176 Possible Causes for Dyspnea with Sudden Onset, Pulmonary Infarction

  • 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[] An echocardiography and CT scan showed pulmonary embolism and infarction with a paradoxical thrombus visualised in both atria.[] “In summary, we found that the most reliable indicator of patients with PE is sudden onset dyspnea.[]

  • Atelectasis

  • Congestive Heart Failure

    Electrocardiography (ECG): ECG may show signs of right and left ventricular enlargement, myocardial infarction and arrhythmias.[] In cases of large, acute myocardial infarction (MI) and infarction of the mitral valve, support apparatus may produce atypical patterns of pulmonary edema that may mimic noncardiogenic[] […] embolism, renal failure, uncontrolled HTN Workup-EKG–to exclude myocardial ischemia or infarction, and/or arrhythmia Workup-lab CBC–to exclude anemia, BUN and creatinine–to[]

  • 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[] At autopsy, anaplastic lung carcinoma was found in the left basal segment with superimposed pulmonary infarction.[] CT pulmonary angiogram showed multifocal segmental acute to subacute pulmonary thromboembolism associated with bilateral pulmonary infarcts.[]

  • Acute Massive Pulmonary Embolism

    A73-year-old man was admitted to the intensive care unit because of sudden onset of dyspnea followed by syncope.[] […] in lung) Pulmonary embolism W infarction Pulmonary embolism with infarction Pulmonary fat embolism Pulmonary infarction Pulmonary microemboli Pulmonary thromboembolism Pulmonary[] […] morning of admission, an 89-year-old Caucasian woman with a medical history of dementia, hypertension and chronic obstructive pul- monary disease was noted to experience sudden-onset[]

  • Pulmonary Tumor Embolism

    Two years later, she was readmitted to our hospital because of the sudden onset of dyspnea and shock; and she died 5 hours after readmission.[] On autopsy, these opacities corresponded to areas of pulmonary infarction.[] Case Presentation: An 18 year old man with a history of asthma presented to the ER complaining of sudden onset dyspnea and cough. Lung examination and a CXR were normal.[]

  • Pulmonary Infarction

    He presents with sudden-onset dyspnea and pleuritic chest pain. In the emergency department, his heart rate is 90/minute, and his O2 saturation is 97 percent.[] Four of these pleuritic pain events evolved into a complex compatible with pulmonary infarction.[] Clinical features Sudden onset dyspnea Pleuritic chest pain Hemoptysis Clinical clues cannot make the diagnosis of PE; their main value lies in suggesting the diagnosis 9.[]

  • Pulmonary Edema

    Sudden onset of dyspnea. Severe anxiety, restlessness, irritability. Cool, moist skin.[] However, the heart may also be of normal size in cardiogenic edema after acute myocardial infarction.[] onset of dyspnea.[]

  • Sickle Cell Disease

    Acute chest syndrome is characterized by sudden onset of fever, chest pain, and pulmonary infiltrates. It may follow bacterial pneumonia.[] Other etiologies include pulmonary infarction and fat embolism resulting from bone marrow infarction.[] Abnormalities observed on chest X-rays can represent either pneumonia or death of lung tissue (pulmonary infarction).[]
