  • Harrison's Internal Medicine Part 2. Cardinal Manifestations and Presentation of Diseases Section 6. Alterations in Gastrointestinal Function Chapter 33. Dyspnea and Pulmonary Edema Dyspnea The American Thoracic Society defines dyspnea as a "subjective experience of breathing discomfort that consists of qualitatively distinct sensations that vary in intensity. The experience derives from interactions among multiple physiological, psychological, social, and environmental factors, and may induce secondary physiological and behavioral responses.

  • Integration: Efferent-Reafferent Mismatch A discrepancy or mismatch between the feed-forward message to the ventilatory muscles and the feedback from receptors that monitor the response of the ventilatory pump increases the intensity of dyspnea. This is particularly important when there is a mechanical derangement of the ventilatory pump, such as in asthma or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).

  • Approach to the Patient: Dyspnea (Fig. 33-3) In obtaining a history, the patient should be asked to describe in his/her own words what the discomfort feels like, as well as the effect of position, infections, and environmental stimuli on the dyspnea. Orthopnea is a common indicator of congestive heart failure, mechanical impairment of the diaphragm associated with obesity, or asthma triggered by esophageal reflux. Nocturnal dyspnea suggests congestive heart failure or asthma.

  • Distinguishing Cardiovascular from Respiratory System Dyspnea If a patient has evidence of both pulmonary and cardiac disease, a cardiopulmonary exercise test should be carried out to determine which system is responsible for the exercise limitation. If, at peak exercise, the patient achieves predicted maximal ventilation, demonstrates an increase in dead space or hypoxemia (oxygen saturation below 90%), or develops bronchospasm, the respiratory system is probably the cause of the problem.

  • Although dyspnea is a common symptom, there has been only limited investigation of its prognostic significance among patients referred for cardiac evaluation. methods We studied 17,991 patients undergoing myocardial-perfusion single-photon-emission computed tomography during stress and at rest. Patients were divided into five categories on the basis of symptoms at presentation (none, nonanginal chest pain, atypical angina, typical angina, and dyspnea).

  • Differential Diagnosis Dyspnea is the consequence of deviations from normal function in the cardiopulmonary systems. Alterations in the respiratory system can be considered in the context of the controller (stimulation of breathing); the ventilatory pump (the bones and muscles that form the chest wall, the airways, and the pleura); and the gas exchanger (the alveoli, pulmonary vasculature, and surrounding lung parenchyma). Similarly, alterations in the cardiovascular system can be grouped into three categories: conditions associated with high, normal, and low cardiac output (Fig. 33-2).

  • Mechanisms of Dyspnea Respiratory sensations are the consequence of interactions between the efferent, or outgoing, motor output from the brain to the ventilatory muscles (feed-forward) and the afferent, or incoming, sensory input from receptors throughout the body (feedback), as well as the integrative processing of this information that we infer must be occurring in the brain (Fig. 33-1). A given disease state may lead to dyspnea by one or more mechanisms, some of which may be operative under some circumstances but not others. ...

  • Distinguishing Cardiogenic from Noncardiogenic Pulmonary Edema The history is essential for assessing the likelihood of underlying cardiac disease as well as for identification of one of the conditions associated with noncardiogenic pulmonary edema. The physical examination in cardiogenic pulmonary edema is notable for evidence of increased intracardiac pressures (S3 gallop, elevated jugular venous pulse, peripheral edema), and rales and/or wheezes on auscultation of the chest.

  • Pulmonary embolism is a serious, potentially life-threatening cardiopulmonary disease that occurs due to partial or total obstruction of the pulmonary arterial bed. Pulmonary embolism constitutes 5-25% of in-hospital deaths, and mortality is decreased from 30% to 8% with early treatment. Therefore, risk factors should be identified and treatment should be planned to decrease the risk of mortality. Clinical findings, routine laboratory data, electrocardiogram, chest X-ray, and arterial blood gases are not sufficient to diagnose or rule out pulmonary embolus.

  • Death and Dying The most common causes of death in patients with cancer are infection (leading to circulatory failure), respiratory failure, hepatic failure, and renal failure. Intestinal blockage may lead to inanition and starvation. Central nervous system disease may lead to seizures, coma, and central hypoventilation. About 70% of patients develop dyspnea preterminally. However, many months usually pass between the diagnosis of cancer and the occurrence of these complications, and during this period the patient is severely affected by the possibility of death. ...

  • Dyspnea is the subjective sensation of uncomfortable or difficult breathing. Most patients report dyspnea as "shortness of breath." Patients report dyspnea when their breathing is excessive for the activity that they are doing. The sensation of dyspnea is produced by stimulation of both central and peripheral receptors that monitor respiratory muscle activity, hypoxia, hypercapnia, acid-base status, airway irritation, and changes in the pressure volume characteristics of the lung (i.e., j receptors in lung fibrosis or emphysema).
