306 Possible Causes for Bacterial Pneumonia, Cor Pulmonale, Tachycardia

  • Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease

    […] include Haemophilus influenzae, Moraxella catarrhalis, Streptococcus pneumoniae, and Staphylococcus aureus. 1 No defined empiric antibiotic therapy recommendations exist[pharmacytimes.com] The severity of COPD correlates with various arrhythmic manifestations such as atrial fibrillation, atrial flutter, and either sustained or nonsustained ventricular tachycardia[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Edema in cor pulmonale. Lancet 1975 ; ii: 1289 – 1290. Google Scholar 27 Richens JM Howard P. Oedema in cor pulmonale. Clin Sci 1982 ; 62: 255 – 259.[doi.org]

  • Pulmonary Infarction

    […] pregnancy and older age Small infarcts usually have minimal symptoms; if bronchial circulation is inadequate (so reduced collateral circulation), then have shortness of breath, tachycardia[pathologyoutlines.com] pulmonale, resulting in incapacitating dyspnea on exertion, and disability.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] -Increased HR: due to hypoxemia/fear/pain Tachycardia: due to increased rate of lung inflation -Systemic hypotension: reduced cardiac return and decrease in left ventricular[quizlet.com]

  • Pulmonary Embolism

    Neurological examination returned to base line status but sinus tachycardia and low saturation value on room air were continuing.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] pulmonale in contrast to the well known cor pulmonale of chronic nature associated with progressive enlargement of the right side of the heart secondary to certain pulmonary[doi.org] Tracheobronchomalacia is an uncommon condition, which presents with similar symptoms to pulmonary embolism, including hypoxemia, tachycardia, and shortness of breath.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Acute Bronchitis

    It is important to have a doctor examine you for secondary bacterial pneumonia, which may require an antibiotic.[drugs.com] Pneumonia should be suspected in patients with tachypnea, tachycardia, dyspnea, or lung findings suggestive of pneumonia, and radiography is warranted.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] When the FEV1 falls below about 0.8 L, patients are at risk of hypoxemia, hypercapnia, and cor pulmonale.[msdmanuals.com]

  • Extrinsic Allergic Alveolitis

    The symptoms are non-specific, often insidious in onset and frequently misdiagnosed as influenza or a viral or bacterial pneumonia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] She had a low-grade fever together with evidence of sinus tachycardia, tachypnoea and bibasilar fine crackles.[erj.ersjournals.com] -Compensation may be payable Complications: -progressive lung fibrosis -type 1 respiratory failure -pulmonary hypertension and cor pulmonale Prognosis: -the acute form generally[clumsylostmedicalstudent.wordpress.com]

  • Congestive Heart Failure

    (The latter guards against the most common form of bacterial pneumonia.) Both vaccines are generally safe and seldom cause any severe reactions.[heart.org] ECG and telemetry revealed relatively slow supraventricular tachycardia, which did not trigger the alert, and catheter ablation successfully controlled the heart failure.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Heart Failure and Cor Pulmonale Sections: Heart Failure, Cor Pulmonale, Further Readings. Topics Discussed: heart diseases.[web.archive.org]

  • Multifocal Atrial Tachycardia

    These conditions include: Bacterial pneumonia Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) Congestive heart failure Lung cancer Lung failure Pulmonary embolism You may be[nlm.nih.gov] Multifocal (or multiform) atrial tachycardia (MAT) is an abnormal heart rhythm, specifically a type of supraventricular tachycardia, that is particularly common in older people[en.wikipedia.org] The only differences between these two groups were incidence of cor pulmonale, and right axis deviation, right bundle branch block, pulmonale P in electrocardiogram.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • 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[herbpathy.com] Hypotension, tachycardia, fever, and shock may also occur. Slowly developing atelectasis is usually asymptomatic sometimes causes minor symptoms.[respiratoryupdates.wordpress.com] If the blood oxygen level is low, oxygen therapy may help prevent complications such as cor pulmonale (heart disease related to lung disease).[generalhealthtopics.com]

  • Extrapulmonary Alveolar Hypoventilation

Tuberculosis.[patient.info] 233 Supraventricular Tachycardia 242 Temporary Cardiac Pacing 253 Permanent Pacemakers and Antiarrhythmic Devices 261 Evaluation of the Low to Intermediate Risk Patient with[books.google.com] Mixed cardiac and pulmonary disorders are also common sources of dyspnea 6, 7 and include COPD with pulmonary hypertension and cor pulmonale, deconditioning, pulmonary emboli[aafp.org]

  • Chronic Right-Sided Congestive Heart Failure

    Alternatives Conditions with similar symptoms may include left-sided heart failure, congestive heart failure, pneumonia, viral or bacterial infection, and pulmonary fibrosis[nmihi.com] Electrocardiogram • Old MI or recent MI • Arrhythmia • Some forms of Cardiomyopathy are tachycardia related • LBBB may help in management 28.[slideshare.net] These include atrial fibrillation and ventricular tachycardia.[healio.com]
