Woodworker's lung is the name for the fibrosis associated with the chronic inhalation of pine or cedar dust. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Respiratory failure.: Respiratory failure means that the person was unable to effectively take in oxygen and get rid of carbon dioxide. This could be due to a failure in any of the respiratory system including the lungs, musculoskeletal system or even the brain, if the brain was not able to direct the rest of the body to breathe. What did the person die of? Whatever it was, it was complicated by respiratory failure. ...Read more
What kind???: There are different types of shock so the precise answer depends on the type of shock you are asking about. But, in general, shock results in an inflammatory cascade which can cause respiratory failure mainly due to the build up of acids in the blood. The acids result in the person having to increase their breathing and this can lead to fatigue making ventilator support necessary. ...Read more
See below: There are two types of respiratory failure - hypoxic where the body does not get enough oxygen, and hypercapneic, where the lungs cannot wash out the carbon dioxide. Either one can cause death. Usually, we can give supplemental oxygen or help with various machines to blow off the co2 but if the underlying lung disease cannot be reversed, that results in death. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Can being bedridden for several months lead to total cardio respiratory failure and destruction of major organs? I know it always causes DVT and PE.
Due to acidosis.,,: The metabolic acidosis causes a respiratory compensation in an attempt by the body to keep the blood ph normal. The respiratory compensation is to increase minute ventilation (both respiratory rate and volume per breath!). So, the person with severe metabolic acidosis will be breathing fast and deeply. Doing this for an extended period of time can lead to fatigue resulting in respiratory failure. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
