305 Possible Causes for Cor Pulmonale, Respiratory Acidosis

  • Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease

    Eventually, hypercapnia and respiratory acidosis develop, leading to pulmonary artery vasoconstriction and cor pulmonale.[] 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.[] Oxygen In a cluster randomised, controlled parallel group trial, in 405 patients, titrated oxygen significantly reduced mortality, hypercapnia and respiratory acidosis.[]

  • Obstructive Sleep Apnea

    acidosis ; renal compensation ; increased HCO 3 retention and decreased chloride reabsorption References: [6] [1] [7] Clinical features Restless sleep with waking, gasping[] pulmonale (failure of the right side of the heart).[] View/Print Table TABLE 1 Diagnosis of Obstructive Sleep Apnea in Children Symptoms Cessation of breathing Cor pulmonale Cyanosis Enuresis Excessive daytime somnolence Gasping[]

  • Sleep Apnea

    Slight respiratory acidosis was observed in 50% of the patients.[] Vol 8, No 3 (Autumn 2009) Introduction Cor pulmonale has a well-described association with chronic respiratory diseases such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD[] The increased CO2 causes a drop in pH, leading to a state of respiratory acidosis.[]

  • Hypercapnia

    respiratory acidosis: Change in pH 0.03 X ((40 Pa CO 2 )/10) Respiratory acidosis does not have a great effect on electrolyte levels.[] A 38-year-old patient with effort dyspnea, somnolence, cianosis and cor pulmonale is presented.[] pulmonale was shorter compared to that of patients with normocapnia with Cor pulmonale (4.8 vs 6.0 years).[]

  • Kyphoscoliosis

    […] alkalosis) ABG in Severe Kyphoscoliosis chronic ventilatory failure with hypoxemia (compensated respiratory acidosis) acute on chronic situations seen a lot in patients Hemodynamic[] We present the case of a 59-year-old man with congenital kyphoscoliosis who developed cor pulmonale for the first time following intercontinental air travel.[] V/Q mismatch leads to significant hypoxia, and can progress to symptoms of Cor pulmonale. CXR shows significant distortion of spine and thorax.[]

  • Pulmonary Fibrosis

    Cor pulmonale develops in association with end-stage disease and classic signs of right heart failure may be present.[] In severe disease, there may be cyanosis eventually leading to respiratory failure, pulmonary hypertension and cor pulmonale.[] Right-sided heart failure (cor pulmonale).[]

  • Cystic Fibrosis

    There may be hypoxemia and in advanced stages, respiratory acidosis. Imaging Features of cystic fibrosis can be identified on imaging.[] pulmonale) Call your provider if an infant or child has symptoms of CF, and experiences: Fever, increased coughing, changes in sputum or blood in sputum, loss of appetite[] The child subsequently developed lactic acidosis and secondary respiratory compensation adding to her baseline respiratory distress.[]

  • Hypoventilation

    Respiratory acidosis may have either a severe acute or chronic asymptomatic course.[] A physical exam may reveal: Bluish color in the lips, fingers, toes, or skin ( cyanosis ) Reddish skin Signs of right-sided heart failure ( cor pulmonale ), such as swollen[] They also may have peripheral edema secondary to pulmonary hypertension with cor pulmonale.[]

  • Central Sleep Apnea

    acidosis.[] This can lead to cor pulmonale (right-sided heart failure). Call your provider if you have symptoms of this disorder.[] Pulmonale), and hypoventilation (see Underventilation ).[]

  • Pneumoconiosis

    Correction of the underlying respiratory acidosis was not sufficient to control the rapid ventricular response.[] A heart deficiency called cor pulmonale may develop in severe cases. Sufferers are particularly vulnerable to infectious lung diseases such as tuberculosis.[] Intensely blackened scars 2 cm, multiple and containing dense collagen and pigment Center of lesion may be necrotic due to ischemia Associated with pulmonary hypertension and cor[]
