60 Possible Causes for Cystic Fibrosis, Hyperresonance, Spontaneous Pneumothorax

  • Pneumothorax

    INTRODUCTION - More and more children affected by cystic fibrosis reach adulthood.[] To learn more about how we use cookies, please see our cookies policy Close Intended for healthcare professionals Research Spontaneous pneumothorax Spontaneous pneumothorax[] Patients with pneumothorax present with sudden-onset dyspnea, ipsilateral chest pain, diminished breath sounds, and hyperresonant percussion on the affected side.[]

  • Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease

    […] caused by genetic mutations of the cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR) gene.[] We report the management of a patient with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease with a history of recurrent spontaneous pneumothorax undergoing nephrectomy under regional[] […] 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[]

  • Spontaneous Pneumothorax

    Pulmonary Langerhans cell histiocytosis Cystic fibrosis Pneumocystis jirovecii pneumonia Alpha-1 antitrypsin deficiency Tuberous sclerosis complex with lymphangioleiomyomatosis[] It may occur as a primary spontaneous pneumothorax (PSP) or secondary spontaneous pneumothorax (SSP) due to different etiologies.[] There will be decreased breath sounds on the affected side and hyperresonance to percussion. What is the most likely cause for a spontaneous pneumothorax?[]

  • Traumatic Pneumothorax

    Patients with cystic fibrosis have an especially high rate of recurrence.[] Pneumothorax can be categorized into spontaneous or traumatic. Spontaneous pneumothorax can be further divided into primary and secondary type.[] Breath sounds may be diminished and the affected hemithorax hyperresonant to percussion—mainly with larger pneumothoraces.[]

  • 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".[] pneumothorax?[] fibrosis transmembrane receptor is the gene for cystic fibrosis.[]

  • Iatrogenic Pneumothorax

    Cystic fibrosis : the development of a pneumothorax in a patient with cystic fibrosis requires early and aggressive treatment with early surgical referral.[] The most common risk factor for spontaneous pneumothorax is smoking, although chronic lung disease and infections are predisposing factors.[] […] pain that may radiate to neck, back, and shoulder hemodynamic instability tachycardia tachypnea dyspnea hypoxemia ipsilateral decreased or absent breath sounds ipsilateral hyperresonance[]

  • Catamenial Pneumothorax

    fibrosis, Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease is the most common predisposing disorder of secondary spontaneous pneumothorax (b) Pulmonary infections: lung abscess, necrotizing[] Information on spontaneous pneumothorax (lung collapse), bleb disease, surgical procedures; Video Assisted Thoracic Surgery (VATS), thoracotomy, thoracostomy, chemical and[] Physical examination was remarkable for decreased breath sounds and hyperresonance over the right hemithorax. Her labs were unremarkable.[]

  • Cystic Fibrosis

    Cystic fibrosis is usually recognized in infancy or early childhood.[] Spontaneous pneumothorax is the presence of air in the pleural space and can be subdivided into first episode and recurrent.[] Respiratory distress with retractions Wheeze or crackles Cough (dry or productive of mucoid or purulent sputum) Increased anteroposterior diameter of chest Clubbing Cyanosis Hyperresonant[]

  • Familial Spontaneous Pneumothorax

    Fibrosis Carrier Testing in East Anglia Help improve the reporting of genetic test results What is a genome?[] Review of the literature reveals 61 reports of familial spontaneous pneumothorax in 22 families. The ratio of male to female cases is approximately 1.8.[] If the sounds are hyperresonant, what is the most likely cause?[]

  • Artificial Pneumothorax

    Fibrosis 193 Chapter 11 Asthma 199 Chapter 12 Central Airway Obstruction and Bronchial Carcinoma 221 Chapter 13 Respiratory Infections and Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome[] pneumothorax sions spontaneous pneumo spontaneous pneumothorax surgical tachycardia Tense Pneumothorax thoracoscopy thoracotomy thorax tion Treatment is directed tuberculous[] Emphysema (see emphysema entry), cystic fibrosis (see cystic fibrosis entry), and tuberculosis (see tuberculosis entry) are examples of such lung disorders.[]
