4,395 Possible Causes for Hypoxia

  • Pneumonia

    Pneumonia can cause hypoxia and increased work of breathing.[ems1.com] Other general measures include: [ 2 , 5 ] Oxygen for hypoxia; ventilation if there is severe hypoxia. Fluids for dehydration.[patient.info] Tissue hypoxia leads to anaerobic metabolism, which causes metabolic acidosis.[ems1.com]

  • Dementia

    […] dementia-like symptoms including reactions to medications, metabolic problems and endocrine abnormalities, nutritional deficiencies, infections, brain tumors, anoxia or hypoxia[hopkinsmedicine.org] Sudden, severe hypoxia may also cause brain damage and symptoms of dementia. Sudden hypoxia may occur if someone is comatose or has to be resuscitated.[emedicinehealth.com] Such conditions include: Anemia Congestive heart failure Decreased blood oxygen ( hypoxia ) Depression Heart failure Infections Nutritional disorders Thyroid disorders Medicines[nlm.nih.gov]

  • Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis

    VEGF-A receptors and co-receptors were differentially expressed by hypoxia and hyperoxia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] A decrease in blood oxygen level ( hypoxia ) can lead to elevated pressure in the pulmonary artery (the vessel that carries blood from the heart to the lungs to receive oxygen[medicinenet.com] This is a sign of hypoxia or decreased level of oxygen in the tissue. This sign usually manifests later on the disease progress.[stemcellthailand.org]

  • Sinusitis

    If the acute sinusitis does not resolve, chronic sinusitis can develop from mucus retention, hypoxia, and blockade of the ostia.[clevelandclinicmeded.com] The ciliary action can be affected due to local factors, such as infection and local hypoxia that is associated with complete occlusion of sinus ostia.[emedicine.medscape.com] This inflammation leads to blockade of the normal sinus drainage pathways (sinus ostia), which in turn leads to mucus retention, hypoxia, decreased mucociliary clearance,[clevelandclinicmeded.com]

  • Acromegaly

    In patients with acromegaly and difficult intubation, the insulin-like growth factor 1 levels and apnea/hypoxia index were significantly higher compared to patients without[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Repeated hypoxia/reperfusions cause oxidative stress, inflammation, tissue injury and eventually lead to hypertension, coronary artery disease, arrhythmia and heart failure[omicsonline.org] The modified Mallampati classification was positively correlated with apnea/hypoxia index and could be calculated using the following logarithmic equation: MMC   0.2982 *[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Upper Respiratory Infection

    Sometimes hospitalization may be necessary if upper respiratory infection is severe and causes significant dehydration , respiratory difficulty with poor oxygenation ( hypoxia[rxlist.com]

  • Patulous Eustachian Tube

    Among these, hypoxia of the inner ear via negative pressure in the middle ear is a major theory.[jneuro.com]

  • Influenza

    […] some or all of the following findings: Fever of 100-104 F; fever is generally lower in elderly patients than in young adults Tachycardia, which most likely results from hypoxia[emedicine.medscape.com]

  • Viral Lower Respiratory Infection

    Respiratory failure, hypoxia and death are rare unless there is previous lung disease or the patient is immunocompromised.[patient.info] […] expansion, adjusting for covariates related to the index admission (age, sex, admission to high dependency unit [HDU], geographic sublocation of residence, hospital access, hypoxia[wwwnc.cdc.gov] Intubation is required when the child's own breathing becomes ineffective (with, for example, hypoxia, rising carbon dioxide and reduced level of consciousness).[patient.info]

  • Acute Bronchitis

    Pertussis is a highly contagious bacterial respiratory illness with several potentially severe complications, including dehydration, hypoxia, encephalopathy, syncope, seizures[journals.lww.com]
