  • 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[emedicine.medscape.com]

  • Pneumonia

    Complications Maternal complications of pneumonia include respiratory failure, pulmonary edema, ARDS and hypoxemia.[clinicaladvisor.com] Additional tests that may be helpful include pulse oximetry to indicate hypoxemia even in a well appearing pregnant woman.[clinicaladvisor.com] Continuous pulse oximetry may be useful along with continuous fetal monitoring for viable fetuses when preterm labor is apparent or maternal hypoxemia has not been corrected[clinicaladvisor.com]

  • Right to Left Shunt

    It cannot be excluded that ventilation/perfusion mismatch participated to hypoxemia.[bmccardiovascdisord.biomedcentral.com] On this occasion, she was admitted for exertional dyspnea and hypoxemia.[revespcardiol.org] A rare cause of dyspnea and arterial hypoxemia. Chest 1997 ; 112 : 1681 –2 3 Fawcett E, Blachford JV.[academic.oup.com]

  • Obesity Hypoventilation Syndrome

    While healthy people can tolerate the lower arterial oxygen tension at this pressure, those with respiratory disease may develop severe hypoxemia.[consultant360.com] […] to Carbon Dioxide Mechanical Impedance to Breathing Clinical Hypercapnia (see Hypercapnia , [[Hypercapnia]]) Hypoxemia (see Hypoxemia , [[Hypoxemia]]) Obstructive Sleep Apnea[mdnxs.com] Pickwickian syndrome , or obesity hypoventilation syndrome (OHS) , comprises the triad of obesity (BMI 30 kg/m2), daytime hypoventilation (awake hypercapnia and hypoxemia)[radiopaedia.org]

  • Kyphoscoliosis

    Hypoxemia is common. Therapy Milwaukee brace controls moderate deformities.[meddean.luc.edu] The majority of the patients (n 28) who had abnormal PAP had hypoxemia (PaO 2 /FiO 2 300) [ 9 ].[link.springer.com] Commonly the other listed options are needed to correct atelectasis or hypoxemia and to help remove retained secretions.[quizlet.com]

  • Pulmonary Fibrosis

    Generally, oxygen therapy can help only people with very low blood-oxygen levels (hypoxemia).[lung.ca] Because the lungs don't take in oxygen as well, low blood oxygen levels ( hypoxemia ) can develop. Lack of oxygen can affect the entire body.[chealth.canoe.com]

  • Bronchiectasis

    […] pneumothorax Recurrent hemoptysis not controlled by embolization Other factors to consider: Hypercarbia (PaCO 2 45 mmHg) Rapidly progressive decline in lung function Resting hypoxemia[oxfordjournals.org] Supplemental oxygen is administered for hypoxemia.[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com] […] bronchiectasis found that higher mortality was associated with advanced age, poor functional status, more severe disease based on radiographic findings, and evidence of hypoxemia[emedicine.medscape.com]

  • Respiratory Muscle Paralysis

    Abstract Background Oxygenation is impaired in almost all subjects during anesthesia, and hypoxemia for shorter or longer periods is a common finding.[link.springer.com] Decision to initiate assisted ventilation Do not wait for ABGto show hypoxemia or hypercapnia. [myasthenia.org] Acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) is a lethal syndrome characterized by hypoxemia, bilateral infiltrates and diffuse alveolar damage.(1) Patients presenting with[sccm.org]

  • Pulmonary Infarction

    -Increased HR: due to hypoxemia/fear/pain Tachycardia: due to increased rate of lung inflation -Systemic hypotension: reduced cardiac return and decrease in left ventricular[quizlet.com] Cyanosis and hypoxemia are not prominent features of pulmonary embolism.[emedicine.medscape.com] Thrombolysis was not considered because of the long duration of symptoms and the absence of hypotension, hypoxemia, and substantial right-ventricular dysfunction.[rc.rcjournal.com]

  • Shock

    For example, shock may lead to hypoxemia (a lack of oxygen in arterial blood) or cardiac and/or respiratory arrest . [5] One of the key dangers of shock is that it progresses[en.wikipedia.org]
