32 Possible Causes for Decreased Oxygen Saturation, Hoarseness, Mild Hypoxemia

  • 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[] The presence of normal oxygenation (oxygen saturation 96%) decreased the likelihood of pneumonia (LR, 0.47 [95% CI, 0.32-0.67]).[] Hoarseness is a common feature. Headache affects the majority of symptomatic sufferers. Fever is relatively unusual.[]

  • Pulmonary Fibrosis

    […] in oxygen saturations to below 89% or the need for oxygen at rest.[] 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[] […] 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[]

  • Asthma

    […] in saturation.[] In the early stages of acute, severe asthma, analysis of arterial blood gases usually reveals mild hypoxemia, hypocapnia and respiratory alkalosis.[] A 72-year-old woman, known asthmatic, presented with chronic symptoms of hoarseness, dysphagia, chest heaviness, easy fatigability, cough, epigastric pain, feeling of abdominal[]

  • Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease

    In summary, the eligibility criteria for LTOT in Ontario are: 1) severe hypoxemia, 2) mild-to-moderate hypoxemia with specific comorbidities, 3) mild-to-moderate hypoxemia[] 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[] 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%).[]

  • 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[]

  • Influenza

    The prognosis for patients with avian influenza is related to the degree and duration of hypoxemia.[] Signs of serious allergic reaction can include breathing problems, hoarseness or wheezing, hives, paleness, weakness, a fast heartbeat, or dizziness.[] oxygen saturation, respiratory rate 25 per minute, and concomitant diarrhea are crucial for admission decision-making.[]

  • Croup

    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[] MILD MODERATE/SEVERE Any of the following: Barky cough, hoarse voice No stridor at rest Mild coarse stridor Stridor only during agitation/activity No or mild WOB Any of the[] METHODS: Children were classified as having recurrent croup if they had had 2 or more episodes of barky cough, inspiratory stridor, and hoarseness.[]

  • Pulmonary Hypertension

    Studies in patients with advanced COPD and hypoxemia have shown a very high prevalence of PH; however, prevalence in mild and moderate COPD is not known.[] Uncommon symptoms include cough, hemoptysis and hoarseness.[] 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.[]

  • Acute Respiratory Failure

    These include Altered mental status (agitation, somnolence) Peripheral or central cyanosis or decreased oxygen saturation on pulse oximetry Manifestations of a "stress response[] The hypercapnic ARF is invariably associated to alveolar hypoventilation with resulting mild hypoxemia.[] Twenty months after the second operation, mild hoarseness was still present, but all other symptoms had disappeared.[]

  • Cor Pulmonale

    The severity of cor pulmonale appears to correlate with the magnitude of hypoxemia, hypercapnia, and airflow obstruction.[] Symptoms of CPM include fatigue, lethargy, dypsnoea on exertion, tachypnoea, chest pain, exertional syncope, dyspnoea at rest, nonproductive cough, haemoptysis, hoarseness[] […] expiratory airflow obstruction as evidenced by decreased oxygen saturation levels 51.[]
