1,290 Possible Causes for Fever, Pneumothorax, Tachycardia

  • Atelectasis

    When there is no apparent cause, the condition is known as spontaneous pneumothorax.[nm.org] Hypotension, tachycardia, fever, and shock may also occur.

  • Pulmonary Embolism

    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] Pulmonary embolism (PE) represents a clinical challenge for clinicians because of nonspecific presentations, including dyspnea, chest pain, and tachycardia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] High grade fever is a rare presentation of thromboembolic phenomenon.

    The patient developed a large left-sided iatrogenic pneumothorax, which recurred and failed to resolve despite the successful insertion of both Seldinger and surgical chest[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Post-operative fever is common following emergency surgery.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Unlike the common PLCH cases, this PLCH case has cervical lymph node involvement and right pneumothorax.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Esophageal Perforation

    Chest radiography and computed tomography (CT) revealed a massive left pleural effusion and left tension pneumothorax.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Pertinent physical examination findings: CV: S1, S2, tachycardia, regular rhythm Lungs: Decreased breath sounds R base Abdomen: Soft NT, ND, absent guarding and rebound EKG[emdocs.net] On physical examination, general weakness, chest pain, odynophagia, and a fever up to 38.9 C were found.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Sinus Tachycardia

    The low voltage in the left lateral leads was ascribed to pneumothorax of the left lung.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] including medications/substances (such as anti-cholinergic, beta-blocker withdrawal, caffeine, and alcohol) or medical conditions (such as panic attacks, pulmonary embolism, fever[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Pulmonary etiologies may include tension pneumothorax, pulmonary edema, or pulmonary embolus (including blood, air, fat, etc).[openanesthesia.org]

  • Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome

    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] On arrival to the emergency department (ED) the patient was noted to be febrile with tachycardia, tachypnea, and hypoxia and was intubated for respiratory failure.[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]

  • Acute Bronchitis

    A chest x-ray is often done to check for pneumonia or pneumothorax.[msdmanuals.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] When bronchitis is severe, fever may be slightly higher at 101 to 102 F (38 to 39 C) and may last for 3 to 5 days, but higher fevers are unusual unless bronchitis is caused[merckmanuals.com]
