294 Possible Causes for PaO2 Decreased, Prominent Sulci

  • Pneumothorax

    Due to this there is a decrease in vital capacity as well as a decrease in PaO2 which is the main consequence of a pneumothorax.[physio-pedia.com] , darkened lung field and prominent heart border.[oxfordmedicaleducation.com] The decrease in PaO2 results from various factors i.e low ventilation-perfusion ratios, anatomic shunts and alveolar hypoventilation.[physio-pedia.com]

  • Morbid Obesity

    Linezolid serum concentrations were obtained and vancomycin was reinstituted, after which the patient began to improve (afebrile, improving PaO2/FiO2 ratio, decreasing leukocytosis[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Obesity

    BACKGROUND: Monogenic obesity results from single gene mutations. Extreme obesity starting at an early age, especially in infancy, which is associated with endocrinopathy and metabolic disturbances is key to the diagnosis of monogenic obesity.

    Asthma is a chronic inflammatory disease of the airways characterized by airway hyperresponsiveness and reversible airflow obstruction. It is caused by a combination of incompletely understood environmental and genetic interactions. Common symptoms include wheezing, coughing and dyspnea, which may vary from mild[…][symptoma.com]

  • Respiratory Syncytial Virus Infection

    Respiratory syncytial virus infection is a common cause of morbidity and death in pediatric patients. The clinical presentation ranges from mildly symptomatic to life-threatening pneumonia presenting as apnea and respiratory distress.

  • Congestive Heart Failure

    Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews Background A promising approach to the treatment of chronic ischaemic heart disease and congestive heart failure is the use of stem cells. The last decade has seen a plethora of randomised controlled trials developed worldwide, which have generated conflicting results.[…][doi.org]
