Pulmonary Infections and Respiratory Tract Infections Prevention and Control

Pulmonary infections are mostly observed in lungs which in turn causes acute bronchitis or pneumonia which are often caused by viruses but also can be caused by bacteria or fungal organisms. Respiratory tract infections are the infections which are observed in the respiratory tract ad they are further classified as upper respiratory tract infections and lower respiratory tract infections.

Pulmonary infections are common and are caused by a wide range of organisms. Microorganisms responsible may enter the lung by three potential routes through tracheobronchial tree/ pulmonary vasculature/ direct spread from infection in the mediastinum, chest wall or upper abdomen. Respiratory tract infections are the infections which are observed in the respiratory tract ad they are further classified as upper respiratory tract infections and lower respiratory tract infections. Upper respiratory tract infections are mostly observed in the parts of nose, sinuses and throat whereas lower tract respiratory tract infections are observed in the parts of airways and lungs. They are usually caused by viruses but can also be caused by bacteria. Lower respiratory infections such as pneumonia tend to be far more serious condition than upper respiratory infections such as the common cold which is the most widespread respiratory tract infection. Respiratory tract infections mostly occur in children as they do not develop immunity like adults.
