Show results in: Deutsch

  • Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease

    MEASUREMENT OF DYSPNEA IN COPD Section: The two purposes of measuring dyspnea are: to differentiate between patients who have less dyspnea and those who have more dyspnea[dx.doi.org] Edema in cor pulmonale. Lancet 1975 ; ii: 1289 – 1290. Google Scholar 27 Richens JM Howard P. Oedema in cor pulmonale. Clin Sci 1982 ; 62: 255 – 259.[dx.doi.org] To measure the severity of dyspnea the principles of psychophysics (stimulus -- response relationship) can be applied.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • 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] Arterial oxygen tension is lower and chronic hypoxemia may lead to pulmonary hypertension and cor pulmonale.[openanesthesia.org] Early in pregnancy, the alveolar ventilation is increased and pregnant women have a sense of dyspnea.[bariatrictimes.com]

  • Pulmonary Infarction

    […] may lead to catastrophic, massive pulmonary embolism and death, or to recurrent embolism with pulmonary hypertension and chronic cor pulmonale, resulting in incapacitating dyspnea[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Hemoptysis, chest pain and dyspnea were present. Chest film simulated a thin wall lung abscess.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] A 6-year-old boy was admitted with anasarca due to relapse of nephrotic syndrome, non-productive cough, and dyspnea on exertion.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Recurrent Pulmonary Embolism

    A 45-year-old woman with a history of recurrent pulmonary embolism was admitted to the emergency clinic with dyspnea, wheezing and tachypnea.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Greater attention is presently being directed toward the frequent occurrence of chronic embolization and its sequelae, chronic hypertension and cor pulmonale. 1 2 3 4 5 6[nejm.org] Dyspnea was the common symptom and signs of pulmonary hypertension were usual.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Pulmonary Fibrosis

    BACKGROUND: Dyspnea is the hallmark symptom of pulmonary fibrosis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Cor pulmonale develops in association with end-stage disease and classic signs of right heart failure may be present.[orpha.net] In severe disease, there may be cyanosis eventually leading to respiratory failure, pulmonary hypertension and cor pulmonale.[symptoma.com]

  • Cor Pulmonale

    We report the case of a 40-year-old woman who died after 3 days of progressive dyspnea, cough, and pulmonary hypertension.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] lung diseases. [7] Cor Pulmonale Presentation The clinical manifestations of cor pulmonale may be nonspecific.[emedicine.medscape.com] Abstract A 25-year-old woman with acute dyspnea was found to have nodular shadows in a chest X-ray film.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Pulmonary Hypertension

    He presented with progressive severe dyspnea on exertion and lower extremity edema.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] cor pulmonale I26.90 Septic pulmonary embolism without acute cor pulmonale I26.92 Saddle embolus of pulmonary artery without acute cor pulmonale I26.99 Other pulmonary embolism[icd10data.com] A 58-year-old woman was referred to our hospital with a chief complaint of exertional dyspnea.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Pulmonary Tumor Embolism

    In early January 2010, he suffered from dyspnea on exertion gradually, although cancer progression was not proven by computed tomography (CT) scan.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The involvement of pulmonary alveolar capillaries causing sudden cor pulmonale is very rare.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Herein we describe two patients with unsuspected microscopic pulmonary tumor embolism that eventuated in subacute cor pulmonale and death.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Sarcoidosis

    Respiratory muscle weakness occurs in sarcoidosis and is related to decreased exercise capacity, greater fatigue, dyspnea, and lower quality of life in sarcoidosis patients[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Severe involvement of the lung by sarcoidosis can eventually strain the right side of the heart, causing right-sided heart failure (cor pulmonale—see see Cor Pulmonale: A[web.archive.org] Severe involvement of the lung by sarcoidosis can eventually strain the right side of the heart, causing right-sided heart failure ( cor pulmonale ).[merckmanuals.com]

  • Pulmonary Disorder

    Wheezing can be a physical finding or a symptom and is usually associated with dyspnea.[msdmanuals.com] […] with cor pulmonale survive longer than five years.[sleepfoundation.org] When the FEV1 falls below about 1 L, patients develop dyspnea during activities of daily living (although dyspnea is more closely related to the degree of dynamic hyperinflation[msdmanuals.com]
