76 Possible Causes for Decreased Oxygen Saturation, Hoarseness, Respiratory Acidosis

  • Smoke Inhalation Injury

    His ABG result demonstrates a severe metabolic and respiratory acidosis.[] No statistically significant correlation was found between intubation and any of the classic symptoms of smoke inhalation: stridor, hoarseness, drooling, and dysphagia (all[] In most cases, mucosal edema and irritation eventually result in stridor, hoarseness, dyspnea, hypoxia, and tachypnea, whereas accompanying burns on the face and surrounding[]

  • 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[]

  • General Anesthesia

    Twenty minutes after the start of dextran infusion, her lungs suddenly became difficult to ventilate, and oxygen saturation decreased to 90%.[] On the first postoperative day, she complained left sided tongue deviation, subtle hoarseness and swallowing difficulty.[] Apnea was defined as a pause in breathing for more than 15 s or more than 10 s if associated with oxygen saturation less than 80% or bradycardia (20% decrease in heart rate[]

  • Guillain-Barré Syndrome

    Respiratory assistance should also be considered when there is a decrease in oxygen saturation (arterial partial pressure of oxygen [PO 2 ] 70 mm Hg).[] They include: 28 [13] Respiratory failure requiring mechanical ventilation Coma Ballismus Cardiomyopathy from dysautonomia [38] Lactic acidosis Recurrence Prognosis Generally[] She did not have hoarseness butshe had mild dysarthria and experienced mild difficulty inswallowing.[]

  • Amyloidosis

    Diagnostic exams revealed type 2 respiratory failure with acidosis (pH 7.24; PaO 2 58 mmHg, PaCO 2 55 mmHg, HCO 3 23.6 mmol/l, and lactates 2.66 mmol/l); normocytic anemia[] […] 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[] Amyloid in soft tissues can lead to macroglossia, hoarseness, salivary gland or submandibular gland enlargement, subcutaneous nodules, lymphadenopathy, or arthropathy.[]

  • 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[]

  • Upper Respiratory Infection

    Respiratory acidosis and electrolyte imbalance must be corrected as well. Avoid smoking: Smoke irritates the nose and the throat.[] Additional to the secondary infection can be laryngitis (hoarseness/”frog in the throat”) , traccheitis, (irritation of trachea) , acute bronchitis, sinusitis, and even the[] This definition reads, “oxygen saturation decreased to In collaboration with the participating centers, the authors (a priori) defined those events that seemed directly related[]

  • Asthma

    Metabolic acidosis denotes impeding respiratory arrest.[] 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.[]

  • Inhalation Burn

    His ABG result demonstrates a severe metabolic and respiratory acidosis.[] When ventilating children with poor compliance we use pressure control ventilation and tolerate moderate hypercapnia and respiratory acidosis to facilitate control of inflating[] Continued anaerobic metabolism and increased acidosis can have a lethal outcome.[]

  • Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease

    Eventually, hypercapnia and respiratory acidosis develop, leading to pulmonary artery vasoconstriction and cor pulmonale.[] 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%).[]
