1,045 Possible Causes for Fever, Hypoxia, Pneumothorax

  • Atelectasis

    OBJECTIVE: Role of the atelectasis (hypoxia) in the respiratory system of the live and exited newborn (250 up to 3000 g. of body weight), which has died due to different causes[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] When there is no apparent cause, the condition is known as spontaneous pneumothorax.[nm.org] Using chi 2 analysis, no association could be found between fever and amount of atelectasis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Pulmonary Embolism

    Hypoxia is an independent predictor of both right ventricular dysfunction and 30-day mortality in these patients.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The major utility of the chest film is in finding other causes of the patient’s symptoms (i.e. an infiltrate in pneumonia or absent lung markings in pneumothorax).[clinicaladvisor.com] High grade fever is a rare presentation of thromboembolic phenomenon. A middle aged woman presented with high grade fevers.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Staphylococcal Pneumonia

    The most common is a bad environment, birth trauma, fetal hypoxia, bad habits, weak immune system, acquired heart disease and heart failure, recurrent bronchitis, diabetes[respiratory.vsebolezni.com] The delayed and subacute/chronic nature of the tension pneumothorax is unusual.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Fever and signs of pleural effusion and respiratory distress were common in primary disease while fever and a toxic appearance were frequent with disseminated illness.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Pneumocystis Carinii Pneumonia

    […] virus infection who received successful treatment of minimally symptomatic Pneumocystis carinii pneumonia and who subsequently developed diffuse pulmonary infiltrates and hypoxia[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The need for mechanical ventilation and/or development of a pneumothorax (OR, 20.9; 95% CI, 1.9-227.2; 0.01) and delayed ICU admission (OR, 9.7; 95% CI, 2.2-42.1; 0.002) were[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The patient presented with a fever of unknown origin.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Bronchiectasis

    Surgery is indicated in unsuccessful medical treatment and complications of bronchiectasis e.g. haemoptysis, lung abscess, lung masses and pneumothorax.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Often times, patients will also present with muscular dysfunction due to inflammation, gas exchange abnormalities, inactivity, malnutrition, hypoxia and medications [9] .[physio-pedia.com] A 21-year-old woman presented to our hospital with a 9-day history of productive cough and fever. Bronchiectasis after Mycoplasma pneumoniae pneumonia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Pulmonary Alveolar Proteinosis

    Active pleural drainage of the pneumothorax was unsuccessful and after two months, surgical suture of the lung was performed under general anaesthesia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Patients may suffer from progressive dyspnea and cough that at times is accompanied by worsening hypoxia and its course can vary from progressive deterioration to spontaneous[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Common presenting features include dyspnea, cough, low-grade fever, inspiratory crackles, and digital clubbing.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome

    Acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) is a syndrome of noncardiogenic pulmonary edema and hypoxia that accompanies up to 30% of deaths in pediatric intensive care units[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Thus, when refractory pneumothorax in a patient with severe pulmonary dysfunction fails to improve through routine therapy, the treatment of pneumothorax by VATS based on[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] A 54-year-old woman presented with fever, hypotension, and pancytopenia, with peripheral smear diagnostic of ehrlichiosis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Asthma

    Vasoconstriction due to alveolar hypoxia also contributes to this mismatch. Vasoconstriction is also considered an adaptive response to ventilation/perfusion mismatch.[emedicine.medscape.com] Overall, three cases of pneumothorax and two cases of pneumorrhachis were reported.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Acetaminophen is a widely used medication for the treatment of pain and fever in children and pregnant women.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Pneumococcal Pneumonia

    Other common symptoms include Pleuritic chest pain Cough productive of mucopurulent Rusty sputum Dyspnea Tachypnea or tachycardia Hypoxia Malaise or weakness Nausea, vomiting[cdc.gov] […] production of coagulase Produces its pathologic reaction in the conducting airways Imaging Rapid spread through the lungs Empyema, especially in children No air bronchogram Pneumothorax[learningradiology.com] Common symptoms of pneumococcal pneumonia include fever and chills, cough, hyperventilation, difficulty breathing and chest pain.[symptoma.com]

  • Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease

    Presence of chronic hypoxia or cor pulmonale.[patient.info] Tension pneumothorax in patients with COPD is a rare and often unexpected cause of acute vital threat.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] We report herein a patient with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease who developed fever with worsening of respiratory symptoms and severe hypoxemia requiring ventilatory[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
