1 10/24/2014 November 12, 2011, has been proclaimed World Pneumonia Day.
2 Fluid and pus filled air space contains bacteria
3 Who Gets Pneumonia? Anyone can get pneumonia, but some people are at a higher risk than others. Risk factors include: Cigarette smoking Recent viral respiratory infection—a cold, laryngitis, influenza, etc. Difficulty swallowing (due to stroke, dementia, Parkinson's disease, or other neurological conditions) Chronic lung disease such as COPD, bronchiectasis, or cystic fibrosis Heart disease, liver cirrhosis, or diabetes Living in a nursing facility Impaired consciousness (loss of brain function due to dementia, stroke, or other neurologic conditions) Recent surgery or trauma Having a weakened immune system due to illness, certain medications, and autoimmune disorders
Community-acquired Pneumonia (CAP) was the 4 th leading cause of death in the world in 2012 according to the WHO and 6 th leading cause of death in the U.S. It’s a Inflammation of one or both lungs. What Causes Pneumonia? The infection may be bacterial, viral, fungal. Pneumonia is extremely contagious Pneumonia can be a serious and life-threatening infection. This is true especially in the elderly, children, and those who have other serious medical problems, such as COPD, heart disease, diabetes, and certain cancers. 4 Pneumonia
7 Pneumonia confirmed by chest X-ray testing. (dense white patch) CT scan With pneumonia, sputum is sometimes bloody Sputum Gram Stain and culture Pulse oximetry Routine lab testing – CBC BMP (basic metabolic panel) LFTs ABG (arterial blood gas) Diagnosis of Pneumonia
