394 Possible Causes for Nasal Flaring

  • Viral Lower Respiratory Infection

    Infants with bronchiolitis typically are fussy and have prominent nasal symptoms, nasal flaring, retractions, tachypnea, diffuse inspiratory crackles and expiratory wheezes[] Nasal flaring. In children aged under 12 months this can be a useful indicator of pneumonia [ 6 ] . Marked tachypnoea (see below).[]

  • Neonatal Respiratory Distress Syndrome

    Still grunting, nasal flaring, sternal retractions; x-ray: streaky hilar infiltrates, diffuse granular infiltrates.[] The symptoms usually appear shortly after birth and may include tachypnea, tachycardia, chest wall retractions (recession), expiratory grunting, nasal flaring and cyanosis[] Symptoms may include: Bluish color of the skin and mucus membranes (cyanosis) Brief stop in breathing (apnea) Decreased urine output Grunting Nasal flaring Rapid breathing[]

  • Staphylococcal Pneumonia

    Signs and symptoms tachypnea, grunting respirations, sternal and subcostal retractions, nasal flaring, cyanosis, and anxiety. lethargic , irritable and toxic. may develop[] The infant displayed tachypnea, grunting, and nasal flaring. His initial oxygen saturation was 91% while breathing room air.[]

  • 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[]

  • Bacterial Pneumonia

    Nasal flaring, use of accessory muscles, and cyanosis are common among infants. Fever is frequently absent in the elderly.[]

  • Airway Obstruction

    Look for other signs of airway obstruction showing respiratory dysfunction such as use of accessory muscles, tracheal tug, rib retraction, rocking chest motion, nasal flaring[]

  • Sepsis Neonatorum

    : hypotension, skin color changes in limbs [cyanosis, pallor, mottling]) ineffective breathing pattern (symptoms: nasal flaring) imbalanced nutrition: less than body requirements[] Infants with neonatal sepsis or infection may exhibit some of these symptoms: apnea shock diarrhea seizures jaundice vomiting cyanosis irritability skin rashes nasal flaring[] Abnormally high (100.4 F) or low body temperatures [10] Diarrhea Slow heart rate Respiratory distress (often presents as tachypnea and mild nasal flaring) [11] Poor feeding[]
