1,650 Possible Causes for Respiratory Acidosis

  • Asthma

    Metabolic acidosis denotes impeding respiratory arrest.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] muscle fatigue Worsening hypoxemia (not enough oxygen in the blood) Respiratory acidosis (retention of carbon dioxide in the blood) What surgery is available to treat COPD[medicinenet.com] Respiratory failure leads to respiratory acidosis due to retention of carbon dioxide as alveolar ventilation decreases.[emedicine.medscape.com]

  • Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease

    Eventually, hypercapnia and respiratory acidosis develop, leading to pulmonary artery vasoconstriction and cor pulmonale.[emedicine.com] Oxygen In a cluster randomised, controlled parallel group trial, in 405 patients, titrated oxygen significantly reduced mortality, hypercapnia and respiratory acidosis.[symptoma.com]

  • Pulmonary Edema

    The metabolic and respiratory acidosis of acute pulmonary edema. Ann Intern Med 1972 ; 76 : 173 –84. Perel A , Williamson D, Modell J.[pmj.bmj.com] This compromises left ventricular function through the ventricular interdependence mechanism. 17 Finally, profound circulatory insufficiency results in metabolic acidosis,[pmj.bmj.com] CPO is characterised by an increase in extravascular lung water, which causes a decrease in respiratory system compliance, increased airway resistance, air trapping, arterial[pmj.bmj.com]

  • Sleep Apnea

    Slight respiratory acidosis was observed in 50% of the patients.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The increased CO2 causes a drop in pH, leading to a state of respiratory acidosis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] acidosis.[en.wikipedia.org]

  • Obstructive Sleep Apnea

    acidosis ; renal compensation ; increased HCO 3 retention and decreased chloride reabsorption References: [6] [1] [7] Clinical features Restless sleep with waking, gasping[amboss.com] […] arterial blood ( PaCO 2 , also known as hypercapnia ) Hypoxic pulmonary vasoconstriction pulmonary hypertension cor pulmonale Sympathetic activity secondary hypertension Respiratory[amboss.com]

  • Acidosis

    Respiratory acidosis can be acute or chronic.[web.archive.org] Some people with chronic respiratory acidosis get acute respiratory acidosis because an acute illness makes their condition worse and disrupts their body's acid-base balance[nlm.nih.gov] Acute vs chronic respiratory acidosis Respiratory acidosis can be acute or chronic.[emedicine.com]

  • Congestive Heart Failure

    Metabolic alkalosis, isolated or in combination with another abnormality, is the most common acid-base disorder in patients with congestive heart failure. In most cases, it is a result of diuretic therapy, which causes activation of the renin-angiotensin system, chloride depletion, increased distal sodium delivery,[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Hypercapnia

    respiratory acidosis: Change in pH 0.03 X ((40 Pa CO 2 )/10) Respiratory acidosis does not have a great effect on electrolyte levels.[en.wikipedia.org] Acute vs chronic respiratory acidosis Respiratory acidosis can be acute or chronic.[emedicine.medscape.com] Hypercapnia -vs- Respiratory acidosis?[anaesthesiamcq.com]

  • Opiate Overdose

    […] appropriate use of naloxone can prevent intubation Electrolytes and Acid-base respiratory acidosis Specific Therapy naloxone: titrated doses until reversal of respiratory[lifeinthefastlane.com] […] by, last update April 2, 2019 CLINICAL FEATURES miosis CNS depression respiratory depression complications of hypoxia: seizures, dysrrhythmia, brain injury MANAGEMENT Resuscitation[lifeinthefastlane.com]

  • Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome

    However, lowering Vts may result in respiratory acidosis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] High ventilatory pressures were needed because of hypoxia and severe hypercapnia with respiratory acidosis, resulting in right ventricular dysfunction with impaired haemodynamic[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] respiratory acidosis and hypoxemia and to provide adequate oxygenation of extra-pulmonary organs.[xlung.net]
