The typical symptoms of sudden chills, fever, body temperature up to 39 to 40 DEG C, a continuous fever type, headache, muscle weakness, anorexia. After the use of antibiotics, the heat type is not typical, the old body weak is only low heat or no fever. In the early stage, irritating dry cough followed by white mucus sputum or bloody sputum. After 1~2 days, mucous bloody sputum, rust colored sputum and purulent sputum were developed, and the sputum volume increased and the sputum was yellow and thin.
Pneumonia needs to be treated in time. In addition to bed rest, a large amount of drinking water, oxygen inhalation, and active expectoration, the most important link in the treatment of pneumonia is anti infection. The treatment of bacterial pneumonia is included in the treatment of pathogens and empirical treatment. According to the results of sputum culture and drug sensitivity test, the former selected sensitive antibiotics in vitro, and the latter mainly selected antimicrobial agents that might cover pathogens based on epidemiological data of pneumonia pathogens in this area. In addition, according to the age of the patient, the basic disease, the severity of the disease, whether there is a mistaken aspiration and other factors, the selection of antibiotics and the way of drug delivery.
Clinical symptoms effectively as the temperature decreased, the improvement of symptoms, clinical stability, white blood cells decreased gradually and returned to normal, and the X-ray absorption is relatively late, such as 72 hours after the symptoms improve, the reasons may be: the drug failed to cover the pathogen, or bacterial resistance, such as Mycobacterium tuberculosis, fungi, viruses etc. special pathogen infection.
