27 Possible Causes for Tracheal Tug, Upper Airway Obstruction

  • Croup

    Symptoms usually resolve within 48 hours, but severe upper airway obstruction can, rarely, lead to respiratory failure and arrest.[] The respiratory distress is quite notable with dyspnea, intercostal retractions, nasal flaring, and tracheal tugging.[] tug; nasal flaring Posture Infant Arching backwards Child Tripod position Noise Infants grunt to generate auto-CPAP; wheezing can occur with an inhaled foreign body; stridor[]

  • Congenital Laryngeal Cyst

    Congenital laryngeal cysts are rare and can cause upper airway obstruction if they are misdiagnosed.[] Tracheal tug, sternal retractions, inter-costals, and sub costal retractions were also present. The chest x-ray was consistent with right-sided aspiration pneumonia.[] Upper Airway Obstruction in a Newborn with Vallecular Cyst Bilin Cetinkaya 1 ; Serkan Yılmaz 2 ; Cuneyt Yilmazer 2 ; Hande Gulcan 1 1.[]

  • Upper Airway Obstruction

    The characteristic finding in upper airway obstruction is stridor-inspiratory, biphasic or expiratory.[] Continued breathing effort against a partially or completely obstructed airway manifests it self as distorted paradoxical breathing and tracheal tug.[] Stridor is accompanied by hoarseness, brassy cough, tracheal shift or tug and distended neck veins.[]

  • Congenital Goiter

    There is not much reported experience with MRI for the assessment of fetal goiter, but in the present case reports it failed to indicate the possibility of upper airway obstruction[] Twin N-2 had clear evidence of airway obstruction with tracheal tug, sternal recession and poor air entry, and was also intubated at 2 min of age.[]

  • Retropharyngeal Abscess

    We present a case of Kawasaki disease mimicking a retropharyngeal abscess, with upper airway obstruction resulting in delayed diagnosis.[] Airway compromise usually presents as tachypnea, cyanosis, tracheal tug, or intercostal recession.[] In complex cases, an emergency tracheotomy may be required to prevent upper airway obstruction caused by edema in the neck.[]

  • Acute Subglottic Laryngitis

    […] symptoms of upper airway obstruction become apparent.[] The respiratory distress is quite notable with dyspnea, intercostal retractions, nasal flaring, and tracheal tugging.[] The author deals with rational therapy of acute subglottic laryngitis and other upper airway obstructions as far as drugs, thei r appropriateness Forum Navigation.[]

  • Status Asthmaticus

    Differential diagnosis- Primary Pulmonary Hypertension - Congestive heart failure - Croup - Stridor 4. - Upper airway obstruction - Orthopnea Diagnosis- Obtain a CBC count[] Historical features: Previous intubation Frequent admissions Examination findings: Agitation or delirium Use of accessory muscles Intercostal recession Tracheal tug Silent[] COPD, CHF, pulmonary embolism, croup, bronchiolitis, upper airway obstruction, pneumonia, bronchitis, allergic reactions, and other conditions may also present with the same[]

  • Spasmodic Croup

    Common Causes of Upper Airway Obstruction Objectives After completing this article, readers should be able to Know that upper respiratory tract infections and airway obstruction[] Tug Nasal Flaring Marked increase or decrease Tracheal Tug Nasal Flaring Accessory Muscle Use None or minimal Moderate chest wall retraction Marked chest wall retraction[] His chest is clear on auscultation, there is no tracheal tug or chest-wall recession, and his respiratory rate is normal.[]

  • Laryngeal Stridor

    Obstruction of the upper airway Note: Obstruction of the upper airway produces turbulent airflow which produces stridor.[] • Noisy breathing - stertor, stridor • Increased respiratory rate • Increased use of muscles (accessory, intercostal) • Tracheal tug • Difficulty in talking • Tachycardic[] Signs of airway obstruction include rib retraction, tracheal tug, paradoxical breathing movements (chest falls and abdomen rises with inspiration) and possibly stridor.[]
