575 Possible Causes for Bronchospasm and Wheezing, PaO2 Decreased, Small Testicular Volume

  • Asthma

    […] 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[merriam-webster.com] Despite the patient presenting asthma characteristics (expiratory wheezing, dry cough, partial reversibility at post bronchodilator test) and asthma medication alleviating[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] These three factors - bronchospasm, inflammation, and mucus production - cause symptoms such as difficulty breathing, wheezing, and coughing. Who is affected by asthma?[my.clevelandclinic.org]

  • Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease

    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.[health.harvard.edu] Bronchospasm is also characteristic of asthma, which is a separate illness from COPD.[health.harvard.edu] Another difference is that asthma symptoms are often triggered by bronchospasm—the spasmodic contraction of the airways that chokes off airflow.[health.harvard.edu]

  • Respiratory Syncytial Virus Infection

    BACKGROUND: To evaluate the role of serum cytokines in the pathogenesis of respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) infection in infants with low birth weight (LBW). METHODS: A prospective observational study was performed, and hospitalized children with lower respiratory tract infection (LRTI) were recruited. Three[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Pneumococcal Pneumonia

    BACKGROUND: The serotype-specific effectiveness of 23-valent pneumococcal polysaccharide vaccine (PPV23) against pneumococcal pneumonia has not been established in people aged 65 years or older. We assessed the effectiveness of PPV23 in this population. METHODS: For this multicentre, prospective study, we[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
