Pneumonia - Causes, Symptoms and Prevention

MBBS, F.E.M-RCGP(UK)
General Physician, Gurgaon
Pneumonia - Causes, Symptoms and Prevention

Pneumonia is a type of lung infection that may affect one or both lungs. In this condition, the air sacs, also known as alveoli, fill with pus or fluid, which makes it difficult to breathe. Moreover, pneumonia is known to cause inflammation in the air sacs. This disease may range from mild to life-threatening and the severity depends on the cause of inflammation, the organism fostering your infection, your age and general health. 

Symptoms:

Most common symptoms associated with the condition are:

  • Chest pain
  • Difficulty in breathing
  • Shaking chills
  • Rapid heartbeat
  • Fever
  • Rapid breathing
  • Dry cough
  • Vomiting
  • Wheezing
  • Nausea 
  • Muscle aches
  • Bluish skin tone due to oxygen deficiency 
  • Blood in sputum that is coughed up mucus
  • Labored breathing
  • Confusion 
  • High fever

Causes

  1. Bacteria: One of the most common causes of pneumonia is the bacteria named as Streptococcus pneumoniae. This type of pneumonia may occur after you have had flu or a cold or maybe even on its own. Moreover, it may affect only one part of the lung i.e. the lobe and is also known as lobar pneumonia. 
  2. Viruses: Viruses are one of the main reasons why children below 5 years of age suffer from pneumonia. Viruses that cause pneumonia may also cause cold or flu. Viral pneumonia is usually mild and may be treated at home itself. However, in some cases, it may be very severe and life-threatening. 
  3. Mycoplasmas: Mycoplasma is a type of bacteria that doesn't have a cell wall around the cell membrane which is why they are usually unaffected by most antibiotics which target cell wall synthesis. The symptoms of pneumonia caused by mycoplasmas are mild and the patient does not require bed rest. This type of pneumonia is known as 'Walking Pneumonia'. 
  4. Fungi: People with weakened immune systems or chronic health problems usually develop pneumonia due to fungi. You may also develop fungal pneumonia by inhaling large doses of it mainly found in soil or bird droppings.

Prevent Pneumonia

It is important for all of us to prevent ourselves from pneumonia and for that we can follow the below mentioned steps:

  1. Know about the symptoms of pneumonia first: It is difficult to detect or diagnose pneumonia, especially in people over the age of 65. In older patients, the common symptoms such as fever, chills, cough may not be experienced. You should watch out for non-respiratory symptoms like weakness, dizziness, delirium and confusion. It is even more difficult to diagnose pneumonia in people who are suffering from preexisting conditions.
  2. Practice good hygiene: Common respiratory Infections, influenza and cold may cause pneumonia. You should follow hygienic habits. Wash your hands regularly before meals and use hand sanitizers in order to prevent the illness from spreading. You should also maintain proper oral hygiene as several oral infections may also lead to pneumonia. You should also keep away from people who are affected by pneumonia or any other illness like flu, cold and serious diseases such as measles or chicken pox. All these factors may cause pneumonia.
  3. Get vaccinated: It is recommended for people of all ages who may be at a risk of getting pneumonia to get vaccinated and immunized against pneumonia causing virus called pneumococcal pneumonia. This is a one-time vaccine, which prevents and reduces the severity of pneumonia. A booster vaccine after every five years may also be prescribed. Elderly people should be vaccinated against all diseases which cause pneumonia.
  4. Quit smoking: Smoking accounts for being a major cause or risk factor for pneumonia. It increases a person’s chance of getting pneumonia as the lungs’ ability to defend themselves from the infection is reduced. By quitting smoking, you will be able to prevent pneumonia.
  5. Maintain a good general health: Maintaining an overall good health and following healthy habits will help you in preventing pneumonia. This is because your immune system stays strong and is able to fight efficiently against pneumonia-causing infections. A proper diet with all essential nutrients is also recommended along with regular physical exercise and proper rest.

Severe cases of pneumonia are capable of making you suffer and you may be admitted to a hospital. According to studies, it has been estimated that more than 60% of people over the age of 65 need to be hospitalised because of pneumonia. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a pulmonologist.

Hello sir. Please ensure his safety first. Do not leave him alone at any time, keep all potential harmful things, like medicines, insecticides, knives etc away from him, talk to him and try to comfort him so that he does not feel lonely. Having suicidal thoughts is alarming and he needs to see a psychiatrist to help him get out of his depression. Just asking him to come out of it won't help him as it is not on his control. He needs combination of medication and professional counseling. Take care.

Sex during 12 weeks to 28 weeks is comparatively safe unless you are specifically asked by your gynecologist to abstain in case of high risk pregnancy. In case of any personal doubts you may consult your treating gynecologist without hesitation

By doing regular masturbates I do daily I'm getting low semen and mentally weak. Memory loss.

MBBS, MCCEE, Fellowship in Sexual Medicine
Sexologist, Jaipur
By doing regular masturbates I do daily I'm getting low semen and mentally weak. Memory loss.
Masterbation, firstly is not bad but after doing so you get a guilt as to why I did it. This feeling is not there when you do intercourse. Inabout roughly 2-3 days usually you get desire to do masterbation. When you are doing daily then semen is not not sufficient so could come out in less quantity. As when you exercise you need to eat good so if you are eating normally good food you do not have any weakness. It mostly a myth that it causes weakness and most believe so. Keep good diet and do masterbation say not more than 2-3 times a week is sufficient.

I am a 62 year male. I had a urinary tract infection recently and cured with a course of antibiotics. While investigating doctor had advised a cy scan of abdomen. The report is normal except that the urinary bladder is showing a diverticula of size 15x7.5x13.8cm with a communication measuring 2.7 cm. It also shows a calculus of 2 mm there is np mass lesion in bladder or diverticulam. The diverticulum is not an acquired one my doctor is of the view that there is nothing to be anxious.

Fellowship of the Royal College of Surgeons (FRCS), MS - Urology, MBBS
Urologist, Ahmedabad
Dear , sorry my opinion is different than that of your doctor. I think that you have bladder outflow obstruction and and the diverticulum is secondary but is large with a wide mouth and 2 mm stone could pass on its own. As there is no mass in it, it is better. However I think you must have some symptoms passing urine or frequency or urgency or slow stream and scan must show increased thickness of bladder wall thickness and some postvoid residual urine. It would be immense help you can post films of the scan. Uroflowmetry would also help. I think you may get repeated attacks of uti and if so one should consider surgery of either prostate or bladder neck. Please post the details as requested.
