464 Possible Causes for Decreased Oxygen Saturation, Edema

  • Chronic Thromboembolic Pulmonary Hypertension

    […] male with unexplained severe pulmonary arterial hypertension with a seven-day history of progressive shortness of breath, hemoptysis, chest discomfort and bilateral pedal edema[] 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 ).[] RESULTS: Hospital mortality (15 vs. 2.5%), reperfusion pulmonary edema (33 vs. 14%) and heart failure (23 vs. 3.3%) were all higher in group 1; however, after one year of[]

  • Amyloidosis

    MGUS and myeloma patients that have atypical features, including unexplained weight loss; lower extremity edema, early satiety, and dyspnea on exertion should be considered[] Patients usually exhibit symptoms of congestive heart failure, including: Shortness of breath Labored breathing during exercise Peripheral swelling ( edema caused by a buildup[] People with nephrotic syndrome may make dietary changes such as limiting dietary sodium (PDF, 167 KB), often from salt, to help reduce edema and lower blood pressure decreasing[]

  • Systemic Amyloidosis

    Autopsy findings showed massive, whole-body edema and mixed systemic amyloidosis (dialysis-related and AA amyloidosis).[] During this observation period, the level of IgE gradually increased and, at 2 years after the initial diagnosis, bilateral leg edema and ascites with marked hepatosplenomegaly[] We report a 72-year-old male patient with chronic abdominal distension, bilateral pitting pedal edema with nephrotic range proteinuria and amyloid deposition in liver and[]

  • Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension

    Common ADRs ( 2%) included anemia (4.6%), peripheral edema (4.1%), headache (3.6%), edema and face edema (2.6% each), abnormal hepatic function (2.3%), and epistaxis (2.1%[] There is a risk of pulmonary edema in patients with pulmonary venous involvement or fibrosing mediastinitis when treated with PAH therapies.[] METHODS: An electronic search will be performed for randomized controlled trials (RCTs) that reported the interested safety data (abnormal liver function, peripheral edema[]

  • Anemia

    Overperfusion with resultant disruption of the blood-brain barrier results in vasogenic edema, but not infarction.[] This physiology allows the body to maintain adequate oxygenation of tissues in the setting of decreased PO2 or increased demand for oxygen.[] […] brittle hair, and hair loss, especially near the outer edge of the eyebrows Brittle, dull, and thin nails Decreased sweating Swelling of the hands, face, and eyelids (called edema[]

  • Status Asthmaticus

    Imaging showed diffuse cerebral edema with central herniation. Difficult ventilation and hypercapnia directly contributed to her severe cerebral edema.[] oxygen saturation • Tachycardia and Hypertension • Signs of complication, tension pneumothorax, pneumomediastinum • Peak expiratory flow meter measurement 17.[] The goal of management is to improve hypoxemia, improve bronchoconstriction, and decrease airway edema through the administration of continuous nebulized beta2 adrenergic[]

  • Pulmonary Edema

    Pulmonary edema from different causes can either present acutely or chronically.[] Firstly, as pulmonary congestion increases, oxygen saturation decreases, resulting in decreased myocardial oxygen supply.[] saturations, and a sense of impending doom or drowning.[]

  • Obesity

    , which may be partly a consequence of elevated ventricular filling pressure, despite elevation in cardiac output. 49,50 However in patients with circadian venous edemas,[] […] in oxygen saturation and arousal or both (hypopnea).[] Wall M, Dollar JD, Sadun AA, Kardon R: Idiopathic intracranial hypertension: lack of histologic evidence for cerebral edema. Arch Neurol 1995, 52: 141–145.[]

  • Pneumonia

    In addition, the accumulation of plasma proteins results in a fluid build-up in the lungs, called pulmonary edema.[] The presence of normal oxygenation (oxygen saturation 96%) decreased the likelihood of pneumonia (LR, 0.47 [95% CI, 0.32-0.67]).[] There is consensus among scientists and clinicians on the life‐saving benefits of oxygen therapy for patients with severe pneumonia and signs of decreased oxygen saturation[]

  • Heart Failure

    Major criteria: · Paroxysmal nocturnal dyspnea · Neck vein distention · Rales · Radiographic cardiomegaly (increasing heart size on chest radiography) · Acute pulmonary edema[] Hypoxia increased minute ventilation and decreased the oxygen saturation and end-tidal carbon dioxide concentration in both groups.[] Plasma BNP concentration can reflect haemodynamic improvement and decreased levels are beneficial.[]
