28 Possible Causes for Cystic Fibrosis, Hyperresonance, Lung Function Testing Abnormal

  • Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease

    […] caused by genetic mutations of the cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR) gene.[] […] cough or expectoration Breathing may be assisted by pursed lips and use of accessory respiratory muscles; patients may adopt the tripod sitting position The chest may be hyperresonant[] Other test abnormalities may include Increased total lung capacity Increased functional residual capacity Increased residual volume Decreased vital capacity Decreased single-breath[]

  • Asthma

    It is now well established that there is no single "gene for asthma", in the way that the cystic fibrosis transmembrane receptor is the "gene for cystic fibrosis".[] Pulmonary function tests abnormalities included: high fractional exhaled nitric oxide (FeNO), high lung clearance index (LCI), and elevated diffusing capacity of the lungs[] fibrosis transmembrane receptor is the gene for cystic fibrosis.[]

  • Hyperactive Airway Disease

    fibrosis (see this term), the two underlying diseases of most of the ABPA patients (about 2% of patients with asthma and 1 to 15% of patients with cystic fibrosis develop[] Hyperresonance of the lungs – Hyperresonance may indicate lung consolidation because of accumulation of pulmonary secretions.[] Steatorrhea and failure to thrive further suggest cystic fibrosis. With the widespread use of neonatal screening, cystic fibrosis is often discovered at birth.[]

  • Cystic Fibrosis

    Cystic fibrosis is usually recognized in infancy or early childhood.[] Respiratory distress with retractions Wheeze or crackles Cough (dry or productive of mucoid or purulent sputum) Increased anteroposterior diameter of chest Clubbing Cyanosis Hyperresonant[] Any abnormalities in these functions may indicate cystic fibrosis.[]

  • Pulmonary Bullous Emphysema

    […] jiroveci pneumonia (PCP) Honeycomb change in idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis Cystic bronchiectasis: In cystic bronchiectasis associated with cystic fibrosis, the air-filled[] Physical examination revealed cachexia, with decreased apical breath sounds and hyperresonance to percussion in both lungs.[] He was tachypneic and had no breath sounds over his right hemithorax, which was hyperresonant to percussion.[]

  • Traumatic Pneumothorax

    Patients with cystic fibrosis have an especially high rate of recurrence.[] Breath sounds may be diminished and the affected hemithorax hyperresonant to percussion—mainly with larger pneumothoraces.[] Abnormal lung function: Class 1 : FEV1/FVC Class 2:Peak flow 2.[]

  • Alpha-1 Antitrypsin Deficiency

    Abstract Cystic fibrosis is predominantly an airway disease with marked bronchiectatic changes associated with inflammation, chronic colonization, and progressive airflow[] Hyperresonant breath sounds : An increased echo quality of the breath sounds when listening with a stethoscope can indicate that there is emphysema, as there is more air and[] If you haven’t already had a lung function test or spirometry to measure your breathing ability this will likely be performed.[]

  • Pulmonary Histiocytosis X

    We also evaluate and treat interstitial lung diseases, including idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis and cystic fibrosis, lung nodules and pulmonary hypertension.[] Chest examination showed bilateral distant breath sounds but no hyperresonance.[] If doctors notice abnormal lung function, they may perform several other tests.[]

  • Chronic Bronchitis

    Author information 1 1 Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine, Department of Medicine. 2 2 Marsico Lung Institute, Cystic Fibrosis Research Center, and. 3 3 Center for Environmental[] As the disease progresses, patients often develop decreased breath sounds (likelihood ratio [LR] 10.2 for breath sound score less than or equal to 9), hyperresonance (LR 5.1[] Lung function tests known as spirometry which also look at whether the lung function improves with bronchodilator drugs.[]

  • Pulmonary Disorder

    Abstract Collectively asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disorder (COPD) and cystic fibrosis (CF) are very common, important causes of disease and ill health.[] Thoracic examination reveals the following: Hyperinflation (barrel chest) Wheezing – Frequently heard on forced and unforced expiration Diffusely decreased breath sounds Hyperresonance[] Lung function tests known as spirometry which also look at whether the lung function improves with bronchodilator drugs.[]
