821 Possible Causes for Sighing

  • Obesity

    Abstract Since the original description of the obesity‐survival paradox in 1999, which suggested a survival advantage for overweight and obese patients undergoing hemodialysis, a large body of evidence supporting the paradox has accumulated. The reason for the paradox has yet to be defined. Better nutrition may[…][]

  • Hyperventilation

    , psychologically or physiologically based, involving breathing too deeply and/or too rapidly (hyperventilation) or erratic breathing interspersed with breath-holding or sighing[] Symptoms include dyspnoea, chest tightness, sighing and chest pain which arise secondary to alterations in respiratory pattern and rate.[] […] exercise for inclusion in this review, such as breathing control, diaphragmatic breathing, yoga breathing, Buteyko breathing, biofeedback-guided breathing modification, yawn/sigh[]

  • Morbid Obesity

    BACKGROUND: Class III obesity is a global health emergency associated with an increase in the incidence of many other diseases such as type 2 diabetes mellitus, hypertension, hyperlipidemia, cancer, obstructive sleep apnea, nonalcoholic fatty liver disease, osteoarthritis, infertility, and mental health disorders. Minimal[…][]

  • Anxiety Disorder

    The goal of this study was to evaluate the efficacy of cognitive-behavioral therapy for comorbid panic disorder with agoraphobia (PDA) and generalized anxiety disorder (GAD) by combining treatment strategies for both disorders. A single-case, multiple-baseline design across participants was used. Three participants[…][]

  • Vasovagal Syncope

    Clinical data are reported for 13 patients who were referred with recurrent loss of consciousness at night interrupting their sleep. Most of the patients were women (10 of 13) with a mean age of 45 years (range 21-72 years). The histories were more consistent with vasovagal syncope than with epilepsy. This was[…][]

  • Mixed Anxiety and Depressive Disorder

    Abstract The aim of the present study was to evaluate the validity of mixed anxiety and depressive disorder (MADD) with reference to functional characteristics and symptomatic characteristics in comparison with anxiety disorders, depressive disorders, and groups showing subthreshold symptoms (exclusively[…][]

A 61-year-old ambulant old male visited our emergency department for sudden syncope. After the exclusion of neurological and coronary[…][]

  • Hypoxia

    In recent years, there has been a wealth of new information on the physiological and biochemical consequences of hypoxia, or low blood levels of oxygen. This new volume discusses the implications of these new findings on the pathophysiology, development, and treatment of hypoxic metabolic acidosis. The volume is part[…][]

  • Acute Hyperventilation

    Frequent yawning and sighing as mentioned above. Air 'hunger' and feeling like you cannot take a deep breath or 'get your breath'. Poor exercise tolerance.[] It may be caused by breathing faster than normal (more than 15 breaths a minute) mouth breathing, sighing or yawning frequently.[] It contributes to frequent sighs, and audible expirations. Typically with HVS the rate of breath is 20 breaths per minute or greater. References[]

  • Leigh's Disease

    Some patients had irregular breathing, deep sighing respiration, unexplained hyperventilation, or hiccups with lethargy and serious feeding problems lasting for a few days[] Even so, episodes of deep sighing respirations, hyperventilation, rapid irregular breathing and sobbing unassociated with crying were reported in 26 of the 86 cases.[] Intermittent sighing respirations may be found secondary to brainstem dysfunction. Rarely can it present in the childhood (juvenile form).[]
