Complaints of bacterial, viral, and fungal pneumonia

Bacteria such as Streptococcus pneumoniae and Haemophilus influenzae are responsible for the disease of pneumonia in humans.

It infects the alveoli (air-filled sacs) of the lungs, and the alveoli get filled with fluid leading to severe problems in respiration. 

The symptoms of pneumonia include fever, chills, cough, and
headache, fast breathing, and in severe cases, the lips and fingernails may turn gray to bluish in color. 

The infection transmitted through inhaling the droplets/aerosols released by an infected person or even by sharing glasses and utensils. 

 Pneumonia Definition

The term pneumonia has a broad meaning, which includes the number of microbial diseases of the bronchial tubes and lung tissue.

Pneumonia is a disease in the upper respiratory tract, usually spread by respiratory droplets or contact with another carrier (infected person).

Viral infections, allergic reactions, malnutrition, excessive smoking, or decreased immune system, increase the risk for the patient.

Lung inflammation occurs in pneumonia. This is a condition that mainly affects alveoli (air accumulation of lungs). It is caused by infection with viruses or bacteria and less commonly by other microorganisms, some drugs.

Pneumonia is an infection in the lungs. It is most commonly spread by bacteria called Streptococcus. In this infection, one or both lung tissue (alveolar walls) gets filled with pus or water and swelling occurs. Due to this, cough, fever, and trouble in breathing start due to mucus or pus.

The entire lobe of the lung is involved, it is called lobar pneumonia. If both sides are infected, it is called double pneumonia. Scattered patches of infection in the bronchial tube cause bronchogenic.

 sign and symptoms of pneumonia

  • Difficulty in breathing;
  • The breath may be rapid and shallow;
  • Fast bangs;
  • fever;
  • Sweating and shivering;
  • loss of appetite;
  • Chest pain;
  • Blood during cough;
  • headache;
  • Fatigue;
  • Nausea;
  • Vomiting, and
  • Wheezing.

what Cause of pneumonia

Pneumonia is mainly caused by infection by bacteria, viruses, and usually fungi and parasites.

Bacterial pneumonia,

The bacterium is the most common cause of community-acquired pneumonia with Streptococcus pneumoniae. In about 50% of cases, other isolated bacteria include Haemophilus influenzae, Chlamydophilia, and Mycoplasma pneumoniae. Gram-positive diplomas are known as pneumococcus.

Viral pneumonia,

Various viruses include rhinoviruses, coronaviruses, influenza viruses, and parainfluenza.

Fungal Pneumonia,

It is most often caused by Histoplasma capsulatum, Blastomyces cryptococcus neoformans, Pneumocystis gerovici, and Coccioedus emits.

Pneumonia Diagnosis

Bacteria can be identified by stripping them of mucus and testing for alpha-hemolysis on blood agar. The organism is also identified by explaining the reaction.
