What is Pediatric Community Acquired Pneumonia ?

Inroduction: P C.A.P.
Community-acquired pneumonia (CAP) is a term used to describe one of several diseases in which individuals who have not recently been hospitalized develop an infection of the lungs (pneumonia). CAP is a common illness and can affect people of all ages. CAP often causes problems like difficulty in breathing, fever, chest pains, and a cough. CAP occurs because the areas of the lung which absorb oxygen (alveoli) from the atmosphere become filled with fluid and cannot work effectively. CAP occurs throughout the world and is a leading cause of illness and death. Causes of CAP include bacteria, viruses, fungi, and parasites. CAP can be diagnosed by symptoms and physical examination alone, though x-rays, examination of the sputum, and other tests are often used. Individuals with CAP sometimes require treatment in a hospital. CAP is primarily treated with antibiotic medication. Some forms of CAP can be prevented by vaccination

Symptoms of P-Cap
dyspnea coughing that produces greenish or yellow sputum a high fever that may be accompanied with sweating, chills, and uncontrollable shaking sharp or stabbing chest pain rapid, shallow breathing that is often painful Less common symptoms include: hemoptysis headaches loss of appetite excessive fatigue cyanosis nausea vomiting diarrhea

Symptoms of P-Cap
diarrhea joint pain (arthralgia) muscle aches (myalgia) The manifestations of pneumonia, like those for many conditions, might not be typical in older people. They might instead experience: new or worsening confusion hypothermia falls* Additional symptoms for infants could include: being overly sleepy yellowing of the skin (jaundice) difficulties feeding

There are over a hundred microorganisms which can cause CAP. The most common types of microorganisms are different among different groups of people. Newborn infants, children, and adults are at risk for different spectrums of disease causing microorganisms. In addition, adults with chronic illnesses, who live in certain parts of the world, who reside in nursing homes, who have recently been treated with antibiotics, or who are alcoholics are at risk for unique infections

Even when aggressive measures are taken, a definite cause for pneumonia is only identified in half the cases.

Cause Among Infants

Newborn infants can acquire lung infections prior to being born either by

breathing infected amniotic fluid or by blood-borne infection across the placenta. Infants can also inhale (aspirate) fluid from the b birth canal as they are being born. The most important infection in newborns is caused by Streptococcus agalactiae, also known as Group B Streptococcus or GBS. Other bacterial causes in the newborn period include Listeria monocytogenes and tuberculosis. Viruses can also be transferred from mother to child; herpes simplex virus is the most common and life-threatening, but adenovirus, mumps, and enterovirus can also cause disease.

Cause Among Infants

CAP in older infants reflects increased exposure to microorganisms. Common bacterial causes include Streptococcus pneumoniae, Escherichia colii , Klebsiella pneumoniae, Moraxella catarrhalis, andStaphylococcus aureus.

A unique cause of CAP in this group is Chlamydia trachomatis, which is acquired during birth but which does not cause pneumonia until 24 weeks later. Maternally-derived syphilis can be a cause of CAP in this age group.

Common viruses include respiratory syncytialy virus(RSV), metapneumovirus, adenovirus, parainfluenza, influenza, and rhinovirus. RSV in particular is a common source of illness and hospitalization.[4] Fungi and parasites are not typically encountered in otherwise healthy infants.

Some people have an underlying problem which increases their risk of getting an infection
Obstruction When part of the airway (bronchi) leading to the alveoli is obstructed The lung is not able to clear fluid when it accumulates. This can lead to infection of the fluid resulting in CAP. One cause of obstruction, especially in young children, is inhalation of a foreign object such as a marble or toy. The object is lodged in the small airways and pneumonia can form in the trapped areas of lung. Another cause of obstruction is lung cancer, which can grow into the airways block the flow of air.

Risk Factors

Lung disease people with underlying lung disease are more likely to develop CAP. Diseases such as emphysema or habits such as smoking result in more frequent and more severe bouts of CAP. In children, recurrent episodes of CAP may be the first clue to diseases such as cystic fibrosis or pulmonary sequestration

Immune problems People who have immune system problems are more likely to get CAP. People who have AIDS are much more likely to develop CAP. Other immune problems range from severe immune deficiencies of childhood such as Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome to less severe deficiencies such as common variable immunodeficiency

Individuals with symptoms of CAP require further evaluation.

1.)Physical examination by a health provider --may reveal fever, an increased respiratory rate (tachypnea), low blood pressure (hypotension), a fast heart rate (tachycardia), and/or changes in the amount of oxygen in the blood. Feeling the way the chest expands (palpation) and tapping the chest wall (percussion) to identify dull areas which do not resonate can identify areas of the lung which are stiff and full of fluid (consolidated)

2.)Examination of the lungs with the aid of a stethoscope-- can reveal several things. A lack of normal breath sounds or the presence of crackling sounds (rales) when the lungs are listened to (auscultated) can also indicate consolidation. Increased vibration of the chest when speaking (tactile fremitus) and increased volume of whispered speech during auscultation of the chest can also reveal consolidation

Administering an antibiotic which is effective in killing the offending microorganism as well as managing any complications of the infection. Most people will be fully treated after taking oral pills while other people need to be hospitalized for intravenous antibiotics and, possibly, intensive care. In general, all therapies in older children and adults will include treatment for atypical bacteria. Typically this is a macrolide antibiotic such as azithromycin or clarithromycin although a fluoroquinolone such as levofloxacin can substitute. Doxycycline is now the antibiotic of choice in the UK for complete coverage of the atypical bacteria. This is due to increased levels of clostridium difficile seen in hospital patients being linked to the increased use of clarithromycin. Newborns Most newborn infants with CAP are hospitalized and given intravenous ampicillinand gentamicinfor at least ten days. This treats the common bacteriaStreptococcus agalactiae Listeria monocytogenes and Escherichia coli If herpes simplex virus is the cause, intravenous acyclovir is administered for 21 days.

Despite appropriate antibiotic therapy, severe complications can result from CAP, including: Sepsis can occur when microorganisms enter the blood stream and the immune system responds. Sepsis most often occurs with bacterial pneumonia; Streptococcus pneumoniae is the most common cause. Individuals with sepsis require hospitalization in an intensive care unit. They often require medications and intravenous fluids to keep their blood pressure from going too low. Sepsis can cause liver, kidney, and heart damage among other things. Respiratory failure Because CAP affects the lungs, often individuals with CAP have difficulty breathing. If enough of the lung is involved, it may not be possible for a person to breathe enough to live without support. Non-invasive machines such as a bilevel positive airway pressure machine may be used. Otherwise, placement of a breathing tube into the mouth may be necessary and a ventilator may be used to help the person breathe. Pleural effusion and empyema Occasionally, microorganisms from the lung will cause fluid to form in the space surrounding the lung, called the pleural cavity. If the microorganisms themselves are present, the fluid collection is often called an empyema. If pleural fluid is present in a person with CAP, the fluid should be collected with a needle (thoracentesis) and examined. Depending on the result of the examination, complete drainage of the fluid may be necessary, often with a chest tube. If the fluid is not drained, bacteria can continue to cause illness because antibiotics do not penetrate well into the pleural cavity. Abscess Rarely, microorganisms in the lung will form a pocket of fluid and bacteria called an abscess. Abscesses can be seen on an x-ray as a cavity within the lung. Abscesses typically occur in aspiration pneumonia and most often contain a mixture of anaerobic bacteria.



The integrated system of organs involved in the intake and exchange of oxygen and carbon dioxide between an organism and the environment.







When air is flowing into the lungs.

When air is leaving the lungs.



BRONCHIAL SOUNDS are produced by air rushing through the large respiratory passageway(trachea & bronchi). VESICULAR SOUNDS occur as air fills the alveoli, it is soft and resemble a muffled breeze.

Impaired Physical Mobility


o Most of the infectious agents that cause CAP are aspirated into the lung. This is especially the case for vulnerable individuals with an impaired immune system.

CAP that results from aspiration of oropharyngeal contents is the only form of CAP with multiple pathogens.

An infection usually occurs when one component of the defence mechanism is not functioning properly. This results in microbial colonisation of the upper respiratory tract. :

Microbes can enter and invade the lower respiratory tract by many methods, and 6 mechanisms have been identified in the pathogenesis of pneumonia in immunocompetent adults:

Inhalation of infectious particles

Aspiration of oropharyngeal or gastric contents

Haematogenous deposition of bacteria in the lung

Invasion from infection in contiguous structures

Direct inoculation
