711 Possible Causes for Dyspnea at Rest

  • Interventricular Septum Aneurysm

    Available from: A 16-year-old black boy presented with complaints of shortness of breath, dyspnea at rest during the last month.[heartviews.org] Full Text A 24-year-old black man presented to the emergency department of our hospital with fatigue and dyspnea at rest of two weeks duration.[elsevier.pt] Texto Completo A 24-year-old black man presented to the emergency department of our hospital with fatigue and dyspnea at rest of two weeks duration.[elsevier.pt]

  • Panic Attacks

    The author gives an account of the analysis of a young woman suffering from severe panic attacks. He describes the initial problems of the setting and how they are progressively overcome, the emergence of highly structured psychotic nuclei and the gradual approach to the patient's splits. Whereas the panic[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Asthma

    Noninvasive ventilation mainly works by improving alveolar ventilation, resting fatigued ventilatory muscles, relieving dyspnea, and improving gas exchange, while it avoids[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Table 2 Clinical and functional assessment of severe asthma exacerbations Variable Severe exacerbation Imminent respiratory arrest Symptoms Dyspnea At rest Speech Single words[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Obesity

    The prevalence of obesity and overweight increased in the United States between 1978 and 1991. More recent reports have suggested continued increases but are based on self-reported data. To examine trends and prevalences of overweight (body mass index [BMI] or 25) and obesity (BMI or 30), using measured[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease

    The diagnosis of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) should be suspected in patients with risk factors (primarily a history of smoking) who report dyspnea at rest[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Long-acting bronchodilators have recently been shown to reduce hyperinflation during both rest and exercise in moderate to severe COPD.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The corollary of this is that any intervention that reduces end-expiratory lung volume will improve effort–displacement ratios and alleviate dyspnea.[doi.org]

  • Pneumonia

    Spontaneous pneumothorax usually occurs at rest, and only 10% of cases occur during exercise4.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The onset of symptoms for a spontaneous pneumothorax normally occurs at rest. A sudden attack of chest pain is often the first symptom.[healthline.com] In patients suffering PSP, the pain and dyspnea usually resolve within 24 hours, but patients experiencing SSP usually have more severe symptoms.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Heart Failure

    These include, among others: Dyspnea ( exertional-, dyspnea at rest, orthopnea, paroxysmal nocturnal dyspnea); Fatigue, inadequate exhaustion after stress, weakness, lethargy[flexikon.doccheck.com]

  • Psychogenic Hyperventilation

    Normal tidal volumes range from 35-45% of vital capacity at rest.[unp.me] The elastic recoil of the chest wall resists hyperinflation of the lungs beyond that level, and inspiratory volumes beyond this level are perceived as effort or dyspnea.[unp.me]

  • Congestive Heart Failure

    Initially dyspnea occurs only at exertion. Later on orthopnea and paroxysmal nocturnal dyspnea also develop. Later on dyspnea occurs even at rest.[symptoma.com] When congestive heart failure worsens, fluid backs up into the lungs and interferes with oxygen getting into the blood, causing dyspnea at rest and at night (orthopnea).[emedicinehealth.com] The person will have dyspnea (shortness of breath) on exertion and in severe cases, dyspnea at rest. Increasing breathlessness on lying flat, called orthopnea, occurs.[en.wikipedia.org]

  • Morbid Obesity

    Morbid obesity is associated with liver pathology, most commonly non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH) leading to cirrhosis. However, the morbid obesity impedes qualification for organ transplantation. We present a case report of a 56-year-old woman who underwent bariatric procedure followed by liver transplantation[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
