22 Possible Causes for Decreased Oxygen Saturation, Hoarseness, Impaired Exercise Tolerance

  • Amyloidosis

    […] problems Swelling in the arms and legs Swollen tongue Weak hand grip Weight loss or weight gain Other symptoms that may occur with this disease: Decreased urine output Diarrhea Hoarseness[] Physical examination showed anasarca, blood pressure 114/81 mmHg, heart rate (HR) 67 bpm and 90% oxygen saturation in room air.[] Amyloid in soft tissues can lead to macroglossia, hoarseness, salivary gland or submandibular gland enlargement, subcutaneous nodules, lymphadenopathy, or arthropathy.[]

  • Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension

    Cough, hemoptysis, and hoarseness are less common symptoms. Women are more likely to be symptomatic than men.[] Affected individuals may also have a cough, sometimes with blood (hemoptysis), an enlarged heart and liver, low blood pressure (hypotension), and hoarseness due to compression[] Hoarseness due to recurrent laryngeal nerve compression by an enlarged pulmonary artery (ie, Ortner syndrome) also occurs rarely.[]

  • Pulmonary Hypertension

    Although cardiac index remained fairly stable (1.9 –3.1) the mixed venous oxygen saturation ( Sv O 2 ) decreased as low as 40% over the subsequent days.[] […] capacity, reduce exercise tolerance, 87 induce iron deficiency, 24 and increase the risk of stroke. 88 If phlebotomy is performed, iron status should be monitored closely[] Uncommon symptoms include cough, hemoptysis and hoarseness.[]

  • 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[] […] in oxygen saturations to below 89% or the need for oxygen at rest.[] […] important and it is recommended to refer patients with IPF for consideration of transplant when they demonstrate a 10% or greater reduction in FVC over six months and a decrease[]

  • Myasthenia Gravis

    A case of laryngeal myasthenia gravis in a 65-year-old woman presenting with hoarseness as the sole symptom is reported.[] Monitoring arterial pO 2 or oxygen saturation is not enough, as vital capacity can decrease markedly before these parameters change.[] Difficulty climbing stairs, lifting objects, or rising from a seated position Difficulty talking Drooping head Facial paralysis or weakness of the facial muscles Fatigue Hoarseness[]

  • 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[] It has not helped us understand why some patients with severe FEV1 impairment have better exercise tolerance compared with others with similar FEV1 values.[] 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%).[]

  • 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[] […] in saturation.[] There was no significant difference in hoarseness or headache between the treatment groups.[]

  • Anemia

    Those that do may exhibit lethargy, poor feeding, constipation, and a hoarse cry. Another telltale sign is prolonged jaundice.[] This physiology allows the body to maintain adequate oxygenation of tissues in the setting of decreased PO2 or increased demand for oxygen.[] […] components (mostly hyaluronic acid) in the lower layer of the skin, causing symptoms and signs like: Coarse hair and skin Puffiness of the face or all over Tongue enlargement Hoarseness[]

  • 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[] It may improve chest wall mobility and enhance exercise tolerance.[] The presence of normal oxygenation (oxygen saturation 96%) decreased the likelihood of pneumonia (LR, 0.47 [95% CI, 0.32-0.67]).[]

  • Cor Pulmonale

    […] expiratory airflow obstruction as evidenced by decreased oxygen saturation levels 51.[] Symptoms of CPM include fatigue, lethargy, dypsnoea on exertion, tachypnoea, chest pain, exertional syncope, dyspnoea at rest, nonproductive cough, haemoptysis, hoarseness[] Nonspecific: fatigue, tachypnea, exertional dyspnea, cough, anginal chest pain, hemoptysis, hoarseness What nonspecific signs may indicate underlying lung disease Increase[]
