546 Possible Causes for Aspiration Pneumonia, Respiratory Acidosis

  • Acute Bronchitis

    Oxygen supplementation can result in decreased respiratory drive, leading to increased blood levels of carbon dioxide (hypercapnea) and subsequent respiratory acidosis.[en.wikipedia.org] 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

  • Hypercapnia

    As his respiratory acidosis resolved, he regained consciousness quickly and recovered without any neurologic deficits.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] acidosis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] We describe a case of prolonged severe hypercapnia with respiratory acidosis occurring during an episode of near-fatal asthma in an 8-year-old boy, followed by complete recovery[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Pneumonia

    As the patient’s respiratory rate increases to compensate for metabolic acidosis, excess CO2 is eliminated. Normal end-tidal CO2 level is between 35 and 45 mm Hg.[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]

  • Guillain-Barré Syndrome

    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]

  • Coma

    Respiratory pattern (if the patient is not on a ventilator) Deep breathing - acidosis. Regular shallow breathing - drug overdose.[patient.info] Pneumonia can occur from the person’s inability to swallow leading to aspiration , lack of gag reflex or from feeding tube, ( aspiration pneumonia ).[en.wikipedia.org] The goal is to move the patient as much as possible to try to avoid bedsores, atelectasis and pneumonia.[en.wikipedia.org]

  • Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis

    Serious complications arise when the disease affects the swallowing muscles which can lead to aspiration pneumonia or when it affects the respiratory muscles.[med.unc.edu] Morbidity usually occurs from aspiration pneumonia and other medical complications related to mobility.[healthadministration.uc.edu] […] as the result of aspiration (when food or fluid gets into the lungs).[mda.org]

  • Status Epilepticus

(8 October 2016).[en.wikipedia.org] An institutionalized man with severe mental disability and cerebral palsy, admitted from the ED with suspected aspiration pneumonia, died after a long struggle with respiratory[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] of newborn Anoxia of newborn NOS Asphyxia of newborn NOS Hypercapnia of newborn Hypoxemia of newborn Hypoxia of newborn NOS Mixed metabolic and respiratory acidosis of newborn[icd10data.com]

  • 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]
