13 Possible Causes for Dyspnea with Sudden Onset, Hyperpnea, Patient Appears Acutely Ill

  • Pulmonary Edema

    Sudden onset of dyspnea. Severe anxiety, restlessness, irritability. Cool, moist skin.[] onset of dyspnea.[] onset of severe dyspnea and cough producing frothy pink sputum about one hour after the patient became extremely upset, as well as all the evidence from his clinical evaluations[]

  • Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome

    Definition Acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS), is a life-threatening condition which is characterised by the sudden onset of severe dyspnea and hypoxaemia [1].[] , hyperventilation is increased rate of breathing at rest, hyperpnea is an increase in breathing that is appropriately proportional to an increase in metabolic rate.[3] A[] 35][33][36] upright orthopnea ortho- -pnea or-THOP-nee-ə,[35][33][37][34]:audio or-thəp-NEE-ə[33][34]:print supine platypnea platy- -pnea plə-TIP-nee-ə[34][35] excessive hyperpnea[]

  • Pulmonary Embolism

    Consecutive patients with clinically suspected pulmonary embolism, defined as a sudden onset of dyspnea, sudden deterioration of existing dyspnea, or sudden onset of pleuritic[] “In summary, we found that the most reliable indicator of patients with PE is sudden onset dyspnea.[] […] in onset and may include one or many of the following: dyspnea (shortness of breath), tachypnea (rapid breathing), chest pain of a "pleuritic" nature (worsened by breathing[]

  • Carbon Monoxide Poisoning

    FULL TEXT Isocapnic Hyperpnea Accelerates Carbon Monoxide Elimination FISHER et al. Am. J. Respir. Crit. Care Med. 1999;159:1289-1292.[] Isocapnic hyperpnea accelerates carbon monoxide elimination.[] Fisher and colleagues ( 100, 101 ) have recently developed a method for normocapnic hyperpnea that allows for an increase in minute ventilation, and thus increased clearance[]

  • Acute Hyperventilation

    Most commonly, the history is one of sudden onset of dyspnea, chest pain, or neurologic symptoms (eg, dizziness, weakness, paresthesias, or near-syncope) after a stressful[] Abstract The hyperventilation syndrome is generally considered an acute, transitory episode characterized by gross hyperpnea and culminating in frank tetany.[] Hyperpnea or hyperventilation • Hyperpnea or hyperpnoea is increased depth of breathing when required to meet metabolic demand of body tissues, such as during or following[]

  • Septic Shock

    Amniotic fluid embolism Amniotic fluid embolism (AFE) is a catastrophic peripartum syndrome that manifests as a sudden onset of severe dyspnea, hypoxemia, hemodynamic collapse[] Some clues to a septic event include: Fever or unexplained signs with malignancy or instrumentation Hypotension Oliguria or anuria Tachypnea or hyperpnea Hypothermia without[] […] associated with Severe Sepsis and Septic Shock: Lungs: early fall in arterial PO 2, Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome (ARDS): capillary-leakage into alveoli; tachypnea, hyperpnea[]

  • Congestive Heart Failure

    Periodic breathing includes both obstructive and central sleep-related breathing disorders and is characterized by repertoires of apneas, hypopnea, and the recovery hyperpnea[]

  • Amniotic Fluid Embolism

    The common clinical presentation is sudden onset of dyspnea, hypotension inappropriate to the volume of blood loss, and hypoxia, followed by cardiopulmonary arrest.[] Most common findings include sudden onset of dyspnea, acute respiratory distress, marked hypotension, hypoxia, cyanosis and coagulopathy.[] […] and dramatic onset of hypotension, dyspnea, and cardiovascular collapse, which characterize the initial phase of this disorder.[]

  • Fat Embolism

    Onset is sudden. Presenting symptoms are myriad and include tachypnea, dyspnea and tachycardia.[] Tachypnea, dyspnea, and hypoxia appear as a result of ventilation-perfusion abnormalities 12-72 hours after injury.[] […] thrombocytopenia Elevated erythrocyte sedimentation rate Fat microglobulinemia Early signs of the systemic inflammatory response syndrome (SIRS) may herald the onset of FES[]

  • Psychogenic Hyperventilation

    Most commonly, the history is of sudden onset of dyspnea, chest pain, or neurologic symptoms (eg, dizziness, weakness, paresthesias, near syncope) following a stressful event[] -Does the patient appear well nourished or emaciated? -Is the patient sweating? -Weakness and emaciation.[] Synonyms Acidotic hyperventilation Hyperpnea Hyperventilation Intermittent hyperventilation O/E - hyperpnea O/E - hyperventilating Index to Diseases and Injuries References[]
