  • Pneumonia

    A 59-year-old man with a history of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) presented with dry cough, low-grade fever, and progressive dyspnea.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Pneumonia can cause hypoxia and increased work of breathing.[ems1.com] She presented with fever, cough, dyspnea and pleuritic chest pain. Chest radiograph showed bilateral infiltrations.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis

    VEGF-A receptors and co-receptors were differentially expressed by hypoxia and hyperoxia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Interstitial lung disease (ILD) is associated with low exercise tolerance, dyspnea, and decreased health-related quality of life (HRQL).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] All patients with dyspnea and suspected interstitial lung disease referred to the University of Michigan for enrollment in the Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis Specialized Center[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Upper Respiratory Infection

    Tachypnea and dyspnea are also signs of lower respiratory involvement.[emedicine.medscape.com] Sometimes hospitalization may be necessary if upper respiratory infection is severe and causes significant dehydration , respiratory difficulty with poor oxygenation ( hypoxia[rxlist.com] Lower respiratory tract infections are more likely than upper respiratory tract infections to cause fever, dyspnea, or chest pain.[wwwnc.cdc.gov]

  • Influenza

    […] some or all of the following findings: Fever of 100-104 F; fever is generally lower in elderly patients than in young adults Tachycardia, which most likely results from hypoxia[emedicine.medscape.com] There can also be tachycardia and dyspnea but with hypotension. Vomiting and diarrhea may also occur, but are rare findings associated with the disorder.[symptoma.com] Patients may report nonproductive cough, cough-related pleuritic chest pain, and dyspnea. In children, diarrhea may be a feature.[emedicine.medscape.com]

  • Acute Bronchitis

    Pertussis is a highly contagious bacterial respiratory illness with several potentially severe complications, including dehydration, hypoxia, encephalopathy, syncope, seizures[journals.lww.com] Pneumonia should be suspected in patients with tachypnea, tachycardia, dyspnea, or lung findings suggestive of pneumonia, and radiography is warranted.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Differential Diagnosis of Acute Bronchitis The acute bronchitis must be differentiated from other diseases that may cause cough , dyspnea and wheezing .

  • Cor Pulmonale

    The first cause of increased PVR is chronic long-standing alveolar hypoxia which induces pulmonary vascular remodeling.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] We report the case of a 40-year-old woman who died after 3 days of progressive dyspnea, cough, and pulmonary hypertension.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Hypoxia and endothelial dysfunction play a central role in the development of pulmonary hypertension. Cor pulmonale is a maladaptive response to pulmonary hypertension.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
