Resumen

CABELLO A., HERNÁN; MANIEU M., DENISE  y  RUIZ C., MAURICIO. RESPIRATORY DISORDERS IN PREGNANCY. Rev. chil. enferm. respir. [online]. 2003, vol.19, n.3, pp.160-165. ISSN 0717-7348.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0717-73482003000300004.

The pregnant woman has physiological changes such as hyperventilation and dyspnea. Some pulmonary complications can be unnoticed if signs and symptoms are mild and they can be confused with normal changes. Exacerbations of asthma can cause maternal and / or fetal morbility and mortality and their treatment is similar to that of non pregnant woman. Community-acquired pneumonia seems not to be different from non pregnant woman in bacterial aetiology or clinical presentation, but there are a lot of options in antibiotic treatment with some restrictions. Finally, pulmonary embolism is uncommon, but can produce maternal mortality related to pregnancy and the use of oral anticoagulants is contraindicated

Palabras clave : pregnancy; asthma; community-acquired pneumonia; pulmonary embolism.
