonia (including aspiration pneumonia ) and urinary tract infection.[patient.info] It is possible that minor episodes of aspiration pneumonia occurred but were not symptomatic because of the ability of the lungs to clear small amounts of aspirated material[nejm.org] […] from aspiration of secretions . [63] Overall, 5 to 10 percent of patients with paralytic polio die due to the paralysis of muscles used for breathing.[en.wikipedia.org]

  • Dermatomyositis

    Low pulmonary vital capacity at disease onset and anti-ARS antibodies positivity are the risk factors for the recurrence of ILD with PM/DM.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Pulmonary manifestations range from aspiration pneumonia to interstitial lung disease (ILD), sometimes with complications such as pulmonary arterial hypertension (see these[orpha.net] Low compound muscle action potentials (CMAP) amplitudes may not necessarily indicate a neuropathic process, as it may reflect muscle atrophy and fibrosis.[doi.org]

  • Acute Bronchitis

    Other test abnormalities may include Increased total lung capacity Increased functional residual capacity Increased residual volume Decreased vital capacity Decreased single-breath[msdmanuals.com] Aspiration pneumonia: The coughing of bronchitis can make you choke on your food if you cough while eating.[verywell.com] ) Bronchoscopy (to exclude foreign body aspiration, tuberculosis, tumors, and other chronic diseases) Influenza tests Spirometry Laryngoscopy (to exclude epiglottitis) See[emedicine.medscape.com]

  • Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome

    pneumonia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The patient developed aspiration pneumonia for which he was given vancomycin and piperacillin-tazobactam.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Many cases of ARDS start as pneumonia or aspiration pneumonia, making antibiotics essential.[verywell.com]

  • Neonatal Respiratory Distress Syndrome

    The surfactant deficiency may be secondary to several pathological processes, such as infectious or meconium aspiration pneumonia or pulmonary hemorrhage, intrapartum asphyxia[symptoma.com] […] syndrome, pneumonia/sepsis, pulmonary edema or acute lung injury resulting a secondary surfactant deficiency (SSD).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Pulmonary infection - eg group B beta-haemolytic streptococcal pneumonia. Pulmonary haemorrhage. Meconium aspiration pneumonia.[patient.info]
