162 Possible Causes for Decreased Forced Vital Capacity

  • Asthma

    During an asthma attack, all indices of expiratory flow, including FEV 1, FEV 1 /FVC (forced vital capacity), PEF, maximal expiratory flows at 75%, 50%, and 25% of vital capacity[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] metabolism of the ventilatory muscles and overproduction of lactic acid; the eventually coexisting profound tissue hypoxia; the presence of intracellular alkalosis; and the decreased[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease

  • Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis

  • Aspiration Pneumonia

    Aspiration pneumonia is a type of lung infection that is due to a relatively large amount of material from the stomach or mouth entering the lungs. Signs and symptoms often include fever and cough of relatively rapid onset. Complications may include lung abscess. Some include chemical pneumonitis as a subtype, which[…][en.wikipedia.org]

Bearn Butterworth-Heinemann, 11.09.2013 - 160 Seiten Progress in Medical Genetics: Volume 5 covers the improvements in nutrition and control of childhood disease. This book is divided into five chapters that evaluate the characteristics of thalassemias, an inherited defect in[…][books.google.de]

  • Bronchitis

    Pulmonary function studies show increased residual volume and decreases in forced vital capacity and forced expiratory volume.[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com] PaO 2 is decreased and PaCO 2 increased on arterial blood gas results. Sputum cultures show presence of multiple microorganisms and neutrophils.[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com]

  • Pregnancy

    Expiratory reserve volume (ERV) decreases 15%. Residual volume decreases. Vital capacity does not change. Inspiratory capacity increases 5%.[emedicine.medscape.com] Functional reserve capacity decreases 18%. Minute volume increases 40%. Forced expiratory volume (FEV1) does not change. PaO2 levels increase, from 100 to 110 mmHg.[emedicine.medscape.com]

  • Morbid Obesity

    Inspiratory and expiratory reserve volumes are decreased, which leads to a lower functional residual capacity and vital capacity.[openanesthesia.org] Also, excessive adipose tissue over the chest decreases the chest wall compliance, and increased abdominal mass forces the diaphragm upwards and reduces lung volumes.[openanesthesia.org]

  • Staphylococcus Aureus

    […] expiratory volume/forced vital capacity ratio.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Patients with severe ECRS displayed a significant decrease in IL-10 production compared with those with non-ECRS.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The degree of IL-10 production was negatively correlated with the degree of eosinophilia both in tissues and peripheral blood whereas positively correlated with the 1-s forced[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
