114 Possible Causes for Atelectasis, Bacterial Pneumonia, Mediastinal Shift, Tracheal Deviation

  • Obstructive Atelectasis

    […] pus bacterial pneumonia blood post-traumatic lung injury foreign body Plain radiograph / CT The imaging features of atelectasis are similar on plain radiographs and CT with[] Atelectasis resulting from thickening of the pleura is termed as rounded atelectasis.[] […] onset; progressive with exacerbations Productive cough with thick, purulent sputum; dypsnea; and wheezing Obstructive airflow limitation, both fixed and reversible Focal pneumonia[] Chest X-ray revealed atelectasis of the right upper lobe (RUL) with ipsilateral mediastinal shift ( Fig. 1 ). X-ray on admission was normal.[]

  • Atelectasis

    Causes of Atelectasis TB Tumour Injury Blood Clot Tumour Pneumonia Viral Infection Fungal Infection Bacterial Infection If not treated properly, Atelectasis may cause Lack[] After 2 days ceftriaxone sodium administration, her chest radiograph revealed a rightward mediastinal shift caused by atelectasis of the upper portion of the right lung.[] atelectasis.[] Pneumonia is an inflammation of the lung tissue as a result of bacterial, viral or other infection.[]

  • Bronchogenic Carcinoma

    Radiolgical criteria: Pleural effusion without mediastinal shift due to underlying obstructive collapse 47. Chest wall invasion C.P: Focal chest pain.[] 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.[] Atelectasis occurred in two patients (2.8%), empyema in one (1.4%), and bronchial fistula in one (1.4%).[] Arrhythmia occurred in 12 patients, atelectasis in eight patients, and pneumonia in five patients.[]

  • Pleural Effusion

    pneumonia malignancy viral infection pulmonary embolism tuberculosis collagen vascular disorder Prognosis depends on the cause of the pleural effusion Presentation Symptoms[] A 13-year-old boy with no risk factors for lung cancer presented with a massive left-sided pleural effusion and a mediastinal shift on chest radiography and computed tomography[] Arterial blood gases, pleural effusion, and atelectasis were compared between groups. Atelectasis and pleural effusion was reduced in experimental group.[] Large effusion: complete shadowing of the lung with mediastinal shift and tracheal deviation away from the effusion Lateral decubitus view : demonstrates whether fluid is[]

  • Pneumothorax

    Bacterial pneumonia : Certain forms of pneumonia caused by staphylococcus, streptococcus and other types of bacteria may cause a lung to collapse.[] Large pneumothorax with mediastinal shift 17. Large pneumothorax with mediastinal shift 18. Tension Pneumothorax 19. Tension pneumothorax 20. Tension pneumothorax 21.[] These two conditions are known as pneumothorax and atelectasis. Commonly Confused Terms Let's face it.[] Note the tracheal deviation to the left. Prognosis If the pneumothorax was an isolated event and treatment was initiated early, the prognosis is excellent.[]

  • Foreign Body in the Bronchus

    This sign is particularly helpful when chest radiography shows atelectasis or pneumonia.[] There may be lung collapse with severe mediastinal shift or obstructive emphysema.[] Examination Asymmetrical chest movement Tracheal deviation Chest signs such as wheeze or decreased breath sounds. The respiratory examination may be completely normal.[] Clinical examination and lung ultrasound revealed an atelectasis of the left lower lobe. The etiologic assessment concluded to a bronchial foreign body.[]

  • Bronchial Obstruction

    Pneumonia, another inflammation of the lungs, can occur because of a bacterial or viral infection.[] Computed tomography revealed a large endobronchial lesion causing occlusion of the left main bronchus and significant mediastinal shift to the left.[] The interval between the improvement of atelectasis and the development of pneumothorax varied by less than three weeks.[] Conclusion: Obstruction of the right main bronchus by a soft tissue mass resulting in airless "drowned" right lung with subsequent volume loss and mediastinal shift.[]

  • Malignant Pleural Effusion

    The 45 patients with effusions of infectious origin (INF) were mainly intensive care unit patients who suffered from bacterial pneumonia (n   24), septicaemia in part with[] A patient presented to the emergency department with a malignant pleural effusion associated with shortness of breath, and radiographic evidence of mediastinal shift and hypotension[] Pulmonary disorders associated with atelectasis, possibly due to endobronchial obstruction, lead to more negative intrathoracic pressures and cause an increase of pleural[] Chest radiograph reveals right upper lobe collapse and a moderate sized right-sided pleural effusion with no mediastinal shift.[]

  • Compression Atelectasis

    Improvement of compression atelectasis was confirmed by their chest computed tomographic scans.[] Mediastinal Shift  Usually greatest in area of greatest loss of volume  Upper lobe, shift of upper trachea Signs of Atelectasis Compensatory Overinflation  With larger[] (I've seen probably 2 dozen spontaneous pneumothoraces, and none of them had tracheal deviation) Yes, resonance should be increased on the affected side in both cases.[] Caused by O2 toxicity; neonatal or adult respiratory distress syndrome; infection Signs and symptoms of atelectasis Dyspnea Cyanosis Tracheal deviation Uneven chest expansion[]

    Missing: Bacterial Pneumonia
  • Tension Pneumothorax

    Coccidioidomycosis Hydatid disease Pertussis Acute bacterial pneumonia Staphylococcal septicemia AIDS (Pneumocystis carinii, Mycobacterium tuberculosis, atypical mycobacteria[] He was clinically stable without hypoxia or hypotension, and the initial chest x-ray study showed a large pneumothorax without mediastinal shift.[] Bacterial pneumonia: Certain forms of pneumonia caused by staphylococcus, streptococcus and other types of bacteria may cause a lung to collapse Other factors may also cause[] An elevated hemidiaphragm implies volume loss in that hemithorax due to atelectasis, hypoplasia or a diaphragmatic hernia.[]
