177 Possible Causes for Decreased Oxygen Saturation, Hoarseness, Hypoxemia

  • Asthma

    A 72-year-old woman, known asthmatic, presented with chronic symptoms of hoarseness, dysphagia, chest heaviness, easy fatigability, cough, epigastric pain, feeling of abdominal[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] in saturation.[doi.org] Although the wheezing symptoms disappeared after systemic corticosteroid therapy, the exertional dyspnea and hypoxemia did not improve.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Croup

    METHODS: Children were classified as having recurrent croup if they had had 2 or more episodes of barky cough, inspiratory stridor, and hoarseness.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Emergency response must be considered immediately if you observe any of these more severe symptoms as children may have a very low tolerance to decreased oxygen saturation[radiologyinfo.org] […] rest Mild coarse stridor Stridor only during agitation/activity No or mild WOB Any of the following: Anxiety, mental status changes Stridor at rest Moderate, severe WOB Hypoxemia[chop.edu]

  • Pneumonia

    Adenovirus infections are only rare causes of significant disease in AIDS patients When symptomatic, upper respiratory tract infection causes fever, sore throat, cough, hoarseness[pathologyoutlines.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 Arterial Hypertension

    Cough, hemoptysis, and hoarseness are less common symptoms. Women are more likely to be symptomatic than men.[emedicine.medscape.com] […] to keep oxygen saturations to a goal of greater than 90 % and to decrease hypoxic vasoconstriction.[uscjournal.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]

  • Respiratory Bronchiolitis Interstitial Lung Disease

    […] voice嗄(さ)声 hoarseness嗄(さ)声 honeycomb lung蜂巣肺 Hoover's sign フーバー徴候 hospital acquired (nosocomial) infection院内感染 humidification加湿 humidifier加湿器 husky voice嗄(さ)声 hydrostatic[tokyo-med.ac.jp] , and decreased oxygen saturation on exercise (oxygen saturation 89%) ( 38 , e43 ).[aerzteblatt.de] […] in patients with interstitial lung disease is V/Q mismatch, with DLCO defect contributing to hypoxemia with activity increased expiratory flow rates due to increased radial[medbullets.com]

  • Pulmonary Fibrosis

    The risks of bronchoscopy are generally minor — most often a temporary sore throat and hoarseness from the passage of the bronchoscope — but the tissue samples are sometimes[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]

  • Bronchogenic Carcinoma

    He had dysphagia, weight loss and hoarseness of voice. Lab tests potassium of 2.5 mmol/l, with normal sodium, urea, creatinine. Bicarbonate 35 mmol/l.[endocrine-abstracts.org] […] easy rupture and causing hemoptysis Dyspnea (25%) Extrinsic or intraluminal airway obstruction Activation of mechanoreceptors and chemoreceptors in lungs due to cachexia or hypoxemia[epomedicine.com] […] often o SVC obstruction (5%) § Most often small cell · Associated clinical findings o Horner's syndrome § Pancoast tumor o Elevated hemidiaphragm § Phrenic nerve paralysis o Hoarseness[learningradiology.com]

  • Tuberculosis

    […] be suspected in any patient with symptoms including coughing for more than 3 weeks, loss of appetite, unexplained weight loss, night sweats, bloody sputum or hemoptysis, hoarseness[ada.org] With mechanical ventilation, oxygen saturation improved and oxygen requirements decreased to 0.4.[pubmedcentral.nih.gov] Adjunctive corticosteroids may be beneficial in patients with tuberculous meningitis, tuberculous pericarditis, or miliary tuberculosis with refractory hypoxemia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Acute Respiratory Failure

    Twenty months after the second operation, mild hoarseness was still present, but all other symptoms had disappeared.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] These include Altered mental status (agitation, somnolence) Peripheral or central cyanosis or decreased oxygen saturation on pulse oximetry Manifestations of a "stress response[mcgill.ca] Cyanosis is the bluish discoloration of the skin and mucous membranes caused by hypoxemia.[symptoma.com]

  • Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease

    On the other hand, use of ICS has been associated with an increase in the number of cases of pneumonia ( TORCH ; GOLD 2011 ) and of other adverse outcomes such as hoarseness[doi.org] Supplemental oxygen is recommended in those with low oxygen levels at rest (a partial pressure of oxygen less than 50–55 mmHg or oxygen saturations of less than 88%).[en.wikipedia.org] […] plus exercise-limiting hypoxemia or nocturnal hypoxemia, 4) exertional hypoxemia without hypoxemia at rest. (15;16) To confirm eligibility for LTOT, oximetry testing is required[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
