Definition 7/10/2012 5

Definition of Pneumonia:

Definition of Pneumonia Pneumonia is an infection of the alveolar space, with accumulation of inflammatory cells and secretions in the alveoli, resulting in impaired gas exchange. 7/10/2012 6

Definition of CAP:

Definition of CAP Community-acquired pneumonia (CAP) is defined as an acute infection of the lung parenchyma accompanied by symptoms of acute illness, which is not acquired in hospitals or other long-term care facilities. - Clin . infect Dis. 2000;31:347-82 7/10/2012 7

Definition cont’d:

Definition cont’d … an acute infection of the pulmonary parenchyma that is associated with some symptoms of acute infection, accompanied by the presence of an acute infiltrate on a chest radiograph, or auscultatory findings consistent with pneumonia, in a patient not hospitalized or residing in a long term care facility for > 14 days before onset of symptoms. Bartlett. Clin Infect Dis 2000;31:347-82 .


Incidence 7/10/2012 9


Incidence Pneumonia is the third most common cause of death among infectious diseases in the world. Lopez & Murray; Nat. Med 4:1241 (1998). Each year, three to four million patients die from pneumonia, a large proportion of whom are children or elderly people. The mortality of CAP is low in outpatients, and rises in hospitalized patients. 7/10/2012 10

CAP – The Pathogens Involved:

CAP – The Pathogens Involved 40-60% - No causative agent identified 2-5% - Two are more agents identified

Failure To Identify Etiology:

Failure To Identify Etiology A large number of patients have no definite etiology. This may be due to: Prior treatment with antibiotics. Presence of unusual pathogens that go unrecognized e.g. C. burnetti , fungi. Presence of a non-infectious mimic of CAP. Presence of pathogens that are currently not identified or recognized. 7/10/2012 amr badreldin hamdy MD FCCP 23

Value of Sputum Examination:

Value of Sputum Examination 7/10/2012 69


Bartlett-criteria Requires a high proportion of leukocytes and a low proportion of squamous cells in the sputum. Bartlett et al. (2000); Infect Dis 31:422. Non purulent sputum should not be used for cultures and therefore rejected. Should contain less than 10 epithelial cells and more than 25 neutrophils per low-power field. 7/10/2012 70

PowerPoint Presentation:

Reliable microbiologic diagnosis can be established in only 20% of all cases. Felmingham et al (2000); J Antimicrob Chemother , 50(S 1):25. 7/10/2012 71

Gram’s Stain of Sputum:

Gram’s Stain of Sputum Efficiency of test S. pneumoniae H. influenza Sensitivity 57 % 82 % Specificity 97 % 99 % Pos itive Predictive Value 95 % 93 % Negative Predictive Value 71 % 96 % Good sputum samples is obtained only from 39% 83% show only one predominant organism

Limitation Of Gram’s Stain:

Limitation Of Gram’s Stain Not all patients can produce a sample. Interpretation is observer dependent. Atypical pathogens cannot be seen. A positive result for pneumococcus is poorly predictive of the ability to recover that organism from a sputum or blood culture. 7/10/2012 amr badreldin hamdy MD FCCP 73

Failure To Identify Etiology:

Failure To Identify Etiology A large number of patients have no definite etiology. This may be due to: Prior treatment with antibiotics.

Principles For Antimicrobial Use

Criteria For Selection Of Antimicrobial Agents:

Criteria For Selection Of Antimicrobial Agents Most likely pathogens Clinical experience In vitro activity Patient tolerance Epidemiologic setting Exposures Prevalence of drug resistance among respiratory tract pathogens. 7/10/2012 amr badreldin hamdy MD FCCP 86

PowerPoint Presentation:

Initial antibiotic selection in the acute care setting is always empiric (versus pathogen-directed). Antibiotic selection begins with categorizing the patient with regard to severity and site of care (outpatient, hospital ward, intensive care unit).

PowerPoint Presentation:

3. For outpatient therapy, antibiotics with activity against drug resistant S. pneumoniae are necessary only in patients at risk, based on comorbidities and recurrent (within three months) antibiotic use. 4. For inpatient therapy, activity against drug resistant S. pneumoniae is always provided.

PowerPoint Presentation:

5. All antibiotic regimens should ensure activity against atypical pathogens. 6. Activity against enteric gram- ve pathogens, Pseudomonas, S. aureus , and anaerobes is reserved for patients at increased risk. 7. Consider drug allergy history and pregnancy status.

The Importance of Empirical Antibiotic Treatment:

The Importance of Empirical Antibiotic Treatment Despite the improvement in diagnostic methods, some cases of CAP ( may be up to 30%) can ’ t isolate a specific pathogen. -Thorax 2002; 57:267-271 The availability of diagnostic methods - Chest 2001; 120:2021-2034 7/10/2012 90

Empirical Treatment for Out-Patient:

Empirical Treatment for Out-Patient Macrolide ( clarithromycin or azithromycin for H. influenzae ) Fluoroquinolones Doxycycline Amoxicillin- clavulanate 2nd generation cephalosporin -Chest 2001; 120:2021-2034 7/10/2012 107

Empirical treatment for In-patient (General Ward):

Empirical treatment for In-patient (General Ward) 3rd generation cephalosporin plus a macrolide or doxycycline Antipneumococcal fluoroquinolones Betalactam -beta- lactamase inhibitor plus a macrolide or doxycycline -N Engl J Med 2002; 347:2039-45 7/10/2012 108

Switch Therapy:

Switch Therapy Or step-down therapy, refers to the use of the same drug first intravenously and then orally . 7/10/2012 amr badreldin hamdy MD FCCP 109

Advantages Of Early Switching:

Advantages Of Early Switching Shorter hospital stay. Cost savings in drugs, nursing time, and IV solutions. Fewer hospital related complications e.g. phlebitis, falls. Greater patient satisfaction . 7/10/2012 amr badreldin hamdy MD FCCP 110


Continued 5. Avoidance of IV line complications. 6. Lower cost of oral agents. 7. Oral administration facilitates discharge. 7/10/2012 amr badreldin hamdy MD FCCP 111


Rapid switch therapy is believed to be successful in pneumonia treatment because the lung is highly vascular , permitting the achievement of adequate levels of the antibiotic at the site of infection, the lung and the macrophages. 7/10/2012 amr badreldin hamdy MD FCCP 112


Continued If antibiotic penetration into the infected lung is expected to be poor for a particular patient e.g. presence of lung abscess, necrotizing pneumonia or empyema , then switch therapy is not recommended . 7/10/2012 amr badreldin hamdy MD FCCP 113

Sequential Therapy:

Sequential Therapy This refers to the use of an intravenous antibiotic therapy followed by oral therapy with a drug from another antibiotic class. 7/10/2012 amr badreldin hamdy MD FCCP 114

Duration Of Therapy:

Duration Of Therapy Because the natural course of treatment response, antibiotic therapy should not be changed within the first 72 hours, unless there is marked clinical deterioration, or if bacteriologic data necessitate a change. 7/10/2012 amr badreldin hamdy MD FCCP 115

Treatment Failure:

Treatment Failure It is defined as lack of clinical improvement after 72 hours of treatment or worsening of the clinical situation. 7/10/2012 116

Lack of response or deterioration :

Lack of response or deterioration Host factors Elderly Immunosuppressed Bacteraemia Chronic illness Diabetes Alcoholism Second nosocomial pneumonia Misdiagnosis Pulmonary embolus CCF Pulmonary haemorrhage Pulmonary vasculitis BOOP Acute interstitial pneumonitis Eosinophilic pneumonia Hypersensitivity pneumonitis Local factors Effusion/ empyema Abscess

Management of Poor Responders:

Mortality of CAP – Based on Pathogen :

Mortality of CAP – Based on Pathogen P. aeruginosa - 61.0 % K. pneumoniae - 35.7 % S. aureus - 31.8 % Legionella - 14.7 % S. pneumoniae - 12.0 % C. pneumoniae - 9.8 % H. influenza - 7.4 %

Strategies for Prevention of CAP:

Strategies for Prevention of CAP Cessation of smoking Influenza Vaccine ( Flu shot – Oct through Feb) It offers 90% protection and reduces mortality by 80% Pneumococcal Vaccine ( Pneumonia shot ) It protects against 23 types of Pneumococci 70% of us have Pneumococci in our RT It is not 100% protective but reduces mortality Age 19-64 with co morbidity of high for pneumonia Above 65 all must get it even without high risk Starting first dose of antibiotic within 4h & O 2 status

The Influenza Vaccine:

The Influenza Vaccine The influenza vaccine (the ‘flu shot’) is offered during the ‘flu season’, which is October through March. Studies have shown the flu vaccine can be up to 90% effective in preventing flu in healthy adults, but may be less effective in elderly or chronically ill persons. The good news is up to 80% of deaths from the flu could be prevented with a flu shot. 7/10/2012 123

The Pneumococcal Vaccine:

The Pneumococcal Vaccine The pneumococcal vaccine (the ‘pneumonia shot’) protects against 23 types of pneumococcal bacteria. Researchers know the vaccine is not 100% effective in preventing pneumonia, but they’ve found that if you are vaccinated you are less likely to die from pneumonia. 7/10/2012 124 If you are between 19 and 64 years of age, you may need to have the pneumonia shot if you have a medical condition which puts you at a higher risk of getting pneumonia.

The Pneumococcal Vaccine:

The Pneumococcal Vaccine Everyone age 65 or older should have one lifetime dose of the pneumonia shot. However, if you received the pneumonia shot before the age of 65, you need to wait at least 5 years before you get the ‘after 65’ pneumonia shot. 7/10/2012 125
