- Slide 8
- What is Pneumonia? Pneumonia: an acute infection of the pulmonary parenchyma The term Lower Respiratory Tract Infection (LRTI) may include pneumonia, bronchiolitis and/or bronchitis
- Slide 9
- Epidemiology and Pathophysiology
- Slide 10
- Epidemiology Pneumonia kills more children under the age of five than any other illness in every region of the world. It is estimated that of the 9 million child deaths in 2007, 20% (1.8 million) were due to pneumonia Approximately 98% of children who die of pneumonia are in developing countries.
- Slide 11
- Epidemiology Dadaab and Kakuma Refugee Camps (Kenya) Data collected from 2007-2011 revealed that acute respiratory infections are the leading cause of morbidity and mortality in the camps. In Dadaab camp acute respiratory infections were associated with 30% to 40% of deaths of children less than 5 years of age and up to 45% of morbidity in the same age group.
- Slide 12
- Millennium Development Goal In 2000, the United Nations Member States committed to Millennium Development Goal 4 to reduce the under five mortality rate by two thirds by 2015, compared to 1990. Millennium Development Goal 4 can only be achieved by an intensified effort to reduce pneumonia deaths.
- Slide 13
- Question: Is reducing the incidence, morbidity, and mortality of pneumonia in children a high priority in the region where you practice? What is being done in your area?
- Slide 14
- Basic Pathophysiology Most cases of pneumonia are caused by the aspiration of infective particles into the lower respiratory tract. Organisms that colonize a childs upper airway can cause pneumonia. Pneumonia can be caused by person to person transmission via airborne droplets.
- Slide 15
- Etiology The common pathogens are a function of the patients age. The specific agent causing pneumonia can be determined in 1/3 to 2/3 of cases when cultures, antigen detection and serologic techniques are available. It is helpful to be aware of local outbreaks as clustering of cases is common.

- Pneumonia History
- Slide 19
- Pneumonia History Fundamentals Age Presence of cough, difficulty breathing, shortness of breath, chest pain Fever Recent upper respiratory tract infections Associated symptoms (e.g.. headache, lethargy, pharyngitis, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, abdominal pain, rash) Duration of symptoms
- Slide 20
- Pneumonia History Immunizations status TB exposure Maternal Chlamydia, Group B Strep status during pregnancy Choking episodes Previous episodes Previous antibiotics
- Slide 21
- Pneumonia History Ill contacts Travel history Day care attendance Animal exposure Dehydration is a sign of severe infection that may require hospitalization. Inquire about: Fluid and nutrition intake Urine output
- Slide 22
- History Fundamentals Past Medical History Birth History Medications Allergies Immunization Status Home Environment Social History Family History
- Slide 23
- Slide 24
- Diagnosis Objectives Recognition of the signs of pneumonia Diagnosis in a community setting Diagnosis in a health care setting Differential Diagnosis RSV and TB Diagnosis in the context of malnutrition, and considering HIV
- Slide 25
- Recognition of Signs of Pneumonia Tachypnea is the most sensitive and specific sign of pneumonia Tachypnea had a Sensitivity of 61% and 79% and Specificity of 79% and 65% for pneumonia in malnourished and well- nourished Gambian children respectively
- Slide 26
- WHO Definition of Tachypnea AgeRespiratory Rate (breaths/min) Indication of severe infection (breaths/min) < 2 months> 60>70 2 to 12 months> 50 12 months to 5 years > 40>50 Greater than 5 years > 20

- Other signs of pneumonia - Indrawing out---breathing---in Lower chest wall indrawing: with inspiration, the lower chest wall moves in From: Integrated Management of Childhood Illness.

- Diagnosis in Community Setting SIGNS Classify ASTreatment Tachypnea Lower chest wall indrawing Stridor in a calm child Severe Pneumonia Refer urgently to hospital for injectable antibiotics and oxygen if needed Give first dose of appropriate antibiotic TachypneaNon-Severe Pneumonia Prescribe appropriate antibiotic Advise caregiver of other supportive measure and when to return for a follow-up visit Normal respiratory rateOther respiratory illness Advise caregiver on other supportive measures and when to return if symptoms persist or worsen From: Pneumonia The Forgotten Killer of Children.

- Slide 30
- Infants at Risk of Pneumonia Infants less than 3 months old with signs of pneumonia should be referred immediately to the nearest health facility because they are at high risk of severe illness and death. Infants who were premature, and those with congenital heart disease or chronic lung disease are also at increased risk.
- Slide 31
- Diagnosis in a Health Care Setting Vital signs that should routinely be taken in an Emergency Care setting include: Respiratory Rate Heart Rate Temperature Oxygen saturation (if available) Any child with an increased respiratory rate should be immediately identified as having possible pneumonia.
- Slide 32
- Vital Signs Both heart rate and respiratory rate are influenced by the presence of fever. Heart rate increases by approximately 10 beats per minute for each 1 degree Celsius. Respiratory Rate has been estimated to vary by 0.5-2 breath per minute to 5-11 breaths per minute for each 1 degree Celsius.
