2,384 Possible Causes for Immunodeficiency Is Progressive, Impaired Exercise Tolerance, Severe Hypoxemia

  • Anemia

    […] from HIV infection to autoimmune immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS), with a correlation between CD4 T-lymphocyte counts and Hb levels. 7,16 The causes of anemia in HIV/AIDS[ajmc.com] […] include fatigue, pallor, tachycardia, poor exercise tolerance, and suboptimal work performance. 14 Depleted blood reserves during delivery may increase the need for blood[bloodjournal.org] […] virus (HIV)–infected patients can have serious implications, which vary from functional and quality-of-life decrements to an association with disease progression and decreased[academic.oup.com]

  • Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease

    […] in the severe hypoxemia study.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] It has not helped us understand why some patients with severe FEV1 impairment have better exercise tolerance compared with others with similar FEV1 values.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Pharmacological therapy is aimed at relieving symptoms; improving exercise tolerance and quality of life; slowing decline and even improving lung function; or preventing or[doi.org]

  • Asthma

    More severe hypoxemia and the need for higher concentrations of supplemental oxygen may relate to some contribution of shunt physiology.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Wheezing may be absent (associated with most severe airway obstruction), and severe hypoxemia may manifest as bradycardia.[emedicine.medscape.com] People who have COPD and continue to smoke, have a rapid decline in FEV1, who develop severe hypoxemia, develop right-sided heart failure and/or have poor ability to do daily[medicinenet.com]

  • Pulmonary Fibrosis

    severe complications.[bodyandhealth.canada.com] Because the lungs don't take in oxygen as well, low blood oxygen levels ( hypoxemia ) can develop. Lack of oxygen can affect the entire body.[bodyandhealth.canada.com] […] resting cyanosis (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[bodyandhealth.canada.com]

  • Pulmonary Alveolar Proteinosis

    Rarely, hyperbaric chamber or extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) has been utilized to perform WLL to manage severe hypoxemia, with venovenous ECMO being used more[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] PAP is characterized morphologically by the inappropriate and progressive 'occupation' of the alveolar spaces by an excessive amount of unprocessed surfactant, limiting gas[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] It may be difficult to perform WLL in patients with severe hypoxemia wherein patients do not tolerate single lung ventilation.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Pneumonia

    She was emergently admitted to our hospital due to the worsening exertional dyspnea and severe hypoxemia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Common symptoms of PCP include progressive shortness of breath, nonproductive cough, and low‐grade fever.[doi.org] It may improve chest wall mobility and enhance exercise tolerance.[doi.org]

  • 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[doi.org] […] virus (HIV)–associated cardiomyopathy generally progresses to death within 100 days of diagnosis in patients who are not treated with antiretroviral drugs.[emedicine.com] Numerous mechanisms unrelated to hemodynamic dysfunction may underlie impaired exercise tolerance in patients with chronic heart failure.[doi.org]

  • Congestive 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[doi.org] […] virus (HIV)–associated cardiomyopathy generally progresses to death within 100 days of diagnosis in patients who are not treated with antiretroviral drugs.[emedicine.com] The impairment of exercise tolerance indicated by NYHA classification was markedly improved by PD for both groups.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Congenital Heart Disease

    The patient was diagnosed as having gestation combined with congenital heart disease, severe pulmonary arterial hypertension, and hypoxemia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Arterial blood gas analysis revealed her oxygen saturation (SpO2) of 67.8% and oxygen partial pressure of 40.0 mmHg, which were severely low.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Secondary Pulmonary Hypertension

    Pulmonary Hypertension can occur in pulmonary fibrosis, even without severe lung dysfunction or hypoxemia (low oxygen in the blood.) ISN.[sclero.org] These include collagen vascular diseases, chronic thromboembolism, human immunodeficiency virus, portopulmonary hypertension, and other diseases.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] These patients have a distinctive pattern of cardiopulmonary abnormalities with mild to moderate airway obstruction, severe hypoxemia, hypocapnia, and a very low diffusing[ahajournals.org]
