Of all the varieties of pneumonia are the most common croupous (equity) and focal (bronchopneumonia).

Lobar causing bacteria – pneumococci that can inhabit the mouth and upper respiratory tract in a healthy person, but only when related factors (hypothermia, decreased immunity) may develop the disease. This pneumonia is characterized by the occurrence in the cold season and the defeat at the development of the disease a considerable part, sometimes the entire lung.

The symptoms of lobar pneumonia:
• beginning may resemble a bad cold with a sharp rise in temperature to 39 - 40 degrees with chills;

• there is a dry and frequent cough;

• flank pain becomes severe and aggravated by coughing, sneezing and even breathing in;

• these symptoms associated shortness of breath, breathing becomes frequent and superficial;

• the specific feature of pneumonia is the appearance on the cheek of the blush from the side of the affected lung;

• often on the lips and the nostrils appear small vesicular rash (herpes);

• 2 - 3 day after beginning of disease a cough starts the secretion of viscous mucus, brownish-rusty color;

• in addition to the other signs, there is little urine of dark color. Diagnosis usually reveals the presence of protein;

• often occurs defeat of the cardiovascular system, Central nervous system (severe headaches, restlessness);

• I lose my appetite, and tongue coated brownish-white bloom;

• in severe cases may develop pulmonary edema.
7 - 8th day after onset of illness there comes sharp improvement, with restoration of temperature.

Unlike lobar pneumonia, focal affects individual regions of the lung (single or multiple). The damage to the lung tissue contributes to the spread of inflammation from the bronchi and bronchioles. Most often patchy pneumonia occurs as a complication of influenza, bronchitis, measles, whooping cough, and other infections. Stagnation of blood in lungs in supine patients, postoperative period, reduced immunity, inhalation of toxic fumes can also cause this type of pneumonia.

Symptoms of focal pneumonia:
• onset may be gradual, with a slight fever;

• paroxysmal cough is usually accompanied by purulent sputum;

• the disease can subside and appear with a new force, forming new foci of inflammation.

Pneumonia or inflammation of the lungs may vary in form and severity. And it contributes to the development of bacterial, viral or fungal infection, an inhaled chemical poisoning, toxic substances, and various injuries and prolonged bed rest.
2
The damage to the lung tissue in pneumonia may be full or partial. It depends on the degree of severity of the disease and its outcome, because the amplified blood flow to the inflamed areas causing the filling of the pulmonary vesicles of inflammatory effusion, and the displacement of one air. This in turn leads to compaction of the pulmonary tissue and impaired gas exchange. The inflammatory process in the lungs is reversible, if you take timely action and appropriate treatment. But you need to be able to recognize the signs of inflammation of the lungs.
3
The main signs of inflammation of the lungs refers to high temperature up to 39-40oC, severe chills, cough. However, these symptoms are common to many colds, so most should alert the pain side of chest, when breathing, coughing and sneezing. First, they appear periodically and then have a constant aching in nature. Breath because of this it becomes frequent and superficial, and shortness of breath. Due to the high temperature the skin becomes dry and scaly.
4
No less important a sign of inflammation of the lungs is flushed cheeks, more pronounced on the part affected by the inflammatory process of the lung. Around the lips and nostrils can appear cold sores. 2-3 days after onset of illness with a cough begins to stand out phlegm brownish-rusty color. Urine also becomes dark in color and stands out in small quantities.
5
In the untimely appeal to the doctor may be a violation of the cardiovascular and nervous systems that is manifested by heart palpitations and headaches. But the most severe consequence is the swelling of the lungsthat leads to death. With a favorable course of pneumonia, the improvement comes at a 7-9 day.
6
When focal pneumonia, when the inflammatory process involved separate regions of the lung, the symptoms may be mild and often resemble bronchitis. The disease can last for a long time, then subsided, forming new foci of inflammation. Often due to the lack of proper treatment focal pneumonia leaves adhesions in the lungs.
7
Access to a doctor should be the first questionable pain in the chest. This will allow to obtain timely and proper treatment of inflammation of the lungs and will help to avoid possible complications.

Advice 3 : How to identify pneumonia

Pneumonia or pneumonia is a common respiratory diseases. It develops as an independent disease and as a complication of other pathological processes. Often the first symptoms resemble the common cold. However, among them you can see the typical symptoms.

Pneumonia contributes to viral, bacterial and fungal infections, and inhalation of chemicals and toxic substances. Not less common cause of pneumonia is a complication of other diseases (influenza, bronchitis, etc.), and prolonged bed rest.
2
The manifestation of pneumonia depends on the severity of the inflammatory process (complete or partial lesion of the lung tissue), and the age of onset, concomitant diseases and other factors, able to change picture of the disease. However, some symptoms are all characteristic of inflammation of the lungs.
3
One of the first signs of pneumonia is a painful cough, which goes into a painful cough. Most often it is accompanied by high fever up to 39-40°C with shaking chills. In this case, assume pneumonia is possible when the pain in my side (in the chest) and sometimes in the abdomen during coughing, sneezing, and the inhalation and exhalation.

With the spread of the inflammatory process there is constant aching pain in the chest. Breathing becomes shallow and frequent. During the cough mucous expectoration changes to purulent and acquires the color of rust.
5
Due to the increase in temperature is marked dryness of the skin, peeling. Join signs of dehydration and intoxication. This, in turn, affects cardiovascular and nervous system, which manifests as palpitations and headache.
6
In addition to the characteristic signs of pneumonia decreased appetite. On the cheeks is welcome to apply blush, especially on the part of the affected lung. Often joined by cold sores around the lips and nostrils. Due to dehydration, the urine becomes dark in color and stands out in small quantities.
7
