2,785 Possible Causes for Dyspnea, Tachycardia

  • Acute Bronchitis

    Pneumonia should be suspected in patients with tachypnea, tachycardia, dyspnea, or lung findings suggestive of pneumonia, and radiography is warranted.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Studies Making the diagnosis based on history and physical exam imaging is not necessary Differential Pneumonia differentiating factor a cough with fever, tachypnea, or tachycardia[medbullets.com] However, patients who complain of dyspnea should have pulse oximetry to rule out hypoxemia.[merckmanuals.com]

  • Anemia

    Symptoms may include: Abnormal paleness or lack of color of the skin Increased heart rate (tachycardia) Breathlessness, or difficulty catching a breath (dyspnea) Lack of energy[chop.edu] 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] Physical examination may show jaundice, tachypnea, tachycardia, and heart failure, especially in children with severe or acute anemia.[aafp.org]

  • Panic Attacks

    This leads to an increased heart rate ( tachycardia ), rapid breathing ( hyperventilation ) which may be perceived as shortness of breath ( dyspnea ), and sweating.[en.wikipedia.org] According to our observations, some migraine subjects develop panic attacks with the typical symptoms (palpitation, dyspnea, anxiety/fear, shiver, sweating, polyuria) on the[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] As the major symptom of a terminal illness that threatens our most basic physical requirement, dyspnea in COPD is open to catastrophic misinterpretation.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease

    The severity of COPD correlates with various arrhythmic manifestations such as atrial fibrillation, atrial flutter, and either sustained or nonsustained ventricular tachycardia[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] MEASUREMENT OF DYSPNEA IN COPD Section: The two purposes of measuring dyspnea are: to differentiate between patients who have less dyspnea and those who have more dyspnea[dx.doi.org] […] of carbon dioxide can lead to a myriad of symptoms, including: Shortness of breath Wheezing Persistent cough Excessive mucus production Chronic fatigue Rapid heartbeat ( tachycardia[verywell.com]

  • Pulmonary Edema

    In both procedures, patients developed severe hypertension and tachycardia, with subsequent oxygen desaturations with noted pulmonary edema.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] 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] High altitude pulmonary edema (HAPE) is a form of high altitude illness characterized by cough, dyspnea upon exertion progressing to dyspnea at rest and eventual death, seen[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Heart Failure

    We describe the novel use of bilateral cardiac sympathectomy in a woman with end-stage heart failure caused by ventricular tachycardia refractory to standard medical therapy[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] We introduced oxycodone for medically refractory dyspnea instead of morphine because of the patient's renal insufficiency.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Electrophysiology study revealed focal atrial tachycardia from an unusual location which was successfully ablated.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Congestive Heart Failure

    ECG and telemetry revealed relatively slow supraventricular tachycardia, which did not trigger the alert, and catheter ablation successfully controlled the heart failure.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Features due to left heart failure: Dyspnea, orthopnea and paroxysmal nocturnal dyspnea: These symptoms develop due to congestion of the lungs.[symptoma.com] Cardiac causes include arrhythmias (tachycardia or bradycardia), structural heart disease, and myocardial dysfunction (systolic or diastolic).[emedicine.com]

  • Influenza

    The next morning, he complained of acute-onset shortness of breath and had hypotension and tachycardia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Seizures, altered consciousness, and dyspnea occurred later. A nasopharyngeal swab revealed a positive reaction for the influenza A antigen.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] 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]

  • Asthma

    The tachycardia, hypertension, and neurological symptoms improved.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] It is characterized by spasmodic contraction of airway smooth muscle, wheezing, and dyspnea (dyspnea, paroxysmal). Asthma is a chronic disease that affects your airways.[icd9data.com] The end result may be sudden cardiovascular collapse, with systemic hypotension and tachycardia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Iron Deficiency Anemia

    Symptoms may include: Abnormal paleness or lack of color of the skin Irritability Lack of energy or tiring easily (fatigue) Increased heart rate (tachycardia) Sore or swollen[chop.edu] Patients may complain of: Fatigue Pallor Weakness Headache Palpitations Dizziness Dyspnea Irritability Poor concentration, impaired development Hair loss Impaired temperature[symptoma.com] License: CC BY-SA 3.0 Tachycardia Fatigue Weakness Lack of concentration Diminished strength Further clinical symptoms are dry skin, possible headache and hair loss.[lecturio.com]
