1,803 Possible Causes for Atelectasis

  • Asthma

    Complications There are several conditions that can complicate asthma; they include 1,6,16 : atelectasis pneumonia mucoid impaction of the airways pneumothorax pneumomediastinum[radiopaedia.org] Mucus plugging and atelectasis are not rare and usually respond to effective treatment.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] This causes portions of the lung to appear more dense and cast more of a shadow on a chest x-ray (this is called atelectasis).[uichildrens.org]

  • Influenza

    Intrinsic host susceptibility to viral infections plays a major role in determining infection severity in different individuals. In human influenza virus infections, multiple genetic association studies have identified specific human gene variants that might contribute to enhanced susceptibility or resistance to influenza.[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Pulmonary Edema

    The anesthesiologists should determine appropriate anesthetic regimens according to the examination results to avoid acute atelectasis and postoperative pulmonary edema.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] pulmonale, left ventricular dysfunction, cardiac tamponade, and hypovolemia) and acute respiratory failure (pneumothorax, acute pulmonary edema, large pleural effusion, major atelectasis[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Lung consolidations may have a variety of causes including infection, pulmonary embolism, lung cancer and metastasis, compression atelectasis, obstructive atelectasis, and[doi.org]

  • Atelectasis

    atelectasis.[en.wikipedia.org] There is a high incidence of atelectasis in asbestos workers. Post-surgery atelectasis improves well.[symptoma.com] You may develop atelectasis if you breathe in a foreign object. Atelectasis can make breathing difficult, particularly if you already have lung disease.[mayoclinic.org]

  • Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome

    […] weight approach is imperfect in patients with ARDS because the amount of aerated lung varies considerably due to differences in inflammation, consolidation, flooding, and atelectasis[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The Berlin definition guides the clinician in terms of timing of the onset, chest X-ray findings (opacities not consistent with effusion, atelectasis, or nodules) and oxygenation[symptoma.com] Alveolar protective ventilation utilizing appropriate positive-end expiratory pressure (PEEP) minimizes atelectasis and shearing injury.[hamilton-medical.com]

  • Pseudomonas

    Pseudomonas veronii MEK700 was isolated from a biotrickling filter cleaning 2-butanone-loaded waste air. The strain is able to grow on 2-butanone and 2-hexanol. The genes for degradation of short chain alkyl methyl ketones were identified by transposon mutagenesis using a newly designed transposon, mini-Tn5495, and[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Bronchogenic Carcinoma

    The mean SUVs of FDG of the tumor and the atelectasis were 8.92 and 1.28. T1-SPECT could not distinguish the atelectasis from the carcinoma.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Atelectasis occurred in two patients (2.8%), empyema in one (1.4%), and bronchial fistula in one (1.4%).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Of 40 patients, 2 (5.0%) had pulmonary atelectasis develop, 2 (5.0%) arrhythmia, 2 (5.0%) bronchopleural fistula, and 1 (2.5%) airway stenosis after operation.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Rib Fracture

    Analgesia Pulmonary toilet Treatment usually requires opioid analgesics, although opioids can also depress respiration and worsen atelectasis.[merckmanuals.com] If the patient is not breathing normally, there are issues such as atelectasis, hypoxia, pneumonia, etc. All populations should wear seat belts when in a motor vehicle.[symptoma.com] Hemothorax, Pneumothorax, Pneumonia ) Pain control is critical to reduce the risk of Splinting, Atelectasis and secondary Pneumonia IV.[fpnotebook.com]

  • Atypical Pneumonia

    Subsegmental and sometimes segmental atelectasis from small airway obstruction may occur.[radiopaedia.org] […] that suggest the presence of pneumonia include air bronchograms; the silhouette sign; parapneumonic effusions; and complications of pneumonia, such as lung abscesses, and atelectasis[emedicine.medscape.com]

  • Bronchial Adenocarcinoma

    […] carcinoma o Squamous cell ca (30-35%) o Adenocarcinoma (25-35%) o Small cell or oat cell (25%) o Large cell undifferentiated (10%) · Squamous cell ca o Central Location (2/3) o Atelectasis[learningradiology.com] Central tumours generally produce symptoms of cough, dyspnea, atelectasis, postobstructive pneumonia, wheezing, and hemoptysis; whereas, peripheral tumours , in addition to[pathophys.org] • T3 - Tumor with involvement of chest wall, diaphragm, mediastinum pleura, pericardium, main stem bronchus 2 cm from carina, entire lung atelectasis• T4 - Tumor with invasion[slideshare.net]
