91 Possible Causes for Hypoxemia and Cor Pulmonale

  • Bronchitis

    When the FEV1 falls below about 0.8 L, patients are at risk of hypoxemia, hypercapnia, and cor pulmonale.[msdmanuals.com] […] increases pulmonary vascular tone, which, if diffuse, causes pulmonary hypertension and cor pulmonale.[msdmanuals.com] […] airflow limitation and sometimes respiratory insufficiency, complications include Pulmonary hypertension Respiratory infection Weight loss and other comorbidities Chronic hypoxemia[msdmanuals.com]

  • Acute Bronchitis

    When the FEV1 falls below about 0.8 L, patients are at risk of hypoxemia, hypercapnia, and cor pulmonale.[msdmanuals.com] […] increases pulmonary vascular tone, which, if diffuse, causes pulmonary hypertension and cor pulmonale.[msdmanuals.com] […] airflow limitation and sometimes respiratory insufficiency, complications include Pulmonary hypertension Respiratory infection Weight loss and other comorbidities Chronic hypoxemia[msdmanuals.com]

  • Cor Pulmonale

    ‘Arterial hypoxemia, a frequent complication of lung disease, can lead to pulmonary hypertension and cor pulmonale.’[en.oxforddictionaries.com] ‘A 41-year-old man underwent a heart/lung transplant in February 1997 for idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis and cor pulmonale.’[en.oxforddictionaries.com] pulmonale.’[en.oxforddictionaries.com]

  • Pulmonary Alveolar Microlithiasis

    Patients with PAM are asymptomatic till development of hypoxemia and cor pulmonale.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Clinically, the disease may remain static in some patients while it may progress to pulmonary fibrosis, marked hypoxemia and cor pulmonale in others.[sciencedomain.org] Despite the striking radiological appearance, the clinical course is relatively mild and patients remain asymptomatic until the late development of hypoxemia and cor pulmonale[cureus.com]

  • Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease

    Eventually, hypercapnia and respiratory acidosis develop, leading to pulmonary artery vasoconstriction and cor pulmonale.[emedicine.com] When the FEV1 falls below about 0.8 L, patients are at risk of hypoxemia, hypercapnia, and cor pulmonale.[merckmanuals.com] This V/Q mismatch results in rapid circulation in a poorly ventilated lung, leading to hypoxemia and polycythemia.[emedicine.com]

  • Morbid Obesity

    Arterial oxygen tension is lower and chronic hypoxemia may lead to pulmonary hypertension and cor pulmonale.[openanesthesia.org]

  • Pulmonary Emphysema

    Eventually, hypercapnia and respiratory acidosis develop, leading to pulmonary artery vasoconstriction and cor pulmonale.[emedicine.com] pulmonale if the hypoxemia remains untreated.[emedicine.com] This V/Q mismatch results in rapid circulation in a poorly ventilated lung, leading to hypoxemia and polycythemia.[emedicine.com]

  • Acidosis

    Renal: Salt and water retention often attends chronic hypercapnia, especially in the presence of cor pulmonale. 3.[slideshare.net] When hypercapnia is severe or considerable hypoxemia is present, decreases in both cardiac output and blood pressure might be observed. 3.[slideshare.net]

  • Acute Cor Pulmonale

    A 57-year-old man with deep vein thrombosis in his left calf developed acute progressive dyspnea with hypoxemia, cyanosis and the clinical picture of acute cor pulmonale,[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Given persistent hypoxemia and evidence of RV failure, in the setting of ARDS, acute Cor Pulmonale related to ARDS was diagnosed.[swjpcc.com] In most of the reported cases, a clinical picture of subacute cor pulmonale developed.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
