188 Possible Causes for Decreased Oxygen Saturation, Dizziness, Hypoxemia

  • Pulmonary Embolism

    The patient's dizziness improved in ED. Neurological examination returned to base line status but sinus tachycardia and low saturation value on room air were continuing.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] oxygen saturation (red blood cells that do not have oxygen molecules attached to them) Decreased blood pressure: hypotension (hypo low tension pressure) The condition progresses[medicinenet.com] Concurrent persistent hypoxemia should be a clue to the existence of an intracardiac shunt.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Pneumonia

    […] the shot was given Fever, muscle aches, and drowsiness Severe problems (rare) including allergic reactions: Difficulty breathing Wheezing Hives Pale skin Fast heartbeat Dizziness[walgreens.com] The presence of normal oxygenation (oxygen saturation 96%) decreased the likelihood of pneumonia (LR, 0.47 [95% CI, 0.32-0.67]).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Although no single finding reliably differentiates pneumonia from other causes of childhood respiratory illness, hypoxemia and increased work of breathing are more important[doi.org]

  • Pulmonary Fibrosis

    Alcohol can make the side effects from apomorphine worse. you should know that apomorphine may cause dizziness, lightheadedness, nausea, sweating, and fainting when you get[web.archive.org] […] in oxygen saturations to below 89% or the need for oxygen at rest.[patient.info] In acute conditions, oxygen is given to the patient to reduce hypoxemia and to reverse cyanosis.[symptoma.com]

  • Hypoxia

    Signs: Rapid Breathing Cyanosis Poor Coordination Lethargy/Lassitude Executing Poor Judgment Symptoms: Air Hunger Dizziness Headache Mental and Muscle Fatigue Nausea Hot and[favoriteplus.com] We present a case of a 26-year-old man who presented with dyspnoea, palpitations and decreased oxygen saturation as an initial presentation of PAVM, which was treated successively[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Hypoxia and hypoxemia may or may not occur together. Generally, the presence of hypoxemia suggests hypoxia.[doi.org]

  • Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension

    Shortness of breath, dizziness, and chest pressure are common symptoms of PAH.[sleepdrs.com] Of them, 143 (49%) had SpO2 90% at rest and during 6MWT, 89 (31%) subjects had hypoxemia during 6MWT and 60 (20%) had hypoxemia at rest.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Other symptoms that may be present include: Dizziness Fatigue Swelling around the ankles and feet Fainting Tightening feeling in the chest[aoporphan.com]

  • Chronic Thromboembolic Pulmonary Hypertension

    Heart palpitations or fluttering Dry cough Swelling of the lower extremities or stomach (edema) As the disease progresses, symptoms of light-headedness or exercise-related dizziness[upmc.com] The mean PAP, PVR and TPR levels were markedly ameliorated by BPA, with concomitant improvements in the cardiac index and mixed venous oxygen saturation ( table 2 ).[doi.org] His preoperative examination revealed severe hypoxemia (PaO2 48 mmHg, PaCO2 34 mmHg in room air), a mass in the right ventricle and severe pulmonary hypertension (pulmonary[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Shock

    Early dumping syndrome characterized by palpitation, dizziness, cold sweat, feebleness, and abdominal symptoms, occurs within 30 minutes after meals in patients who have undergone[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] in mixed venous oxygen saturation (SmvO2) as measured in the pulmonary artery via a pulmonary artery catheter.[en.wikipedia.org] PATIENT CONCERNS: A 26-year-old Chinese man presented with dizziness, pruritus, dyspnea, hypotension, and tachycardia after eating cooked salted jellyfish.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Hypoventilation

    […] symptoms of: cyanosis sleepiness shortness of breath fatigue without much effort Severe hypoxia can cause cerebral vasoconstriction , which may lead to quick episodes of dizziness[healthblurbs.com] Decreased oxygen saturation (SaO 2 ) combined with increasing carbon dioxide (CO 2 ) retention or hypercapnia are the hallmarks of hypoventilation.[gbppa.org] Twenty-three patients did not have nocturnal hypoxemia and 18 were clinically asymptomatic. In 20 patients, PaCO 2 in daytime blood samples was normal.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Pulmonary Edema

    Associated symptoms included cough, weakness, expectoration of froth, chest discomfort, orthopnea, wheezing, hemoptysis, and dizziness.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] saturations, and a sense of impending doom or drowning.[cathlabdigest.com] Failure to decompress the left heart under these circumstances can result in pulmonary edema and upper body hypoxemia, that is, myocardial and cerebral ischemia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Congestive Heart Failure

    While symptoms of heart failure vary by person, swelling of the legs, irregular heartbeats or other unexplained symptoms like shortness of breath or dizziness could be early[novanthealth.org] These SRDB cause arousals, hypoxemia-reoxygenation, hypercapnia-hypocapnia, and changes in intrathoracic pressure.[web.archive.org] […] shortness of breath (particularly during physical activity or waking you up at night) weight gain muscular fatigue, tiredness swelling of ankles or legs swelling of abdomen dizziness[betterhealth.vic.gov.au]
