Oxygen Respiratory Failure Side Effects

Oxygen Respiratory Failure Side Effect Reports


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

This information will help you understand how side effects, such as Respiratory Failure, 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.

  • Hypercapnia
  • Depressed Level Of Consciousness
  • Respiratory Failure
  • Bronchopneumonia
These side effects may potentially be related to Oxygen.

Respiratory Failure, Interstitial Lung Disease

This is a Oxygen (oxygen) side effect report of a 74-year-old female patient (weight:NA) from UNITED STATES, suffering from the following symptoms/conditions: NA, who was treated with Oxygen (oxygen) (dosage:NA, start time: Jan 28, 2011), combined with:
  • Letairis
  • Tyvaso (216 Mcg (54 Mcg,4 In 1 D),inhalation, 324 Mcg (54 Mcg,6 In 1 D), Inhalation)
, and developed a serious reaction and a Respiratory Failure side effect. The patient presented with:
  • Respiratory Failure
  • Interstitial Lung Disease
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 (oxygen) treatment in female patients suffering from NA, resulting in Respiratory Failure.

Respiratory Failure

A 55-year-old patient (weight: NA) from TURKEY with the following symptoms: NA started Oxygen treatment (dosage: NA) on NS. Soon after starting Oxygen treatment, the consumer experienced several side effects, including:

  • Tracleer (62.5 Mg, Unk)
This finding indicates that some patients can be more vulnerable to developing Oxygen side effects, such as Respiratory Failure.

  • Sildenafil Citrate
  • Cytarabine (Unk)
  • Tracleer (62.5 Mg, Bid)
The patient was hospitalized. Although Oxygen demonstrated significant improvements in a number of clinically relevant cases, troublesome symptoms, such as Respiratory Failure, may still occur.

Oxygen Respiratory Failure 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.
