585 Possible Causes for Atelectasis, Pulmonary Embolism

  • 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] embolism and aortic dissection that can present with similar findings.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Mucus plugging and atelectasis are not rare and usually respond to effective treatment.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Atelectasis

    atelectasis.[en.wikipedia.org] METHODS: Retrospectively identified CT pulmonary angiogram examinations that did not show pulmonary embolism but contained nonaerated lungs were classified as atelectasis[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Platelike atelectasis probably occurs because of obstruction of a small bronchus and is observed in states of hypoventilation, pulmonary embolism, or lower respiratory tract[emedicine.com]

  • Pleural Effusion

    Arterial blood gases, pleural effusion, and atelectasis were compared between groups. Atelectasis and pleural effusion was reduced in experimental group.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] If the diagnosis of pulmonary embolism is delayed, the effusion may become loculated.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] A Pleural Effusion is often associated with atelectasis (collapse of lung tissue ): Atelectasis is an abnormal condition characterized by the collapse of lung tissue, preventing[cardiachealth.org]

  • Aspiration Pneumonia

    Aspiration of particulate matter causes airways obstruction and atelectasis. Most commonly there is a shifting mixed infiltrate in the lower lobes.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] -- Chapter 94: Thermal Lung Injury and Acute Smoke Inhalation -- Part 13:Pulmonary Complications of Nonpulmonary Disorders -- Chapter 95: Noninfectious Pulmonary Complications[worldcat.org] Pleurisy (Inflammation of the tissues that line the lungs and chest cavity) -Pleural effusion (A buildup of fluid between the tissues that line the lungs and the chest) -Atelectasis[quizlet.com]

  • 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] Pulmonary embolism masquerading as high altitude pulmonary edema at high altitude. High Alt Med Biol. 17:353-358, 2016.[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]

  • Pulmonary Embolism

    The most common chest radiographic finding in patients with PE was atelectasis and/or parenchymal areas of increased opacity; however, the prevalence was not significantly[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The history and clinical examination of a case of pulmonary embolism are usually not sufficient to establish the diagnosis of pulmonary embolism with certainty.[symptoma.com] Signs that may be present in PE are; Westermark's sign (oligemia in area of involvement), increased size of a hilum (caused by thrombus impaction), atelectasis with elevation[med-ed.virginia.edu]

  • Pulmonary Consolidation

    In the case of atelectasis, the goal of treatment is to re-expand the collapsed lung tissue.[home-remedies-for-you.com] The diagnostic accuracy of chest sonography in pulmonary embolism was 85%-90%.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] embolism with subsequent infarction.[symptoma.com]

  • Morbid Obesity

    Moreover, atelectasis remained unchanged for at least 24 h in MO patients, whereas atelectasis disappeared in the nonobese.[journals.lww.com] embolism Pseudotumor cerebri Certain cancers[gwdocs.com] There were two perioperative deaths, one from pulmonary embolism and one from acute pulmonary obstruction.[dsfacts.com]

  • 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] A computed tomography angiography (CTA) was negative for pulmonary embolism and showed bilateral infiltrates. The Berlin criteria for severe ARDS were met.[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]

  • Pulmonary Infarction

    The most useful radiographic sign was elevation of the diaphragm often with slight atelectasis and a small unilateral effusion.[thorax.bmj.com] […] pleuritic pain in the area of the embolus) with 24 patients with pulmonary embolism but without infarction.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Presumably infarcts are confused with or indistinguishable from atelectasis or pneumonia.[med-ed.virginia.edu]
