All You Should Know About Pneumonia


All You Should Know About Pneumonia

There’s more common infection than you think. It causes more than one million hospitalizations each year, and more than 50,000 deaths. It is an infection in one or both of your lungs which causes inflammation and build-up of fluid. It can be causing oxygen exchange issues. Here’s what you ought to know about this dangerous illness.

The chances of getting pneumonia can be substantially reduced.

Each year, get a flu shot to help prevent seasonal influenza. Flu is a common cause of pneumonia and flu avoidance is a good way to reduce the risk. Additionally, those at risk may get a pneumococcal pneumonia vaccine.

Anyone can get pneumonia.

While some people are at greater risk than others, pneumonia may happen to anyone. The signs include fatigue, wheezing, cough, chills, rapid breathing, chest pain, loss of appetite and malaise, or a general sense of weakness or sickness.

Pneumonia can have more than 30 different causes.

There are many germs that can cause infection, such as bacteria, viruses, and fungi. Understanding the cause of pneumonia is significant, as treatment for it depends on its cause.

It can be deadly.

It can be serious, and can lead to death. The risks include respiratory failure, sepsis and lung abscess and are more likely to affect older adults, young children, those with a weakened immune system and those with other medical problems.

Good health habits can fight pneumonia.

Washing your hands, having a healthy diet, getting adequate rest, exercising regularly and not smoking are all activities that can help you get sick from bacteria, viruses and other causes of respiratory diseases. Good health habits also promote quick recovery when you become sick.

Symptoms:

The symptoms can be mild to life-threatening. They can include:

  • coughing that may produce phlegm (mucus)
  • fever
  • sweating or chills
  • shortness of breath that happens while doing normal activities or even while resting
  • chest pain that’s worse when you breathe or cough
  • feelings of tiredness or fatigue
  • loss of appetite
  • nausea or vomiting
  • headaches

It triggers a number of infectious agents. Many cases can be treated without complications, with proper recognition and care.

Stopping your antibiotics early can cause the infection to fail to clear completely for bacterial infections. That means your pneumonia can return. Antibiotic stoppage early may also lead to antibiotic resistance. Infections which are resistant to antibiotics are harder to treat.

With at-home care, viral infection typically recovers within one to three weeks. You may need antivirals, in some cases. Antifungal medications treat fungal pneumonia, and may require longer treatment times.

Visit a Doctor at the earliest if you notice any symptoms or are concerned about possibilities of infection.

CHOOSING THE RIGHT HOSPITAL

Choosing the Right Hospital

Think about the last time you bought an automobile or a major appliance. Have you done your homework? Have you compared the functionality, the promises and the costs? 

Just think about the last time you went to hospital, or a member of your family. You probably didn’t even know that you could have had a preference. And you are unable to compare programs or efficiency, because there are few resources to help you select the best treatment. 

That is what Leapfrog is shifting. They will help you find the best possible care for you and your family by publicly sharing important safety and quality information. And we’re helping hospitals achieve the best possible care for their patients by making consistency the standard of health care.

Are not all hospitals identical?

For brief, no. Patient safety and high quality are top priorities in some hospitals. Effective health care teams are minimizing infection rates, setting up checks to prevent errors and maintaining effective lines of communication between hospital staff, patients and families. But certain hospitals are trailing behind. In addition, medical errors are the country’s third-leading cause of death, exceeding the number of deaths caused by car accidents, breast cancer and HIV / AIDS.

Which means it’s important that choosing the right hospital with a good track record to keep its patients safe from harm. The Leapfrog Hospital Safety Standard grades hospitals on the very basics of medical care, such as handwashing, the entry of medications via a computer, and the availability of trained nurses. But patient safety should be the number one priority, no matter the reason for a hospital visit.

Anything else you need to know?

  • See how the hospital measures mortality rates of certain high-risk operations when you or a family member needs surgery.
  • If you’re pregnant, find out how the hospital is treating high-risk deliveries on maternity care metrics such as C-sections.
  • If you’re worried about a parent or family member who is seriously ill, look at ICU staffing procedures and how the hospital avoids accidents and harmful infections.

Benefits of a Specialty Hospital

Patients at specialty hospitals have access to extraordinary expertise, resources and therapy programs that aren’t often available at general rehabilitation centers. Specialty hospitals often have years of experience treating individuals with spinal cord injuries (SCI) and traumatic brain injuries (TBI). These dedicated facilities have patient and family support programs designed for SCI and TBI patients and the staff at specialty hospitals know how to help families navigate complex SCI/TBI care at an emotionally challenging time.

And an obvious fact  is that multi specialty Hospitals Offer Better Outcomes as specialty hospitals put together a custom team of physicians, therapists and caregivers, every patient’s plan is designed with unprecedented expertise.

Here are a few Benefits of Choosing the Right Hospital

  • High-quality, focused professional personnel. 
  • Peer assistance from other hospitalized patients. 
  • Programs targeted for patients and families. 
  • Further opportunities for participating in research studies. 
  • Treatment coverage not available in most recovery facilities. 
  • Specialized support over the long term.

And another obvious fact is that Prasad Hospitals has been proving its capabilities over the years and marking its presence as the best multi specialty hospital in Hyderabad, through state of the art facilities, world-class doctors, advance medical procedures & Research Programmes & on the whole successful & happy outcomes.

Life after Knee Ligament (ACL) Surgery

Tips to come back to Sports once a Knee Ligament (ACL) Surgery.

An Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) sprain or tear is one of the most severe traumatic knee injuries in sports. The ACL is the main ligament that helps stabilize the knee joint. Athletes and recreational enthusiasts of all ages can experience an ACL tear, particularly those involved in high-demand sports such as tennis, soccer, volleyball, and basketball. After surgery, athletes appear to be very anxious to return to the sport they enjoy. To help them return safely to their sport with minimal risk of recurrence

For an Athlete after ACL return to sport guidelines and criteria, several short-term trials, whether using hamstrings or patellar tendon grafts, have shown good to excellent knee performance after reconstruction. The same research also shows that in the first year most patients (65–88%) were able to return to sport.

Evidence suggests that an athlete is likely to retear an ACL 30%, 20% on the contralateral side, and 10% on the same leg. Upon returning to play after an ACL-Reconstruction.

Here are the top four things to consider,

1. Timing isn’t everything

The most common question of them all is, how long after Knee Ligament Surgery can you return to sports?

Ten years ago, many patients were discharged from physical therapy in around three months, then released by their physician to return to play at the six-month mark. Instead of time-based criteria, evidence suggests more objective criteria. Educating patients from the primary day of post-op a couple of criteria-based come to play rather than returning right at the six-month post-op mark can facilitate them have realistic expectations.

2. Hop testing alone is NOT enough

A recent article has been published stating that hop testing alone is not enough to encourage an athlete to return to play.3 When hop testing is the only criterion for returning to play, a disservice has been done to the athlete. It is also important to use another objective, sport-specific criteria.

Energy is likewise one of the last things to return. In the “prevention” tab, Athletico provides single-leg, triple hop screening so we have a benchmark of athletes. If that athlete ever gets injured, doctors at Athletico will make sure that the athlete doesn’t just return to their average, but exceeds it. The 6six-month post-op mark also reveals consistency among athletes.

3. Fatigue

Since athletes are most likely to get injured when they are exhausted, physicians want to make sure that when tired, procedures for landing and cutting are flawless.

4. Athletes should not expect to play their first weekend back in contact in a game.

Patients are often allowed to return to non-contact training activity before the six-month mark or to pass all return to play requirements under exhaustion. It helps the athlete to begin to get some muscle memory and conditioning related to the sport. Most parents and athletes feel that “being released” means they will return the first week to playing a 90-minute soccer match (or worse, a whole tournament). Athletes must engage in multiple weeks of full-contact practices before attempting only a few minutes in each half of a game to ensure safe development when “released.”

Physical therapists are working hard to mimic sport-specific physical therapy movements, but responsive decision-making during training and games is challenging and better replicated. This can quickly tire athletes. To minimize their risk of re-injury, informing patients about acceptable progression is crucial!

And like most of the athletes out there, who are eager to get back to playing their favorite sport, if your question is What is the fastest way to recover from ACL surgery?

Here are the seven most important things to consider: They are

  • Control your pain. High levels of pain will keep you from doing the workouts you want.
  • • Reduce inflammation.
  • • Restore full straightening.
  • • Bending of your knee
  • • Do not forget the kneecap.
  • • Get the quads out there.
