616 Possible Causes for Edema, Orthopnea

  • Pneumonia

    In addition, the accumulation of plasma proteins results in a fluid build-up in the lungs, called pulmonary edema.[bumc.bu.edu] Fluid management is critical to minimize the risk of pulmonary edema.[clinicaladvisor.com] Pulmonary edema makes it harder to breathe and harder for oxygen and carbon dioxide to pass between blood in the lungs and inhaled air, as these gases need to do for the body[bumc.bu.edu]

  • Acute Bronchitis

    CHF Patients with CHF may cough but also have other symptoms and signs such as dyspnea on exertion, orthopnea, rales on lung examination, peripheral edema, raised jugular[online.epocrates.com] An airway that is exposed to certain environmental agents, such as irritants or allergens, responds quickly to a cough and bronchospasm, followed by mucous production, edema[symptoma.com] Inflammation and edema of the respiratory epithelium may be reduced with inhaled corticosteroids.[en.wikipedia.org]

  • Acute Myocarditis

    Among many cardiac imaging techniques, only cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR) and computer tomography permit a direct detection of edema during acute myocarditis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Case 1: A 48-years-old, previously healthy male patient admitted to our clinic with complaints of acute onset of rest dyspnea and orthopnea, started the day before.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] , vomiting Fever, tachycardia Myopericarditis Chest pain, breathlessness Pericardial rub, signs of tamponade Myocardial dysfunction Chest pain, breathlessness, collapse, orthopnea[rcemlearning.co.uk]

  • Congestive Heart Failure

    Peripheral edema: Edema develops in the feet in ambulatory patients and sacral edema in bed bound patients.[symptoma.com] A 35-year-old woman presented to the ED with a 2-month history of shortness of breath, dyspnea on exertion, decreased exercise tolerance, and orthopnea.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] A 31-year-old woman complained of dyspnea and orthopnea at 38 weeks of gestation.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Superior Vena Cava Syndrome

    Rarely, emergent airway issues and cerebral edema must be addressed. Definitive treatment includes radiotherapy, chemotherapy, and stenting.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Respiratory symptoms : initially started as orthopnea, later on progressed to dyspnea.[telemedicina.med.muni.cz] The subject of this case report, who fell into the mild category, evinced only slight orthopnea, intermittent dry cough, facial plethora, and superficial blue vessels on the[karger.com]

  • Restrictive Cardiomyopathy

    A 75-year-old man was admitted for evaluation of marked edema and jaundice. Serum total bilirubin was elevated above 20 mg/dl.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Institute of Medical Sciences, Ansari Nagar, New Delhi-110029, India History: A 23 year old male presented with increasing dyspnea, abdominal distension, pedal edema and orthopnea[scmr.org] When the legs are elevated at night, the fluid redistributes centrally causing pulmonary edema resulting in orthopnea (dyspnea while laying flat) or paroxysmal nocturnal dyspnea[healio.com]

  • Pericardial Effusion

    Fluid retention may be present as edema, weight gain, or third place fluid collection. Pericardial effusion is rarely seen with docetaxel treatment.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The pressure from the outside causes the blood to pool back and accumulate in the lungs which causes the symptoms of orthopnea and dyspnea.[pericarditispain.info] A 61-year-old male patient was admitted to our hospital for progressive leg edema, dyspnea on exertion, and lower-extremity muscle weakness.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Ascites

    Here we reported an extraordinarily rare case of intra-pericardial paraganglioma presenting as faint, pitting edema, abdominal fullness with ascites, and hemopericardium with[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The shortness of breath tends to be worse with activity and with lying flat (orthopnea).[emedicinehealth.com] We reported a 50-year-old woman with TAFRO syndrome diagnosed 2 years after the initial symptoms of a fever, fatigue, epigastric pain, edema, ascites, lymphadenopathy, thrombocytopenia[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Aortic Valve Insufficiency

    Hypotension, flash pulmonary edema and shock can also occur.[healio.com] Angina with exertion, orthopnea, and paroxysmal nocturnal dyspnea are also principal complaints.[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com] Pulmonary edema and right ventricular failure quickly result.[openanesthesia.org]

  • Mitral Valve Stenosis

    Postpartum complications included pulmonary edema as well as peripartum heart failure and pulmonary thromboembolism 4 weeks postpartum.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] As the stenosis worsens, symptoms of orthopnea, paroxysmal nocturnal dyspnea or dyspnea on exertion develops.[symptoma.com] Ascites and edema and hepatomegaly (if right-side heart failure develops) [2] Fatigue and weakness increase with exercise and pregnancy.
