60 Possible Causes for Dyspnea with Sudden Onset, Lip Cyanosis, Pleural Effusion

  • Atelectasis

    RESULTS: 23% of the patients had changes in the lung related to pleural effusion, atelectasis or pneumonia/pneumonitis.[] Abstract We present a case of whole-lung torsion after massive pleural effusion and atelectasis.[] A chest ultrasound confirmed the presence of a lung consolidation and of a modest pleural effusion.[]

  • 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].[] Cyanosis (blue skin, lips, and nails caused by lack of oxygen to the tissues) is often seen.[] Real-time polymerase chain reaction tests of sputum and pleural effusion samples confirmed adenovirus serotype 7.[]

  • Congestive Heart Failure

    A 79-year-old woman experienced episodic dyspnea with unilateral pleural effusion for 2 years.[] Computed tomography and X-ray of the thorax showed left-sided pleural effusion.[] effusion · Decrease in vital capacity by one third from maximum recorded · Tachycardia (heart rate 120 beats/min.)[]

  • Pulmonary Edema

    Sudden onset of dyspnea. Severe anxiety, restlessness, irritability. Cool, moist skin.[] The heart rate is usually over 120 per minute, the pulse may be very weak and the lips and fingernail beds may be blue (cyanosis).[] We present a rare case in which a 57-year-old Korean man had a large amount of malignant pleural effusion.[]

  • Pneumococcal Pneumonia

    High C-reactive protein (CRP) ( 20 mg·dL(-1)) (odds ratio (OR) 2.36, 95% CI 1.45-3.85), pleural effusion (OR 2.03, 95% CI 1.13-3.65) and multilobar involvement (OR 1.69, 95%[] Two patients had pleural effusion requiring drainage.[] Chest radiography showed lobar pneumonia, right pleural effusion and cardiomegaly.[]

  • Cardiomyopathy

    […] ages: Prenatal to 62 years Palpitations Dyspnea Syncope Sudden death EKG: Multifocal ectopic Purkinje-related premature contractions Narrow sinus & junctional QRS complexes[] Associated pleural effusions may also be seen.[] effusions Cardiac catheterization with pressure measurements Possible myocardial biopsy to identify underlying cause Treatment References: [1] [3] [16] [17] Arrhythmogenic[]

  • Recurrent Pulmonary Embolism

    […] 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[] Three patients with malignant mesothelioma of the pleura presented with unilateral pleural effusion and recurrent horizontal linear opacities on the chest radiograph.[] A chest film 2 weeks earlier had revealed a right-sided cutoff of pulmonary vasculature; the current film showed right-sided pleural effusion.[]

  • Aspiration Pneumonia

    Pink-colored to red sputum (hemoptysis) Bluish tinge of the lips, fingers and/or toes (cyanosis) Causes Aspiration pneumonia is unlikely to arise in a healthy person who is[] Empyema (see Pleural Effusion ) also occasionally complicates aspiration.[] Ultrasonography Ultrasonography is helpful when confirming and locating pleural effusions.[]

  • Pneumonia

    Patients with pneumothorax present with sudden-onset dyspnea, ipsilateral chest pain, diminished breath sounds, and hyperresonant percussion on the affected side.[] Keywords: Pleural effusion, empyema, lung abscess, malignant pleural effusion, interventional radiology PLEURAL EFFUSION AND EMPYEMA Approximately 1.5 million patients are[] Dyspnea may be sudden or gradual in onset depending on the rate of development and size of the pneumothorax.[]

  • Bacterial Pneumonia

    Sudden onset of symptoms and rapid illness progression are associated with bacterial pneumonias.[] Pleural effusion: In this condition, fluid is accumulated around the lungs.[] Complications Without treatment, pneumonia may develop into: organ failure, due to bacterial infection difficulty breathing pleural effusion, buildup of fluid in the lungs[]
