378 Possible Causes for Buffalo Hump, Dyspnea, Sleep Apnea, Snoring

  • Obesity

    It is likely that obesity modifies the clinical picture of COPD because of its effects on the perception of dyspnea and exercise tolerance.[doi.org] It also causes heavy snoring. Respiratory problems associated with obesity occur when added weight of the chest wall squeezes the lungs and causes restricted breathing.[stanfordhealthcare.org] Obesity is a risk factor for dyspnea but not for airflow obstruction.

  • Morbid Obesity

    We present a 17 year-old woman, with a previous genetic diagnosis of Prader-Willi syndrome and BMI of 74 Kg/m(2), that was admitted in anasarca, with marked cyanosis, dyspnea[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The patient had a history of arterial hypertension, diabetes, gonarthrosis, and obstructive sleep apnea syndrome and no history of alcohol abuse.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] It also causes heavy snoring. Sleep apnea is also linked to high blood pressure.[hopkinsmedicine.org] apnea, nonalcoholic fatty liver disease, osteoarthritis, infertility, and mental health disorders.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Mucopolysaccharidosis

    The patient also suffered from dyspnea, NYHA II-III.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Respiratory problems, sleep apnea, and heart disease may develop in adolescence.[en.wikipedia.org] […] patient had severe infantile global neurodevelopmental delays, macrocephaly with a prominent forehead, coarse facial features with clear corneas, chronic congestion with snoring[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The airway may become narrow in some people with MPS I, causing frequent upper respiratory infections and short pauses in breathing during sleep (sleep apnea).[ghr.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Mucopolysaccharidosis 4A

    With regards to the respiratory tract, snoring, sleep apnea, recurrent upper respiratory infection, and dyspnea may occur.[symptoma.com] Because of persistent dyspnea and poor exercise tolerance (New York Heart Association class III), he was investigated for cardiac disease.[circ.ahajournals.org] Respiratory For obstructive sleep apnea, yearly history focused on sleep patterns and sounds. Evaluation by an otolaryngologist for adenotonsillectomy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] History of snoring, daytime somnolence and stridor may indicate airway obstruction [10] . History of snoring was present in our case.[ijaweb.org]

  • Sleep Apnea Syndrome

    Abstract A 66-year-old man with diabetes mellitus was hospitalized with sleeping and dyspnea.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] sleep apnea syndrome and CSA (21.7 /- 18.6 in complex sleep apnea syndrome, 32.9 /- 30.8 in CSA vs 2.14 /- 3.14 in OSAHS; p .001).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Snoring Studies have shown that up to 50% of adults snore. It is not very common in children, but it does occur.[calsleep.com] Snoring, intermittent choking, and nocturnal dyspnea reflect varying degrees of upper airway obstruction associated with Sleep Apnea Syndrome.[clinicaltrials.gov]

  • Asthma

    It is characterized by spasmodic contraction of airway smooth muscle, wheezing, and dyspnea (dyspnea, paroxysmal). Asthma is a chronic disease that affects your airways.[icd9data.com] The most frequently reported asthma comorbid conditions include rhinitis, sinusitis, gastroesophageal reflux disease, obstructive sleep apnea, hormonal disorders and psychopathologies[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Obstructive sleep apnea Obstructive sleep apnea is a frequent condition associated with obesity and has been considered to possibly influence asthma.[doi.org] A 62-year-old man with asthma presented with a 1-month history of wheezing and exertional dyspnea.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

    A 57-year-old man was admitted with dyspnea. Clinical evaluation revealed atrial fibrillation and congestive heart failure (CHF).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The central sleep apnea syndromes (CSAS) is a group of sleep-related conditions featuring inadequate or interrupted respiratory function during sleep.[symptoma.com] The patient had a body mass index of 32.4kg/m2, and complained of fatigue, shortness of breath on exertion, excessive daytime sleepiness, and snoring.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Family members may tell you that you stop breathing at night and snore excessively.[healthcentral.com]

  • Tonsillar Hypertrophy

    These infants had sleep apnea, dyspnea, poor increase of body weight or cardiac hypertrophy. This is a report on a clinical study on these infants.[ci.nii.ac.jp] Snoring/sleep apnea are usual symptoms of adenotonsillar hypertrophy, and adenotonsillectomy is usually recommended.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] tonsillar hypertrophy (n 350) wheezing did not affect snoring [odds ratio: 2.76 (1.10-6.93); P 0.031 and 1.49 (0.92-2.43); P 0.107, respectively].[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Our aim was to determine whether decisions made by pediatric subspecialists regarding management of obstructive sleep apnea in children without tonsillar hypertrophy adhered[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
