12 Possible Causes for Barrel Chest, Medication Noncompliance, P Pulmonale

  • Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease

    noncompliance, cardiac ischemia, abnormal heart rhythms, kidney failure, pulmonary emboli, hypertension, and infections.[13] Treatment efforts are directed towards decreasing[en.wikipedia.org] On the lateral radiograph, a "barrel chest" with widened anterior-posterior diameter may be visualized.[radiopaedia.org] Thoracic examination reveals the following: Hyperinflation (barrel chest) Wheezing – Frequently heard on forced and unforced expiration Diffusely decreased breath sounds Hyperresonance[emedicine.medscape.com]

  • Chronic Right-Sided Congestive Heart Failure

    Factors aggravating heart failure • Myocardial ischemia or infarct • Dietary sodium excess • Excess fluid intake • Medication noncompliance • Arrhythmias • Intercurrent illness[slideshare.net] Wall – inspect chest wall for signs of trauma, barrel chest from COPD or accessory muscle use.[medictests.com] pulmonale.[escardio.org]
