On November 4, on the eve of World Pneumonia Day, a conversation was held at the department with students of the 1128 OM group prepared by Olzhayeva R. R. on this world problem and the causes and importance of prevention of this disease. World Pneumonia Day is celebrated annually on November 12th. This day is held to draw attention to the problem of pneumonia and the high mortality associated with it, as well as to intensify measures for the timely detection, treatment and prevention of this disease.
According to WHO, this disease is one of the ten most common, leading to death. Young children and the elderly (over 65 years of age) are especially susceptible to infection. Malnutrition, smoking, alcoholism and adverse environmental factors also increase the likelihood of developing the disease. The main preventive measures aimed at preventing respiratory viral infections: lead a healthy lifestyle (pay attention to physical activity, take walks in the fresh air, give up bad habits). Treating pneumonia is getting harder every year. The fact is that most microbes have already developed a stable immunity to modern antibiotics. In addition, as a rule, most of the fatal cases of pneumonia are associated with untimely seeking medical help. Therefore, on the eve of World Pneumonia Day, I would like to remind you once again that pneumonia is a disease that cannot be treated on its own. Symptoms that may indicate the development of pneumonia are: fever, shortness of breath and cough, chest pain when trying to take a deep breath. If these symptoms occur, you should immediately consult a doctor! Take care of your health, the health of your loved ones and be healthy!
