Bacterial infections of the lungs and blood are a common cause of illness and death worldwide. The two most common types of bacterial infections of the lungs are pneumonia and tuberculosis (TB). Pneumonia is an infection of the lungs caused by bacteria, viruses, or fungi. It can range in severity from mild to life-threatening. Symptoms can include fever, coughing, chest pain, and difficulty breathing. TB is a contagious, airborne disease caused by the bacteria Mycobacterium tuberculosis. Symptoms of TB can include fever, night sweats, and coughing, and it can be difficult to diagnose.
Blood infections, also known as bacteremia or sepsis, occur when bacteria enter the bloodstream. These infections can be caused by a number of different bacteria, such as Streptococcus, Staphylococcus, and E. coli. Symptoms of a blood infection may include fever, chills, fatigue, and confusion. If left untreated, a blood infection can lead to organ failure and death.
Treating bacterial infections of the lungs and blood requires prompt diagnosis and treatment with antibiotics. In some cases, additional treatments such as hospitalization, oxygen therapy, or surgery may be needed. To reduce the risk of getting a bacterial infection of the lungs or blood, it is important to practice good hygiene, such as regular hand-washing, and to get vaccinated against diseases like TB.
