1,586 Possible Causes for Hypoxemia

  • Asthma

    Although the wheezing symptoms disappeared after systemic corticosteroid therapy, the exertional dyspnea and hypoxemia did not improve.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Correction of the hypoxemia is one of the first priorities in setting the ventilator [ 64 ].[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] People who have COPD and continue to smoke, have a rapid decline in FEV1, who develop severe hypoxemia, develop right-sided heart failure and/or have poor ability to do daily[medicinenet.com]

  • Pulmonary Emphysema

    This V/Q mismatch results in rapid circulation in a poorly ventilated lung, leading to hypoxemia and polycythemia.[emedicine.com] In these cases the use of oxygen may be necessary even for those, who not have hypoxemia at sea level.[tabletsmanual.com] Interventions include: smoking cessation oxygen therapy (in chronic hypoxemia) symptom and exacerbation control short and long-acting beta-2 agonists inhaled anticholinergics[radiopaedia.org]

  • Pneumonia

    Although no single finding reliably differentiates pneumonia from other causes of childhood respiratory illness, hypoxemia and increased work of breathing are more important[doi.org] CASE REPORT We describe the case of a 63-year-old woman who presented with dyspnea, cough, and significant hypoxemia requiring high-flow oxygen supplement with bilateral lung[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] She was emergently admitted to our hospital due to the worsening exertional dyspnea and severe hypoxemia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Congestive Heart Failure

    These SRDB cause arousals, hypoxemia-reoxygenation, hypercapnia-hypocapnia, and changes in intrathoracic pressure.[web.archive.org] Ratzlaff, Harish Ramakrishna, Gabriele Via and Klaus Torp, Can Lung Ultrasound Be the First-Line Tool for Evaluation of Intraoperative Hypoxemia?[doi.org] It is important to close a patent foramen before LVAD support because significant right-to-left shunting may occur postoperatively, leading to severe hypoxemia under certain[doi.org]

  • Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome

    Refractory hypoxemia, defined as Pa O 2 less than 60 mm Hg on Fi O 2 of 1.0, occurred in 138 (21%) patients.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] A 30 year-old Hispanic man with no significant previous medical history presented with refractory hypoxemia after flu-like symptoms.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Nitric oxide does not reduce mortality in adults or children with acute respiratory distress syndrome, regardless of the degree of hypoxemia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Pulmonary Infarction

    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] Despite the low sensitivity of these signs, the chest radiograph remains an important first step in the diagnosis of pulmonary embolism, primarily to exclude other causes of hypoxemia[med-ed.virginia.edu] Etiology DVT (most common) septic embolism from right-heart endocarditis fat embolism amniotic fluid embolism Pathophysiology occlusion of the pulmonary vasculature results in hypoxemia[medbullets.com]

  • Malignant Angioendotheliomatosis

    We describe a case of intravascular lymphomatosis resulting in pulmonary hypertension, hypoxemia, and dyspnea.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Martusewicz-Boros M, Wiatr E, Radzikowska E, et al: Pulmonary intravascular large B-cell lymphoma as a cause of severe hypoxemia.[doi.org] Probably different stimuli (eg, bacteria, viruses, cryptoproteins) can lead to the vessels occlusion, hypoxemia, and subsequently endothelial cell proliferation.[emedicine.medscape.com]

  • Hepatopulmonary Syndrome

    Hepatopulmonary syndrome is characterized by advanced liver disease, hypoxemia, and intrapulmonary shunting.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] His hypoxemia improved slowly following liver transplantation, requiring tracheostomy and prolonged ventilator dependence.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] On the basis of the most commonly applied definition in 27 identified studies, we objectively defined severe postoperative hypoxemia as hypoxemia requiring a 100% fraction[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Pulmonary Fibrosis

    In acute conditions, oxygen is given to the patient to reduce hypoxemia and to reverse cyanosis.[symptoma.com] He developed dyspnea after 65 days and presented with hypoxemia after 68 days.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] As a result of atelectasis, gas distribution becomes nonuniform, resulting in ventilation-perfusion mismatch and hypoxemia.[web.archive.org]

  • Respiratory Bronchiolitis Interstitial Lung Disease

    […] in patients with interstitial lung disease is V/Q mismatch, with DLCO defect contributing to hypoxemia with activity increased expiratory flow rates due to increased radial[medbullets.com] With disease progression, chronic hypoxemia, cyanosis, and finger clubbing occur.[pediatrics.aappublications.org] -Normal -Hypoxemia -Alkalosis -CO2 retention at end stages of disease What is a potential problem with using oxygen in patients with hypercapnia?[quizlet.com]
