875 Possible Causes for Atelectasis, Sepsis

  • 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[] METHODS: Serum bilirubin on ICU admission was measured in 1006 patients with sepsis.[] 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[]

  • Subphrenic Abscess

    There might be a dry cough due to an atelectasis in the lung of the affected side.[] […] has determined conversion to open technique) is admitted 3 weeks after surgery, being diagnosed with an esophageal leekage witch maintains a large subphrenic abscess with sepsis[] Dullness to percussion and decreased breath sounds are typical when basilar atelectasis, pneumonia, or pleural effusion occurs.[]

  • Bacterial Pneumonia

    Bacterial pneumonia and gut bacteria-associated sepsis, frequently seen in alcoholics, can be controlled through the polarization of macrophage phenotypes.[] Hospitalizations with septicemia (bacteria in the blood) or sepsis -- as the first-listed, principal, or a secondary diagnosis -- increased from 621,000 in 2000 to 1,141,000[] Two patients with acute pulmonary coccidioidomycosis presenting as acute bacterial pneumonia and sepsis are described.[]

  • Relapsed Small Cell Lung Cancer

    There was one treatment-related death due to febrile neutropenia and sepsis.[] One patient died of treatment-related sepsis.[] Comparing topotecan with BSC, infection grade 2 was 14% versus 12% and sepsis 4% versus 1%; other grade 3/4 events included vomiting 3% versus 0, diarrhea 6% versus 0, dyspnea[]

  • Streptococcus Pyogenes Pneumonia

    […] lobar/multilobar consolidation Pleural effusion (90%) Pneumatocoele In adults Patchy bronchopneumonia of segmental distribution, frequency bilateral May be associated with atelectasis[] (main cause of community acquired pneumonia and meningitis in children and the elderly, and of septicemia in HIV-infected persons.)[] Six of thirteen residents required acute hospital care, and the index case died with sepsis.[]

  • Asthma

    Complications There are several conditions that can complicate asthma; they include 1,6,16 : atelectasis pneumonia mucoid impaction of the airways pneumothorax pneumomediastinum[] Founded in 1905 to combat TB, the ATS has grown to tackle asthma, COPD, lung cancer, sepsis, acute respiratory distress, and sleep apnea, among other diseases.[] Mucus plugging and atelectasis are not rare and usually respond to effective treatment.[]

  • Chest Trauma

    A 29-year-old patient after blunt chest trauma with right lung atelectasis and pulmonary empyema was referred for lung ventilation and perfusion scintigraphy before right-sided[] Delayed diagnosis may result in a fatal clinical course due to mediastinitis and subsequent sepsis.[] Rib fractures without flailing can be painful, resulting in splinting, atelectasis, and hypoxemia due to ventilation/perfusion mismatching.[]

  • Rib Fracture

    Analgesia Pulmonary toilet Treatment usually requires opioid analgesics, although opioids can also depress respiration and worsen atelectasis.[] The incidences of ventilator-associated pneumonia, tracheostomy, sepsis, prolonged ventilation, deep vein thrombosis, pulmonary embolism, wound infection, and postoperative[] […] develop paradoxical inward movement of the flail segment which prevents effective inspiration and require prolonged mechanical ventilation which can lead to pneumonia and sepsis[]

  • Pneumococcal Pneumonia

    […] lobar/multilobar consolidation Pleural effusion (90%) Pneumatocoele In adults Patchy bronchopneumonia of segmental distribution, frequency bilateral May be associated with atelectasis[] Owing to ongoing sepsis with the development of multiple organ failure and the obvious failure of appropriate medical therapy, both patients underwent pneumonectomy with a[] Inflammation of the sac surrounding the heart (pericarditis) Blockage of the airway that allows air into the lungs (endobronchial obstruction), with collapse within the lungs (atelectasis[]

  • Atelectasis

    atelectasis.[] Adults can also develop microatelectasis from excessive oxygen therapy, a severe generalized infection (sepsis), or many other factors that injure the lining of the alveoli[] There is a high incidence of atelectasis in asbestos workers. Post-surgery atelectasis improves well.[]
