75 Possible Causes for Bronchiectasis, Scuba Diving

  • Sinusitis

    Rhinosinusitis and bronchiectasis[bronchiectasis.com.au] Other risk factors include exposure to cigarette smoke, nasal polyps (POL-ips), and changes in pressure (such as during flying or scuba diving).[aafp.org] 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?[news-medical.net]

  • 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[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The pressure in the middle ear rises when the airplane you are travelling on descends or when you ascend while scuba diving.[medbroadcast.com]

  • Patulous Eustachian Tube

    […] of the common cold containing unchelated ionic zinc compounds Barach et al. 1945 Inhalation of penicillin aerosol in patients with bronchial asthma, chronic bronchitis, bronchiectasis[google.sr] ., scuba diving or air travel) or acute upper airway inflammation (e.g., allergic or infectious rhinosinusitis, acute otitis media [OM]) Chronic ETD may lead to a retracted[unboundmedicine.com] diving) in the setting of acute allergy exacerbation or URI.[unboundmedicine.com]

  • Relapsing Polychondritis

    […] cartilage calcification sub-glottic stenosis dynamic imaging may demonstrate airway collapse best seen at end expiratory phase ( dynamic tracheal collapse ) lobar air trapping bronchiectasis[radiopaedia.org] I would have swum in the ocean, and even scuba dived from right off the beach. I would have let my slender body take in the sun without a thought about SPF factors.[rarediseaseday.org] […] polychondritis include subglottic stenosis, tracheobronchial luminal narrowing ( 3 ), densely calcified and thickened tracheal cartilage ( 2 ), peripheral bronchial narrowing and bronchiectasis[ajnr.org]

  • Pneumoperitoneum

    […] of disease, or produced artificially in the abdomen to achieve exposure during laparoscopy and laporoscopic surgery for treatment of pulmonary or intestinal tuberculosis, bronchiectasis[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com] […] causes may result in non-surgical pneumoperitoneum, such as vaginal douching, pelvic inflammatory diseases, gynaecological examination procedures, (28) jacuzzi jet, (36) scuba-diving[signavitae.com] diving, Jacuzzi use other and idiopathic PEEP, positive end-expiratory pressure; PEG, percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy.[signavitae.com]

  • Vertebral Osteomyelitis

    We present the first reported case of Aspergillus vertebral osteomyelitis and epidural abscess in Singapore in a 50-year-old man with post-tuberculous bronchiectasis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] diving coagulopathy and haematological disorders (e.g. sickle cell disease ) spinal arteriovenous malformations systemic hypotension epidural anesthesia radiation-induced[radiopaedia.org] […] directly supplying the cord trauma, e.g. stabbing other rarer reported causes 4 cardiac embolism fibrocartilaginous embolism Caisson disease : decompression sickness from SCUBA[radiopaedia.org]

  • Bleomycin

    […] patients, 14 had symptoms of nonproductive cough, dyspnea and showed HRCT findings of ground glass opacities, diffuse alveolar damage, extensive reticular markings, traction bronchiectasis[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Though there are theoretical risks to scuba diving after undergoing chemotherapy with bleomycin, this case report demonstrates that it may be done without obvious injury if[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Scuba diving is a strenuous activity.[alertdiver.eu]

  • Chronic Sinusitis

    Yellow nail syndrome is usually described as the combination of yellow nails, lymphoedema and often respiratory manifestations such as chronic sinusitis, bronchiectasis and[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Sinus barotrauma from scuba diving is relatively common, usually self-limiting, and often the result of transient nasal pathology.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] (This is damage to your sinuses resulting from pressure differences when diving.)[patient.info]

  • 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[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Putatively recurrence-prone lifestyle activities (smoking status, flying habits, and scuba diving) and actual occurrence of recurrences were correlated.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] 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[mdedge.com]

  • Ear Discharge
