48 Possible Causes for Wet Rales

  • Congestive Heart Failure

    Pulmonary congestion with wet rales in the lower half of the lung fields; StageIII—Severe heart failure.[doi.org] Left sided filling pressure is assessed by chest auscultation, with the presence of wet rales in the lung fields usually indicating raised pressure.[doi.org] Diagnostic criteria include rales, S3 gallop and pulmonary venous hypertension.[doi.org]

  • Pneumonia

    Pneumonia is a breathing (respiratory) condition in which there is an infection of the lung. This article covers community-acquired pneumonia (CAP). This type of pneumonia is found in people who have not recently been in the hospital or another health care facility such as a nursing home or rehab facility. Pneumonia[…][nlm.nih.gov]

  • Pulmonary Edema

    Cardiogenic pulmonary edema is a common presentation of acute heart failure normally treated with continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP), diuretics and nitrates. This therapy is contraindicated in case of cardiac tamponade. We describe a case of pulmonary edema due to cardiac tamponade in which integrated[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Cardiomyopathy

    Cardiomyopathy can be acquired or inherited. “Acquired” means you aren’t born with the disease, but you develop it due to another disease, condition, or factor. “Inherited” means your parents passed the gene for the disease on to you. Researchers continue to look for the genetic links to cardiomyopathy and to[…][web.archive.org]

  • Chronic Bronchitis

    What is Chronic Bronchitis? Bronchitis is the inflammation of the lining of the airways, or bronchial tubes. When your airways are inflamed and/or infected, less air is able to flow to and from the lungs and you cough up heavy mucus or phlegm. There are two types of bronchitis: acute and chronic. A cute bronchitis[…][web.archive.org]

  • Pulmonary Embolism

    A 56-year-old man developed chronic breathlessness which persisted for years after he suffered acute pulmonary embolism (PE) despite all investigations being subsequently normal. This case illustrates a very common complication which occurs in up to half of all patients after an acute PE which has been labelled[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome

    A 30 year-old Hispanic man with no significant previous medical history presented with refractory hypoxemia after flu-like symptoms. Because of progressive hypoxemia despite appropriate ventilator strategies, venovenous extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (VV-ECMO) was initiated for severe acute respiratory[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Pneumococcal Pneumonia

    Abstract The aging of the world population is expected to be accompanied by increased pneumococcal pneumonia in older adults. To address this, the Community-Acquired Pneumonia immunization Trial in Adults (CAPiTA), a large, randomized, placebo-controlled trial conducted to assess the 13-valent pneumococcal conjugate[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Acute Myocarditis

    BACKGROUND: The aim of this study was to evaluate the diagnostic potential of a novel cardiovascular magnetic resonance (CMR) based multiparametric imaging approach in suspected myocarditis and to compare it to traditional Lake Louise criteria (LLC). METHODS: CMR data from 67 patients with suspected acute[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Lung Abscess

    Liver abscesses occurring just below the diaphragm can penetrate or perforate the thoracic cavity, resulting in lung abscess or pyothorax. Although surgical or percutaneous transpleural drainage is often required in such cases, the latter approach has some risks, including hemothorax and bronchopleural fistula[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
