468 Possible Causes for Cyanosis, Hypercapnia

  • Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome

    The symptoms usually appear shortly after birth and may include tachypnea, tachycardia, chest wall retractions (recession), expiratory grunting, nasal flaring and cyanosis[] PEEP will be titrated individually against peripheral oxygen saturation, targeting lower tidal volumes by a permissive approach to hypercapnia.[] The person has shortness of breath, usually with rapid, shallow breathing, the skin may become mottled or blue (cyanosis), and other organs such as the heart and brain may[]

  • Pulmonary Edema

    The accumulation of fluids in the lungs fill in the air sacs and manifest externally dyspnea, chest pain, and cyanosis.[] […] pre-existing lung disease (but even in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), give high oxygen flow initially but monitor with blood gases to ensure hypercapnia[] In severe degrees of edema the breathing is that of suffocation, there is cyanosis, and there exudes or is expectorated from the mouth a thin serous frothy fluid often tinged[]

  • Asphyxia

    […] heart distended with blood (iii) increased hypostatic blood - The blood will contain increased levels of reduced haemoglobin and this accounts for bluish discoloration (cyanosis[] Twenty-four newborn pigs in two intervention groups were exposed to 8% oxygen and hypercapnia, until base excess fell to -20 mmol/l or the mean arterial blood pressure declined[] Cyanosis Post mortem fluidity of blood Cardiac dilatation Asphyxia is classified into different types Mechanical asphyxia. Chemical Asphyxia. Environmental asphyxia.[]

  • Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease

    The is caused by the lack of oxygen in the bloodstream, a condition known as cyanosis .[] Before mechanical ventilation, coma could be confirmed to be due to CO2 narcosis caused by exorbitant arterial hypercapnia (PCO2, 193 mm Hg).[] […] wheezing, abnormal lung sounds, prolonged expiration, elevated jugular venous pulse, and cyanosis.[]

  • Acute Respiratory Failure

    This is called cyanosis and is due to very low oxygen content of the blood.[] Results from acute or chronic impairment of gas exchange between the lungs and the blood causing hypoxia with or without hypercapnia.[] Optimizing oxygenation is important, but whether permissive hypercapnia is tolerated during pregnancy remains unclear.[]

  • Neonatal Respiratory Distress Syndrome

    Central (umbilical) or peripheral arterial blood should be analyzed and may show hypoxemia, hypercapnia and respiratory (caused by alveolar atelectasis) and metabolic (due[] Later signs of the infant's deteriorating condition include a change in the respiratory rate and apnea and the presence of cyanosis, especially around the oral area.[] […] newborns, the reduced distensibility of these small lungs, the increased respiratory effort and the insufficient alveolar oxygenation lead to hypoxia (oxygen decrease), and hypercapnia[]

  • Ayerza Syndrome

    A·yer·za syn·drome ( ah-yār'shah ), sclerosis of the pulmonary arteries in chronic cor pulmonale; associated with severe cyanosis, it is a condition resembling polycythemia[] Blood tests reveal a hyperglobulia and a polyglobulia, an anoxemia and often a hypercapnia (see).[] Medical Term: Pronunciation: ah-yār′shah Definition: sclerosis of the pulmonary arteries in chronic cor pulmonale; associated with severe cyanosis, it is a condition resembling[]

  • Smoke Inhalation Injury

    Note whether there is cyanosis. Note whether the chest wall moves normally and symmetrically.[] Severe hypercapnia tended to be more frequent during HFOV among patients with smoke inhalation.[] General Signs of Inhalational Injury Burns of the neck and face Singed nasal hair Soot-laden oral and nasal secretions Cough, hoarseness, dysphonia, and stridor Tachypnea, cyanosis[]

  • Extrapulmonary Alveolar Hypoventilation

    […] residuals, decreased O2 to the stomach, decreased bowel sounds, N&V, and abdominal distention Clinical Manifestations of ARF: Integument initially, won't see anything - cyanosis[] hypercapnia.[] cyanosis).[]

  • Cor Pulmonale

    A 12-year-old boy presented acutely after an episode of syncope with perioral cyanosis.[] There was no significant difference in hypercapnia between groups.[] A 57-year-old man with deep vein thrombosis in his left calf developed acute progressive dyspnea with hypoxemia, cyanosis and the clinical picture of acute cor pulmonale,[]
