17 Possible Causes for Rales, Sacral Edema

  • Hyponatremia

    Signs of hypervolaemia - pulmonary rales, S3 gallop (third heart sound), jugular venous distention, peripheral oedema, ascites.[] edema, the presence of a postural drop (helpful in Dr.[] […] difficult to assess with any accuracy at the bedside, a clinical assessment with attention to the patient’s history, heart rate, blood pressure, JVP, the presence of pedal and sacral[]

  • Congestive Heart Failure

    No rales were detected because of its paucity of fibrous components in the lung.[] Peripheral edema: Edema develops in the feet in ambulatory patients and sacral edema in bed bound patients.[] sacral region in bedridden patients.[]

  • Heart Failure

    […] because of an inherited or acquired abnormality of cardiac structure and/or function, develop a constellation of clinical symptoms (dyspnea and fatigue) and signs (edema and rales[] Peripheral edemas ( ankle, lower leg, in patients confined to bed also sacral anasarca, pleural effusion, ascites, weight gain) 7.2 Causal diagnostics Coronary artery disease[] Major criteria: · Paroxysmal nocturnal dyspnea · Neck vein distention · Rales · Radiographic cardiomegaly (increasing heart size on chest radiography) · Acute pulmonary edema[]

  • High Output Heart Failure

    Patients with high output heart failure present with dyspnea, tachypnea, non-productive cough, fatigability, pulmonary rales, pleural effusion and peripheral edema, as a result[] sacral region in bedridden patients.[] A chest examination detected no rales.[]

  • Acute Massive Pulmonary Embolism

    Lung exam is often normal but may reveal rales or decreased breath sounds.[] , sacral edema Nocturia * At least 1 of the following.[] […] disturbance Right-bundle branch block Atrial arrhythmia (fibrillation or flutter) RV failure Chronic dyspnea (exertional or rest) Ascites / congestive hepatopathy Peripheral edema[]

  • Ascites

    Approximately 1,500 mL of fluid must be present to detect dullness. 205 In supine patients, sacral edema is an important clue.[]

  • Chronic Right-Sided Congestive Heart Failure

    Listen for rales in lower lung lobes, tachypnea and pitting edema in legs.[] As a result, there will be peripheral edema, swelling in foot and ankle in people who are mostly standing and sacral edema in people who are lying down.[] , sacral edema, ascites and/or anasarca Various manifestations of increased hydrostatic venous pressures Hepatosplenomegaly ( /- right upper quadrant pain) Portal and splenic[]

  • Right-Sided Heart Failure

    Cardiopulmonary auscultation revealed a grade 5 systolic murmur at the apical area with axillary irradiation and discrete bilateral lung rales.[] sacral region in bedridden patients.[] This increased pressure forces fluid out of the intravascular compartment and into the tissue spaces of the lungs, causing pulmonary edema.[]

  • Anasarca

    Physical examination usually reveals wet rales, possible diastolic gallop (S3), and heart murmurs. Cardiac and renal disease are common causes of pulmonary edema.[] […] who are standing up, and sacral edema in people who are predominantly lying down).[] Respiratory examination showed bilateral basal rales and decreased air entry at the bases. Her abdomen was tender with evidence of tense ascites.[]

  • Libman-Sacks Disease

    Tachypnea and cyanosis Pulse (plateau pulse, low-volume pulse, pulsus alternans) Jugular venous distension Displaced apex beat Third and/or fourth heart sounds Pulmonary rales[] Admitted for resting dyspnea and marked bloody sputum; at exploration she presented tachypnea, increased central venous pressure, bilateral rales up to the middle lung field[] […] and peripheral edema A focal neurological deficit secondary to embolic phenomena or thrombosis with or without the antiphospholipid syndrome might be noted.[]
