8,667 Possible Causes for Collapse

  • Acute Gastroenteritis

    […] rapid intravenous rehydration, using fluid volumes of 70-100mls/kg over 3-6 h, with some of the initial volume given rapidly as initial fluid boluses to treat hypovolaemic shock[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] . – Severely dehydrated or shocked usually need intravenous fluids and hospital admission – Drugs are usually unnecessary and may do harm SYMPTOMS Most often appear within[medicardphils.com] (we American’s are generally lazy) CON: Can’t be used in the setting of an ileus CON: CANNOT rapidly rehydrate someone – not useful in Sever Dehydration (AKA compensated SHOCK[pedemmorsels.com]

  • Atelectasis

    Symptoms of a collapsed lung vary.[cedars-sinai.edu] Abstract Atelectasis is a condition characterized by lung collapse, which can be subtotal (25–50% collapse) or total (100% collapse).[link.springer.com] Pressure collapse of lung due to OB anesthesia in pregnancy Pressure collapse of lung due to obstetric anesthesia in pregnancy Clinical Information (at-uh-lek-tuh-sis) failure[icd9data.com]

  • Pelvic Inflammatory Disease

    CASE: A 19-year-old girl with type 1 diabetes mellitus developed sudden-onset mental status change and shock after resolution of diabetic ketoacidosis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] After further evaluation, our patient was found to be suffering from toxic shock syndrome, which in many ways may resemble PID.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] If diagnosis and treatment are not performed in a timely manner, PID may cause sepsis, septic shock, and even death.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Iron Deficiency Anemia

    The acute and potentially catastrophic problems of hypoxia and shock that can occur from significant hemorrhage or severe iron deficiency are discussed elsewhere; however,[emedicine.medscape.com]

  • Sepsis

    Why didn’t I protect the children from witnessing him collapse and CPR?”[thesun.co.uk] A day or so later, I developed pneumonia and my lung collapsed.[dailymail.co.uk] […] right ventricular failure Sepsis-related gastritis Septic shock Septic shock acute organ dysfunction Septic shock acute organ dysfunction, anaerobic Septic shock acute organ[icd9data.com]

  • Acidosis

    We present the case of a patient with new-onset diabetes, severe acidosis, hypothermia, and shock who presented to a Role 1 Battalion Aid Station (BAS) in Afghanistan.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Severe metabolic acidosis can lead to shock or death. In some situations, metabolic acidosis can be a mild, ongoing (chronic) condition.[medlineplus.gov] It can be caused by: Alcohol Cancer Exercising intensely Liver failure Medicines, such as salicylates Prolonged lack of oxygen from shock, heart failure, or severe anemia[nlm.nih.gov]

  • Pneumothorax

    Possible Complications Complications may include any of the following: Another collapsed lung in the future Shock , if there are serious injuries or infection, severe inflammation[mountsinai.org] Complications may include any of the following: Another collapsed lung in the future Shock , if there are serious injuries or infection, severe inflammation, or fluid in the[nlm.nih.gov] In more severe cases, symptoms will develop rapidly and may lead to shock .[northshore.org]

  • Sleep Apnea

    As predicted by the Starling resistor model, the collapsible segment of the upper airway in children displayed less negative (higher and, therefore, more collapsible) pressures[emedicine.com] […] is the major factor responsible for occlusion of the collapsible segment.[emedicine.com] Pressures at which the airway collapses have been termed critical closing pressures, or P crit.[emedicine.com]

  • Adrenal Insufficiency

    RATIONALE: Late-onset transient adrenal insufficiency with circulatory collapse is a rare condition that occurs in preterm infants.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] BACKGROUND: Primary adrenal insufficiency is relatively rare in children and, if unrecognized, may present with cardiovascular collapse, making it a potentially life-threatening[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Symptoms Adrenal insufficiency can present either as an acute crisis with vascular collapse or as a chronic insufficiency, which has much more obscure symptomology.[endocrinologyadvisor.com]

  • Vertebral Compression Fracture

    The degree of collapse progression was compared between two groups.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Close follow-up is warrant to monitor the occurrence of late collapse with neurological complications. LEVEL OF EVIDENCE: N/A.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Just one of five cases experienced late vertebral collapse 3 months after the operation.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
