208 Possible Causes for Exertional Dyspnea, Pleurisy, Tachycardia

  • Pulmonary Embolism

    Dyspnea may be absent or occur only with exertion. The onset of dyspnea may occur over seconds to days. Orthopnea occurs with PE as well as heart failure.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Pulmonary embolism (PE) represents a clinical challenge for clinicians because of nonspecific presentations, including dyspnea, chest pain, and tachycardia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] It can mimic pneumonia, congestive heart failure, and a viral illness known as pleurisy.[vascularcures.org]

  • Pneumonia

    She was emergently admitted to our hospital due to the worsening exertional dyspnea and severe hypoxemia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] A 23-month-old girl visited the emergency department with high fever, cough, first wheezing episode, chest retraction and tachycardia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] At 68, Clinton falls into this category, and complications of pneumonia include: Pleurisy—where the thin linings between your lungs and ribcage (pleura) become inflamed, which[newsweek.com]

  • Pericarditis

    After treatment with diuretics, the peripheral edema improved significantly, but the patient still complained of severe dyspnea on exertion during the hospitalization.[casesjournal.biomedcentral.com] BACKGROUND: Pericardial adhesions can prevent epicardial access and restrict catheter movement during mapping and ablation of ventricular tachycardia (VT).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] , upper abdomen, and left shoulder the pain is less intense when the patient sits up or leans forward and worsens when lying down; it may worsen with a deep breath, like pleurisy[encyclopedia.com]

  • Bronchogenic Carcinoma

    He was in his usual state of health until about one month before admission, at which time he developed increasing dyspnea on exertion.[peir.path.uab.edu] In other instances, symptoms such as pleuritic pain, Pancoast syndrome, or superior vena cava syndrome develop when there is extensive tumour burden within the thorax.[histopathology-india.net] We present an 11-year-old girl with dyspnea on exertion and cough due to a low malignant mucoepidermoid arcinoma of the ronchi.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Q Fever

    pain, chills, confusion, and gastrointestinal symptoms, such as nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea.[en.wikipedia.org] […] flu-like symptoms with abrupt onset of fever, malaise, profuse perspiration, severe headache, muscle pain, joint pain, loss of appetite, upper respiratory problems, dry cough, pleuritic[en.wikipedia.org]

  • Acute Bronchitis

    […] on exertion wheezing, rhonchi, or other signs of obstruction may have accompanying URI symptoms (for example, fever, sore throat, nasal congestion, runny nose) Past medical[clinicaladvisor.com] Pneumonia should be suspected in patients with tachypnea, tachycardia, dyspnea, or lung findings suggestive of pneumonia, and radiography is warranted.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] See separate leaflets called Acute Sinusitis , Tonsillitis , Sore Throat , Laryngitis , Pleurisy , Bronchiolitis , and Pneumonia for the other types of infection shown in[patient.info]

  • Pneumothorax

    […] breath Anxiety, cough and vague presenting symptoms (e.g. general malaise, fatigue) are less commonly observed Signs General appearances may be normal Sweating, tachypnoea, tachycardia[rch.org.au] Pleurisy Many conditions can cause pleurisy. Viral infections are likely the most common cause.[web.archive.org] […] tachypnoea Cyanosis Tracheal deviation Hyper-resonance to percussion Decreased breath sounds In tension pneumothorax: Raised JVP, pulsus paradoxus, marked tracheal deviation, Tachycardia[oxfordmedicaleducation.com]

  • High Output Heart Failure

    Hyperthyroidism causes tachycardia-mediated cardiomyopathy and thus high output heart failure and is often accompanied by atrial fibrillation.[symptoma.com] Tuberculous pleurisy in the patient's history was considered to be the cause of the anastomosis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] A 51-yr-old man presented exertional dyspnea as a consequence of iliocaval fistula combined with paradoxical pulmonary embolism and high-output heart failure.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Asthma

    The tachycardia, hypertension, and neurological symptoms improved.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] and 4%; p 0.05), wheezing (12% vs. 5% and 7%; NS), chest pain (17% vs. 5% and 7%; p 0.05), bronchitis (31% vs. 19% and 13% p 0.01), pneumonia (36% vs. 27% and 9%; NS), and pleurisy[doi.org] A 62-year-old man with asthma presented with a 1-month history of wheezing and exertional dyspnea.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Heart Failure

    We describe the novel use of bilateral cardiac sympathectomy in a woman with end-stage heart failure caused by ventricular tachycardia refractory to standard medical therapy[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] pneumonitis, food/vomitus 147,837 31,772 21.5 20 Hypertension with complications and secondary hypertension 211,243 45,309 21.4 21 Chronic ulcer of skin 50,845 10,823 21.3 22 Pleurisy[web.archive.org] Here we present an 80-year-old Asian woman complaining of progressive exertional dyspnea.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
