60 Possible Causes for Gagging, Pharyngeal Edema

  • Smoke Inhalation Injury

    Airway edema increases over 12-18 hours after injury and early recognition of airway deterioration from mild pharyngeal edema to complete airway obstruction is important.9[ispub.com] Endotracheal intubation is indicated in patients who have evidence of upper airway edema, decreased mental status, and signs of deteriorating respiratory status.[ispub.com]

  • Acid Ingestion

    Vomiting Retching (gagging) Abdominal pain Low-grade fever Irritability Persistent drooling Difficulty breathing if the battery is blocking the airway Rash from nickel metal[emedicinehealth.com] Respiratory distress and stridor indicate pharyngeal or laryngotracheal injuries Place oral/nasal airway early in management prior to rapid worsening of airway edema Consider[mhmedical.com]

  • Stomatitis

  • Sodium Hypochlorite Poisoning

    Each time I jumped up gagging and coughing with my throat burning they rinsed me with water still painful I continued to finish this and get it over with.[dentalfearcentral.org] Symptoms of sodium hypochlorite poisoning may include: Burning, red eyes Chest pain Coma Coughing (from the fumes) Delirium Gagging sensation Low blood pressure Pain in the[medlineplus.gov] Symptoms of fume exposure include coughing, mouth and throat pain, a gagging sensation, chest pain and lower heartbeat.[healthfully.com]

  • Laryngeal Obstruction

    Cannot be used in awake patients, as it causes them to gag and potentially vomit.[learnpicu.com] If tongue swelling or pharyngeal soft tissue edema precludes visualization of the vocal cords or placement of an endotracheal tube, emergency tracheostomy should be performed[clinicaladvisor.com] For airway edema in the PICU, often dexamethasone 0.25-0.5 mg/kg IV q6 hrs X 4 doses.[learnpicu.com]

  • Acute Epiglottitis

    Indirect laryngoscopy should be done with caution since patient gagging may worsen or participate catastrophic airway obstruction.[waent.org] edema and thereby reduce the obstruction.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] In our case, oral local anesthetic spray did not completely abolish gag reflexes and pain.[joacp.org]

  • Zenker Diverticulum

    Irregularity of the lining of the diverticulum, or of the pharyngeal or esophageal wall raises the possibility of tumor arising in the diverticulum itself.[wjso.biomedcentral.com] Surrounding edema can prevent radiological and endoscopic diagnosis in patients as happened in our patient and small invasive carcinoma was detected only at histopathologic[wjso.biomedcentral.com]
