8 Possible Causes for Expectoration of Pink and Frothy Sputum

  • Congestive Heart Failure

    Children with systemic onset Juvenile idiopathic arthritis (SOJIA) are known to develop myocarditis and congestive heart failure as a complication of disease process infrequently. Cardiac involvement causing congestive heart failure as a presenting manifestation in SOJIA is rarely described in the literature. The[…][]

  • Organophosphate Insecticide

    Organophosphate insecticide (OPI) self-poisoning is a major medical problem in many countries. Several studies have demonstrated that the base deficit (BD) is a prognostic tool that is correlated with the severity of injury and predicted mortality, particularly in trauma patients. Here, we aimed to investigate the[…][]

  • Exposure to Nerve Gas

    This report describes the rescue activities and the exposure of rescue and hospital personnel from the first unexpected nerve gas terrorist attack using sarin (isopropyl methylphophonofluoridate) in the city of Matsumoto at midnight on June 27, 1994. The details of the emergency activities in the disaster were[…][]

  • High Altitude Pulmonary Edema

    Hypoxia-induced plasma levels of VEGF and sFlt-1 are responsible for increased vascular permeability occurred in both brain and pulmonary edema. Currently, it remains unclear the exact roles of VEGF and sFlt-1 in High Altitude Pulmonary Edema (HAPE) pathogenesis. In this study, plasma levels of VEGF and sFlt-1 from 10[…][]

  • Aspiration Pneumonia

    Orthognathic surgery including maxillary osteotomy, mandibular osteotomy, and genioplasty is a reliable treatment strategy for jaw deformity. However, there are some complications associated with these surgeries, including neurovascular damage and abnormal bleeding. The authors present here a patient of aspiration[…][]

  • Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome

    Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome (ARDS) was first recognized during the 1960s. It is a distinct type of hypoxemic respiratory failure characterized by acute abnormality of both lungs. Extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) is being increasingly used for patients with severe ARDS refractory to otherwise[…][]

  • Pulmonary Edema

    Pulmonary edema is fluid accumulation in the tissue and air spaces of the lungs . [1] It leads to impaired gas exchange and may cause respiratory failure . It is due to either failure of the left ventricle of the heart to remove blood adequately from the pulmonary circulation (cardiogenic pulmonary edema), or an[…][]

  • Inhalation Burn

    We report a rare case of long segmental laryngotracheal stenosis following inhalation burn injury. The patient presented 2 months after his injury with progressive stridor and dyspnea necessitating tracheostomy. A computed tomographic scan of the neck revealed stenosis extending from the vocal cords to the top[…][]
