  • pulmonary
  • Other signs include coughing up blood (hemoptysis), high blood pressure in the lung (pulmonary hypertension), heart failure, difficulties getting enough oxygen to the body (hypoxia), and respiratory failure requiring support with breathing masks, such as bilevel positive airway pressure machines or ventilators. (wikipedia.org)

  • Difficulty breathing, a cardinal symptom of left ventricular failure, may manifest with progressively increasing severity as the following: Difficulty breathing with physical activity (exertional dyspnea) Difficulty breathing while lying flat (orthopnea) Episodes of waking up from sleep gasping for air (paroxysmal nocturnal dyspnea) Acute pulmonary edema Other cardiac symptoms of heart failure include chest pain/pressure and palpitations. (wikipedia.org)
  • asthma
  • Studies have shown that people who are atopic (sensitive), already suffer from allergies, asthma, or compromised immune systems and occupy damp or moldy buildings are at an increased risk of health problems such as inflammatory and toxic responses to mold spores, metabolites and other components. (wikipedia.org)

  • Rapid influenza diagnostic tests (RIDTs) are immunoassays that can identify the presence of influenza A and B viral nucleoprotein antigens in respiratory specimens, and display the result in a qualitative way (positive vs. negative), according to CDC. (repertoiremag.com)
  • However, RIDTs have limited sensitivity to detect influenza viruses in respiratory specimens compared to RT-PCR or viral culture, and negative RIDT test results should be interpreted with caution given the potential for false negative results, especially during peak influenza activity in a community, says CDC. (repertoiremag.com)
  • Reverse Transcription-Polymerase Chain Reaction (RT-PCR) and other molecular assays can identify the presence of influenza viral RNA in respiratory specimens. (repertoiremag.com)
  • abnormal
  • In addition to the signs of acute hepatitis, people can also demonstrate signs of coagulopathy (abnormal coagulation studies with easy bruising and bleeding) and encephalopathy (confusion, disorientation, and sleepiness). (wikipedia.org)
  • opioids
  • Professor Mark Baker, director of Nice's Centre for Clinical Practice, said: ''Many people with chronic or advanced conditions will experience a high level of pain which can only be treated by opioids such as morphine as weaker forms of pain relief will no longer be effective. (telegraph.co.uk)
  • Compared to other opioids, respiratory depression and constipation are considered less of a problem with tramadol. (wikipedia.org)
  • There are suggestions that chronic opioid administration may induce a state of immune tolerance, although tramadol, in contrast to typical opioids, may enhance immune function. (wikipedia.org)
  • In palliative care, transdermal fentanyl has a definite, but limited, role for: people already stabilized on other opioids who have persistent swallowing problems and cannot tolerate other parenteral routes such as subcutaneous administration. (wikipedia.org)
  • halitosis
  • Bacteria are invisible to the naked eye, and degrees of white tongue coating are present in most people with and without halitosis. (wikipedia.org)
  • affects
  • In the United States, NASH affects about 11 million people and alcoholic hepatitis affects about 5 million people. (wikipedia.org)
  • Bad breath may also be persistent (chronic bad breath), which affects some 25% of the population in varying degrees. (wikipedia.org)
  • CF is most common among people of Northern European ancestry and affects about one out of every 3,000 newborns. (wikipedia.org)
  • Estimates suggest sepsis affects millions of people a year. (wikipedia.org)
  • include
  • Serious side effects may include seizures, increased risk of serotonin syndrome, decreased alertness, and drug addiction, A change in dosage may be recommended in those with kidney or liver problems. (wikipedia.org)
  • Symptoms of mold exposure can include: Nasal and sinus congestion, runny nose Respiratory problems, such as wheezing and difficulty breathing, chest tightness Cough Throat irritation Sneezing / Sneezing fits Infants may develop respiratory symptoms as a result of exposure to a specific type of fungal mold, called Penicillium. (wikipedia.org)
  • Signs that an infant may have mold-related respiratory problems include (but are not limited to) a persistent cough and/or wheeze. (wikipedia.org)
  • However, 3% to 6% of people given intravenous acetylcysteine show a severe, anaphylaxis-like allergic reaction, which may include extreme breathing difficulty (due to bronchospasm), a decrease in blood pressure, rash, angioedema, and sometimes also nausea and vomiting. (wikipedia.org)
  • Serious side effects may include a decreased effort to breathe (respiratory depression), serotonin syndrome, low blood pressure, or addiction. (wikipedia.org)
  • potentially
  • Severe inflammation can lead to intra-abdominal hypertension and abdominal compartment syndrome, further impairing renal and respiratory function and potentially requiring management with an open abdomen to relieve the pressure. (wikipedia.org)
  • outcomes
  • About 1% of those with an acute overdose die while chronic overdoses may have worse outcomes. (wikipedia.org)
  • Despite lower respiratory effects among all children, there was a significant difference in health outcomes between children with pre-existing conditions and children without. (wikipedia.org)
  • patients
  • In some cases, the virus appears to pass from an infected person to another person in close contact, as has previously happened among family members, patients, and healthcare workers. (rt.com)
  • Acetylcysteine protects patients with moderate chronic renal insufficiency from contrast-induced deterioration in renal function after coronary angiographic procedures, with minimal adverse effects and at a low cost" A clinical trial from 2010, however, found that acetylcysteine is ineffective for the prevention of contrast-induced nephropathy. (wikipedia.org)
  • brand name Duragesic, made by Alza Corp.) through an FTC consent agreement derailing the possibility of a monopoly in the treatment of breakthrough chronic pain by Alza Corp. In some cases, physicians instruct patients to apply more than one patch at a time, giving a much wider range of possible dosages. (wikipedia.org)
  • oxygen
  • A low partial pressure of oxygen (PaO2) suggests that a person is not getting enough oxygen, while results that are within normal range usually mean that oxygen intake is sufficient. (labcorp.com)
  • increases
  • Increased exposure increases the probability of developing respiratory symptoms during their first year of life. (wikipedia.org)
  • The same review found credible evidence that transapical TAVR probably increases the risk of death, stroke, acute kidney injury, pacemaker insertion, and slightly increased need for reintervention compared to surgical aortic valve replacement. (wikipedia.org)
  • SARS
  • Both MERS and SARS are coronaviruses-causing symptoms similar to colds in the people they infect. (gawker.com)
  • First identified in humans in 2012, in Saudi Arabia, MERS is caused by a coronavirus from the same family as the one that caused a deadly outbreak of SARS (Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome) in China in 2003. (rt.com)
  • therapies
  • Inhaled acetylcysteine has been used for mucolytic ("mucus-dissolving") therapy in addition to other therapies in respiratory conditions with excessive and/or thick mucus production. (wikipedia.org)
  • blood
  • They may be ordered along with other tests, such as electrolytes to determine if an electrolyte imbalance is present, glucose to evaluate blood sugar concentrations, and BUN and creatinine tests to evaluate kidney function. (labcorp.com)
  • Dialysis is recommended in those with kidney failure, decreased level of consciousness, blood pH less than 7.2, or high blood salicylate levels. (wikipedia.org)
  • Monitoring of biochemical parameters such as electrolytes and solutes, liver and kidney function, urinalysis, and complete blood count is undertaken along with frequent checking of salicylate and blood sugar levels. (wikipedia.org)
  • Thus, the drug will accumulate within the blood to higher-than-expected concentrations, reaching a MTC at a dose that would otherwise be considered normal for the average person. (wikipedia.org)
  • constipation
  • For example, while opioid-induced constipation may be tolerable to some individuals, other people may stop taking an opioid due to the unpleasantness of the constipation even if it brings them significant pain relief. (wikipedia.org)
