What is Pneumonia?

Pneumonia Menu

Pneumonia (spelled as: new-mo-nya) is usually caused by an infection or injury or illness of the lungs and respiratory system resulting in inflammation. It can also be caused by some corrosive chemicals breathed into the stomach or toxic gases from a fire. In this illness the alveoli (round air-filled sacs responsible for absorbing oxygen) become inflamed and flooded with fluid.

Initially, when there was no antibiotic available for the treatment of pneumonia, almost one third of the people suffering from pneumonia subsequently died. Now the condition has improved a lot. Out of the 3 million people developing pneumonia each year in US, only 5 percent die now.

Types of Pneumonia

Pneumonia is classified into two categories according to the distribution in the lung:

  • Lobar Pneumonia (occurs in one lobe of the lung).
  • Bronchopneumonia (tends to be patchy).

Although, now many antibiotics are available in the market that can easily treat all the most common forms of bacterial pneumonia's, but now antibiotic-resistant strains are a growing problem. Due to this reason, it's best to try to prevent the disease in the first place rather than afterwards taking those antibiotics.
