Pneumonia

Pneumonia is when swelling (inflammation) occurs in the tissue of one or both lungs, it is most commonly caused bacterial infection.

At the end of the breathing tubes in your lungs are clusters of tiny air sacs. If you are suffering from pneumonia, the tiny sacs in your lungs become inflamed and fill up with fluid. At first the symptoms of pneumonia will resemble that of a cold or flu and then gradual develop into a high fever with chills, and cough with phlegm.

Common symptoms of pneumonia include:

  • A cough – which may be dry, or produce thick yellow, green, brown or blood-stained mucus (phlegm)
  • Chest pain – which gets worse when breathing or coughing
  • Difficulty breathing – your breathing may be rapid and shallow, and you may feel breathless, even when resting
  • Rapid heartbeat
  • Fever
  • Feeling generally unwell
  • Sweating and shivering
  • Loss of appetite

Complications of pneumonia are more common in young children, the elderly and those with pre-existing health conditions, such as diabetes.

Those who have an increased risk of developing pneumonia are:

  • People with a weakened immune system – for instance as a result of a recent illness, having HIV or AIDS, having chemotherapy, 
  • People with other health conditions, such as asthma, cystic fibrosis, or a heart, kidney or liver condition
  • Elderly people
  • Babies and very young children
