  • Obesity

  • 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]

  • 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] It has not helped us understand why some patients with severe FEV1 impairment have better exercise tolerance compared with others with similar FEV1 values.[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]

  • 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] Numerous mechanisms unrelated to hemodynamic dysfunction may underlie impaired exercise tolerance in patients with chronic heart failure.[doi.org] […] of life, including dyspnoea, fatigue, poor exercise tolerance and fluid retention.[radcliffecardiology.com]

  • 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 impairment of exercise tolerance indicated by NYHA classification was markedly improved by PD for both groups.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] 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]

  • Atrial Fibrillation

    Importance Atrial fibrillation is a common arrhythmia that affects more than 2.5 million people in the United States and causes substantial morbidity and mortality, especially regarding the increased risk of stroke. Objective To summarize atrial fibrillation treatment exclusive of stroke prevention. Evidence Review An[…][doi.org]

  • Pulmonary Disorder

    OHS is characterized by hypersomnolence, dyspnea, and resting hypoxemia, leading to PH in severe cases.[ahajournals.org] Classic symptoms of an asthma attack are coughing, wheezing and shortness of breath (dyspnea).[draxe.com] Shortness of breath occurs with chronic bronchitis, but it may not be as severe during rest as it is in people with emphysema.[draxe.com]
