What is pneumonia?

  • by

Pneumonia is an infection of one or both lungs which is usually caused by bacteria, viruses, or fungi. Prior to the discovery of antibiotics, one-third of all people who developed pneumonia subsequently died from the infection. Currently, over 3 million people develop pneumonia each year in the United States. Over a half a million of these people are admitted to a hospital for treatment. Although most of these people recover, approximately 5% will die from pneumonia. Pneumonia is the sixth leading cause of death in the United States.

صرف پاکستان میں ایک محتاط اندازہ کے مطابق 80,000 افراد سالانہ اس مرض کی پیچیدگیوں کی وجہ سے انتقال کرجاتے ہیں۔ اور اس کا بنیادی سبب اس مرض کے بارے میں معلومات کی کمی ہے۔

ذیابیطیس جو عام طور پر پہلے صرف بڑی عمر میں لاحق ہوتا تھا، اب زندگی کی سہولیات اور آسانیاں بڑھ جانے ، تیز رفتار چربیلے کھانوں، اور جسمانی زور و مشقوں کی کمی کی وجہ سے جوانوں اور بچوں تک کو لاحق ہورہا ہے۔

Difference between heart attack and heart failure

The death of Michael Jackson following cardiac arrest prompted questions of the difference between that and a heart attack. It is important to understand a few facts about the heart.

Its job is to be a pump, pushing blood around the body. It does this by ‘beating’ — squeezing the blood out and pushing it on its way.

The heart beats constantly because it has its own special nerves that start an electrical impulse for every beat, making the heart squeeze.

The heart is made up of a unique type of muscle and has its own blood supply, providing the energy to beat constantly.Read More »Difference between heart attack and heart failure
