First with antibiotics prescribed by a health care professional. You can use anti-inflammatory fever reducers such as Acetamenophen or Ibuprofen. Do not use aspirin in anyone teenage or younger due to risks of Reye's disease.
S. pneumoniae reproduces through a mechanism known as binary fission. It involves the cell copying it's genetic material then splitting in two by a ring of proteins called the FTsZ ring.
They both cause infectious diseases of the respiratory system.
Your entire arm? No. The spot where the needle was, yes.
What killed him is uncertain. Although he had spent all of the Thursday out inspecting his farm stock in hail, freezing rain and snow. Then, reportedly, not changing out of his wet clothes for supper.
Yes there is! According to what causes it pneumonias are classified into viral,bacterial and even fungal....the symptoms,location etc all depend on what organism is causing it...
Pneumonia caused by an infection with an encapsulated bacteria.
If you are in a high-risk group, get the annual influenza vaccines. Do not overexert yourself in cold or damp weather, eat a proper diet, and get prompt medical care for coughing or breathing difficulties.
It is a confined infection.
Pneumonia is a inflammation in the lungs due to foreign substances entering the respiratory system, such as chemicals or bacteria related substances. A pneumonia ward is a ward where this is treated with anti biotics.
The worst kind of pneumonia is the Viral type. This is where the virus has to run through your body until it ends compared to bacterial pneumonia which can be treated with antibiotics and medication.
No, not directly. However, pneumonia is a common complication of the flu. So if you avoid the flu with a vaccination, then you can't get the flu complication of pneumonia (which could be viral, like the flu, or could be bacterial). There is a vaccine against bacterial pneumonia that you can take in addition to the influenza vaccine, as well. Now (in April) is a bit late for most places in the Northern Hemisphere to… Read More

If you live in a place that has a lot of rain you could get it but it's not common.
Superimposed pneumonia means that a person was initially diagnosed with pneumonia but then contracted some sort of infection. This most likely occurred because of a weakened immune system and a predisposition to infection because of the pneumonia.
Yes, but generally only while the symptoms are at their worst. Be careful to cough into your arm and wash your hands regularly.
Pneumonia is a serious disease, however it is more serious for elderly people and for those whose overall physical conditions are not good before they catch it. Preventive measures are very important in order to keep pneumonia at bay.
it is a ailments.
You should try things that you are very fond of. Proteins are good and plenty of liquids like Gator Aid.
Most healthy persons can walk distances with a cough, unless the person has bronchitis or pneumonia or another chronic ailment. However, cold air can make breathing more difficult.
Normal side effects of the pneumonia shot is swelling and soreness at the area the shot was given. If you have concerns about an allergic reaction, you should consult your physician!
how did i get infected with left nasal pneumonia
Many people only need ONE shot to last them a lifetime. Some people may need a booster shot. It is best to discuss this with your physician!
It may just be your girlfriend who is not wanting to go to the doctors. You can take her to a clinic and have a doctor look at her there. If she refuses then there isn't much you can do about making her go. It is very unusual for parents to not let their child see a doctor so be careful as to whether your girlfriend is telling the truth about her parents actions.
Aids doesn't cause pneumonia. You can die from pneumonia with or without aids. However if you have aids you are more likely to die from pneumonia then if you didn't have aids and contracted pneumonia
Antibiotics are indicated where the inflammation threatens the blood vessels, and could be spread. Bed rest and avoiding very cold air, smoke, chemical fumes, animal dander, dust, and anything that could worsen the inflammation or lead to pneumonia. Inhalation therapy is often used where fluid is already forming inside the lungs or where the breathing passages are being blocked.
Yes, in fact, it is recommended for people age 65 and over by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The risk of serious illness or death from the pneumococcal bacteria that the vaccine helps to prevent in that age group is much higher than the risk of any problems with the vaccination (very low occurrence rates). See the CDC link in the related links section below for more about the vaccine and administration… Read More
They can for a little while if it's mild but if your baby has it bad I wouldn't.
False, if the organism is viral the patient is given supportive care, such as antipyretics, fluids, and oxygen, until the immune system can control the spread of the virus.
Chlamydial pneumonia refers to one of several types of pneumonia that can be caused by various types of the bacteria known as Chlamydia.
a group of diseases in which there is an above normal number of eosinophils in the lungs and blood.
a temporary infiltration of eosinophils into the lungs. The patient will feel tired, have a cough, spasms of the bronchial airway, and difficulty breathing. Loffler's pneumonia will clear spontaneously
The survival rate of pneumonia is generally very high--more than 99% survive--but it is still a leading cause of death in the very old, the very young, the chronically ill, and in developing countries.
Yes, it can be without proper treatment to both!
The elderly have a less effective mucociliary escalator, as well as changes in their immune system. This causes this age group to be more at risk for the development of pneumonia
In addition, bacterial contamination of nebulizer and humidification systems can occur, possibly leading to the spread of pneumonia.
Obviously not, directly. However, on a cold day, a considerable loss of body heat can occur from an uncovered head on a cold day, especially if your hair is wet and this heat loss can lower ones resistance to flu or other potentially fatal illness. Of course the lack of a hard hat or other protective head-gear where appropriate can lead to death from head injuries.
Pneumonia may be treated with antibiotics if the cause is bacterial. There are medications that will combat the Orthomyxoviridae (influenza) family of viruses, if that is the cause. Otherwise, bedrest and fluids will usually allow the body's immune response to clear the infection. In severe cases, oxygen or artificial respiration may be required.
One of the complications of influenza is secondary pneumonia, it may be either viral pneumonia or it could be bacterial pneumonia taking advantage of the weakened state of the host.
Pneumonia is a very serious condition that should be treated by a physician. If you don't want to do that, you may treat the symptoms by taking pain relievers, cough syrup, and decongestants such as Mucinex, but you are putting yourself at risk of getting seriously ill. See a doctor if at all possible.
Pneumonia is a serious lung infection caused by either bacteria, a virus, or fungi. It is characterized by fever, cough, shortness of breath. Sputum (thick mucous) ranging from clear to yellow to dark green may be coughed up. Diagnosis of the type is by sputum sample, blood tests and chest x-ray. Pneumonia can be mild to severe, but in all cases the patient must be seen by a qualified medical professional so that appropriate treatment… Read More
It could be caused be a simple cold
It is worldwide.... Different types are in different places.
it was named in 1930
Yes. all you need is to get medication from a doctor that can cure you. but you must get it fast.
Types according to causative agent: Bacterial Viral Fungal Parasitic Irritation/Inhalation/Allergic - caused by inhalation of caustic substances, particles, smoke, chemicals and gases, illicit drug use, etc. (although this type should really be called pneumonitis to indicate the pneumonia is an inflammatory response of lung tissue instead of infectious pneumonia.) Pneumonia can also be typed according to how it was acquired: Community acquired Aspiration Healthcare-associated Hospital-acquired Ventilator-related pneumonia Finally, it can be typed according to the… Read More
Yes, you can go outside while you have pneumonia although it would not be a good idea because you can make your self more vulnerable to sicknesses. So if you can try to stay in a warm and safe place and if you can only go out side if you have to like going to you car so you can drive to the hospital.
Don't smoke. (period)
yes you can, just dunk your testicles into a vat of ice cream for 22.45 seconds precisely and you will wake up the next morning with pneomonia. Hope this was helpful!
No, coughing helps prevent it.
pneumonia: disease characterized by inflammation of the lung parenchyma (excluding the bronchi) with congestion caused by viruses or bacteria or irritant. it can be harmful if its not treated . you can treat it by medicine and rest. it can take up to a week or several weeks to cure pneumonia
I believe you mean Mycoplasma.No,it doesn't.
It depends on what is causing your sickness. If it is an infection, and/or you have a fever, then you should wait until the fever subsides and all acute symptoms of infection are gone. The best answer for you will come from your own health care professional, what might be safe for another person may not be safe for you, so contact your doctor to get an answer that is individualized for you and your… Read More
Secondarily, yes. Molds can cause upper respiratory infections, which can develop into pneumonia. Also, depending on where you live, molds can harbor a deadly fungus (c. Gatti) that can cause pneumonia. The symptoms are similar to typical pneumonia, but it will not respond to antibiotics because it is not caused by a bacteria but a fungus, so different drugs must be used to treat it. If caught early enough, it can be cured. Most of… Read More
All of the different flu viruses that we see in flu season are similar to the H1N1/09 pandemic swine flu, it is just one that is very easily spread from human to human. If you mean viruses other than influenza viruses, then there are different strains of viral pneumonia that would be very similar in symptoms to the more severe swine flu cases.
cuz ur a nob
Yes, it's called aspiration pneumonia.
The best way is to contact a vet.
bibasilar airspace disease is a process in which there is a filling of the base or the lower segment of the inferior lobe of both lungs.
Airborne, Waterborne, Body Fluids
It takes a long time for the lung tissue to heal after pneumonia. The white mucus is not a symptom of infection but rather the healing process. If the mucous changes to more yellow or green then you may want to consult your doctor.
Fever Cough Shortness of breath Sweating Shaking chills Chest pain that fluctuates with breathing (pleurisy) Headache Muscle pain Fatigue
Pneumonia is a condition that attacks the lungs, there are two kinds, viral and bacteria, they are both very painful and need to be treated by a physician
No. Pneumonia is a dysfunction of the lungs and is most commonly caused by infection, going outside while sweaty will not damage your lungs in this way.

It is possible but unless you have a known lung disease or have had other serious symptoms and trouble breathing, it is unlikely. You should, however, contact your health care professional for advice for your specific health history. Often when people cough up thick and partially dried strands of mucus that can be streaked with fine red lines of blood after a cold or flu, they describe it as looking like flesh or pieces of… Read More
Some bacterial cells are surrounded by an extracellular slime layer called a capsule or glycocalyx. This structure can play a protective role for certain pathogenic bacteria such as streptococcus pneunoniae. The capsule prevents phagocytic white blood cells from engulfing and destroying this bacterial pathogen, enabling the organism to invade the lungs and cause pneumonia. The capsule is also a means for many bacteria to attach to solid surfaces in the environment.
Kleb pneumo is a bacteria. It is opportunistic and may be the cause of a bacterial infection. A bacterial culture would be sufficient to detect it and depending where it is, it may or may not be significant.
Pneumonia spread through air. The patient of pneumonia cough out the millions of bacteria. Some of them are inhaled by the people nearby. This may cause pneumonia in them. This inhalation of bacteria is preventad by use of surgical mask by other people. Thus use of surgical mask prevents spread of pneumonia.
On Nov. 22, 1963, President Kennedy was shot and killed while riding in a motorcade in Dallas, Tex
Some people get Pneumonia when they have just gotten over a cold. It sometimes starts off as a cold/flu and gets worse. Here's a site that may help: in the related source link below. Also, temperature has nothing to do with it. People with asthma, COPD, smokers are more likely to get pneumonia. Pregnant women are also more susceptible to pneumonia. Also having the flu, plus getting a bacteria such as Klebsiella can cause pneumonia… Read More
Clarissa "Clara" Harlow Barton died of pneumonia at the age of 90 in Glen Echo, Maryland She died on April 12, 1912 in Glen Echo, Maryland at the age of 91 from complications of a cold. She was buried back at Oxford, MA. she got very sick, back in 1912 she had no meds. she died of drowning to pneumonia.
She died on April 12, 1912 in Glen Echo, Maryland at the age of 91 from pneumonia. She was buried back at Oxford, MA. If my math is correct and she was born December 25, 1821 and died April 12, 1912, she would have been 90 when she died (she would have been 91 on December 25, 1921, but in April, she was still 90).
About 98% is normal, no matter what a person's age is.
This is entirely dependent on the cause of a person's pneumonia. If they have pneumonia caused by a virus or an infectious bacteria (such as the bacteria responsible for pneumonic plague), then those pathogens can be transmitted via respiratory droplets produced by the diseased person. If their pneumonia is not caused by an infectious pathogen (e.g., aspiration pneumonia), then you cannot catch it from them.
Im 15 (nearing 16) and since i got RSV when i was young ive gotten pneumonia every year.
It depends on the severity and age of the person. I had pneumonia when I was pregnant with my daughter almost 10 years ago and I made it out just fine. There are lots of treatments available for pneumonia. Hope I've helped!

You have 3 lobes on the right side and 2 lobes on the left (with a little bitty middle lobe in between on the left). When you have left lower lobe pneumonia it is at the base of your left lung. When you have bilateral pneumonia it is on both sides of the chest (right and left lungs), but it could be in any lobes(most commonly at the bases).
To find out, he took a culture of these cells, heated the bacteria to kill them, and injected the heat-killed bacteria into the mice.
It is found in the nasopharynx region of the human body
Pneumonia is an infection of the lungs. Dogs can and do contract pneumonia and it is a very serious condition. Dogs in general have difficulty in fighting off pneumonia and may die or sustain permanent lung damage. They may develop pneumonia as a result of a simple viral infection, that is, a cold, and many veterinarians prefer to treat colds with antibiotics, knowing that they will not affect the course of the primary infection but… Read More
if untreated, can be dangerous.
PNEUMONIA is not a bacteria, it is a condition in which the lungs are inflammated. The condition can be caused by mold, viruses, common bacteria, fungi, and in extremely rare occurrences, rickettsia.

Well that was from nov-jan. Now I get these odd sharp back pains that go into the left side of my chest, shortness of breath… Read More
No, systemic candidiasis is a scam. Labs and practitioners charge money to do tests on various samples and they invariably report positive results. They then sell expensive treatments. There is no evidence for any of it. My suggestion is that if you are tempted by some of these ads that you first send a test sample of some kind. See if they report it as negative.
This is no longer an accepted treatment for fever or infectious disease as it used to be. Years ago this was an accepted way to lower a temp of an infant or child. Please note: this is no longer accepted. Alcohol fumes could overcome or kill a child. To reduce fever in a child (dangerous high fever) use only a tepid bath (water a couple degrees below body temperature which would feel cool to your… Read More

The immune system can become less effective with age, and health problems which can increase with age can lead to the development of other health problems. Spending a lot of time in bed or resting can lead to a further depleted immune system, as can eating problems such as reflux which can lead to aspiration pneumonia. If you have older people of concern to you, try to keep them moving more, even if it's only… Read More
Care Management needs to take five directions: * Palliative measures * identification of the pneumonia * treatment of the pneumonia * underlying causal factors and their treatment * overall patient condition. After two days I assume you've run sputum and blood cultures as well as a CBC, etc., and started a course of levofloxacin and/or gentamycin, and found the results to be less than sterling. I will also assume you're tested negative for LRE. So… Read More
