  This study describes the clinical, paraclinical characteristics and pathogens of pneumonia in children with pneumonia at the Pediatric Department, Bach Mai Hospital from January to June Community acquired pneumonia (CAP) is an acute infection of the lung parenchyma acquired outside of the hospital or less than 48 hours after hospital admission. CAP is classified into typical and atypical subtypes, differentiated by their presentation and causative pathogens. This illustration focuses on the classic features of typical CAP.

Hospital-acquired pneumonia (HAP) is defined as pneumonia occurring at least 48 hours after hospital admission, excluding any infection incubating at the time of admission. 1 Ventilator-associated pneumonia (VAP) is a particular subgroup of HAP for which the incidence, etiology, investigation and outcome are somewhat different. VAP is excluded from this chapter and is discussed in Practice. 1. Analyze the development and classification of pneumonia infection. 2. Evaluate the epidemiology and risk factors of community-acquired pneumonia. 3. Identify etiological factors of community-acquired pneumonia, including pathogens most commonly associated with infection in adults and children. 4.

Abstract. Lower respiratory infections are the major cause of death due to infectious disease in the United States and worldwide. Most forms of community-acquired pneumonia (CAP) are treatable, and there is consensus that the selection of antimicrobial agents is notably simplified if the pathogen is defined.   “The main purpose of this book is to give physicians who care for patients at risk for nosocomial pneumonia a concise and up-to-date reference and management guide, and I would say the book succeeds in that task. It is a concise, well-referenced overview.

Top; Key points Hypoxaemia is a key element in pathogenesis, diagnosis, and prognosis of ventilator-associated pneumonia (VAP). Aspiration of secretions from the airway is the main source of infection for VAP in mechanically-ventilated (MV) patients, and infection develops when bacteria overwhelms the host’s defences.

Prevention care bundles reduce the incidence of VAP, as well as MV Author: Jordi Rello. Streptococcus Pneumoniae: Molecular Mechanisms of Host-Pathogen Interactions provides a comprehensive overview of our existing knowledge on Streptococcus pneumoniae antibiotic resistance, dissemination, and pathogenesis, including immunology.

It presents a state-of-the-art overview of the implications of existing data, along with the areas of research that are important for. The severe form of acute lower respiratory tract infection that affects the pulmonary parenchyma in one or both lungs is known Pythogenic pneumonia.

book pneumonia. It is a common disease and a potentially serious infectious disease with considerable morbidity and mortality. Pneumonia is the sixth leading cause of death and the only infectious disease in the top ten causes of death in the United : Parul Pahal, Sandeep Sharma.

Pathogens vary by age, but viruses are the most common cause of CAP in children aged ≤5 years, especially in the absence of lobar pneumonia and pleural effusion.

However, a pathogen cannot be identified in 14%–23% of children with CAP, even with extensive testing. More effective pathogen identification will improve our understanding of.

pneumonia is a lancet-shaped, gram-positive, facultative anaerobic organism that typically occurs in pairs or short chains. Encapsulated S. pneumonia is pathogenic for humans, and the capsular polysaccharide is the basis for which the organism is classified.

As ofa total of 92 separate serotypes have been isolated. Introduction. Community-acquired pneumonia (CAP) is a major cause of hospitalization and death worldwide.

Its annual incidence ranges from –10 per 1, persons in European countries (), –12 per 1, persons in the US (2,3) and – per 1, persons in Japan (2,3).CAP can be caused by bacteria, viruses, fungi and parasites etc. Pneumonia caused by Klebsiella species frequently involves necrotic destruction of alveolar spaces, the formation of cavities, and production of blood-tinged sputum.; The clinical manifestations of pneumonia caused by K.

pneumoniae are similar to those seen in community-acquired ts may present with a cough, fever, pleuritic chest pain and shortness of breath. The various microbial causes of community-acquired pneumonia (CAP) and hospital-acquired pneumonia (HAP) are each sensitive or resistant to different antibiotics.

Unfortunately clinical, chest X-ray (CXR) and laboratory features do not allow accurate identification of the microbial cause in an individual patient. Empirical antibiotic therapy is usually commenced at patient presentation based.

Abstract. Community-acquired pneumonia causes large numbers of hospital admissions each year. Although the incidence varies greatly in different geographic and socioeconomic settings, in the United States it has been found to cause 10–15 cases perpopulation annually, predominating in the very young and the elderly.

This book offers an essential overview of aspiration pneumonia, and focuses on four major aspects: epidemiology, pathophysiology, new preventive strategies and the trending topics.

This book also includes detailed findings and insights into critical issues for the treatment. Chlamydia pneumoniae is a bacteria that is most commonly known for causing colds and pneumonia. However, researchers have recently found a link between C. pneumoniae and atherosclerosis, a clogging of the arteries that causes heart attack and stroke.

In addition, ongoing research is showing that certain strains may play a role in asthma, multiple sclerosis, Alzheimer's disease, and arthritis. Bacterial pneumonia is caused by a pathogenic infection of the lungs and may present as a primary disease process or as the final coup de grace in the individual who is already debilitated.

For example, a historical review of the influenza pandemic suggests that the majority of deaths were not a direct effect of the influenza virus, but. Pneumocystis is a fungus that causes a diffuse, interstitial pneumonia in immunocompromised individuals. This chapter discusses the epidemiology and pathogenesis and diagnosis of Pneumocystis infection, along with the immunologic defenses that are typically protective in an immunocompetent host.

Mycoplasma hyopneumoniae is the cause of mycoplasmal pneumonia of swine, often known as enzootic pneumonia. It is a common, chronic, usually nonfatal disease of young pigs. The disease may be endemic, or spread slowly but progressively through a facility over the course of weeks, and the morbidity rate may be as high as %.

Ventilator-associated pneumonia (VAP) is a pulmonary infection that appears after 2 days of endotracheal intubation and when invasive mechanical ventilation is used. VAP is considered the most common nosocomial infection in the intensive care unit (ICU) and presents high morbidity and mortality rates, principally when caused by multi-resistant bacteria.

Community-Acquired Pneumonia (CAP) refers to pneumonia acquired outside of hospitals or extended-care facilities, and is distinct from Nosocomial or hospital-acquired pneumonia, which is a separate disease entity. It is one of the most common respiratory infections and presents one of the major health problems today, with an incidence that ranges from eight to fifty cases per thousand.

Pneumonia may be acquired by intrauterine (e.g. transplacental hematogenous, ascending from birth canal), intrapartum (e.g aspiration) or postnatal routes (e.g.

hematogenous, environmental). The pathogens include mainly bacteria, followed by viruses and fungi which induce an inflammatory pulmonary condition (1,8). Pneumonia is still a global health concern with high mortality rate, mainly among children under 5 years and adults over 65 years.

In addition to pathogen virulence, immunoevasion capacity, and drug resistance ability, risk factors for the patient include aging, comorbidities, malnutrition, and all causes affecting the immune system. The extent to which environmental disorders affect the.

Pneumonia occurs most often in children younger than 3 years of age, as in bronchiolitis, the RSV virus are involved (50%), as well as the parainfluenza 1 and 3 virus (25%), other viruses participate with lower percentages.

In elderly influenza A virus is the most important agent in causing severe pneumonia with high mortality rates, Figure 3. Streptococcus pneumoniae remains a significant cause of morbidity and mortality worldwide.

It causes a variety of diseases, ranging from mild otitis media to invasive disease, including sepsis and meningitis. Colonization of the nasopharynx is a prerequisite for invasive pneumococcal disease and also an important step in the development of antimicrobial resistance.

Worldwide, there is growing concern about the burden of pneumonia. Severe community-acquired pneumonia (CAP) is frequently complicated by pulmonary and extra-pulmonary complications, including sepsis, septic shock, acute respiratory distress syndrome, and acute cardiac events, resulting in significantly increased intensive care admission rates and mortality rates.The book has been divided into three sections according to the types of respiratory pathogens.

The first section contains reviews on the most common and epidemiologically important respiratory viruses, such as influenza virus, severe acute respiratory system coronavirus, and recently discovered Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus.
