    depression Inability to ventilate adequately, due to a neuromuscular disease or paralysis (eg, myasthenia gravis, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis [ALS], Guillain-Barré syndrome[] Ability to reverse the benzodiazepine-induced respiratory depression is less predictable.[] This failure in ventilation may result from depression of the central respiratory center by one or another of the following: Central nervous system disease or drug-induced respiratory[]

  • Haddad Syndrome

    Recent work has associated polyalanine repeats within the PHOX2B gene on chromosome 4p12 with central congenital hypoventilation syndrome, whereas PHOX2B knockout mice develop[] Congenital central hypoventilation syndrome (CCHS) is an uncommon cause of apnea in the newborn characterized by the occurrence of apnea predominantly during sleep.[] Congenital Central Hypoventilation syndrome and Hirschsprung’s disease in half sibs.

  • Anti-NMDA Receptor Encephalitis

    On day 1 of admission to our center, she developed hypoventilation requiring mechanical support.[] The phenotype resembles that of the adults, although dysautonomia and hypoventilation are less frequent or severe in children. Ann Neurol 2009;66:11-18.[] Keywords: NMDA, receptor, autoimmune, synapse, paraneoplastic, schizophrenia, paraneoplastic disorder, neurologic symptoms, hyperthermia, hypoventilation, hypersexuality,[]

  • Acute Hyperventilation

    […] between normo- and hyperventilation (mean value: 1.2 ppm) than between normo- and hypoventilation (mean value: 0.4 ppm).[] The contrary of hyperventilation is hypoventilation.[] A wide gradient that would be evident in a patient with acute alveolar hyperventilation superimposed on chronic ventilatory failure, is not normally present in hypoventilation[]

  • Hyperventilation

    Respiratory dysfunction, particularly central hypoventilation, is common in anti-N-methyl D-aspartate (NMDA) receptor encephalitis.[] CONCLUSIONS: Moderate hyperventilation, when compared with moderate hypoventilation, in patients with cardiovascular disease undergoing intravenous anesthesia increased net[] Hypoventilation after the provocation test occurred in only 5 subjects.[]

  • Sleep Apnea

    (OPTION)The use of zolpidem and triazolam may be considered for the treatment of primary CSAS only if the patient does not have underlying risk factors for respiratory depression[] This report demonstrates the efficacy of servo-ventilation in the treatment of central sleep apnea syndrome associated with alveolar hypoventilation in a CM-I patient with[] G47.35 Congenital central alveolar hypoventilation syndrome G47.36 Sleep related hypoventilation in conditions classified elsewhere G47.37 Central sleep apnea in conditions[]

  • Extrapulmonary Alveolar Hypoventilation

    When hypoventilation occurs during the day (in addition to nocturnal sleep), the condition is referred to as idiopathic (primary) alveolar hypoventilation.[] Congenital central hypoventilation syndrome Hypoventilation may be caused by depression of the central respiratory drive.[] Nocturnal hypoventilation may be an under diagnosed condition in chronic respiratory failure.[]
