925 Possible Causes for Bronchiolitis, Small for Age, Tachycardia

  • Acute Bronchitis

    Pneumonia should be suspected in patients with tachypnea, tachycardia, dyspnea, or lung findings suggestive of pneumonia, and radiography is warranted.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] 10 and 60 yr (mean age of 40) Diffuse small centrilobular nodular opacities and hyperinflation seen on chest x-ray and high-resolution CT Mostly male nonsmokers Almost all[msdmanuals.com] CONCLUSIONS: Early-career experience/training failed to produce rational antibiotic prescribing for URTI and acute bronchitis/bronchiolitis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Asthma

    The tachycardia, hypertension, and neurological symptoms improved.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The patient was a 28-year-old self-employed businessman with a past history of asthma in childhood, which had resolved completely by the age of eight.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Asthma is a common, chronic inflammation of the airways to the lungs (i.e. bronchi and bronchioles) Inflammation leads to swelling and mucus production, resulting in reduced[ib.bioninja.com.au]

Only a small proportion of cases were fatal.[web.archive.org] PB1-F2 protein is another virulence factor that induce apoptosis of infected cells, which results in life-threatening bronchiolitis.[genome.jp]

  • Pneumonia

    A 23-month-old girl visited the emergency department with high fever, cough, first wheezing episode, chest retraction and tachycardia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Mycoplasmal pneumonia, caused by Mycoplasma pneumoniae, an extremely small organism, usually affects children and young adults; few cases beyond the age of 50 are seen.[britannica.com] Viruses can also infect the low respiratory tract, causing bronchiolitis, bronchitis and pneumonia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Cardiomyopathy

    Junctional ectopic tachycardia (JET) is a rare form of arrhythmia that is most commonly seen during infancy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] populations, especially when divided by age, and present a wide range of values. 79–81 Criteria consistent with delayed relaxation are distinctly uncommon in children. 78[revportcardiol.org] At the end of the bronchioles are tiny air sacs known as alveoli. Many tiny blood vessels run through the alveoli.[cancer.org]

  • Pulmonary Embolism

    Neurological examination returned to base line status but sinus tachycardia and low saturation value on room air were continuing.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] “I don’t sweat the small stuff anymore. I wake up every morning and realize how lucky I am to be alive,” she said.[heartinsight.heart.org] A ventilation scan evaluates ventilation, or the movement of air into and out of the bronchi and bronchioles. A perfusion scan evaluates blood flow within the lungs.[bcm.edu]

  • Atelectasis

    Hypotension, tachycardia, fever, and shock may also occur. Slowly developing atelectasis is usually asymptomatic sometimes causes minor symptoms.[respiratoryupdates.wordpress.com] In children, it is important to use age-appropriate toys without small parts. Sources “Atelectasis”. Mayo Clinic. Retrieved Dec. 10, 2015. . “Atelectasis”. Merck Manual.[innerbody.com] […] human DNase (rhDNase) is an established treatment of atelectasis in cystic fibrosis and its use is also reported in the management of asthma, respiratory syncitial virus bronchiolitis[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Heart Disease

    […] present the case of a girl without heart disease admitted at our PICU due to an influenza A acute respiratory distress syndrome, who suffered a paroxysmal supraventricular tachycardia[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Age is the most important risk factor in developing cardiovascular or heart diseases, with approximately a tripling of risk with each decade of life.[en.wikipedia.org] We present a case of a 46-year-old man with nonischemic cardiomyopathy and ventricular tachycardia who underwent an echocardiogram suggestive of cardiac Chagas disease.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Influenza Pneumonia

    With H1N1 pneumonia, clinicians should be alert for otherwise unexplained tachycardia or chest pain that may represent acute myocardial infarction or myocarditis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Influence of age on bronchial mucociliary transport. Scand J Respir Dis. 1979; 60 :307–313. [ PubMed ] [ Google Scholar ] Bender BS, Small PA Jr.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Interestingly, on follow-up biopsy specimens, each patient had histologic evidence of acute rejection and/or obliterative bronchiolitis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Croup

    Marked sternal retractions, marked tachycardia, pallor, with restlessness, lethargy, or cyanosis. Breath sounds often reduced.[starship.org.nz] Risk factors Most at risk of getting croup are children between 6 months and 3 years of age.[mayoclinic.org] Croup and acute bronchiolitis are common forms of virally induced respiratory disease in infancy and early childhood.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
