94 Possible Causes for Biot's Respiration

  • Brain Stem Infarction

    Brain stem infarction is a potentially life-threatening condition which develops due to focal ischemia of the midbrain, pons, and medulla oblongata. It results in neurologic deficits involving the respiratory, cardiovascular, speech, swallowing, hearing and ocular movement centers located within the brain stem. Diagnosis is[…][]

  • Cerebral Hemorrhage

    Intracerebral hemorrhage is a rare event during pregnancy that can result in serious morbidity and mortality for the mother and infant. In this article, we describe a case involving a multiparous woman at 34 weeks gestation who presented with a 5-cm intracerebral bleed. Within 2 hours of presenting, she underwent[…][]

  • Acute Respiratory Failure

    The treatment of choice for patients with respiratory failure of neuromuscular origin, especially in patients with hypercapnic respiratory acidosis, is noninvasive ventilation (NIV). Endotracheal intubation and invasive ventilation are indicated for patients with severe respiratory compromise or failure of NIV. In recent[…][]

  • Brain Death

    Please log in to edit this article. Edit German : Hirntod 1 Definition Brain death is a definition for a person's death. The determination of brain death is an important step that has to take place before explantation of an organ to be used for organ donation or transplantation. 2 Legal situation 2.1 Legal situation[…][]

  • Brain Stem Hemorrhage

    We report findings from an autopsy of a male in his 40s who died of a brain stem hemorrhage associated with cerebral amyloid angiopathy (CAA), senile plaques (SPs) and neurofibrillary tangles (NFTs), which are histopathological changes associated with Alzheimer's disease (AD). Our immunohistochemical study[…][]

  • Brain Stem Herniation

    Abstract Patients with terminal brain stem herniation experience global physiological consequences and represent a challenging population in critical care practice as a result of multiple factors. The first factor is severe depression of consciousness, with resulting compromise in airway stability and lung ventilation.[…][]

  • Central Nervous System Disorder

    OBJECTIVE: To examine the efficacy of postural strategy training using a personal transport assistance robot (PTAR) for patients with central nervous system disorders. DESIGN: Single-group intervention trial. SETTING: Rehabilitation center at a university hospital. PARTICIPANTS: Outpatients (N 8; 5 men, 3 women;[…][]

  • Sleep Apnea

    This polysomnogram demonstrates central sleep apnea and Biot respiration in a patient receiving long-term morphine for chronic pain.[] respiration.[] The Biot pattern may be irregular without any type of periodicity, or it can consist of runs of similar-sized breaths alternating with central apneas.[]

  • Uncinate Seizure

    Biot's respiration is caused by damage to the medulla oblongata due to strokes or trauma or by pressure on the medulla due to uncal or tentorial herniation.[]

  • Obstructive Sleep Apnea
