91 Possible Causes for Hypoxemia, Medication Noncompliance, Pneumococcal Pneumonia

  • Asthma

    A meta-analysis by DiMatteo et al [ 50 ] revealed that patients with a chronic disease and depression were three times more likely to be noncompliant with medical treatment[dx.doi.org] 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]

  • Congestive Heart Failure

    These include any recent infection, dietary non compliance (excess use of fluids, alcohol, or salt), medication noncompliance (especially diuretics), presence of chest pain[clinicaladvisor.com] These SRDB cause arousals, hypoxemia-reoxygenation, hypercapnia-hypocapnia, and changes in intrathoracic pressure.[web.archive.org] pneumonia Additionally, people who already have CHF should avoid caffeine, get adequate rest, track changes in their symptoms, avoid very cold or hot temperatures, and wear[medicalnewstoday.com]

  • Pneumonia

    […] independently associated with greater durations of mechanical ventilation: development of acute renal failure (hazard ratio 1.47, 95% CI 1.02 to 2.12) and prescription of an IDSA-noncompliant[doi.org] 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] Home 2015 ICD-9-CM Diagnosis Codes Diseases Of The Respiratory System 460-519 Pneumonia And Influenza 480-488 Pneumococcal pneumonia [Streptococcus pneumoniae pneumonia] 481[icd9data.com]

  • Pulmonary Infarction

    DOACs do not require monitoring, and noncompliance will not be readily apparent. Direct oral anticoagulants.[clevelandclinicmeded.com] -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]

  • Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease

    […] with medications, and the presence of serious comorbidities. 6,7 GOALS OF TREATMENT The main goals of treatment for patients with COPD are to optimize their pulmonary capacity[pharmacytimes.com] […] plus exercise-limiting hypoxemia or nocturnal hypoxemia, 4) exertional hypoxemia without hypoxemia at rest. (15;16) To confirm eligibility for LTOT, oximetry testing is required[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Treatments used in the early stages of disease include vaccination against influenza and pneumococcal pneumonia and administration of drugs that widen the airways (i.e., bronchodilators[britannica.com]

  • Chronic Alcoholism

    Clients must occasionally be discharged as noncompliant, which reinforces to the chronic relapser that he/she can no longer successfully live on self will.[addictionpro.com] Portal hypertension may lead to intrapulmonary arteriovenous shunting with hypoxemia (hepatopulmonary syndrome), which may cause cyanosis and nail clubbing.[merckmanuals.com] To reduce this potentially fatal risk of alcoholism, alcoholics should be vaccinated for pneumococcal pneumonia.[searidgealcoholrehab.com]

  • Influenza

    If so, is the observed benefit enough to balance the considerable added cost, effort, and risk of noncompliance?[doi.org] If patients have lower respiratory tract symptoms and signs (eg, dyspnea, rales noted during lung examination), pulse oximetry to detect hypoxemia and a chest x-ray to detect[msdmanuals.com] pneumonia at a mental health facility in Japan, Journal of Infection and Chemotherapy, 23, 12, (837), (2017).[doi.org]

  • Diabetes Mellitus

Prognosis Diabetes is a chronic disease whose symptoms can be ameliorated and life prolonged by proper therapy.[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com]

  • Sickle Cell Disease

    Introduction A 24-year-old man with sickle cell disease (SCD) was noncompliant with medication and presented in pain crisis with severe abdominal and back pain.[ahajournals.org] This risk is compounded by hypoxemia. Cyanotic congenital heart disease can expose patients to prolonged hypoxemia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] pneumonia vaccine is of greatest importance as pneumococcal pneumonia is a leading cause of morbidity and mortality in individuals with sickle cell disease.[symptoma.com]

  • Status Asthmaticus

    Yet we found that noncompliance with medications and smoking and illicit drug usage increased in this recent 5‐year period compared with the prior study period.[journalofhospitalmedicine.com] […] asthma that is persistent and intractable and remains unresponsive to initial treatment with bronchodilators and systemic corticosteroids and that the condition can result in hypoxemia[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Lobar pneumonia is more prone to occur in younger adults. A majority (more than 80%) of the cases of lobar pneumonia are caused by Streptococcus pneumoniae.[textbookofbacteriology.net]
