Why would pulse and respiratory rate increased during a severe asthma attack?

Why would  pulse and respiratory rate increased during a severe asthma attack?

Low oxygen...: During an asthma exacerbation the body is trying to get enough oxygen via the blood to all critical organs. So, by increasing the respiratory rate, more oxygen can enter the body via the lungs. By increasing the heart rate, more blood can be circulated so more oxygen can be delivered. Both are compensation mechanisms the body uses to insure adequate oxygen delivery. ...Read more

Could pulmozyme (dornase alfa) use result in increased respiratory rate in non-cf patient with a tracheostomy?

Could pulmozyme (dornase alfa) use result in increased respiratory rate in non-cf patient with a tracheostomy?

Maybe: Side effects with Pulmozyme (dornase alfa) are various and can include irritation of the throat, nose and voice changes. It can also cause hoarseness. I use a fair amount in my patients and have not seen it increase respiratory rate. I guess if it was irritating the airway you could breath faster due to pain/discomfort. I don't think that increased resp rate is very common on this drug. ...Read more

What respiratory rate is acceptable for a 6y.O. Trachee at rest (seated)?Work of breathing always fairly high. Best usu 24 but not lately.

Depends on baseline: Everyone has a baseline rate, which his rate is on a day to day basis, especially when not ill. A 6 year old can be between about 15 and 30. (if the child is always healthy, any baseline rate in that range should be ok). However, if a child's baseline increases a lot, over a few days to months, one needs to ask why, such as infection, heart disese, tummy distention, low o2, high co2, etc... ...Read more
