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.[] Aspiration pneumonia: The coughing of bronchitis can make you choke on your food if you cough while eating.[] ) Bronchoscopy (to exclude foreign body aspiration, tuberculosis, tumors, and other chronic diseases) Influenza tests Spirometry Laryngoscopy (to exclude epiglottitis) See[]

  • Flail Chest

    acidosis despite the tachypnea. one more thing about tension pneumo's.....flightnurse2b is correct![] pneumonia early in the course of his stay.[] […] pain causes tachypnea,too). i'd suspect that the alkalosis won't last very long with a pneumothorax or tension pneumo. they can't compensate that long and will flip over to respiratory[]

  • Hypercapnia

    As his respiratory acidosis resolved, he regained consciousness quickly and recovered without any neurologic deficits.[] acidosis.[] 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[]

  • 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.[] […] at risk of aspiration pneumonia which usually affects the right lung and is caused by anaerobes from the oropharynx.[] Aspiration pneumonia Aspiration pneumonia occurs when you inhale food, drink, vomit or saliva into your lungs.[]

  • Guillain-Barré Syndrome

    GBS mortality, estimated at about 5 percent, results from respiratory distress syndrome, aspiration pneumonia, sepsis, pulmonary embolism, and arrhythmias [9].[] Significant complications of GBS include mechanical ventilatory failure, aspiration pneumonia, sepsis, joint contractures, and deep vein thrombosis.[]

  • Coma

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

  • 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.[] Morbidity usually occurs from aspiration pneumonia and other medical complications related to mobility.[] […] as the result of aspiration (when food or fluid gets into the lungs).[]

  • Status Epilepticus

    […] muscles followed by hypoxia and respiratory acidosis.[] pneumonia, and longer time on the ventilator.[] Hypoxia Aspiration pneumonitis Respiratory acidosis Aspiration pneumonitis Cardiovascular Arrythmias Tachycardia Hypotension / Hypertension Other Lactic acidosis Rhabdomyolysis[]

  • Asphyxia

  • Bulbar Poliomyelitis

    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[] […] 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.[]
