When you have a cold, mucus may build up in your lungs and damage the tiny hairs that clean your lungs. This clogs up your lungs and is called pneumonia. In other words you ju…st get a cold and it simply settles into your lungs.
Answer . Walking pneumonia is a lay-man term for an infection of the lungs. The infection may be caused by a bacteria or virus. One catches 'walking pneumonia' by exposing …oneself to the secretions (saliva) of a sick human.. Answer . just like a cold
This is entirely dependent on the cause of a person's pneumonia. If they have pneumonia caused by a virus or an infectious bacteria (such as the bacteria responsible for pneum…onic plague), then those pathogens can be transmitted via respiratory droplets produced by the diseased person. If their pneumonia is not caused by an infectious pathogen (e.g., aspiration pneumonia), then you cannot catch it from them.
No. Pneumonia is an infection and/or inflammation of the lungs. Being cold or wet doesn't make you sick with infectious diseases. Being infected by a bacteria or virus (or oth…er infectious pathogen) that your immune system is unable to fight off is the cause of not only pneumonia, but virtually every communicable disease. It is the transmission of this infectious agent that causes the illness, not the conditions in which the infection is contracted. To say that cold and/or damp conditions cause pneumonia is like saying sleeping in a bed makes a woman pregnant simply because that's where lots of women get pregnant. The correlation between the two is purely coincidental.
pneumonia is not actually contagious .
Pneumonia is an infection of the lungs. Dogs can and do contract pneumonia and it is a very serious condition. Dogs in general have difficulty in fighting off pneumonia and ma…y die or sustain permanent lung damage. They may develop pneumonia as a result of a simple viral infection, that is, a cold, and many veterinarians prefer to treat colds with antibiotics, knowing that they will not affect the course of the primary infection but may prevent pneumonia resulting from a secondary bacterial infection.
If they ever come into contact (which they never should) or if you handle the guinea pig, followed by the hamster without washing your hands thoroughly, yes.
A friend of mine her daughter was just diagnosed with leukemia friday. She is 6 years old. And has already started Chemo. Now she has Pneumonia. Could this worsen the Leukemia…, and be fatal?
no actually it is not because you cant catch a sickness like that from any animal. so just stay safe and live a happy life!
Yes, if the type of pneumonia the person has is caused by bacteria or viruses. Just like any other communicable disease, it will spread from person to person. Some forms of pn…eumonia are not due to infectious organisms and they are not communicable. Use good hand washing and prevention techniques to avoid catching it from someone infected. There are vaccinations you can get for some types of pneumonia that work like a flu shot to keep you immune from the organism that causes the infectious pneumonia.
it will bob its head up and down and sing Rihanna's hows that chic.
Yes, some forms of pneumonia are communicable. However, there are types of pneumonia that are not communicable; chemical pneumonia, for example.
yes my baby sister did when she was 3.
They can for a little while if it's mild but if your baby has it bad I wouldn't.
In Animal Life
Yes. Humans can do the same also; if the water is cold enough and they person/cat is not warmed right away, they could catch pneumonia. If the kitten was still warmed right af…ter her fall, and she still has pneumonia, it's probably because kittens don't have the strong immune system mature cats have. Hope this helps!
Most human illnesses are not transferable to canines, however, proper hygiene should reduce the chance of sharing any transferable illness. Pneumonia is an infection in the l…ung(s), and can be treated with prescribed antibiotics. Dogs should not have a problem, however, if they do get it, there should be antibiotics for them too.
