  • Aspiration Pneumonia

    A 64 year old woman presented with persistent and severe symptoms due to recurrent aspiration pneumonias associated with oesophageal reflux.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] An 80-year-old man was admitted to the hospital with recurrent right-sided aspiration pneumonia, found on barium swallow to be due to diffuse idiopathic skeletal hyperostosis[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Hypotension

    Clinical presentation was hoarseness, aspiration pneumonia and hypoxemia requiring ventilatory support.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Neuropraxia of recurrent laryngeal nerve due to prolong intra-operative hypotension, even with normal endotracheal tube cuff pressure was the likely mechanism.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Clostridium Difficile

    There were no procedure-related adverse events, except aspiration pneumonia in one patient.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] During the follow-up period (mean 11.4 months), recurrence of CDI was observed in one patient at one month after FMT due to antibiotics.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Dysautonomia

    pneumonias due to aspiration, Inability to tolerate lower oxygen levels Kidney: dehydration with elevated blood urea nitrogen (BUN), poor kidney blood flow, salt wasting,[childlifesociety.org] […] motility problems (constipation, dumping syndrome) Heart: episodes of erratic fast heart rate and high blood pressure, low blood pressure (hypotension), dysrhythmias Lungs: Recurrent[childlifesociety.org]

  • Wolfram Syndrome

    Life-threatening complications, including central apnea (due to bulbar dysfunction) are frequent and may lead to recurrent aspiration pneumonia.[orpha.net] Additional features may include urinary tract abnormalities (hydroureter, urinary incontinence, recurrent infections), neurological involvement (ataxia, myoclonus, epilepsy[orpha.net]

  • Foreign Body Aspiration

    The right lower lobe of the lung is the most common site of recurrent pneumonia in foreign body aspiration.[en.wikipedia.org] pneumonia of a specific lung lobe.[en.wikipedia.org] This is due to the fact that the anatomy of the right main bronchus is wider and steeper than that of the left main bronchus, allowing objects to enter more easily than the[en.wikipedia.org]

  • Ependymoblastoma

    Two passed away postoperatively with aspiration pneumonia.[karger.com] One patient died due to complications of chemotherapy and another one due to tumor recurrence 1 year after surgery. Only the patient with CPP is alive after 2 years.[karger.com]

  • Distal Spinal Muscular Atrophy Type 3

    Bulbar involvement predisposes the person with spinal muscular atrophy to recurrent aspiration pneumonia, due to weakening of the muscles necessary for efficient swallowing[encyclopedia.com]

  • X-linked Distal Spinal Muscular Atrophy Type 3

    Bulbar involvement predisposes the person with spinal muscular atrophy to recurrent aspiration pneumonia, due to weakening of the muscles necessary for efficient swallowing[encyclopedia.com]
