1,232 Possible Causes for Aspiration Pneumonia, Hypoxia

  • Pneumonia

    Pneumonia can cause hypoxia and increased work of breathing.[ems1.com] […] at risk of aspiration pneumonia which usually affects the right lung and is caused by anaerobes from the oropharynx.[patient.info] Aspiration pneumonia Aspiration pneumonia occurs when you inhale food, drink, vomit or saliva into your lungs.[mayoclinic.org]

  • Acute Bronchitis

    Pertussis is a highly contagious bacterial respiratory illness with several potentially severe complications, including dehydration, hypoxia, encephalopathy, syncope, seizures[journals.lww.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]

  • Flail Chest

    The underlying pulmonary contusion with subsequent inflammatory reaction and right-to-left shunting leading to hypoxia continues to result in high mortality for these patients[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] pneumonia early in the course of his stay.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] rib fractures, underlying lung contusion and associated pain on movement.[2] Splinting respirations Voluntary splinting as a result of pain.[5] Tachycardia This is due to hypoxia[explainmedicine.com]

  • Tetanus

    Uncorrected episodes of hypoxia (lack of oxygen) caused by muscle spasms in the throat may lead to irreversible brain damage.[nlm.nih.gov] Respiratory failure 6(85.7%), and aspiration pneumonia 1(14.3%) were causes of death. In this study, case fatality rate was high.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Laryngospasm/obstruction Sedative-associated obstruction Respiratory apnoea Type I (atelectasis, aspiration, pneumonia) and type II respiratory failure (laryngeal spasm,[lifeinthefastlane.com]

  • Guillain-Barré Syndrome

    Atelectasis leads to hypoxia. ii. Hyper-carbia later finding; arterial blood cases may be misleading. iii.[physio-pedia.com] GBS mortality, estimated at about 5 percent, results from respiratory distress syndrome, aspiration pneumonia, sepsis, pulmonary embolism, and arrhythmias [9].[journalofethics.ama-assn.org] Significant complications of GBS include mechanical ventilatory failure, aspiration pneumonia, sepsis, joint contractures, and deep vein thrombosis.[zdoc.site]

  • Status Epilepticus

    […] excessive muscle contractions that increase body temperature and serum potassium levels and may interfere with proper and coordinated function of respiratory muscles followed by hypoxia[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] pneumonia, and longer time on the ventilator.[emcrit.org] If a child is younger than 3 years of age, infection, hypoxia, or metabolic disturbances are the most likely causes.[pedsinreview.aappublications.org]

  • Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation

    We report three autopsy cases of wide-spread myocardial necrosis with calcification in pediatric patients after temporary generalized hypoxia and initially successful cardiopulmonary[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] An occasional complication, however, is regurgitation followed by aspiration of gastric contents, causing life-threatening aspiration pneumonia in resuscitated patients.[merckmanuals.com] Approximately 2 minutes after an intravenous line was established by an anesthesia resident, severe hypoxia and bradycardia developed, and she lost consciousness.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Pulmonary Embolism

    Hypoxia is an independent predictor of both right ventricular dysfunction and 30-day mortality in these patients.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] A nine-year-old female with spinal muscular atrophy type 1, chronic respiratory failure with tracheostomy and ventilator dependence presented with tachypnea and hypoxia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] CONCLUSIONS Tracheobronchomalacia should be considered in the differential diagnosis of hypoxia when evaluating a patient in the ICU.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Atelectasis

    Role of the atelectasis (hypoxia) in the respiratory system of the live and exited newborn (250 up to 3000 g. of body weight), which has died due to different causes was studied[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] pneumonia.[differencebetween.net] English s collapsed lung ( atelectasis ); lack of oxygen in the body (hypoxia); congestion; cough; noisy or More by bab.la Other dictionary words[en.bab.la]

  • Esophagitis

    Recently, however, studies in rats and humans suggest that reflux esophagitis develops as a cytokine-mediated inflammatory injury, with hypoxia inducible factor (HIF)-2α playing[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] ‘Complications seen in a hiatal hernia include aspiration pneumonia and peptic esophagitis with stricture.’[en.oxforddictionaries.com] Can be associated with weight loss, heartburn, regurgitation (especially with lying flat), and aspiration pneumonias.[online.epocrates.com]
