Acute-onset Breathlessness: An Unexpected Etiology?

Indian J Crit Care Med 2022 Feb;26(2):231-234

Department of Internal Medicine, Postgraduate Institute of Medical Education and Research, Chandigarh, India.

Acute-onset breathlessness has multifactorial causes where early spotting of etiology assists in prompt treatment of these cases. Other than usual causes, an often-neglected cause, especially in adults, is non-asphyxiating foreign body aspiration. Here, we describe a case of a 40-year-old male who had aspirated an organic foreign body under alcohol intoxication and presented with symptoms of acute-onset breathlessness and severe hypoxia.

Foreign Body Aspiration in Children-Diagnostic Clues through a Clinical Case.

Pediatr Rep 2022 Feb 10;14(1):81-85. Epub 2022 Feb 10.

Peditric Emergency Department, A.O.R.N Santobono-Pausilipon Santobono, 80129 Naples, Italy.

Foreign body aspiration is common in the pediatric age group, especially in males. Despite the high frequency of this potentially life-threatening event, it is not always easy to recognize it given the high variability of the clinical presentation and the potential of "pauci-symptomatic" inhalation. Moreover, a variable latency of the onset of symptoms since the moment of aspiration may be possible determining difficulties in the identification of the inhalation on an anamnestic basis.

Aspiration syndromes and associated lung injury: incidence, pathophysiology and management.

Physiol Res 2021 12;70(Suppl4):S567-S583

Biomedical Center Martin and Department of Physiology, Jessenius Faculty of Medicine in Martin, Comenius University in Bratislava, Martin, Slovakia.

Aspiration is a common condition affecting healthy or sick patients which could create an acute or chronic inflammatory reaction in the lungs. Aspiration syndromes could be categorized according to a content entering the respiratory system into bacterial aspiration pneumonia with the gastric or oropharyngeal bacteria entering, aspiration chemical pneumonitis with bacteria-freegastric acid aspiration, or aspiration of a foreign body which causes an acute pulmonary emergency. There are differences in the clinical presentation of volume-dependent aspirations (microaspiration and macroaspiration): the higher is the volume of aspiration, the greater is the injury to the patient and more serious are the health consequences (with 70 % mortality rate for hospitalized patients).
