580 Possible Causes for Hypoventilation, Tachypnea

  • Pneumonia

    Oral flora and/or gastric contents in the lung space can lead to tachypnea, pulmonary edema, spasm and a diffuse pneumonitis picture on chest X-ray.[] Titrating assisted ventilation rate to the normal range of 35 to 45 mm Hg in pneumonia patients with sepsis may cause hypoventilation.[]

  • Viral Lower Respiratory Infection

    […] days ] presence of rhinitis [ Time Frame: 5 days ] symptoms of pharyngitis [ Time Frame: 5 days ] presence of crepitations [ Time Frame: 5 days ] presence of dyspnea or tachypnea[] […] due to lower airway obstruction Sleep related hypoventilation due to lower airways obstruction Smoker's respiratory syndrome Supraglottic airway obstruction Totally obstructed[] Tachypnea and dyspnea are also signs of lower respiratory involvement.[]

  • Malignant Hyperthermia

    Many features of a typical malignant hyperthermia episode were present, including tachydysrhythmia, tachypnea, and fever in association with metabolic acidosis, hyperCKemia[] Gradually increasing EtCO2 Possible causes: - Hypoventilation - Rising body temperature/malignant hyperthermia - Increased metabolism - Partial airway obstruction - Absorption[] The classic signs of MH include hyperthermia, tachycardia, tachypnea, increased carbon dioxide production, increased oxygen consumption, acidosis, hyperkalaemia, muscle rigidity[]

  • Atelectasis

    […] number of affected alveoli or slowly manifesting atelectasis asymptomatic or minimal symptoms Large number of affected alveoli or rapid onset acute dyspnea , chest pain , tachypnea[] , [[Acute Hypoventilation]] and Chronic Hypoventilation , [[Chronic Hypoventilation]]) Mechanism : diaphragmatic weakness/paralysis with pressure of abdominal contents on[] .  Marked respiratory distress  Dyspnea, tachycardia,  Tachypnea, pleural pain, and central cyanosis  Difficulty breathing in the supine position  Anxious 12.[]

  • Hypokalemia

    Polyuria, nocturia Excessive thirst Fatigue Palpitations Assessment-Physical Findings Hyporeflexia (See Clinical effects of hypokalemia) Weak, irregular pulse Tachycardia, tachypnea[] Other muscular dysfunction includes cramping, fasciculations, paralytic ileus, hypoventilation, hypotension, tetany, and rhabdomyolysis.[] […] vomiting Polyuria, nocturia or polydipsia Altered mental status Signs of Ileus Hypotension Cardia arrest Bradycardia or Tachycardia Premature atrial or ventricular beats Hypoventilation[]

  • Acute Chest Syndrome

    Definition (MSH) Respiratory syndrome characterized by the appearance of a new pulmonary infiltrate on chest x-ray, accompanied by symptoms of fever, cough, chest pain, tachypnea[] Prevention of hypoventilation and treatment of bone pain are important therapeutic goals.[] Tachypnea, wheezing, cough, or increased work of breathing 4. Hypoxemia Management of Acute Chest Syndrome: 1.[]

  • Urea Cycle Disorder

    Infants with a complete enzyme deficiency typically appear normal at birth, but present in the neonatal period as ammonia levels rise with lethargy, seizures, hyper- or hypoventilation[] Infants with a severe urea cycle disorder are normal at birth but rapidly develop cerebral edema and the related signs of lethargy, anorexia, hyper- or hypoventilation, hypothermia[]

  • Neonatal Respiratory Distress Syndrome

    Symptoms manifest shortly after birth and include tachypnea , tachycardia , increased breathing effort, and/or cyanosis .[] The clinical diagnosis may be suspected on the basis of an acute onset of hypotension, acidosis, flaccidity, hypoventilation, and a sudden drop in hematocrit in an otherwise[] There is no evidence from the blood gas values or oximetry data that the infant is hypoventilating (answer c).[]

  • Asphyxia

    Symptoms include cyanosis, nasal flaring, tachypnea and crackles on exam. Treatment includes oxygen supplementation, ventilation and addressing cardiac dysfunction (11).[] […] syndrome , or primary alveolar hypoventilation, a disorder of the autonomic nervous system in which a patient must consciously breathe; although it is often said that persons[] […] with oxytocin Antepartum hemorrhage Severe eclampsia and pre-eclampsia Antepartum and intrapartum anemia [10] Cause [ edit ] Inadequate oxygenation of maternal blood due to hypoventilation[]

  • Bacterial Pneumonia

    Treatment failure will be defined as persistence of fever after 2 days, or tachypnea or diminishing in respiratory rate less than 5 bpm. after 2 days, or signs of severe pneumonia[] Hematogenous Spread (Staphylococcus aureus ) Why is hypoventilation (recent surg., COPD) a risk factor for pneumonia?[] Some of the other symptoms of bacterial pneumonia are yperthermia or hypothermia, tachypnea, tachycardia, central cyanosis, and mental impairment.[]
