114 Possible Causes for Hyperresonance, Pneumothorax

  • Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease

    Tension pneumothorax in patients with COPD is a rare and often unexpected cause of acute vital threat.[] […] cough or expectoration Breathing may be assisted by pursed lips and use of accessory respiratory muscles; patients may adopt the tripod sitting position The chest may be hyperresonant[] In this case, air trapping resulting from the Valsalva maneuver under inadequate pain control may be the mechanism for fatal tension pneumothorax during colonoscopy.[]

  • Asthma

    Overall, three cases of pneumothorax and two cases of pneumorrhachis were reported.[] Pneumomediastinum-bilateral pneumothorax in an intubated patient in status asthmaticus.[] Complications There are several conditions that can complicate asthma; they include 1,6,16 : atelectasis pneumonia mucoid impaction of the airways pneumothorax pneumomediastinum[]

  • Pneumothorax

    Other symptoms of pneumothorax are cough, anxiety and general feeling of malaise. Hypoxia and hypotension are characteristic of tension pneumothorax.[] […] coughing can also cause Presentation Symptoms sudden-onset, unilateral, pleuritic chest pain dyspnea acute respiratory distress Physical exam decreased or absent breath sounds hyperresonance[] Patients with pneumothorax present with sudden-onset dyspnea , ipsilateral chest pain , diminished breath sounds, and hyperresonant percussion on the affected side.[]

  • Spontaneous Pneumothorax

    It may occur as a primary spontaneous pneumothorax (PSP) or secondary spontaneous pneumothorax (SSP) due to different etiologies.[] There will be decreased breath sounds on the affected side and hyperresonance to percussion. What is the most likely cause for a spontaneous pneumothorax?[] […] appearances may be normal Sweating, tachypnoea, tachycardia (most common finding) Splinting of the chest wall to relieve pleuritic pain Decreased or absent breath sounds Hyperresonance[]

  • Traumatic Pneumothorax

    The current recommendation is observation in stable patients with 15% pneumothorax and tube thoracostomy in patients with 15% pneumothorax.[] Breath sounds may be diminished and the affected hemithorax hyperresonant to percussion—mainly with larger pneumothoraces.[] […] on lung in COPD or Congenital (present from birth -Dyspnea (labored breathing) -Dry hacking cough -Asymmetric chest movement -Diminished or absent BS over affected side -Hyperresonance[]

  • Catamenial Pneumothorax

    […] catamenial pneumothorax and cannot fully explain the recurrent and cyclical episodes of pneumothorax.[] Physical examination was remarkable for decreased breath sounds and hyperresonance over the right hemithorax. Her labs were unremarkable.[] Physical findings classically consist of absent tactile fremitus, hyperresonance to percussion, and decreased breath sounds on the affected side.[]

  • Iatrogenic Pneumothorax

    INTRODUCTION: Pneumothorax is a potentially serious complication of electromyography (EMG). Data on the frequency of pneumothorax after EMG are lacking.[] Clinical signs of tension pneumothorax include tracheal deviation, hyperresonance, and hypotension.[] […] pain that may radiate to neck, back, and shoulder hemodynamic instability tachycardia tachypnea dyspnea hypoxemia ipsilateral decreased or absent breath sounds ipsilateral hyperresonance[]

  • Silicosis

    The occurrence of pneumothorax in a patient with silicosis is a rare event, but it may be fatal. The rate of pneumothorax recurrence in silicosis is usually low.[] Occurrence of pneumothorax in silicosis is rare and when it occurs, pneumothorax is usually unilateral.[] BACKGROUND: Few studies have focused on the management of secondary spontaneous pneumothorax (SSP) as a complication of pneumoconiosis.[]

  • Artificial Pneumothorax

    In addition, the treating group received artificial pneumothorax to enhance the treatment efficacy.[] Kholtsman (1886-1941) was alleged to have used the so-called 'aristocratic therapy' of artificial pneumothorax to kill prominent Bolsheviks.[] Complications of the artificial pneumothorax were also summarized.[]

  • Pleurisy

    A lung disease or acute lung injury can cause a pneumothorax. Some lung procedures also can cause a pneumothorax.[] […] cases Pneumonia Anorexia, cough, dyspnea, fatigue, myalgia Crackles, egophony, fremitus Infiltrate Typically not indicated Pneumothorax Sudden pain and dyspnea Tachycardia, hyperresonance[] Surgery or a chest injury also may cause a pneumothorax. You can develop a pneumothorax without having a recognized lung disease or chest injury.[]
