705 Possible Causes for Pulmonary Arterial Pressure Increased

  • Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease

    Some patients with hypoxaemia reveal "out of proportion" pulmonary hypertension with inappropriate increase of pulmonary artery pressure.[] The main characteristic of PH in CRD and particularly in COPD is its mild to moderate degree, resting pulmonary artery mean pressure (PAP) in a stable state of the disease[] COPD also increases your risk of developing pulmonary hypertension, which is high blood pressure in the arteries that serve the lungs.[]

  • Pulmonary Edema

    Systolic pulmonary artery pressure increased at high altitude, but normalised with sildenafil.[] […] left ventricular failure Increased pulmonary capillary pressure secondary to increased pulmonary arterial pressure (so-called overperfusion pulmonary edema) Decreased plasma[] Enhancing pulmonary circulation with sildenafil safely protects against the high altitude-induced PH and improves gas exchange.[]

  • Cor Pulmonale

    Indeed, from a pathophysiologic and clinical standpoint, any disease in which pulmonary arterial pressures increase sufficiently to affect right ventricular function results[] An oxygen saturation of less than 85% usually causes pulmonary arterial pressure to increase above 25 mm Hg. Acidosis and exercise cause further elevations. 4.[] […] in afterload, the rv increases systolic pressure to keep the gradient. at a point, a further increase in the degree of pulmonary arterial pressure produces significant rv[]

  • Pulmonary Embolism

    Echocardiography revealed a large thrombus trapped in a PFO with increased pulmonary artery pressure, which is a very rare and critical condition.[] He has been living well without dyspnea and the echocardiography showed the normalizations of the once increased pulmonary arterial pressure and the once enlarged right ventricle[] This damage may lead to pulmonary hypertension (increased pressure in the pulmonary arteries). Cause low oxygen levels in your blood.[]

  • Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome

    There was no effect on mean pulmonary arterial pressure. Patients receiving nitric oxide had an increased risk of developing renal dysfunction (1.50, 1.11 to 2.02).[] […] desaturation resistant to high concentrations of inhaled 0 2 • Pulmonary function tests showing increased pulmonary vascular pressures and resistances and decreased compliance[] pulmonary arterial pressure.[]

  • Atrial Septal Defect

    The heart can dilate, the muscle can become weak, and the pressures in the pulmonary arteries can increase (pulmonary hypertension) due to the increase in blood flow.[] If a large atrial septal defect goes untreated, increased blood flow to your lungs increases the blood pressure in the lung arteries (pulmonary hypertension).[] Over time, too much blood flow to the lungs can increase the pressure in the pulmonary arteries (blood vessels leading from the heart to the lungs).[]

  • Hypoxia

    Pulmonary hypertension adversely affects survival in COPD, to an extent that parallels the degree to which resting mean pulmonary artery pressure is elevated.[] The gold standard for the diagnosis of PH is right-sided cardiac catheterization, with PH being defined as a mean pulmonary arterial pressure 25 mm Hg at rest. 59 An increased[] Although the severity of airflow obstruction as measured by FEV1 is the best correlate with overall prognosis in patients with COPD, chronic hypoxemia increases mortality[]

  • Pulmonary Infarction

    The higher pressure of the bronchial arteries , in combination with locally increased vascular permeability and capillary endothelial injury, is thought to result in local[] Under such condition, when branch of pulmonary artery is blocked, force of the bronchial arteries is insufficient to supply the obstructed area due to increased pulmonary[] In cases in which the pulmonary embolus is large, a sudden increase in pulmonary artery pressure may lead to right ventricular strain and right heart failure.[]

  • Recurrent Pulmonary Embolism

    Pulmonary arterial pressure and central venous pressure were increased at 63/33 mmHg and 40 mmHg, respectively. ETco 2 was not recordable.[] After thrombolysis, systolic pressure in the pulmonary artery decreased to 50 mmHg and arterial saturation in oxygen increased to 96%.[] A loud 2nd heart sound (S2) due to a loud pulmonic component (P2) is possible but uncommon in acute PE because increases in pulmonary artery pressures. are only modest.[]

  • Pulmonary Hypertension

    Pulmonary hypertension (PH) is an increase in pulmonary arterial pressure secondary to narrowing and obliteration of the lumen of the lung vessels resulting in an increased[] From Wikidata Jump to navigation Jump to search hypertension characterized by an increase of blood pressure in the pulmonary artery, pulmonary vein or pulmonary capillaries[] Signs and symptoms of pulmonary arterial hypertension occur when increased blood pressure cannot fully overcome the elevated resistance.[]
