  • Otitis Media

    Atelectasis leads to a displacement of the drum inward, i.e. a drum retraction .[] Reductions in pneumococcal sepsis were seen in all age groups, with the largest reduction in children younger than 2 years (67%, min-max 56-75%).[] Non suppurative complications (long term) - atelectasis of the TM, cholesteatoma.[]

  • Viral Lower Respiratory Infection

    […] include bilateral perihilar peribronchial thickening and interstitial infiltrates which, particularly in children, due to their small-calibre airways, can result in areas of atelectasis[] Elevated sweat sodium associated with pulmonary oedema in meningococcal sepsis. Eur J Clin Invest 2004 ;34: 576 - 579 5. Perkins GD, McAuley DF, Thickett DR, Gao F.[] If they have severe sepsis , see sepsis management for what to do next. Prognosis[]

  • Bacterial Pneumonia

    This results in atelectasis.[] Bacterial pneumonia and gut bacteria-associated sepsis, frequently seen in alcoholics, can be controlled through the polarization of macrophage phenotypes.[] […] active suction of secretions, chest physiotherapy, positioning to promote dependent drainage, and incentive spirometry to enhance elimination of purulent sputum and to avoid atelectasis[]

  • Subphrenic Abscess

    There might be a dry cough due to an atelectasis in the lung of the affected side.[] Patients with peritonitis have a high risk of developing sepsis, and sepsis is related to symptoms like high fever, hypotension, tachycardia, tachypnea, impairment of renal[] Dullness to percussion and decreased breath sounds are typical when basilar atelectasis, pneumonia, or pleural effusion occurs.[]

  • 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[]

  • Splenectomy

    If splenomegally is present, then significant atelectasis and restriction on lung excursion can be noticed.[] This postsplenectomy sepsis is discussed further.[] None of the patients subsequently admitted for infection or sepsis had received boosters.[]

  • Esophageal Perforation

    The chest CT showed a right-sided aortic arch, anterosuperior mediastinal gas density shadow and atelectasis of both inferior lobus of lungs ( Figures 1c and 1d ).[] As a result, nosocomial sepsis occurred, causing death in the third month after surgical treatment.[] Delayed diagnosis may result in a fatal clinical course due to mediastinitis and subsequent 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[] He was treated for an asthma exacerbation and sepsis. Despite treatment, his respiratory rate remained elevated although his hypoxaemia improved.[] 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).[]
