206 Possible Causes for Lip Cyanosis, Tachypnea, X-Ray Abnormal

  • Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis

    Imaging techniques like chest X-ray, CT scan and echocardiogram help in determining the location and extent of damage to lungs.[] A complete physical examination, particularly the sound of breathing pattern, is used to diagnose abnormalities in the structure and function of lungs.[]

  • Asbestosis

    […] will develop lung related complications such as: Cor pulmonale Cancer of the pleura and lung Progressive respiratory insufficiency marked by severe shortness of breath, tachypnea[] (" cyanosis "), and failure of the right side of the heart ("cor pulmonale").[] […] shadowing on the chest x-ray and abnormalities of lung function tests.[]

  • Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome

    The symptoms usually appear shortly after birth and may include tachypnea, tachycardia, chest wall retractions (recession), expiratory grunting, nasal flaring and cyanosis[] Cyanosis (blue skin, lips, and nails caused by lack of oxygen to the tissues) is often seen.[] 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.[]

  • Pneumothorax

    The classic presentation will be a patient in distress with tachycardia, tachypnea, hypotension and hypoxia.[] Hypoxemia (decreased blood-oxygen levels) is usually present and may be observed as cyanosis (blue discoloration of the lips and skin).[] Physical signs include respiratory distress, tachypnea, absent breath sounds, decreased tactile fremitus, tachycardia, hypotension, pulsus paradoxus and jugular venous distension[]

  • Neonatal Respiratory Distress Syndrome

    The symptoms usually appear shortly after birth and may include tachypnea, tachycardia, chest wall retractions (recession), expiratory grunting, nasal flaring and cyanosis[] Various signs and symptoms associated with neonatal respiratory distress syndrome are as follows: Grunting respiration Flaring nostrils Cyanosis Blue-colored lips, fingers[] Transient tachypnea of the newborn is the most common cause of respiratory distress in the newborn period.[]

  • Pneumococcal Pneumonia

    Decreased diaphragmatic motion from what is expected (considering tachypnea) may be observed.[] Diagnosis is typically made from an x ray of the lungs, which indicates the accumulation of fluid.[] Other common symptoms include Pleuritic chest pain Cough productive of mucopurulent Rusty sputum Dyspnea Tachypnea or tachycardia Hypoxia Malaise or weakness Nausea, vomiting[]

  • Ventricular Septal Defect

    In this situation, children tend to show the symptoms seen so far, like tachypnea and cyanosis, when they are under physical exercise but not when they are at rest.[] Echocardiogram (also called "echo" or ultrasound): sound waves create an image of the heart Electrocardiogram (ECG or EKG): a record of the electrical activity of the heart Chest X-ray[] Moderately-sized defects can cause congestive heart failure , which is characterized by an abnormally rapid rate of breathing (tachypnea), wheezing , unusually fast heartbeat[]

  • High Altitude Pulmonary Edema

    […] exercise performance Chest tightness or congestion Signs, at least two of: Crackles or wheezing (while breathing) in at least one lung field Central cyanosis (blue skin color) Tachypnea[] 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.[]

  • Pericarditis

    Most children presented with chest pain, fever, and tachypnea, but cardiac tamponade was not seen in […] Durani Y1, Giordano K, Goudie BW.[] Chest X-rays may be normal, but if there is a significant pericardial effusion, the heart shape may be abnormal. It is sometimes described as globular or flask shaped.[] It shows abnormal rhythms and can sometimes detect heart muscle damage. Small sensors are taped to your skin to pick up the electrical activity. Chest X-ray.[]

  • Bacterial Pneumonia

    Outcome Measures : Treatment Failure in Each Group [ Time Frame: 1, 2, 5, 7 and 10 days from baseline ] Number of participants with persistence of fever after 2 days, or tachypnea[] This includes blue appearance of the nail beds or lips (cyanosis).[] A chest X-ray can help identify which part of the patient's lung is infected. An X-ray also can show abnormal fluid collections which also can help diagnose pneumonia.[]
