362 Possible Causes for Asymmetric Chest, Diminished Respiratory Excursion

  • Rib Fracture

    […] pain • Decreased or absent breath sounds of affected lung • Decreased blood pressure • Asymmetric chest expansion If a pneumothorax is suspected, emergency medical services[] Clinical examination showed an asymmetrical Moro reflex and a haematoma over the left clavicle.[] […] athlete exhibits any of the following signs and or symptoms: • Anxiety/restlessness • Painful breathing • Increased heart rate • Cyanosis • Distended neck veins • Severe chest[]

  • Tracheal Foreign Body

    Examination Stridor indicates a partial obstruction of the upper airway by an inhaled foreign body Clinically there may be asymmetric chest movement and/or asymmetric breath[] Examination Asymmetrical chest movement Tracheal deviation Chest signs such as wheeze or decreased breath sounds. The respiratory examination may be completely normal.[] Inspiratory and expiratory chest x-rays may reveal asymmetrical lung filling or may be normal.[]

  • Foreign Body in the Bronchus

    Examination Asymmetrical chest movement Tracheal deviation Chest signs such as wheeze or decreased breath sounds. The respiratory examination may be completely normal.[] Answer and interpretation Chest radiographs may show: radio-opaque foreign bodies obstructive hyperinflation (asymmetric) collapse/ atelectasis normal (15% of lower airway[]

  • Ankylosing Spondylitis

    Joint involvement is usually asymmetric, involving the hips, shoulder girdle (glenohumeral, acromioclavicular, and sternoclavicular joints), joints of the chest wall (costovertebral[] Examination Measure chest expansion, lateral lumbar flexion and forward lumbar flexion.[] Other peripheral joints are less often and less severely affected, usually as asymmetrical oligoarthritis.[]

  • Neonatal Respiratory Distress Syndrome

    chest shape and deviation of the cardiac sounds.[] Lung auscultation may show asymmetrical chest movement in pneumothorax or crackles in pneumonia, or be completely clear in transient tachypnea or persistent pulmonary hypertension[] In addition to respiratory distress, a severe air leak condition may cause hypotension (due to decreases in cardiac output), muffled heart tones, abdominal distention, asymmetric[]

  • Phrenic Nerve Palsy

    Chest X-ray done revealed slight haziness on the right side and the right hemidiaphragm was at a higher level as compared to left [Figure 1] .[] On examination, he had diminished movements of the right hand and asymmetric Moro reflex. His right arm remained in adduction and internal rotation.[]

  • Viral Lower Respiratory Infection

    Palpation is an important aspect of clinical assessment in identifying lumps, asymmetrical chest wall movement, crepitations, apex beat (if felt on right side may indicate[]

  • Decreased Lung Compliance

    Robotic assisted surgery (RAS) represents a great challenge for anesthesiology due to the increased intraabdomial pressures required for surgical optimal approach. The changes in lung physiology are difficult to predict and require fast decision making in order to prevent altered gas exchange. The aim of this[…][]

  • Bulbar Poliomyelitis

    Tracheotomy was performed on 181 of 351 patients with bulbar poliomyelitis. The essential indication for tracheotomy was secretional obstruction of the respiratory tract that could not be relieved by postural drainage and aspiration. Comparison of mortality rates in this series with those of previous series in which[…][]

  • Bacterial Pneumonia

    A 74-year-old man with poorly controlled diabetes mellitus was admitted to our hospital because of severe respiratory disturbance, fever, and sputum. We found massive consolidation of the right lung and nodular shadows on the left lung on chest X-ray, and detected influenza virus and Streptococcus pneumoniae[…][]
