Physiotherapy Services For Pneumonia

The human respiratory system consists of the windpipe, the lungs and the bronchi connecting the windpipe to the alveoli in the lungs. The air we breathe in reaches the sponge-likepassacs called the alveoli in the lungs that absorb oxygen and passes it onto the blood. The carbon dioxide is extracted from the blood and released via these alveoli.

 

Pneumonia is a condition affecting the alveoli when fluid deposit (sometimes even pus deposits) occurs in either one or both of them. This disrupts the respiration and can be dangerous for the patients. Although anyone can contract pneumonia, the two age groups at the maximum risk are:

 

  1. Children younger than 2 years
  2. Adults older than 65 years

Symptoms:

 

The most common symptoms of pneumonia were observed in patients across age groups are:

 

  • A persistent cough may even be with phlegm
  • Pain in the chest while coughing
  • Easily getting tired
  • High Fever
  • A sudden drop in body temperature
  • Difficulty in breathing
  • Loss of momentary awareness or confusion in senior citizens

There are multiple agents that can cause pneumonia. It can be caused by either bacteria, virus or even fungi, which are inhaled by the patient and then multiply in their lungs. The most common line of treatment for bacteria contracted in public places except healthcare facilities is with antibiotics. However, this is not so easy when the bacteria are acquired from a healthcare facility since they become drug resistant.

 

Pneumonia being a communicable disease can affect anyone and any age, yet there are a number of characteristics that increase one’s vulnerability towards acquiring the disease. Some of the most important risk factors include:

 

  1. Age – the two age groups most susceptible to being affected by Pneumonia are children less than 2 years of age and adults above 65 years of age.
  2. Addiction – people addicted to smoking, drinking alcohol or using other drugs have weakened lungs as a result of long periods of substance abuse and hence are vulnerable to catching pneumonia
  3. Weak Immune System – this can be a result of a lot of things like recent hospitalization, recovering from surgery, malnutrition, suffering from severe ailments like AIDS or cancer and taking medication for some medical conditions
  4. Chronic Diseases – if a patient is already suffering from chronic diseases of the heart or kidney, asthma, cystic fibrosis, etc. their vulnerability towards getting pneumonia increases manifold.

The line of treatment varies with different pneumonia-causing agents:

 

  1. Bacteria – Community-acquired Pneumonia caused by bacteria is treated with antibiotic treatments.
  2. Virus – The virus causing common influenza may also lead to pneumonia and the symptoms are also similar. Once diagnosed, community-acquired pneumonia caused by viruses is treated by giving a lot of fluids to the patient.
  3. Fungi – For the fungi caused pneumonia, antifungal medicines are prescribed and administered to the patient.

While there are specific lines of treatment for each type of pneumonia, doctors also suggest undertaking physiotherapy for pneumonia as a supplemental treatment. This approach has many advantages and hence the popularity of chest physiotherapy for pneumonia in adults is increasing day by day. This is due to the beneficial results seen by those opting for this mode of treatment.

 

Physiotherapy for pneumonia helps in a number of ways, especially during recovery by making sure that the lungs are cleared out and the patient is able to breathe properly. Although it is popularly believed that chest physiotherapy for pneumonia in children is beneficial for those who are hospitalized, it is equally helpful for people who are recovering whether at a medical facility or at home. The positive improvement rate has encouraged more and more people to try this supplemental treatment methodology to build on the benefits of hospitalization and undergoing surgery.

 

Some of the responsibilities of a professional practicing and offering the services of physiotherapy for pneumonia include:

 

  • Showing and assisting in special breathing exercises so as to improve lung ventilation by clearing the cough deposits
  • Performing special therapies as part of chest physiotherapy for pneumonia in adults that help in loosening of the mucus
  • Using special devices to take out the dense deposits formed on the lungs
  • Counseling the patient as well as the family members on the best way to deal with the situation, especially how to handle chest physiotherapy for pneumonia in children
  • Listening to breathing sounds and observing the breathing patterns, so as to assess the condition and the improvements over a period of time
  • Spend time with the patient and perform assessments as well as re-assessments to check on the progress
  • Consult the physician, pharmacist and any other relevant medical practitioner to discuss the improvements being made and to identify if any medical interference is required further
  • Develop a personalized line of treatment including customized exercise regimen based on your health condition
  • Help with mobility and improving the stamina after the patient is back home from the surgery. This is a big help especially for adults over 65 years of age, who tend to experience confusion and motor issues when afflicted by pneumonia

 

It is believed that the patients need to visit the physiotherapists for their routine check-ups and exercises, which sometimes act as a deterrent for people in scheduling a visit or opting for physiotherapy. However, with service providers like Care24 in all major cities, physiotherapy for multiple diseases is now available in the form of home care. You need not travel long distances to keep your appointments, rather the physiotherapist may visit your home and help you recover in the familiar and comforting environment of your home.

  • physiotherapy for pneumonia, Pneumonia  Most horrible services. Please do not ask for help from these people, they will talk sweet and then at the last moment there will be no shows from the caretaker. I had to go through this not once but twice the caretaker did not turn up. Request you all to not depend on these people as we are leaving our homes and letting them into our lives, the least they can do is inform and provide a replacement, but neither of it happened and they expect me to pay registration fees of RS,1000

  • physiotherapy for pneumonia, Pneumonia  We had a ridiculously pathetic experience with them. Took an attendant service, a 10 day offer (rs 600 instead of their regular fee of rs 800), for my mother who had undergone an knee replacement surgery. In six days, 4 different attendants were assigned for no fault of ours. We had terrible experience going through the back-end team trying to explain the importance of sending only one attendant and not a different one every new day. The last person assigned wanted to leave by 5pm even though the timings were from 8am to 8pm. With this many other terrible instances in these 6 days, we had no option but to cancel the services. The back-end team were utterly useless in understanding the importance of having only one person assigned. They kept insisting that we pay for 800rs per day for 6 day and offer of rs 600 per day would be invalid. The management should look into this scam and take immediate action on the team. Note: Even though we wanted the services, we were forced to abandon it with no fault of ours. The back-end team has absolute disregard for the grievances of the client.

  • physiotherapy for pneumonia, Pneumonia  worst service, they just talk as if they will send professional at our place, they give big promises at the time of starting their services, but when the attendant come at our place we realized that he was more delicate than our patient, the person whom they had sent got a small scratch in his finger and than the same day he said he wont come as he got injury, so the next day he dint turn up neither did care24 arrange for a replacement, after calling them for 4 times they said me sorry they couldn't arrange anyone today. they don not have the decency to even inform that they cannot arrange for a replacement.. please do not go for their services, its just the promises nothing to deliver

  • physiotherapy for pneumonia, Pneumonia  My father had a hip bone surgery in January. I have been using Care24 services ever since. The attendants that cane were good in the beginning. However their services have become good to bad to worse to worst in the last 15 days. They changed the night attendant without informing me personally just 6 hours before the time. My father had just settled down with the last attendant and now they were sending a replacement tonight. To add to my frustration the guy didn’t turn up and did not answer the calls. When I called their call centre - they said they can’t help me at this hour. Well- I can’t help but call them CARELESS CARE24.
