17 Possible Causes for Bronchospasm and Wheezing, Cystic Fibrosis, Hyperresonance

  • Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease

    […] caused by genetic mutations of the cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR) gene.[] These may be caused by bronchospasm, a sudden contraction of the airways that makes it difficult to breathe and that may trigger a torrent of wheezing or coughing.[] […] 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".[] […] asth·ma \ ˈaz-mə, British ˈas- \ : a chronic lung disorder that is marked by recurring episodes of airway obstruction (as from bronchospasm) manifested by labored breathing[] fibrosis transmembrane receptor is the gene for cystic fibrosis.[]

  • Hyperactive Airway Disease

    fibrosis (see this term), the two underlying diseases of most of the ABPA patients (about 2% of patients with asthma and 1 to 15% of patients with cystic fibrosis develop[] Wheezing requires movement of gas through narrowed airways and so in severe bronchospasm wheeze is absent. Similarly, breath sounds may be reduced or absent.[] Hyperresonance of the lungs – Hyperresonance may indicate lung consolidation because of accumulation of pulmonary secretions.[]

  • Cystic Fibrosis

    Cystic fibrosis is usually recognized in infancy or early childhood.[] Respiratory distress with retractions Wheeze or crackles Cough (dry or productive of mucoid or purulent sputum) Increased anteroposterior diameter of chest Clubbing Cyanosis Hyperresonant[] […] respiratory distress with retractions, wheeze or crackles, cough (dry or productive of mucoid or purulent sputum), increased anteroposterior chest diameter, clubbing, cyanosis, hyperresonant[]

  • 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[] 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[] Antifungal therapy for ABPA in cystic fibrosis needs to be evaluated.[]

  • 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[] […] and wheezing Obstructive bronchitis: often have associated emphysema, small airway disease Causes: 4 - 10 more common in smokers, chronic irritation and infections may contribute[] 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[]

  • Bronchiolitis obliterans with Obstructive Pulmonary Disease

( 27684511 ) Harris W.T....Clancy[] […] and wheezing Obstructive bronchitis: often have associated emphysema, small airway disease Causes: 4 - 10 more common in smokers, chronic irritation and infections may contribute[] References: [5] [1] [2] [13] [14] [10] [15] [16] Diagnostics Physical examination Percussion Hyperresonant lungs Reduced diaphragmatic excursion Relative cardiac dullness[]

  • Bronchial Disease

    Cystic fibrosis (CF) is a lethal autosomal, recessive inherited disease that commonly affects Caucasians.[] Bronchospasm Inflamed airways and bronchoconstriction in asthma. Airways narrowed as a result of the inflammatory response cause wheezing.[] Thoracic examination reveals the following: Hyperinflation (barrel chest) Wheezing – Frequently heard on forced and unforced expiration Diffusely decreased breath sounds Hyperresonance[]

  • Pulmonary Emphysema

    Alpha-1-antitrypsin deficiency (AAT) is one of the three most common lethal genetic diseases in the caucasian population (together with cystic fibrosis and Down syndrome).[] The bronchospasm (wheezing) occurs frequently.[] Similarly, hyperresonant notes are perceived via percussion, and auscultation reveals diminished or distant breath sounds.[]

  • Psychogenic Hyperventilation

    fibrosis.[] Wheezing may be heard because of bronchospasm from hypocarbia. Tremor, mydriasis, pallor, tachycardia, and other manifestations of anxiety can occur.[] . #7 If we review only barrel shaped chest, hyperresonant percussion sound, CXR: hyperinflated lung. Patient is ex-smoker.[]
