    Pneumonia is an infection of the lungs, resulting in the air sacs become inflamed and fill up with phlegm and pus, and sometimes even fluid.
    The quickest and fastest way to diagnose pneumonia is through a chest X-ray - where white hazy patches may show up in the lung fields.
    A variety of organisms, including bacteria, viruses, and fungus, can cause pneumonia. COVID-19 is one of the organisms.
    Symptoms of pneumonia may vary from individual to individual.
    They include cough, phlegm production, shortness of breath, fever with chills, chest pain, in severe cases or in elderly patients, even confusion and drowsiness. Please see your doctor if you are suffering from the above symptoms as pneumonia can be potentially fatal.

    Pneumonia is a very serious condition.
    In Singapore, Pneumonia is the second most common cause of death after cancer. World health organization (WHO) estimates that between 250,000 to 5 million people die of pneumonia from influenza annually.
    In fact, pneumonia accounts for about 15% of all deaths of children under 5 years old!
    Some of the common causes of pneumonia include
    1) virus infection: such as influenza, respiratory syncytial virus ( RSV ), the current feared COVID-19 virus, rhinovirus
    2) bacterial infection such as streptococcus pneumonia, chlamydia, and mycoplasma pneumonia, legionella, tuberculosis
    3) & less commonly, fungal infection

    Risk factors of getting pneumonia includes
    - elderlies older than 65
    - children 5 years or younger
    - smokers
    - patients with chronic lung conditions like asthma, chronic obstructive lung disease, or heart diseases
    - patients who are hospitalized
    - patients who have weakened immune systems like HIV patients, or patients who are on chemotherapy or post organ transplant.

    So then, how can we prevent ourselves and others from getting pneumonia?
    1) make sure you get vaccinated against the pathogens that can cause pneumonia. I will discuss more vaccinations later on
    2) practice good hygiene by regularly washing your hands and sanitizing your hands and to wear masks and rest at home if you are having cough and flu symptoms
    3) stop smoking
    4) keeping your immune system strong: by getting enough sleep, exercising regularly, and eating a healthy diet.

    Can vaccines help prevent pneumonia?
    With the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic - The covid-19 vaccine significantly lowers our chance of catching the virus.
    So please get it done if you do not have contraindications to it - please watch my video on the Covid 19 vaccine and the side effects of the covid 19 vaccines to learn more about the contra-indications.
    And in doing so, vaccines can prevent pneumonia caused by COVID-19.

    Some of the other vaccines that may help prevent pneumonia includes
    1) influenza vaccine: which is typically done yearly - click on the link above to find out more about influenza.
    2) Hemophilus influenza vaccine
    3) pertussis vaccine
    4) pneumococcal vaccines

    For children born and living in Singapore,
    They routinely receive the 5-in-1 vaccines before they are 1 year of age - this vaccine will protect the children against Hemophilus influenza and pertussis.
    We would also strongly encourage children less than 5 and seniors older than 65 to get their flu vaccine and the pneumococcal vaccines.
    Please consult your family physician to find out more about it!
    In fact, these vaccines are heavily subsidized and in the appropriate age groups may even be free!

    The treatment of pneumonia, in general, depends on the severity of the infection.
    For patients who are very sick, they have to be admitted to the hospital and receive Intravenous antibiotics and supportive treatment like supplementary oxygen and close monitoring.
    For others, we may treat them outpatient with oral antibiotics and see them regularly to assess their improvement and eventual recovery.

    In essence, do recognize that pneumonia is very common, especially in the very young and elderly.
    It can be treated and recovery is often complete.
    See your doctor early if you have symptoms of pneumonia, especially in light of the on-going COVID-19 pandemic.

  • What is COVID pneumonia and can young people get it?


    Conjoint Professor at UNSW Medicine and respiratory disease expert Christine Jenkins says COVID pneumonia happens when the virus invades the lungs and causes an inflammatory reaction that compromises the function of the lung.

    Young people are more likely to get asymptomatic COVID-19 – where the virus infects the body but does not show symptoms. And while they have shown to recover quicker from COVID-19, they are not immune to developing COVID-19 pneumonia.

    All 3 of these have overlapping symptoms. And COVID cases are already starting to increase in the US with the cold weather, which is just the beginning of the 2nd surge that everyone is talking about. COVID, flu, and common colds are all caused by viruses.

    Mentioned Videos:
    Airborne Transmission -
    Long Haulers COVID -
    Pulse Oximeter for COVID -
    Rapid Antigen Test for COVID -

    These tiny infectious agents can survive only by getting inside the cells of animals or humans. There are more than 200 different viruses that can cause the common cold. The most common viruses that cause common colds are rhinoviruses and different types of covid viruses. For example, COVID is caused by a specific type of covid called SARS-CoV-2. The specific virus that causes infection and how your body’s immune system responds to the virus determines the symptoms and severity of illness.

    The main way that these viruses spread from person to person are through the tiny droplets that sick people propel when they cough, sneeze or talk. These droplets can fly six feet or more in the air, and they can spread the virus if they deposit on someone’s mouth or nose or they get inhaled into a person’s lungs. The novel covid, meaning SARS-CoV-2, is aerosolized and can travel up to 27 feet in aerosolized form. That is something I talk more about in a separate video Colborne transmission. With COVID, an infected person doesn’t need to show symptoms to spread the virus.

    About 40% of viral transmission happens before infected people show symptoms. After people are infected, if they develop symptoms, it can be for several days or their illness duration. And about 1/3rd of people with COVID never develop symptoms. You're contagious with the common cold the entire time you have symptoms, but you’re most contagious right after you catch the infection before you have symptoms. You’re most contagious with the flu from the day before your symptoms start until about the fifth day of symptoms.

    It’s important to stay home with any of these illnesses when you or your child is most infectious. Viruses also spread through physical contacts like kissing or shaking hands, or when a person touches a surface (like a desk or doorknob) that has accumulated droplets from a sick person and then touches their own eyes, mouth, or nose. Viruses can live on surfaces for hours to days, although how long they remain intact and infectious depends on the virus, the surface, and the environment.

    COVID is a real wild card here. There can be no symptoms, or it can be similar to the common cold. Or it can be similar to the flu. But it can also cause loss of smell, so that is somewhat of a unique symptom. And it becomes concerning when people develop shortness of breath, which is a result of pneumonia developing. So although both flu and COVID can cause pneumonia, COVID is more likely to do so.

    With COVID, it can take anywhere from two to 14 days after exposure to the virus for symptoms to appear. On average, it's 5 days. And that is if people do develop symptoms. Another unique aspect of COVID is that symptoms can start out mild or even improve temporarily and worsen. Some people continue to have fatigue and other symptoms for months after their infection, the so-called “long haulers.”

    Why do some people get so sick with COVID? With COVID, the death rate ranges from 10% to 27% in people ages 85 and older but is less than 1% in those ages 54 and younger. One reason for this disparity may be differences in the aging immune system.

    1- a high temperature
    2- a new, continuous cough
    3- a loss or change to their sense of smell or taste

  • 7 Signs Youve Had a Lung Infection Without Knowing


    Did you test positive for a Lung Infection without knowing it? Watch this video to find out.
    ????Lung Infection Signs Without Knowing [Full Guide] ➜ ➜ ➜

    ▪ Herbs for Lung Health ➜ ➜ ➜
    ▪ Vegetables for Healthy Lungs ➜ ➜ ➜

    ???? Here are the signs to look for that may indicate that you're been infected without realizing it:

    ➡️ A Cough That Won't Go Away
    The coughing mechanism is how your body gets rid of particles in the respiratory tract. During most lung infections, inflammation and mucus build-up occurs in the airways of the lungs which makes it more difficult to breathe. Your body triggers a cough response in order to get rid of the foreign materials in your lungs, allowing you to take in more air and breathe more freely.

    ➡️ Fever
    A fever can occur for many reasons, but it's most commonly seen when the body is fighting an infection. The average body temperature is 98.6°F (37°C) but it can fluctuate some, usually with warmer temperatures occurring later in the day. In general, some individuals will have a higher baseline temperature than others, but when a lung infection is present, it can increase as high as 105°F (40.5°C).

    ➡️ Weakness and Fatigue
    Weakness and fatigue are two of the most common signs of a lung infection. That is because, fighting off an infection takes energy from your body that you may have a difficult time manufacturing because the body is ill. Running a fever, battling with an infection, and a general feeling of unease can leave anyone feeling tired and a bit weak.

    ➡️ Shortness of Breath
    Shortness of breath is a symptom that occurs in most lung infections and can remain after other symptoms have gone away. This is likely due to inflammation that has occurred in the airways of the lungs. Shortness of breath can happen when performing activities that you can normally do pretty easily, such as walking to the mailbox or going up a flight of stairs.

    ➡️ You Have Suffered Through a Bad Cold
    Because the symptoms of a cold virus are so similar to the flu virus, some medical professionals initially have a difficult time distinguishing between the two. Regardless, both the flu and common cold can result in the occurrence of a lung infection. Bacterial infections may also occur after a viral infection because of the disruption of bacteria in the lungs.

    ➡️ Hair Loss
    According to the Academy of Dermatology, the body loses 50-100 strands of hair per day. In the case of a lung infection, this number of strands lost per day will be increased. Telogen effluvium is a condition in which hair loss occurs after a stressful experience, as seen with an illness.

    ➡️ Loss of Taste or Smell
    It may come to you as a surprise, but a very large percentage of people who have tested positive for a lung infection will experience a loss of taste and/or smell. This is because certain viruses can affect the olfactory cells in the upper nasal cavity which directly affects your ability to smell.

  • Why is pneumonia so dangerous? - Eve Gaus and Vanessa Ruiz


    Explore how pneumonia attacks the tiny air sacs in your lungs and how your immune system works to fight off the infection.


    Every time you breathe, air travels down the trachea, through a series of channels, and then reaches little clusters of air sacs in the lungs. These tiny sacs facilitate a crucial exchange: allowing oxygen from the air we breathe into the bloodstream and clearing out carbon dioxide. Pneumonia wreaks havoc on this exchange system. Eve Gaus and Vanessa Ruiz detail how pneumonia attacks the lungs.

  • Untreated sleep apnea leads to pneumonia in Covid-19: Dr Manoj Singh, Apollo Hospital, Abad


    Covid-19 has shown us, as a chest specialist, that, it is one of the independent predictors of development of severe Covid pneumonia. Because any severe sleep apnea patient will have a very bad upper airway tone. So, we have seen many patients getting pneumonia in Covid-19, landing up in the ICU.

    Pneumonia is a common infection of the lungs affecting mostly the microscopic air sacs – the alveoli.
    The function of the respiratory system is to exchange oxygen and carbon dioxide between the body and the environment. This process takes place in the alveoli of the lungs. Inhaled oxygen moves from the alveoli into the blood in the capillaries while carbon dioxide relocates from the blood to the alveoli to be exhaled out of the body. In people with pneumonia, these air sacs are filled with fluid or pus, hindering the gas exchange process, resulting in difficulty breathing and a cough reflex. Other symptoms may include chest pain, fever, chills and confusion.
    Pneumonia is not a single disease. A large number of various organisms can cause pneumonia. Bacterial pneumonia is the most common, with Streptococcus pneumoniae being the main culprit. Viral pneumonia is more common in young children. A variety of viruses are implicated with each of them predominating in different times of the year.
    Pneumonia commonly starts as an infection of the upper respiratory tract - a cold or flu, which then spreads to the lungs. The most common routes of transmission are through inhalation of contaminated aerosol droplets and aspiration of oral bacteria into the lungs.
    The setting in which pneumonia develops is an important information as it helps to identify the source of the causative agent and hence the treatment approach. Generally, community-acquired pneumonia is less dangerous than health care-associated, hospital-acquired, or ventilator-associated pneumonia. This is because an infection contracted outside health care facilities is less likely to involve multidrug-resistant bacteria. Patients who are already in hospitals are also most likely to have other health problems and weakened immune system and are thus less able to fight the disease.
    Pneumonia is often diagnosed based on physical exams and a chest X-ray. Clinical assessment for children is primarily based on a rapid respiratory rate, a cough, presence of lower chest wall indrawing, and the level of consciousness. Adults are usually checked for vital signs and presence of chest crackles – the rattling noise coming from a diseased lung.
    Bacterial pneumonia is treated with antibiotics. The choice of antibiotics depends on the patient’s age, health conditions and how the infection was acquired. Viral pneumonia caused by influenza viruses may be treated with antiviral drugs. Hospitalization may be required for severe cases with breathing difficulty, especially for young children, the elderly, and those with other health problems.

  • Doctor demonstrates breathing technique for coronavirus patients


    A doctor at Queen’s hospital has demonstrated a breathing technique to help coronavirus patients with respiratory symptoms. Dr Sarfaraz Munshi initially recorded the video for his friends and family, but it went viral after being posted YouTube, reaching more than 3M views.

    The technique involves taking five deep breaths in, holding your breath each time for five seconds. On the sixth deep breath, do a big cough. Repeat that cycle once. Then, lay flat on your front and breath slightly deeper for then minutes.

    There is no scientific evidence to suggest this technique helps coronavirus patients, but it is recommended by the Director of Nursing at Queen’s Hospital.

    Author JK Rowing tweeted that the video helped her recover after she displayed symptoms of Covid-19.

  • What are the early symptoms of Omicron variant of COVID-19? Heres what one doctor has seen


    Dr. David Winter at Baylor, Scott & White in Dallas said some early symptoms of Omicron variant are different than other variants of COVID-19.

    The ultra-contagious omicron mutant is pushing cases to all-time highs and causing chaos as an exhausted world struggles, again, to stem the spread. But this time, we're not starting from scratch.

    Vaccines offer strong protection from serious illness, even if they don't always prevent a mild infection. Omicron doesn't appear to be as deadly as some earlier variants. And those who survive it will have some refreshed protection against other forms of the virus that still are circulating — and maybe the next mutant to emerge, too.

    We've produced an updated version of this video that you can watch here:

    In this video, you will learn about the symptoms associated with COVID-19. They are quite a bit different from a regular cold. The disease seems to start with a fever, followed by a dry cough.

    Around 80% of confirmed cases are mild and can stay home whereas 20% are more severe and need inpatient care.

    We also discuss a paper published in the respected journal The Lancet that describes the clinical course of 99 cases hospitalized for SARS-CoV-2 associated pneumonia.
