1,402 Possible Causes for Coma, Pulmonary Edema

  • Congestive Heart Failure

    16.2 80 Multiple sclerosis 21,708 2,529 11.6 82 Paralysis 7,394 987 13.3 83 Epilepsy, convulsions 252,200 31,965 12.7 84 Headache, including migraine 70,782 7,373 10.4 85 Coma[web.archive.org] After 2 months of CHM treatment, the follow-up chest X-ray showed great improvements in pulmonary edema and cardiomegaly.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] This causes systemic or pulmonary edema or both.[health.howstuffworks.com]

  • Opiate Overdose

    These findings were similar to those seen with other drug overdoses if combined with strenuous muscular effort or hypoxic coma.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Note : Pulmonary edema may occur outside of the use of naloxone due to opioid induced histamine release, which has also been linked to changes in pulmonary capillary permeability[ebmconsult.com] Abstract Heroin and other opiates are central nervous system depressants; in an opiate overdose, respiration slows, potentially resulting in hypoxia, coma, or death.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Overdose

    Levetiracetam is an anti-epileptic drug commonly used in intensive care when seizure is suspected as a possible cause of coma.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] While pulmonary edema as a consequence of heroin overdose is well-documented and usually first suspected when consolidations are present on a chest radiograph in a patient[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] A chest X-ray revealed diffuse pulmonary edema; intravenous diuresis as well as continuous renal replacement therapy was initiated.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Heroin Dependence

    Signs of heroin overdose include: Shallow breathing Pinpoint pupils Convulsions Coma Heroin addiction treatment Individuals who are dependent on heroin face unique challenges[hazeldenbettyford.org] edema, due to direct heroin toxicity to capillaries or myocardium, hypoxic endothelial damage, CHF, central vasomotor effect– protein in edema Skin Track marks, circular[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com] Fifteen minutes after inhaling, he passed out, then dropped into a deep coma which lasted more than two months.[drugfreeworld.org]

  • Salicylate Poisoning

    […] poisoning, especially chronic (repeated administration of therapeutic or excessive doses for longer than 12 h), can include metabolic acidosis, hypoglycaemia, lethargy, and coma[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Pulmonary edema by itself, needless to say, would be an indication for hemodialysis.[ukidney.com] Delayed presentation, coma, hyperpyrexia, pulmonary oedema and acidaemia were more common in the fatal cases.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Tricyclic Antidepressant Overdose

    Coma grade was the best predictor of outcome.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] To report a case of pulmonary edema following a tricyclic antidepressant (TCA) overdose in an adolescent.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Clinical presentation of overdose from the tricyclic agents includes cardiac arrhythmias, hypotension, seizures, coma and anticholinergic signs such as hyperthermia, flushing[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Accidental Hypothermia

    When the patient was seen in hospital, bradycardia (30.min-1), bradypnoea (5. min-1), scarcely reacting pupils, and Glasgow Coma Scale 3 were noted.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Pulmonary edema. 2. C. Hypothermia. The ECG demonstrates the presence of J waves or Osborn waves which are seen in hypothermia.[foamcast.org] On day three, he woke up from coma and was discharged from the intensive care unit after one week.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Anaphylaxis

    Fluid can leak into the alveoli (air sacs) of the lungs, causing pulmonary edema.[web.archive.org] On general physical examination, the common signs include arrhythmia, pulmonary edema, hives, low blood pressure, mental confusion, rapid pulse, swelling of the eyes and face[symptoma.com] edema) can mimic some of the symptoms of anaphylaxis.[doi.org]

  • Asphyxia

    Severity of the disease leads to the complications like irreversible coma and brain death.[symptoma.com] Lung: Complications include pulmonary edema and acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS).[pedclerk.bsd.uchicago.edu] There are three modes in which death may occur: Syncope; asphyxia; coma. The first sensation to return to me was a sort of repetition of the asphyxia.[thesaurus.com]

  • High Altitude Pulmonary Edema

    It is postulated that because of his blunted ventilaory drives, the patient progessed to coma on exposure to low ambient oxygen tensions (i.e., high altitude) without ever[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] into underlying mechanisms of pulmonary edema.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Soon after evacuation, he showed severe hypoxemia and deep coma with decerebrate rigidity; electroencephalogram showed diffuse alpha waves, indicating "alpha wave coma."[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
