Tutor description

The inflammation of the lung parenchyma (the respiratory bronchioles and alveoli) is known as Pneumonia. Frequently, it is described as lung parenchyma/alveolar inflammation and abnormal alveolar filling with fluid. The alveoli are microscopic air-filled sacs in the lungs responsible for absorbing oxygen from the atmosphere. Pneumonia can result from a variety of causes, including infection with bacteria, viruses, fungi, or parasites, and chemical or physical injury to the lungs. Pneumonia often classified as community acquired, nosocomial (hospital acquired), or opportunistic. The most common causative organism for community acquired pneumonia is Streptococcus pneumoniae (also called pneumococcus), a gram- positive bacterium. This organism causes 70% to 75% of all diagnosed cases of pneumonia.
