243 Possible Causes for Hypoxia, Lip Cyanosis, X-Ray Abnormal

  • Asbestosis

    (" cyanosis "), and failure of the right side of the heart ("cor pulmonale").[] OximetryPulse oximetry will usually reveal hypoxia which may be exacerbated in the presence of right heart failure and cor pulmonale.[] […] shadowing on the chest x-ray and abnormalities of lung function tests.[]

  • Pulmonary Edema

    Poor judgement Breathlessness during rest Rapid heart rate (90 to 100 bpm at rest) Blue/grey lips or fingernails (cyanosis) Fever of up to 101.3 F/38.5 C Profuse perspiration[] The hypoxia changes pulmonary vascular resistance (hypoxic pulmonary venous constriction, as opposed to elsewhere in the body).[] Examples of tests used in diagnosing pulmonary edema include: complete blood count echocardiogram, or an ultrasound, to check for abnormal heart activity chest X-ray (CXR)[]

  • Cor Pulmonale

    , or gums ( cyanosis ) pronounced neck veins inability to tolerate exercise Pulmonary hypertension and cor pulmonale can lead to severe fluid retention which, in turn, can[] Hypoxia and acidosis - The vasoconstrictive effect of hypoxia is a potent stimulus for hypertension.[] Diagnostic highlights Test Normal Result Abnormality With Condition Explanation Chest x-rays Normal heart size and clear lungs Enlarged right ventricle and pulmonary artery[]

  • High Altitude Pulmonary Edema

    […] min of hypoxia.[] Poor judgement Breathlessness during rest Rapid heart rate (90 to 100 bpm at rest) Blue/grey lips or fingernails (cyanosis) Fever of up to 101.3 F/38.5 C Profuse perspiration[] Both the prompt resolution of the opacity on the chest X-ray and the initial increased pulmonary artery pressure are evidence of HAPE.[]

  • Right to Left Shunt

    […] the aetiology of the hypoxia.[] This anomaly presents with large right-to-left shunt, as cyanosis, and is a prominent clinical sign in this patient.[] Chest x ray was normal and there were no ECG abnormalities.[]

  • Amniotic Fluid Embolism

    - ‘Classic’ triad hypoxia, haemodynamic collapse, DIC APO/ALI ( 90%) Cardiac arrest ( 90%) Fetal distress (100%) SOB Bronchospasm Cough Arrhythmia Chest pain Seizure Headache[] Chest X-ray does not often show any abnormality in the early stages before ARDS develops. ECG may demonstrate a right ventricular strain pattern in the early stage.[] Usually presents with respiratory distress, hypotension, hypoxia.[]

  • Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome

    Cyanosis (blue skin, lips, and nails caused by lack of oxygen to the tissues) is often seen.[] The alveoli are then filled with fluid and are unable to perform the normal oxygenation of the blood and the patient suffers from hypoxia.[] Chest X-rays showed abnormalities in 60–100% of the patients [ 16 Wong K.T., Antonio G.E., Hui D.S., Lee N., Yuen E.H., Wu A., and al.[]

  • Pulmonary Fibrosis

    Lung transplantation may be considered for some patients. [18] Prognosis [ edit ] Lung with end-stage pulmonary fibrosis at autopsy Hypoxia caused by pulmonary fibrosis can[] (blue lips, nail beds, and sometimes skin due to lack of oxygen in the tissue) clubbing of the fingers (enlarged fingertips) Pulmonary fibrosis can lead to several severe[] The chest X-ray may or may not be abnormal. However, a special X-ray test called a high resolution CT scan will frequently demonstrate abnormalities.[]

  • Influenza Pneumonia

    After typical symptoms of upper respiratory tract infection and fever appear, severe respiratory decline with hypoxia and cyanosis can ensue without early recognition and[] […] to smoking Allergies : NKDA Any Medications : None Lab Results Patient Treatment Goals -Clear breath sounds -Achieve normal breathing patterns (no dyspnea) -No signs of hypoxia[] Nevertheless, approximately 2-5 days after the appearance of signs and symptoms typical for influenza, dyspnea, hypoxia, hemoptysis, cyanosis, and rapidly ensuing acute respiratory[]

  • Atelectasis
