Pneumonia symptoms and treatment

What is pneumonia?

Pneumonia is an infection of the lung tissue, that is, of the tiny air sacs found in the lungs.

Infection in these air sacs impairs the body's ability to deliver oxygen to the various organs.

Pneumonia is caused by bacteria or viruses (viruses). Also rarely, a viral disease such as the flu can later cause bacterial pneumonia.

Symptoms of pneumonia: Fever, Chills, Cough, Shortness of breath, Chest pains 

If there are members of the household suffering from immunosuppression, it is recommended that they not come into contact with the patient.

Today, a treatment of only 5 days is recommended for pneumonia - if the course of the disease is normal and it is not accompanied by complications.
