176 Possible Causes for Aspiration Pneumonia, Motor Neuron Disease, Respiratory Acidosis

  • Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis

    Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), also known as motor neuron disease (MND), is terminal, progressive neurological condition for which there are no curative treatments.[] Serious complications arise when the disease affects the swallowing muscles which can lead to aspiration pneumonia or when it affects the respiratory muscles.[] Morbidity usually occurs from aspiration pneumonia and other medical complications related to mobility.[]

  • Hypercapnia

    As his respiratory acidosis resolved, he regained consciousness quickly and recovered without any neurologic deficits.[] Pharmacologic Central Respiratory Depressants: opiates, sedatives, etc Restrictive PFT’s Decreased MIP Motor Neuron Disease Neuropathy Neuromuscular Junction Disease Myopathy[] acidosis.[]

  • Bulbar Poliomyelitis

    Mechanical ventilation for amyotrophic lateral sclerosis/motor neuron disease..[] Other potential complications include pneumonia (including aspiration pneumonia ) and urinary tract infection .[] 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[]

  • Myasthenia Gravis

    The co-occurrence of myasthenia gravis with motor neurone disease is not a very common association and may pose problem and confusion in the minds of the treating physician[] Complications Aspiration pneumonia due to throat muscle weakness. Acute respiratory failure during an exacerbation.[] We also included 8 patients with ocular MG, 3 with Lambert-Eaton myasthenic syndrome, 5 with motor neuron disease, and 9 with other diagnoses as comparators for the serological[]

  • Myotonia Congenita

    However, a deficiency of the enzyme has been described in many conditions, including myopathies, neuropathies, and motor neuron disease.[] Early symptoms in a child may include: Gagging Difficulty swallowing Stiff movements that improve when they are repeated Possible complications may include: Aspiration pneumonia[] However, deficiency of the MAD has been described in many conditions, including myopathies, neuropathies, and motor neuron disease 3 .[]

  • Cor Pulmonale

    […] restrictive defect were responsible for the development of chronic respiratory acidosis and cor pulmonale.[] Neuromuscular disorders causing chronic hypoventilation - eg, polio , myasthenia gravis , motor neurone disease .[] Direct injury can be from pneumonia or aspiration of gastric contents.[]

  • Lateral Medullary Syndrome

    Arterial blood gas analysis revealed respiratory acidosis and hypoxia (pH 7.29, pCO 2 59.6 mm Hg, pO 2 63.6 mm Hg on 60% oxygen).[] : Motor neurone disease mixed: Brown-Séquard syndrome cord syndrome ( Posterior Anterior Central / Syringomyelia ) Subacute combined degeneration of spinal cord (B12) Cauda[] With early identification and treatment, including early swallowing evaluations, the medical team can prevent aspiration pneumonia, intubation, and death from pneumonia.[]

  • Tensilon

    acidosis associated with a PaCO2 of 50 mmHg, or hypokalemia & metabolic acidosis[] It may produce a positive response in motor neuron disease and in some neuropathies and myopathies.[] If left untreated, MG can lead to significant morbidity and mortality, including myasthenic crisis and recurrent aspiration pneumonia.[]

  • Spinal Paralytic Poliomyelitis
