1,863 Possible Causes for Hypoxemia

  • Pneumonia

    Hypoxemia was significantly higher in patients with S. pneumoniae (14/32, p 0.008) than those with MP (5/39).[] One week after admission, she developed fever, dyspnea, hypoxemia, tachycardia, and increased serum C-reactive protein level.[] Complications Maternal complications of pneumonia include respiratory failure, pulmonary edema, ARDS and hypoxemia.[]

  • Viral Lower Respiratory Infection

    This, along with absence of tachypnea and hypoxemia, distinguishes tracheobronchitis from viral or atypical pneumonia.[] Both are typically characterized by diffuse or multifocal crackles or wheezes accompanied by fever, tachypnea, and hypoxemia.[] Once a child presents with symptoms of LRTI—fever, cough, reduced energy or oral intake, and some degree of respiratory distress and/or hypoxemia—the first step toward diagnosis[]

  • Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis

    The so-called acute exacerbation of IPF (AE-IPF) may lead to severe hypoxemia requiring mechanical ventilation in the intensive care unit (ICU).[] Often the immediate cause is respiratory failure due to hypoxemia, right-heart failure, a heart attack, blood clot (embolism) in the lungs, stroke, or lung infection brought[] This is referred to as hypoxemia or hypoxia. We measure your blood oxygen level in two ways.[]

  • Pharyngitis

    However, hypoxemia, hypotension and\or significant tachypnea are not and suggests another process may be present.[]

  • Upper Respiratory Infection

    Laryngotracheitis Hospitalization may be necessary in patients with laryngotracheitis, especially in infants and young children who have hypoxemia, volume depletion, a risk[]

  • Influenza

    Patients appear severely ill, with productive bloody cough, hypoxemia, an elevated white blood cell (WBC) count, and multiple cavitary infiltrates on chest radiography. [33[]

  • Acute Bronchitis

    Supplemental oxygen is used to treat hypoxemia (too little oxygen in the blood) and has been shown to reduce mortality in chronic bronchitis patients.[] […] inflammation of the small airways — asthma or bronchiolitis — which typically presents as progressive cough accompanied by wheezing, tachypnea, respiratory distress, and hypoxemia[] Supplemental oxygen is prescribed for patients with low arterial blood-oxygen levels (hypoxemia), and antibiotics are often given for significant acute exacerbations.[]

  • Obesity Hypoventilation Syndrome

    Thus, in obese patients treated with noninvasive positive pressure ventilation, a paradoxical worsening of hypoxemia may reveal the existence of a patent foramen ovale.[] While healthy people can tolerate the lower arterial oxygen tension at this pressure, those with respiratory disease may develop severe hypoxemia.[] […] to Carbon Dioxide Mechanical Impedance to Breathing Clinical Hypercapnia (see Hypercapnia , [[Hypercapnia]]) Hypoxemia (see Hypoxemia , [[Hypoxemia]]) Obstructive Sleep Apnea[]

  • Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome

    In the case of refractory hypoxemia, the usual adjunctive therapeutics can be used: NO, prone position, HFO ventilation, almitrine infusion.[] This leads to reduced diffusing capacity, shortness of breath and hypoxemia.[] By expert consensus, ARDS is defined by three categories based on the degrees of hypoxemia ( Table 322-2 ).[]

  • Hepatopulmonary Syndrome

    Given that management of hypoxemia in HPS drastically differs from that of hypoxemia due to PAVMs, this case demonstrates the importance of evaluating HHT patients for HPS[] He had full regression of hypoxemia at 3 months after a transcatheter shunt closure.[] Dyspnea and hypoxemia are worse in the upright position (which is called platypnea and orthodeoxia , respectively).[]
