Oxygen Respiratory Distress Side Effects

Oxygen Respiratory Distress Side Effect Reports

The following Oxygen Respiratory Distress side effect reports were submitted by healthcare professionals and consumers.

This information will help you understand how side effects, such as Respiratory Distress, can occur, and what you can do about them.

A side effect could appear soon after you start Oxygen or it might take time to develop.

Cardiac Failure, Localised Infection, Oedema Peripheral, Pulmonary Oedema, Respiratory Distress

This Respiratory Distress side effect was reported by a consumer or non-health professional from US. A 85-year-old patient (weight:NA) experienced the following symptoms/conditions: NA. The patient was prescribed Oxygen (dosage: NA), which was started on NS. Concurrently used drugs:
  • Paxil
  • Coumadin (warfarin Sodium)
When starting to take Oxygen the consumer reported the following symptoms:
  • Cardiac Failure
  • Localised Infection
  • Oedema Peripheral
  • Pulmonary Oedema
  • Respiratory Distress
These side effects may potentially be related to Oxygen.
Pneumomediastinum, Subcutaneous Emphysema, Laryngospasm, Lobar Pneumonia, Respiratory Distress

This Respiratory Distress Oxygen side effect was reported by a physician from US on May 24, 2013. A male , 16 years of age, was diagnosed with and was treated with Oxygen. The patient presented the following health conditions:
  • Pneumomediastinum
  • Subcutaneous Emphysema
  • Laryngospasm
  • Lobar Pneumonia
  • Respiratory Distress
. Oxygen dosage: 4 Once A Minute Respiratory?8 Once A Minute Respiratory. Additional drugs used at the same time:
  • Nitrous Oxide
  • Propofol
  • Fentanyl
Paracentesis, Abdominal Cavity Drainage, Respiratory Distress, Pulseless Electrical Activity, Hepatic Cirrhosis, Malnutrition, Oesophagogastroduodenoscopy, Gastritis Erosive, Biliary Cirrhosis Primary

This is a Oxygen side effect report of a female patient (weight:NA) from JAPAN, suffering from the following symptoms/conditions: NA, who was treated with Oxygen (dosage:NA, start time: Jan 19, 2010), combined with:
  • Furosemide
  • Famotidine
  • Epoprostenol Sodium
  • Spironolactone
  • Tracleer (62.5 Mg, Bid)
  • Sildenafil Citrate
  • Ferrous Citrate
, and developed a serious reaction and a Respiratory Distress side effect. The patient presented with:
  • Paracentesis
  • Abdominal Cavity Drainage
  • Respiratory Distress
  • Pulseless Electrical Activity
  • Hepatic Cirrhosis
  • Malnutrition
  • Oesophagogastroduodenoscopy
  • Gastritis Erosive
  • Biliary Cirrhosis Primary
which developed after the beginning of treatment. The patient was hospitalized. This side effect report can indicate a possible existence of increased vulnerability to Oxygen treatment in female patients suffering from NA, resulting in Respiratory Distress.

Device Failure, Cardiac Failure Congestive, Respiratory Distress

A 62-year-old female patient (weight: NA) from UNITED STATES with the following symptoms: NA started Oxygen (oxygen) treatment (dosage: NA) on Apr 14, 2011. Soon after starting Oxygen (oxygen) treatment, the consumer experienced several side effects, including:
  • Device Failure
  • Cardiac Failure Congestive
  • Respiratory Distress
. Concurrently used drugs:
  • Tyvaso (192 Mcg (48 Mcg, 4 In 1 D), Inhalation)
  • Revatio
The patient was hospitalized. This finding indicates that some patients can be more vulnerable to developing Oxygen (oxygen) side effects, such as Respiratory Distress.
Cardiac Failure Congestive, Device Breakage, Respiratory Distress

A female patient from UNITED STATES was prescribed and started Oxygen (oxygen) on Nov 23, 2011. Patient felt the following Oxygen side effects: cardiac failure congestive, device breakage, respiratory distress Additional patient health information: Female , 62 years of age, weighting 174.4 lb, The consumer reported the following symptoms: . Oxygen (oxygen) dosage: NA. Concurrently used drugs:
  • Tyvaso (192 Mcg (48 Mcg, 4 In 1 D), Inhalation)
  • Revatio
The patient was hospitalized.
Localised Infection, Multiple Myeloma, Angina Unstable, Abnormal Sensation In Eye, Asthenia, Cerebrovascular Accident, Hypercalcaemia Of Malignancy, Respiratory Distress

This report suggests a potential Oxygen Respiratory Distress side effect(s) that can have serious consequences. A patient from UNITED STATES (weight:NA) was diagnosed with the following health condition(s): NA and used Oxygen (dosage: NA) starting Nov 02, 2006. Soon after starting Oxygen the patient began experiencing various side effects, including:
  • Localised Infection
  • Multiple Myeloma
  • Angina Unstable
  • Abnormal Sensation In Eye
  • Asthenia
  • Cerebrovascular Accident
  • Hypercalcaemia Of Malignancy
  • Respiratory Distress
Drugs used concurrently:
  • Atenolol (100 Mg, Unk)
  • Advair Diskus 100/50 (Unk)
  • Fluoxetine (2 Capsules Daily)
  • Prednisone
The patient was hospitalized. Although Oxygen demonstrated significant improvements in a number of clinically relevant cases, troublesome symptoms, such as Respiratory Distress, may still occur.

Oxygen Respiratory Distress Causes and Reviews

Respiratory failure happens when not enough oxygen passes from your lungs into your blood. Your body's organs, such as your heart and brain, need oxygen-rich blood to work well. Respiratory failure also can happen if your lungs can't remove carbon dioxide (a waste gas) from your blood. Too much carbon dioxide in your blood can harm your body's organs.

Diseases and conditions that affect your breathing can cause respiratory failure. Examples include

  • Lung diseases such as COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease), pneumonia, pulmonary embolism, and cystic fibrosis
  • Conditions that affect the nerves and muscles that control breathing, such as spinal cord injuries, muscular dystrophy and stroke
  • Damage to the tissues and ribs around the lungs. An injury to the chest can cause this damage.
  • Drug or alcohol overdose
  • Injuries from inhaling smoke or harmful fumes

Treatment for respiratory failure depends on whether the condition is acute (short-term) or chronic (ongoing) and how severe it is. It also depends on the underlying cause. You may receive oxygen therapy and other treatment to help you breathe.

Mon, 15 Feb 2010

I am using home Oxygen levels between 1 and 2. I am having bad headaches, stomach pains, and leg pains. When I am not using the Oxygen I dont have the horrible headaches. Once I use the oxgyen again i have the headaches. I feel as if I dont need the Oxygen. Everytime I go to the doctor for check ups my levels are low between 78 and 84. Is there any that I should do or tell my doctor.

I have a friend that has currently been treated with steriods and is on Oxygen 24/7 and her gums appear sunburn and are peeling is this a side affect of the O2?

Sun, 13 May 2012

My husband has been on Oxygen for the last 21 months, and soon after, began getting a raspy voice, and it seemed hard for him to talk and breath. He only uses it at night. Recently he had to be hospitalized, and while there his normal sounding voice came back ( he was on Oxygen there as well 24/7). After being home for 5 days, he lost his voice, and it is slowly coming back a little bit. The Dr.s' have no clue, even though they both know he is still on the Oxygen. My husband has been told that he really doesn't need the Oxygen anymore, but he chooses to remain on it at night. He has recently been using a bottle filled with water that is hooked inline on the concentrator.

While using Oxygen (24/7) during the past six weeks I have become hoarse. I've now ceased the Oxygen therapy but my hoarseness persists. Is this normal or how long should I expect it to continue?
