4,683 Possible Causes for Dyspnea, Edema

  • Anemia

    Overperfusion with resultant disruption of the blood-brain barrier results in vasogenic edema, but not infarction.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Acute anemia presents with symptoms owing to acute blood loss; chronic anemia may present with worsening fatigue, dyspnea, lightheadedness, or chest pain.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] brittle hair, and hair loss, especially near the outer edge of the eyebrows Brittle, dull, and thin nails Decreased sweating Swelling of the hands, face, and eyelids (called edema[verywell.com]

  • Heart Failure

    edema in patients who in fact have cardiogenic edema.[emedicine.com] We introduced oxycodone for medically refractory dyspnea instead of morphine because of the patient's renal insufficiency.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Compared with control group, there was no effect on dyspnea improvement.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Cor Pulmonale

  • Obesity

    Edema Edema (American English), oedema or œdema (British English), formerly known as dropsy or hydropsy, is the increase of interstitial fluid in any organ — swelling.[empoweryourhealth.org] It is likely that obesity modifies the clinical picture of COPD because of its effects on the perception of dyspnea and exercise tolerance.[dx.doi.org] , which may be partly a consequence of elevated ventricular filling pressure, despite elevation in cardiac output. 49,50 However in patients with circadian venous edemas,[dx.doi.org]

  • Cardiomyopathy

    DIAGNOSIS: The chest x-ray revealed pulmonary edema.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Symptoms: Patients with cardiomyopathy will typically present with dyspnea, orthopnea, paroxysmal nocturnal dyspnea, bilateral edema, and fatigue.[symptoma.com] CASE PRESENTATION: A 55-year-old woman presented with frank pulmonary edema and received a diagnosis of noncompaction cardiomyopathy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • High Output Heart Failure

    Abstract Detailed hemodynamic, metabolic and blood volume studies were performed in a patient with hydatidiform mole who developed pulmonary edema associated with a high cardiac[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] After the procedure, dyspnea was improved and procedure related complication was not seen.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Asthma Interstitial pulmonary edema Alveolar pulmonary edema Cardiogenic pulmonary edema Non-cardiogenic pulmonary edema 2.[lecturio.com]

  • Pulmonary Edema

    Pulmonary edema from different causes can either present acutely or chronically.[symptoma.com] […] describe a case of fatal contralateral RPE in a 59-years-old woman with right lung cancer underwent ultrasound-guided thoracentesis for massive pleural effusion and severe dyspnea[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] (FPE), is rapid onset pulmonary edema.[en.wikipedia.org]

  • Coronary Atherosclerosis

    Signs suggestive of congestive cardiac failure may be seen such as limb edema, pulmonary congestion, diaphoresis, abdominal swelling, etc.[symptoma.com] Although women have more frequent chest pain than men, atypical symptoms such as nausea, dyspnea, and fatigue make it difficult to determine their risk of coronary artery[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Other symptoms of CAV may be like those of heart failure and include excessive fatigue, peripheral edema, and shortness of breath.[thecardiologyadvisor.com]
