85 Possible Causes for Bronchiectasis, Cystic Fibrosis, Hyperresonance

  • Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease

    […] caused by genetic mutations of the cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR) gene.[] Patients with coexisting COPD and bronchiectasis may represent a unique phenotype.[] […] cough or expectoration Breathing may be assisted by pursed lips and use of accessory respiratory muscles; patients may adopt the tripod sitting position The chest may be hyperresonant[]

  • Asthma

    It is now well established that there is no single "gene for asthma", in the way that the cystic fibrosis transmembrane receptor is the "gene for cystic fibrosis".[] Buteyko Breathing Clinic Ireland Natural treatment of asthma, emphysema, bronchiectasis and bronchitis using Buteyko Breathing Clinic method.[] fibrosis transmembrane receptor is the gene for cystic fibrosis.[]

  • Cystic Fibrosis

    Cystic fibrosis is usually recognized in infancy or early childhood.[] OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this report is to describe the case of a 43-year-old male with asthma who was hospitalized for an exacerbation of non-cystic fibrosis bronchiectasis[] Respiratory distress with retractions Wheeze or crackles Cough (dry or productive of mucoid or purulent sputum) Increased anteroposterior diameter of chest Clubbing Cyanosis Hyperresonant[]

  • Pneumothorax

    INTRODUCTION - More and more children affected by cystic fibrosis reach adulthood.[] […] diagnosing and treating all forms of respiratory illness and lung disease, including asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), interstitial lung disease (ILD), and bronchiectasis[] Patients with pneumothorax present with sudden-onset dyspnea, ipsilateral chest pain, diminished breath sounds, and hyperresonant percussion on the affected side.[]

  • Spontaneous Pneumothorax

    Pulmonary Langerhans cell histiocytosis Cystic fibrosis Pneumocystis jirovecii pneumonia Alpha-1 antitrypsin deficiency Tuberous sclerosis complex with lymphangioleiomyomatosis[] […] four (36.3%) had chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), three (27.3%) had granulomatous lung disease, two (18.2%) had idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis, one (9.1%) had bronchiectasis[] There will be decreased breath sounds on the affected side and hyperresonance to percussion. What is the most likely cause for a spontaneous pneumothorax?[]

  • Chronic Bronchitis

    Author information 1 1 Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine, Department of Medicine. 2 2 Marsico Lung Institute, Cystic Fibrosis Research Center, and. 3 3 Center for Environmental[] […] mucus clearing capabilities in the lungs that help move mucus from lower to central airways, resulting in an ever-worsening secretion clearance challenge and ultimately, bronchiectasis[] As the disease progresses, patients often develop decreased breath sounds (likelihood ratio [LR] 10.2 for breath sound score less than or equal to 9), hyperresonance (LR 5.1[]

  • Allergic Bronchopulmonary Aspergillosis

    Utilize este identificador para referenciar este registo: Título: Cystic Fibrosis, Atopy, Asthma and ABPA Autor: Fernandes, A Borrego, LM Leiria-Pinto, P Cavaco, J Palavras-chave[] A 55-year-old woman visited our hospital for an investigation of central bronchiectasis, mucoid impaction and infiltrative shadows on chest CT.[] The physical examination may be normal, or there may be evidence of wheeze, prolongation of the expiratory phase, crackles on auscultation of the lungs, or hyperresonance[]

  • Traumatic Pneumothorax

    Patients with cystic fibrosis have an especially high rate of recurrence.[] […] extremely rare; thoracic endometriosis ) Pulmonary aluminosis Pulmonary Langerhans cell histiocytosis ( histiocytosis X ) rupture of cysts Pulmonary tuberculosis Cystic fibrosis bronchiectasis[] Breath sounds may be diminished and the affected hemithorax hyperresonant to percussion—mainly with larger pneumothoraces.[]

  • Alpha-1 Antitrypsin Deficiency

    Abstract Cystic fibrosis is predominantly an airway disease with marked bronchiectatic changes associated with inflammation, chronic colonization, and progressive airflow[] KEYWORDS: alpha-1 antitrypsin deficiency; bronchiectasis; cystic fibrosis; neutrophil; neutrophil elastase[] Hyperresonant breath sounds : An increased echo quality of the breath sounds when listening with a stethoscope can indicate that there is emphysema, as there is more air and[]

  • Bronchiolitis obliterans with Obstructive Pulmonary Disease

    ( 27925783 ) Rayment J.H....Ratjen F. 2016 5 Constrictive Bronchiolitis in Cystic Fibrosis Adolescents with Refractory Pulmonary Decline. ( 27684511 ) Harris W.T....Clancy[] Histologically, OB is characterized by luminal obstruction with inflammation, granulation tissue, fibrosis and obliteration of the small airways and bronchiectasis.[] References: [5] [1] [2] [13] [14] [10] [15] [16] Diagnostics Physical examination Percussion Hyperresonant lungs Reduced diaphragmatic excursion Relative cardiac dullness[]
