  • Asthma

    His arterial blood gas revealed type 1 respiratory failure (PaO2 8 kPa or 60 mm Hg with normal or low PaCO2) with a compensated lactic acidosis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] A physical examination revealed a thin, anxious, jittery, hypertensive, and tachycardic adolescent with hyperreflexia and dysmetria.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] After significant doses of beta-agonist, she developed a significant lactic acidosis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Milk-Alkali Syndrome

    The association with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and respiratory acidosis may play a precipitating role.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] A man with severe hypercalcemia (22 mg/dl) secondary to ingestion of a calcium carbonate antacid (Tums) was admitted with obtundation and hyperreflexia, which disappeared[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Blood gases and chemistries returned with evidence of anion gap metabolic acidosis with compensatory respiratory response. The blood cultures showed gram positive cocci.[symbiosisonlinepublishing.com]

  • Nemaline Myopathy 2

    Upon admission to ICU, hypotension and respiratory acidosis were detected and orotracheal intubation and mechanical ventilation initiated.[jnnp.bmj.com] The patient presented mildly symmetrical hyperreflexia with positive Rossolimo signs. The patient underwent a muscle biopsy in left biceps brachii.[journals.lww.com]

  • Subcutaneous Emphysema

    All were consistent with respiratory acidosis. The operation ended in 30 minutes of reaching the peak ETCO2.[apicareonline.com] On physical examination, he had mild hyperreflexia and decreased pinprick sensation within the T5-T8 dermatomes.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Arterial blood gas upon admission showed hypoxia with decompensated respiratory acidosis. An urgent chest X-ray showed a large right-sided pneumothorax.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
