54 Possible Causes for Bronchiectasis, Scuba Diving

  • Sinusitis

    Other risk factors include exposure to cigarette smoke, nasal polyps (POL-ips), and changes in pressure (such as during flying or scuba diving).[] Rhinosinusitis and bronchiectasis[] Smokers, those with large adenoids, tooth infections, those travelling to high altitudes or scuba diving may also be at risk of sinusitis. Who does sinusitis affect?[]

  • Otitis Media

    Woakes' syndrome is characterised by severe recurrent nasal polyps in early childhood with broadening of the nose, nasal dyscrinia, frontal sinus aplasia and bronchiectasis[] The pressure in the middle ear rises when the airplane you are travelling on descends or when you ascend while scuba diving.[]

  • Pneumothorax

    […] diagnosing and treating all forms of respiratory illness and lung disease, including asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), interstitial lung disease (ILD), and bronchiectasis[] Following standard procedure can reduce the risk of a pneumothorax when scuba diving. You can decrease your risk by not smoking.[] […] extremely rare; thoracic endometriosis ) Pulmonary aluminosis Pulmonary Langerhans cell histiocytosis ( histiocytosis X ) rupture of cysts Pulmonary tuberculosis Cystic fibrosis bronchiectasis[]

  • Spontaneous Pneumothorax

    […] 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[] Putatively recurrence-prone lifestyle activities (smoking status, flying habits, and scuba diving) and actual occurrence of recurrences were correlated.[] […] of 3. 7 In adults, it can present as sinus and pulmonary disease (chronic cough with sputum production, chronic sinusitis with nasal polyposis, radiographic evidence of bronchiectasis[]

  • Compression Atelectasis

    Conditions that increase the risk of bronchiectasis Bronchial obstruction caused by tumors, foreign body or mucus impaction Leading to infection an bronchiectasis localized[] If the obstruction is persistent and infection continues to be present, fibrosis and/or bronchiectasis may develop.[] It is commonly caused by the mucous plugs accompanying asthma , chronic bronchitis , bronchiectasis, postoperative states, and foreign body aspiration.[]

  • Mediastinal Emphysema

    […] in Recreational Scuba Divers Fitness Issues for Divers With Musculoskeletal Problems - Part I Gastrointestinal Bariatric Surgery and Diving Gastrointestinal Issues General[] […] pneumonia, bronchiectasis, pleurisy, emphysema, pneumothorax, phthisis and other lung diseases from the sounds he heard with his invention.[] Underlying pulmonary diseases associated with the development of spontaneous pneumomediastinum include asthma, emphysema, interstitial lung disease, and bronchiectasis.[]

  • Alveolar Rupture

    Gradual occlusion of a bronchus leads to lipid pneumonia, chronic organizing pneumonia, and bronchiectasis, rather than simple collapse.[] DIVING EXPLAINED: Questions and Answers on Physiology and Medical Aspects of Scuba Diving: Lawrence Martin, M.D.[] Underlying pulmonary diseases associated with the development of spontaneous pneumomediastinum include asthma, emphysema, interstitial lung disease, and bronchiectasis.[]

  • Pulmonary Bullous Emphysema

    Asymptomatic bullae are treated conservatively by reassurance, advise to stop smoking, avoid strenuous activities like scuba diving that can promote the rupture of the bullae[] Chest radiology showed bilateral bullae predominantly of both upper and the left lower lobes and mild bronchiectasis.[] Post-infectious bronchiectasis may be localized or diffuse depending on location and extent of primary disease. D.[]

  • Pulmonary Edema

    Medical conditions Chronic lung diseases such as COPD, bronchiectasis, or cystic fibrosis that make the lungs more vulnerable.[] Abstract Swimming-induced pulmonary edema (SIPE) occurs during swimming and scuba diving, usually in cold water, in susceptible healthy individuals, especially military recruits[] IPE occurs typically during SCUBA diving, snorkeling, and swimming.[]

  • Pleural Adhesions

    Definitive pathological examination revealed saccular-type bronchiectasis.[] It is a particular threat if it occurs when flying or scuba diving. Description of procedure: The procedure is performed under general anaesthetic.[] Carina the area where the left and right bronchi divide Oxygen deficiency both clubbing and cyanosis orthopenea a patient breathes more easily when standing coryza cold bronchiectasis[]
