Adult respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) is a severe lung condition that occurs when fluid fills up the air sacs in your lungs. Common symptoms include labored breathing, fever, fast pulse, and blue skin or nails.
A lung abscess is a bacterial infection that occurs in the lung tissue. The infection causes tissue to die, and pus collects in that space.
When an infant is born prematurely, the lungs may not have time to fully develop. This can lead to a variety of immediate breathing disorders.
Pneumonia is an infection of the lungs. General symptoms include chest pain, fever, cough, nausea, and difficulty breathing. Blue skin, high fever, and bloody mucus are serious signs.
Gastrointestinal (GI) bleeding is a sign that there is a problem in your digestive tract. Your digestive tract consists of the following organs: esophagus stomach small intestine large intestine or colon rectum anus GI bleeding can occur in any on...
A pancreatic pseudocyst is a collection of tissue and fluids that forms on your pancreas. It's usually not dangerous unless it ruptures.
Pleural effusion, also called “water on the lung,” is an excessive buildup of fluids between your lungs and chest cavity. There is always a small amount of liquid on the outside of your lungs. This fluid works to coat the membranes tha...
Orthostatic hypotension (also called postural hypotension) is a sudden fall in blood pressure that occurs upon standing quickly.
Hypotension is the medical term for low blood pressure. Low blood pressure is good in most cases, but it may lead to fatigue, dizziness, or even loss of consciousness. It can be a symptom of an underlying condition.

The oxygen-rich air you breathe circulates inside your lungs through a vast network called the bronchial tree. From here, oxygen enters the bloodstream and continues to the heart, as well as to various organs and tissues in the body. A collapse of...
Inside your kidneys are small tube-shaped structures that remove salt, excess fluids, and waste products from the blood. When these tubules are damaged or destroyed, you develop acute tubular necrosis (ATN). The damage may result in acute kidney f...
