32 Possible Causes for Distended Neck Veins, Hemothorax, Tension Pneumothorax

  • Pneumothorax

    Tension pneumothorax—time for a re-think?[] […] into thorax convert 860.1 to ICD-10-CM 860.2 Traumatic hemothorax without mention of open wound into thorax convert 860.2 to ICD-10-CM 860.3 Traumatic hemothorax with open[] A tension pneumothorax additionally presents with distended neck veins, tracheal deviation , and hemodynamic instability.[]

  • Chest Trauma

    Obstructive shock and hypoxia are the results of a tension pneumothorax. If a tension pneumothorax worsens, a mediastinal shift will occur.[] RECENT FINDINGS: In the past, VATS was used to evacuate traumatic-retained hemothorax.[] Assess pulses for quality, rate, regularity Look at neck veins - flat vs. distended-fluid deficit or decreased supply to body from heart due to compression.[]

  • Laceration of the Lung

    Obstructive shock and hypoxia are the results of tension pneumothorax.[] CT scan: Better for showing the laceration Also can show complications Bronchial fistulas Differential Diagnosis Pneumothorax Tension Pneumothorax Hemothorax Massive Hemothorax[] Distended neck veins Cyanosis in the face and neck Hemorrhage into the sclera of the eye, signaling the bursting of small blood vessels.[]

  • Hemothorax

    Tension Pneumothorax. Tension pneumothorax is a condition in which air enters the pleural cavity outside the lung and becomes trapped.[] Traumatický hemotorax Dutch traumatische hemothorax , hemothorax; traumatisch , traumatisch; hemothorax , Traumatische hemothorax French Hémothorax traumatique Hungarian[] neck veins, muffled heart sounds) - pulsus paradoxus - Kussmaul's sign - ECHO - IV fluids - pericardiocentesis - open thoracotomy[]

  • Distended Neck Veins

    CT of tension pneumothorax The presence of chest tubes does not mean a patient cannot develop a tension pneumothorax.[] […] other wound (hole 2/3 tracheal diameter) /- exit wound - Unequal breathsounds - ABG's: decreased pO2 - Air-tight dressing sealed on 3 sides - Chest tube - Surgery Massive Hemothorax[] What Causes Distended Neck Veins?[]

  • Traumatic Pneumothorax

    The mediastinal shift that was caused by the tension pneumothorax (Fig. 5 in the Supplementary Appendix ) caused mild circulatory instability (blood pressure, 80/40 mm Hg;[] METHODS: Eighty-one patients with pneumothorax and/or hemothorax were subdivided into two groups.[] neck veins Massive hemothorax:High Blood pressure What else could this be?[]

  • Traumatic Rupture of Pulmonary Vessels

    Tension pneumothorax is life-threatening and may be fatal.[] Penetrating injuries that violate the pleura typically result in pneumothorax, with an accompanying hemothorax in most cases.[] Neck veins may not be distended if hypovolemia is present, and muffled heart tones are often not present.[]

  • Hemopneumothorax

    See also [ edit ] Catamenial pneumothorax Tension pneumothorax Pulmonary contusion References [ edit ] Grainger & Allison's Diagnostic Radiology (6 ed.).[] Abstract We describe a case of catamenial hemothorax and hemopneumothorax occurring on both sides simultaneously; the patient responded remarkably with danazol therapy.[] veins Flat Distended Distended Percussion Dull Hyperresonant Normal Trachea Midline/deviated Deviated Midline Chest symmetry Normal/asymmetrical Asymmetrical Normal Breath[]

  • Rib Fracture

    In the case of a tension pneumothorax is required urgently to ensure the drainage of the pleural cavity.[] KEYWORDS: Diaphragmatic Injury; Hemothorax; Thoracic Surgery, Video-Assisted; Thoracic Trauma[] neck veins • Severe chest pain • Decreased or absent breath sounds of affected lung • Decreased blood pressure • Asymmetric chest expansion If a pneumothorax is suspected[]

  • Tension Pneumothorax

    With the pressure gradually decreasing dueto this maneuver, tension pneumothorax slowly turns into simple pneumothorax.[] […] other wound (hole 2/3 tracheal diameter) /- exit wound - Unequal breathsounds - ABG's: decreased pO2 - Air-tight dressing sealed on 3 sides - Chest tube - Surgery Massive Hemothorax[] However, the classic physical examination findings of tracheal deviation and distended neck veins are poorly sensitive in the diagnosis of tension pneumothorax.[]
