28 Possible Causes for PaO2 Decreased, Rales, Reversible Airway Obstruction

  • Asthma

    Bilateral crepitant rales and sibilant rhochi were also detected. In his thoracic computerized tomography, the ground glass areas were noted in both lungs.[] Asthma is a relatively common condition that is characterized by at least partially reversible inflammation of the airways and reversible airway obstruction due to airway[] Asthma is a chronic disorder of the airways that is characterized by reversible airflow obstruction and airway inflammation, persistent airway hyperreactivity, and airway[]

  • Extrinsic Allergic Alveolitis

  • Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease

    Chest auscultation revealed decreased breath sounds without rales.[] OBJECTIVE: Introduction: Out of all respiratory diseases COPD is the leading cause of death and is characterized with diffuse non-reversible airway obstruction.[] Participants were not included or excluded on the basis of reversibility of their airway obstruction.[]

  • Congestive Heart Failure

    No rales were detected because of its paucity of fibrous components in the lung.[] Patients with asthma and reversible airway obstruction were excluded from the trials of beta blockers in heart failure.[] Major criteria: · Paroxysmal nocturnal dyspnea · Neck vein distention · Rales · Radiographic cardiomegaly (increasing heart size on chest radiography) · Acute pulmonary edema[]

  • Recurrent Pulmonary Embolism

  • Bronchiectasis

    Chest auscultation revealed scattered coarse rales.[] […] corticosteroids if reversible airway obstruction is present Antibiotics and bronchodilators for acute exacerbations Sometimes surgical resection for localized disease with[] SIGNIFICANCE OF BRONCHODILATOR THERAPY  Pulmonary function tests - before and after bronchodilator therapy - to assess the reversibility of airway obstruction.  A 15% improvement[]

  • Status Asthmaticus

    This results to hypoxemia, respiratory alkalosis (there will be decreasing PaO2 and respiratory alkalosis, a decreased PaCO2 and an increased pH) and respiratory acidosis[] Classical signs of consolidation such as egophony, rales, whispered pectoriloquy, dullness to percussion or bronchial breath sounds might be heard.[] Treatment goals • Reverse airway obstruction • Correct Hypoxemia • Prevent or treat complications like pneumothorax and respiratory arrest 4. Etiology 5.[]

  • Chronic Bronchitis

    88-92% (PaO2 of 60-70).[] On auscultation of the lungs, no rales are heard; scattered wheezes are heard in the lung bases. How should he be evaluated and treated?
