The clinical presentation of opioid toxicity is fairly consistent, with decreasing levels of alertness followed by respiratory depression, leading to hypoxia (decreased blood oxygenation), hypercarbia
(increased partial pressure of carbon dioxide in the blood), and hypotension.
Near-fatal asthma is acute severe asthma associated with a respiratory arrest or hypercarbia
Noninvasive ventilation was administered to the patients in cases of hypercarbic acute lung exacerbation, nocturnal desaturation and/or nocturnal hypercarbia
OSA is characterized by excessive, recurring episodes of complete or partial upper airway blockage during sleep that cause transient oxygen desaturation, hypercarbia
, and central nervous system arousal.
and/or hypoxia due to airway obstruction will exacerbate dysrhythmias.
, temporal lobe seizures) are equally impoverished as explanations of NDEs because they do not explain some central feature of a paradigmatic NDE, describe experiences that do not adequately resemble NDEs, or lead us to expect the very opposite of what the NDE data document.
2]), which enabled quick detection of hypoxemia and/or hypercarbia
secondary to atelectasis.
Subcutaneous carbon dioxide insufflation does not cause hypercarbia
during endoscopic thyroidectomy.
, low total lung capacity, and DLCO were all related to obesity, hypoventilation, and sleep disorders, she noted.
Conclusion: After interscalene blockade, we found an increase in respiratory rate and hypercarbia
that resulted in no clinically significant effect.
Its main features include an increase in body temperature caused by generalized skeletal muscle contracture, hypercarbia
, rhabdomyolysis, cardiac dysrhythmia, and renal failure.
Hypoventilation -- A persistent shallow breathing that generally results in hypoxia (decreased oxygen) and hypercarbia
(increased carbon dioxide).
