561 Possible Causes for Dyspnea at Rest, Expectoration of Pink and Frothy Sputum

  • 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] 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] Why It Happens Shortness of breath (also called dyspnea) ...breathlessness during activity (most commonly), at rest, or while sleeping, which may come on suddenly and wake[heart.org]

  • Pulmonary Edema

    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] Entry required HF symptoms at rest or minimal exertion and signs of congestion ( 2 of the following: dyspnea, jugular venous distention, or peripheral edema) at time of randomization[jama.jamanetwork.com]

  • Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome

    This rapidly progresses to severe dyspnea at rest, tachypnea, anxiety, agitation, and the need for increasingly high concentrations of inspired oxygen.[emedicine.medscape.com] With the onset of lung injury, patients initially note dyspnea with exertion.[emedicine.medscape.com]

  • Aspiration Pneumonia

    Aspiration pneumonia is a type of lung infection that is due to a relatively large amount of material from the stomach or mouth entering the lungs. Signs and symptoms often include fever and cough of relatively rapid onset. Complications may include lung abscess. Some include chemical pneumonitis as a subtype, which[…][en.wikipedia.org]

  • High Altitude Pulmonary Edema

    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] “Symptoms include fatigue, severe dyspnea at rest, and cough that is initially dry but may progress to produce pink, frothy sputum.[drfrafiq.wordpress.com] Reported clinical manifestations include: dyspnea at rest cough with frothy pink sputum production neurological disturbances associated with concomitant brain edema The pathogenesis[radiopaedia.org]

  • Inhalation Burn

    After suffering an inhalation burn, a 22-year-old male was intubated for seven days. Full-length massive scar formation in the upper airway necessitated tracheostomy five months later. After this, the stenosis became complete in the cricoid region, and a long cannula was needed to maintain the severely damaged[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Panic Attacks

    Panic attacks and respiratory disease have been shown to have probable links; which one is the precursor to the other is unknown. However, what is known is that there is a correlation between high serum carbon dioxide and lactate levels, which are suffocation indicators, and panic attacks. Females are at a higher[…][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

    BACKGROUND: Monogenic obesity results from single gene mutations. Extreme obesity starting at an early age, especially in infancy, which is associated with endocrinopathy and metabolic disturbances is key to the diagnosis of monogenic obesity. CASE PRESENTATION: A 6-month-old boy was admitted to our clinic with[…][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]
