42 Possible Causes for Hiccup, Pneumothorax on Chest X-Ray

  • Pneumonia

    Ventilator-associated pneumonia (VAP) is frequent in Intensive Care Unit (ICU) patients. In the specific case of patients treated with Veno-Arterial Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation Support (VA-ECMO), VAP treatment failures (VAP-TF) have been incompletely investigated. To investigate the risk factors of[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Myocardial Infarction

    Hiccups, a benign and self-limited condition, can become persistent or intractable with overlooked underlying etiology.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Following thrombectomy, balloon angioplasty, and stent, the patient recovered well without additional episodes of hiccups.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] CASE REPORT We report a case of intractable hiccups in a 51-year-old male with cocaine related myocardial infarction (MI) before and after stent placement.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Pneumothorax

    Diagnosis of pneumothorax A chest x-ray is used to diagnose a pneumothorax, though a CT scan is sometimes used.[healthdirect.gov.au] Some spontaneous pneumothoraces are associated with forced inspiratory manoeuvres such as hiccuping or the completion of functional tests of total lung capacity or peak inspiratory[ukdmc.org] A chest x-ray should be ordered early in the evaluation of a patient with a suspected pneumothorax.[cdemcurriculum.com]

  • Pericarditis

    In cases where symptoms are present, they may include: chest pain light-headedness cough shortness of breath hiccups Possible causes of chronic effusive pericarditis include[hse.ie]

  • Pulmonary Infarction

    These tests are as follows: Chest X-ray (may show other causes for shortness of breath like heart failure or a pneumothorax ) Electrocardiogram (ECC, EKG - tachycardia and[emedicinehealth.com] […] of blood) severe dyspnea (shortness of breath) fever chest pain ( most typically, a pleurisy -like pain (chest pain that occurs when drawing a breath) (rarely) persistent hiccups[verywell.com]

  • Perforated Viscus

    […] and surgical emphysema - In this Chest X-Ray we can identify a left sided pneumothorax - there is absence of lung markings in the periphery and we can also see a shadow which[meducation.net] Plain radiograph Chest radiograph An erect chest x-ray is probably the most sensitive plain radiograph for the detection of free intraperitoneal gas.[radiopaedia.org] X-ray, which is performed for other reasons, e.g. suspicion for pneumonia, suspicion for pneumothorax, or other intra-thoracic abnormalities.[signavitae.com]

  • Thoracentesis

    Risks may include any of the following: Bleeding Infection Pneumothorax Respiratory distress A chest x-ray is commonly done after the procedure to detect possible complications[medlineplus.gov] .  Coagulation disorder  Active skin infection  Atelectasis  Only one functioning lung  Emphysema  Severe cough or hiccups  6.  Explain the purpose, risks/benefits[slideshare.net] Postprocedurally, studies indicate that routine chest X-ray is unwarranted, because bedside ultrasound can identify pneumothorax.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Diaphragmatic Rupture

    Chest X-ray showed a left diaphragmatic elevation.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Chest x-ray demonstrating a left-sided cavity with air-fluid level or loculated pneumothorax requires further investigation in patients with a past history of multi-trauma[rc.rcjournal.com] The systematic review of literature confirmed chest x ray findings of bowel loops in the left hemithorax [ 12 , 13 ], abundant hydropneumothorax [ 21 ], elevation of the left[wjes.biomedcentral.com]

  • Iatrogenic Pneumothorax

    After invasive procedures such as this, a chest X-ray should be requested, specifically to check for a pneumothorax.[radiologymasterclass.co.uk] Some spontaneous pneumothoraces are associated with forced inspiratory manoeuvres such as hiccuping or the completion of functional tests of total lung capacity or peak inspiratory[ukdmc.org] Chest X-ray revealed an 5-mm collapse of the right lung apex.[dovepress.com]

  • Acute Mediastinitis

    Imaging By chest X-ray (CXR); may be normal early, followed by evidence of mediastinal and subcutaneous air.[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com] Management Aggressive and early with antibiotics; fluid resuscitation; chest tubes for pneumothorax or effusions; thoracotomy and surgical repair.[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com]
