1,078 Possible Causes for Hypoxemia, Tachycardia

  • Pneumonia

    A 23-month-old girl visited the emergency department with high fever, cough, first wheezing episode, chest retraction and tachycardia.[] Although no single finding reliably differentiates pneumonia from other causes of childhood respiratory illness, hypoxemia and increased work of breathing are more important[] One week after admission, she developed fever, dyspnea, hypoxemia, tachycardia, and increased serum C-reactive protein level.[]

  • Influenza

    There can also be tachycardia and dyspnea but with hypotension. Vomiting and diarrhea may also occur, but are rare findings associated with the disorder.[] Patients appear severely ill, with productive bloody cough, hypoxemia, an elevated white blood cell (WBC) count, and multiple cavitary infiltrates on chest radiography. [31[] The prognosis for patients with avian influenza is related to the degree and duration of hypoxemia.[]

  • Acute Bronchitis

    Pneumonia should be suspected in patients with tachypnea, tachycardia, dyspnea, or lung findings suggestive of pneumonia, and radiography is warranted.[] However, patients who complain of dyspnea should have pulse oximetry to rule out hypoxemia.[] Studies Making the diagnosis based on history and physical exam imaging is not necessary Differential Pneumonia differentiating factor a cough with fever, tachypnea, or tachycardia[]

  • Appendicitis

    Fever is usually low-grade with mild tachycardia. Less then 50% of children will have a classic presentation of appendicitis, despite having appendicitis.[] […] non-mutually exclusive ICD-9-CM diagnoses within this CCS category for infants 3 The most frequent ICD-9 diagnosis within this CCS category for children aged 1-4 years was hypoxemia[] Other indications of peritonitis include increasing abdominal distension, acute abdomen, tachycardia, rapid and shallow breathing, and restlessness.[]

  • Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome

    On arrival to the emergency department (ED) the patient was noted to be febrile with tachycardia, tachypnea, and hypoxia and was intubated for respiratory failure.[] Refractory hypoxemia, defined as Pa O 2 less than 60 mm Hg on Fi O 2 of 1.0, occurred in 138 (21%) patients.[] The symptoms usually appear shortly after birth and may include tachypnea, tachycardia, chest wall retractions (recession), expiratory grunting, nasal flaring and cyanosis[]

  • Acute Chest Syndrome

    Raised temperature, tachypnea and tachycardia were the most common findings. ACS was associated with painful crisis (46.8%) and infections (13%).[] Abstract Severe acute chest syndrome afflicts patients with sickle cell disease and can cause hypoxemia refractory to conventional treatments.[] Also, commonly used bronchodilators can have side effects such as tachycardia, nervousness and hyperactivity and, in one reported case, myocardial infarction ( Corso 2005[]

  • ARDS Clinical

    Signs include confusion or alteration of consciousness, cyanosis, tachypnea, tachycardia, and diaphoresis. Cardiac arrhythmia and coma can result.[] Patients were eligible if they were admitted to the medical ICU and fulfilled the Berlin definition of ARDS with hypoxemia criteria using either the standard PF threshold[] It can result in severe hypoxemia refractory to mechanical ventilation.[]

  • Pulmonary Infarction

    […] pregnancy and older age Small infarcts usually have minimal symptoms; if bronchial circulation is inadequate (so reduced collateral circulation), then have shortness of breath, tachycardia[] Thrombolysis was not considered because of the long duration of symptoms and the absence of hypotension, hypoxemia, and substantial right-ventricular dysfunction.[] […] suspicious of a pulmonary infarction if the patient is experiencing hemoptysis or chest pain, or if the physical exam shows evidence of a very large embolus (in particular, if tachycardia[]

  • Congestive Heart Failure

    ECG and telemetry revealed relatively slow supraventricular tachycardia, which did not trigger the alert, and catheter ablation successfully controlled the heart failure.[] 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[] Cardiac causes include arrhythmias (tachycardia or bradycardia), structural heart disease, and myocardial dysfunction (systolic or diastolic).[]

  • Asthma

    The tachycardia, hypertension, and neurological symptoms improved.[] Although the wheezing symptoms disappeared after systemic corticosteroid therapy, the exertional dyspnea and hypoxemia did not improve.[] The end result may be sudden cardiovascular collapse, with systemic hypotension and tachycardia.[]
