158 Possible Causes for Mild Hypoxemia

  • Anemia

    BACKGROUND: Posterior reversible encephalopathy syndrome is a neurotoxic condition that occurs as a result of the failure of posterior circulatory autoregulation in response to acute changes in blood pressure. Overperfusion with resultant disruption of the blood-brain barrier results in vasogenic edema, but not[…][]

  • Asthma

    In the early stages of acute, severe asthma, analysis of arterial blood gases usually reveals mild hypoxemia, hypocapnia and respiratory alkalosis.[] Hypoxemia is therefore common in every asthmatic crisis of some severity; mild hypoxia is easily corrected with the administration of relatively low concentrations of supplemental[] More severe hypoxemia and the need for higher concentrations of supplemental oxygen may relate to some contribution of shunt physiology.[]

  • Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease

    In summary, the eligibility criteria for LTOT in Ontario are: 1) severe hypoxemia, 2) mild-to-moderate hypoxemia with specific comorbidities, 3) mild-to-moderate hypoxemia[] Exertional oxygen of limited benefit in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and mild hypoxemia.[] […] with mild-to-moderate hypoxemia and compared LTOT with no LTOT.[]

  • Pulmonary Emphysema

    COPD have mild to moderate hypoxemia without hypercapnia As the disease progresses, hypoxemia worsens and hypercapnia may develop, with the latter commonly being observed[] […] chronic respiratory failure Arterial blood gas (ABG) findings are as follows: ABGs provide the best clues as to acuteness and severity of disease exacerbation Patients with mild[]

  • Pulmonary Edema

    The accumulation of liquid in the interstitium may compromise the small airways, leading to mild hypoxemia.[]

  • Sleep Apnea

    Dental appliances to promote mandibular stabilization have also been shown to be helpful in cases of mild residual sleep apnea.[] Mohamed Tahiri, Chronic permanent hypoxemia predisposes to mild elevation of liver stiffness, World Journal of Gastroenterology, 10.3748/wjg.v20.i30.10564, 20, 30, (10564)[] Hypoxemia alone does not explain blood pressure elevations after obstructive apneas.

  • Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome

    The Berlin definition proposed 3 categories of ARDS based on the severity of hypoxemia: mild (200 mm Hg[] , acknowledging the limited number of patients with mild to moderate hypoxemia.[] A draft definition proposed 3 mutually exclusive categories of ARDS based on degree of hypoxemia: mild (200 mm Hg PaO2/FIO2 300 mm Hg), moderate (100 mm Hg PaO2/FIO2 200 mm[]

  • Pulmonary Embolism

    Major Causes Pulmonary embolism (PE) usually begins as a blood clot in a deep vein of the leg. This condition is called deep vein thrombosis. The clot can break free, travel through the bloodstream to the lungs, and block an artery. The animation below shows how a blood clot from a deep vein in the leg can travel to[…][]
