Pneumonia Overview
Notwithstanding the availability of potent antimicrobial drugs, pneumonia is still a major health problem. It is an infection of the lower respiratory tract that can be caused by a virus, bacteria or mycoplasma and is characteristically accompanied by cough, sputum production, fever, chills and pleuritic chest pain, all of which may be preceded by an upper respiratory tract infection. Physical examination reveals signs of consolidation of the lung parenchyma (increase tactile and vocal fremitus, bronchophony, egophony, bronchial breath sounds, fine rales over the consolidated area). Often there is also an associated pleural effusion, that can produce opposed features in physical examination (distant-to-absent breath sounds, pleural friction rubs which may fade as effusion becomes outstanding, decreased fremitus and flatness to percussion). These signs are most recurrently found with bacterial pneumonia, whereas viral and mycoplasma pneumonias present with very few signs (often, only rales are heard).

Pneumonia: New Prediction Model Proves Promising
Research Findings for Clinicians
A new clinical prediction model can help clinicians determine the most appropriate care for newly diagnosed cases of community-acquired pneumonia (CAP). The model recently was announced by a team of researchers supported through a grant from the Federal Agency for Health Care Policy and Research (AHCPR). The model stratifies patients into risk categories based on their medical history, physical examination findings, and a limited set of laboratory and radiographic results. This is a major breakthrough, since the factors used to predict risk are clearly defined and can be readily assessed at the time of patient presentation. The model also predicts other important medical outcomes, such as length of hospitalization, admission to an intensive care unit for respiratory failure or hemodynamic compromise, and time to usual activities. About 600,000 of the 4 million Americans who develop CAP each year are hospitalized. Because of a lack of evidence-based admission criteria and the tendency to overestimate the risk of death, many low-risk patients who could just as safely be treated as outpatients are instead admitted for more costly inpatient care. The investigators made projections from a prospective cohort study of 2,287 CAP patients in Pittsburgh, Boston, and Halifax, Nova Scotia. They suggest that if the model had been used, 26-31 percent of the patients who were hospitalized for care could have been treated safely as outpatients, and an additional 13-19 percent could have been hospitalized only briefly for observation. The investigators validated the model for accuracy and general applicability with data on over 50,000 CAP patients in 275 U.S. and Canadian hospitals.

LG's pneumonia drug on track
Story Tools GAITHERSBURG, United States (Reuters) U.S. advisers have backed a new antibiotic developed by South Korea's LG Life Sciences called Factive for treating a common type of pneumonia and flare-ups of chronic bacterial bronchitis. The recommendation now goes to the Food and Drug Administration, which usually follows its panels' advice. LG Life Sciences has licensed North American and European rights to privately-held GeneSoft Pharmaceuticals Inc. The FDA advisory panel voted 18-0, with one abstention, for approval for the community-acquired pneumonia indication, and 15-3, with one abstention, for approval for the bronchitis indication. Community-acquired pneumonia is defined as pneumonia acquired outside a hospital or nursing home setting.
Earlier rejection
The companies also sought approval for the indication for pneumonia resistant to current antibiotics. Panelists did not vote formally on that request, but a majority said Factive should get that claim. "I think it's very important to get this drug on the market," said panelist and Annandale, Virginia-based infectious disease specialist Donald Poretz, citing the need for more antibiotics that can defeat drug-resistant bacterial strains.

Edward Kennedy, D-Massachusetts, says Eunice Kennedy Shriver was admitted to the UCLA Medical Center in Los Angeles late Thursday night to be treated for pneumonia. His spokesman says the senator spoke to his sister on the telephone Friday. Kennedy says Shriver is in "good spirits" and that her condition is this not life-threatening. Shriver, 78, the wife of Sargent Shriver, organized the first Special Olympics for handicapped athletes in 1968. She also ran the Joseph Kennedy foundation, which funds research to prevent mental retardation and works to improve the lives of the mentally disabled.

George Jones develops pneumonia, placed back on ventilator
March 12, 1999

Web posted at: 9:17 p.m. EST (0217 GMT)
NASHVILLE, Tennessee (CNN) Country music legend George Jones has developed pneumonia and has been placed back on a ventilator as a result of critical injuries suffered in an auto wreck last weekend, a hospital spokesman told CNN. Jones, 67, remains in critical but stable condition at Vanderbilt University Medical Center. Doctors detected the pneumonia Friday morning, placed him on the ventilator to help him breathe and gave him medication to treat the pneumonia, hospital spokesman Matt Scanlan told CNN. "He is responding well to the drugs," Scanlan said. A fluid build-up in Jones' lungs is not life threatening, he said. Jones suffered a collapsed lung and a lacerated liver when his sport-utility vehicle hit a bridge abutment near his home Saturday in Franklin, a suburb of Nashville. It took two hours for rescuers to free him from the vehicle and he was then airlifted to the hospital, where he was placed on life support.

Walking (a) Pneumonia
Background The lungs have two major components that are crucial to the respiration process:
  • Air conducting tubular passages (the bronchi and their branching smaller bronchioles.) The air exchange microscopic chambers (the alveoli)
  • The respiratory gases , oxygen and carbon dioxyde (the latter being the waste product of breathing) are exchanged back and forth, between the air in the alveoli and the blood circulating within the minute blood vessels present in the ultra-thin walls of the air chambers. It clearly follows that normal respiration requires not only free passage of air into the air-chambers but also thin, unencumbered alveolar walls that can permit easy diffusion of the respiratory gases in and out of the circulating blood in the lungs. The pneumonias Pneumonias are infections of the lungs, in which the offending organism (i.e. bacteria, viruses, molds or other micro-organisms) trigger a substantial defense response. This defensive response , called inflammation, mobilizes to the infected organ , millions of microscopic fighters ( white blood cells) that attack and actually swallow the foreign invaders. The trouble is that like in real wars, even friendly armies can create problems, and in the case of the pulmonary infections, the inflammatory cells may either:

    Dr. Sanjay Gupta: Pneumonia more serious in older patients
    98-year old comedian Bob Hope is responding well to treatment for pneumonia and could be released from the hospital "in a few days," his doctor said Wednesday. CNN Medical Correspondent Dr. Sanjay Gupta joined Leon Harris to discuss the impact of Hope's age on his illness. LEON HARRIS: All right, let's get right to it. How does age factor into this? DR. SANJAY GUPTA: Right. Exactly, it's to say what might be a mild infection in you or me, Leon, could be a very serious infection in someone like Bob Hope. The specifics are that when you get older a few changes take place in your body. One is that it's harder for you to fight infections. Your immune systems don't work as well. Your heart may not work as well, and as you know, your heart pumps blood from your lungs to the rest of your body. So, fluid might actually build up in your lungs. That can be a place where infection can start. MORE STORIES Bob Hope hospitalized for pneumonia Finally, you may not cough as well. You don't have enough strength in your upper chest and stuff like that. I always tell my parents, in addition to working out the lower body, make sure to work out the upper body as well so you don't run into that problem.

    Health Information
    Fight Flu and Pneumonia
    What What is the Flu? How Serious is it? Influenza, also called the "flu," is a highly contagious respiratory infection.
    • Symptoms.
      Flu can cause fever, chills, headache, dry cough, runny or stuffy nose, sore throat, and muscle aches. Unlike other common respiratory infections such as the common cold, influenza can cause extreme fatigue lasting several days to more than a week. Although nausea, vomiting and diarrhea can sometimes accompany influenza infection, especially in children, gastrointestinal symptoms are rarely prominent. The illness that people often call "stomach flu" is not influenza.
    • Spread from person to person.
      Influenza is spread easily from person to person primarily when an infected person coughs or sneezes. After a person has been infected with the virus, symptoms usually appear within 2 to 4 days. The infection is considered often contagious for another 3 to 4 days after symptoms appear. Because of this, people used to think the flu was caused by the "influence of the stars and planets." In the 1500s, the Italians called the disease "influenza," their word for influence. Each year, an estimated 10 to 20 percent of the population contracts influenza.

    Hustler's Flynt hospitalized with pneumonia
    In this story:
    LOS ANGELES (CNN) Hustler magazine publisher Larry Flynt, whose paying for information about the private lives of politicians sparked national controversy, was hospitalized with pneumonia after winning a conditional delay in a pornography trial because of planned surgery. Flynt was admitted to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles on Wednesday after X-rays showed the pneumonia, said one of his lawyers, Alan Isaacman. A spokesman for the hospital said he had been instructed not to release any information about Flynt. But a spokesman for the publisher said on Thursday he was "doing fine. His prognosis is excellent." "He came down with some bronchial problems that they thought was the flu, and had an X-ray and it turned out it was pneumonia in both lungs," Isaacman said. "I think they're just treating him with antibiotics."

    Each year, close to 4 million episodes of community-acquired pneumonia occur in the United States, about 500,000 of them necessitating hospitalization. In the vast majority of cases, patients are seen initially by a primary care physician in an office setting, an urgent-care facility, or an emergency department. When evaluating a patient who has a lower respiratory tract infection, the first question a physician asks himself or herself is whether the patient has pneumonia. This question cannot be answered adequately without a chest radiograph; physical examination simply is not sensitive enough to detect the difference between pneumonia and an exacerbation of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.
