76 Possible Causes for Hypoxia, Narrow Pulse Pressure

  • Congestive Heart Failure

    Signs There may be a tachycardia at rest, low systolic blood pressure (BP), a displaced apex (LV dilatation) or RV heave (pulmonary hypertension), a narrow pulse pressure[] As well, the infant from the high altitude area showed better adaptability to hypoxia.[] […] vera, thyrotoxicosis CHF precipitants Alcohol, cor pulmonale, drug-related–inappropriate medications, non-compliance, fluid and/or sodium intake, fever, hypothyroidism, hypoxia[]

  • Myocardial Infarction

    10 minutes of hypoxia and a sustained activation that starts after two hours of hypoxia. 113 In this model, ERK2 and JNK are not activated.[] It can be manifested as a primary hypoxic symptom, or cause the exacerbation of underlying diseases due to hypoxia.[] […] significantly increased sirtuin (SIRT) 3 level (2.7-fold) in vivo while the inhibition of SIRT3 exacerbated senescent H9c2 cellular LDH release and ROS production under hypoxia[]

  • Acute Myocardial Infarction

    The Pathophysiology of Myocardial Infarction Myocardial infarction ("heart attack") is the irreversible damage of myocardial tissue caused by prolonged ischemia and hypoxia[] While sympathetic activation helps to maintain arterial pressure, it also leads to a large increase in myocardial oxygen demand that can lead to greater myocardial hypoxia[]

  • Cardiogenic Shock

    Narrow pulse pressure. D. Oliguria. 5. Answer: C. Narrow pulse pressure.[] Fatigue due to hyperventilation and hypoxia. Absent pulse in fast and abnormal heart rhythms.[] Decreased stroke volume causes the pulse pressure to narrow (as is seen in cardiac tamponade).[]

  • Anemia

    Class III (30-40% blood loss) always leads to a measurable decrease in blood pressure as well as significant tachycardia and a narrow pulse pressure.[] Because red blood cells (as hemoglobin) carry oxygen, a decreased production or number of these cells result in "hypoxia."[] In states of hypovolemic hypoxia, the increased venous tone due to sympathetic discharge is thought to dominate the vasodilator effects of hypoxia.[]

  • Myxedema

    pulse pressure.[] Decreased bowel sounds Nonpitting edema Dry/rough skin Decreased reflexes Don’t just make the diagnosis, but identify the etiology Infection MI Hypoglycemia Cold environment Hypoxia[] Pulmonary The main pulmonary effect of myxedema coma is hypoventilation, which results from central depression of ventilatory drive with decreased responsiveness to hypoxia[]

  • Abruptio Placentae

    In group 1, either umbilical artery pH 7.0, Apgar 3(5), or base excess 12 mmol/L represented perinatal hypoxia for this evaluation.[] BACKGROUND: Although abruptio placentae causes hypoxia in the infant and thus leading to cerebral palsy (CP), its incidence and clinical features at a nationwide level have[] […] pattern every 15 min. 2: Encourage client ot rest in the left lateral recumbent position Decrease pressure on the vena cava blood flow increased to the fetus low risk for hypoxia[]

  • Hypovolemia

    If the difference is less than 25 percent of the systolic blood pressure, the pulse pressure is considered to be narrow.[] Upset of acid-base balance, hypoxia and disturbance of electrolytes will aggravate the problem.[] Expect to hear hypoactive bowel sounds if the patient's fluid volume is low enough to cause hypoxia to the mucosa.[]

  • Aortic Valve Stenosis

    Signs Examination of the pulse in significant AS reveals a slow-rising, flat character called pulsus parvus et tardus. [ 7 ] Blood pressure will show a narrow pulse pressure[] […] proposed that hemodynamically significant aortic stenosis may be associated with decreased gastrointestinal perfusion, thereby leading to dilation of blood vessels induced by hypoxia[] Clinical examination classically reveals a narrow pulse pressure, a slow-rising peripheral pulse, pulsus parvus et tardus (weak and delayed pulse) in the carotid pulse, a[]

  • Pneumothorax

    […] less than 90 systolic with narrow pulse pressure [2] This paramedic-level skill involves placing a large bore needle and a 16-gauge or larger catheter, in the second intercostal[] A good skill in lung ultrasound is advantageous in the management of intraoperative hypoxia, particularly for prompt diagnosis of pneumothorax.[] Hypoxia and hypotension are characteristic of tension pneumothorax.[]
