The Recurrence of Pneumonia

For the purpose of carrying out thorough and objective research on predisposing the circumstances as well as etiologic agents in individual patient having recurrent pneumonia, we effectively place about 653 immunonocompetent patients under study and the patients with the age varies from 50-85 year who had initially been cured in hospital for community-acquired pneumonia.  Following an average patient follow up period of 32-months, 11 variables were randomly selected for examination with the outlined results: death, pneumonia recurrence in addition to repeated pneumococcal pneumonia.

Meanwhile, at the time of follow up, 171 were the recorded episodes of pneumonia as evidence in 115 of the 653 patients while 52 deaths were recorded. Going by the multifaceted breakdown, it was discovered that age, male sex, congestive heart failure as well as the availability of the rest of severe illnesses were meaningfully associated with increasing mortality. It is very obvious that both age and chronic pulmonary sickness were closely linked with repeated pneumonia. Besides, the actual etiologic agents comprise of streptococcus pneumonia with26% and hemophilic influenza is 11% in addition to Moraxella catarrhalis which is 6%. We therefore finalize that pneumonia recurrences are not uncommon in average ages as well as elderly patients following the medical attention on community acquired pneumonia in the hospital. As a matter of fact, elderly patients are more risk prone in repeated basis. Similarly, those having chronic pulmonary diseases are not spared. With reference to the importance of it, influenza and M. catarrhalis discovered in the current study, the organisms of this type must ever be considered whenever you are pick the early antibiotic in patients with recurrent pneumonia.

Prevention of Recurrent Pneumonia

Of all the victims, it is generally believed that those who have been attacked at one time or the other with pneumonia are always prone to its occurrence. Many have been conditional to this attack usually every winter or recurrence of some specific circumstances of the weather.

Just mere courses will usually constraint the patients in question to be vulnerable again as long as such attack can be predicted. Basically, the general conditions must be properly received to these victims, yet the patient always fortifies their chest.

Some other auxiliary techniques include sponge baths or with many patient cool sponge baths tot eh chest. On rising in the morning that are helpful., meanwhile, the best reliable approach is to apply 3 or 4 drops of oil of turpentine on a square of loaf sugar between 3 to 4 times per day over a long time couple with the repeated preliminary cold that ideally leaves a bronchial or pneumonia difficulty.

The treatment is harmless. It is very surprising that many doctors who are supposed to have more understanding of this common solution are claiming ignorance of this internal remedy. They probably feel that just a little dose is capable of causing renal irritation.

In very rare occasion, anything below a dose of 15 drops and above being repeated will bring about renal drops irritation as well as a tendency to hemorrhage. It is very important to take a proper care of those having pneumonia as the adage used to say that prevention is better than cure. It it is prevented at the early state or when the symptom is perceived you will definitely be free of any pain you might have passed through if you were to be a pneumonia victim. Treatment does not do you any harm. They are there for assistance and tat dispensable measure to guide and direct you on what to do and how to go about it. It is highly essential.
