574 Possible Causes for Giddiness and Lightheadedness, Hypocapnia, Recurrent Pneumonia due to Aspiration

  • Hyperventilation

    […] or giddiness, profuse perspiration, and tingling sensations in the fingertips, face, or toes.[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com] In this case, we found capnography to be a very useful aid to monitor respiration in this patient and also to treat the hypocapnia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] examined whether slower pulmonary O 2 uptake (V O 2p ) kinetics in hypoxia is a consequence of: a) hypoxia alone (lowered arterial O 2 pressure), b) hyperventilation-induced hypocapnia[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Acute Hyperventilation

    Abstract Acute hypocapnia decreases CBF, increases hemoglobin affinity for oxygen and causes cerebral tissue hypoxia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] They will also be taught in a practical way to recognize early clinical signs and symptoms of hypocapnia.[clinicaltrials.gov] Granholm L, Siesjö BK (1969) The effects of hypercapnia and hypocapnia upon cerebrospinal fluid lactate and pyruvate concentrations and upon the lactate, pyruvate, ATP, ADP[link.springer.com]

  • Psychogenic Hyperventilation

    […] or giddiness, profuse perspiration, and tingling sensations in the fingertips, face, or toes.[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com] […] high lactates are usually associated with acidosis and an increased risk of poor outcome, in patients with psychogenic hyperventilation, high lactates are associated with hypocapnia[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] hyperventilation syndrome a complex of symptoms that accompany hypocapnia caused by hyperventilation, including palpitation, a feeling of shortness of breath or air hunger, lightheadedness[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com]

  • Anxiety Disorder

    Anxiety can be an appropriate response to stressful situations but is considered a pathologic disorder when it is disabling and difficult to control. Generalized anxiety disorder (GAD) is the most common anxiety disorder seen in primary care, affecting approximately 3% of adults in the United States (1, 2). This[…][doi.org]

  • Hypoxia

    […] associated with periodic breathing owing to alternating respiratory stimulation by hypoxia and subsequent apneas or hypopneas due to inhibition by hyperventilation‐induced hypocapnia[doi.org] Arterial blood gas (ABG) Blood gas monitoring is used to assess acid-base status and to avoid hyperoxia and hypoxia as well as hypercapnia and hypocapnia.[emedicine.medscape.com]

  • Liver Failure

    The goals of respiratory care are similar to those in other critical illnesses; hyperventilation to induce hypocapnia may be used for emergent control of intracranial hypertension[nejm.org]

    In both groups clear conditioning occurred, but there was no effect of hypocapnia. Results are critically discussed.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Respiratory alkalosis Synonym Hypocapnia Related conditions Metabolic alkalosis Metabolic acidosis Respiratory acidosis 1.[clinicaladvisor.com] Hypocapnia. N Engl J Med. 2002 Jul 4;347(1):43-53.[us.bestpractice.bmj.com]

  • Islet Cell Tumor

    We report a case of an elderly gentleman with renal cell carcinoma presenting with the rare entity of non-islet cell tumor hypoglycemia (NICTH). Non-islet cell tumor hypoglycemia syndrome is caused by the tumor producing insulin-like growth factor II, causing hypoglycemia. The syndrome is most commonly associated with[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

    Other common symptoms of drunkenness, such as lightheadedness, giddiness, blurred vision and dilated pupils, might also appear.[canadasafetycouncil.org]
