PNEUMOSLIDE typical solution for atypical pathogens

PNEUMOSLIDE - Test for simultaneous detection of 9 species of bacteria and viruses, the most common triggers of respiratory infections that are not detected by classical methods

 

Do you cough, have fever, chills?

Do you have rapid breathing, headache, sore throat..?

Do you feel tired, fatigued, or have decreased appetite? V

ery often, you do not have explanation for:

- Prolonged respiratory infection!

- Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)

- Atypical pneumonia with symptoms of a typical one, but does not respond to regular therapy!

Conditions which resemble a typical cold but actually are a lot more serious than you might expect!

You are not the only one!

 

What is to blame for the “typical” health condition?

More than 60% of respiratory infections are ATYPICAL PNEUMONIAS, which are caused by ATYPICAL PATHOGENS that mimic a cold, but do not respond to usual therapy. Instead, they prolong and exacerbate your condition, may cause complications, resistance to antibiotics, uncertain outcome - all in all complete waste of time and money.

These are the leading cause of morbidity and mortality in the world!

Mycoplasma pneumoniae

Legionella pneumophila

Chlamidya pneumoniae

Coxiella burnetii

Adenovirus

Respiratory Syncytial Virus

Influenza A,B

Parainfluenza (serotypеs 1,2,3)

These are the causes of infections that are very common, but very difficult to identify and for that reason - difficult to treat!

 

IDENTIFICATION OF THE RIGHT CAUSE OF THE DISEASE IS CRUCIAL FOR PROPER TREATMENT

 

PNEUMOSLIDE

 

TYPICAL SOLUTION FOR ATYPICAL PATHOGENS

 

When should it be done?

- Any respiratory infection is an ABSOLUTE INDICATION!!

- Prolonged respiratory infections which do not respond to usual therapy and allow development of further complications

- COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease)

- Immunocompromised patients (Patients with impaired immune system)

- Cardiac, dermatological, neurological, rheumatological, gastrointestinal and hematological manifestations

 

Why should it be done?

- Quick etiological diagnosis

- Detection of the most common causes of respiratory infections

- Adequate etiological therapy

- Without the risk of developing drug resistance

- Shortens the duration of the illness

- Prevents the development of complications

- Rationality - DETECTION OF 9 PATHOGENIC AT ONCE!!

Do not let yourself be surprised by respiratory infections. This is particularly important for children, elderly people (above 65 years), cardiopulmonary and chronic disease patients, as well as patients with compromised immune system (ICU/intensive care units’ patients, HIV – infected, and users of immunosuppression therapy).

 

Mycoplasma pneumoniae

1. “Walking” pneumonia:

It occurs most often in children, mild symptoms Transmission - a mass epidemic! It lasts days - weeks Clinical manifestation does not match the pathophysiologic state

2. “CAP “ Contagion rate of up to 90 %!

 

Legionella pneumophila

1. “Legionnaires' disease”

Discovered in 1976 in Philadelphia during the American Legion convention, when 221 legionnaires became infected with a severe form of pneumonia, out of which 35 died. No person-to-person transmission

Transmitted through cooling systems, shower heads, spa centers.

The risk factors for the development of Legionellosis are: smoking, diabetes, hematologic malignancy, renal disease, and HIV.

2. ”Pontiac fever”

Milder form of Legionnaires' disease that resembles the flu!

 

Chlamidya pneumoniae

1. Atypical pneumonia

(CAP) About 50% of adults and 70-80% for people above 70 years of age

2. Other clinical manifestations are: sinusitis, laryngitis, pharyngitis, and bronchitis.

Chlamydia pneumoniae – a new risk of:

Atherosclerosis

AAA (abdominal aortic aneurysm)

Claudication

Coronary heart disease

 

Coxiella burnetii

1. Q Fever

It belongs to the group of Zoonoses

The primary reservoir of the disease are goats, cattle, and sheep

Etiologic agent is very resistant and virulent

Transmitted alimentary and by inhalation

There is a high risk of becoming chronic!

Risk groups are veterinarians, dairy farmers, and health workers in laboratories

 

Adenovirus

1. Respiratory infections (>15%):

Acute febrile pharyngitis

Pharyngoconjunctivitis

Acute respiratory disease

 

Pneumonia!

2. Gastrointestinal infections:

Gastroenteritis

Respiratory Syncytial Virus

1. “Moderate respiratory infection”

2. Atypical pneumonia

The leading cause of respiratory infections in children

Highly contagious

Nearly all children before the age of 2 are infected

Frequent infection recurrence

It poses a serious problem (hospitalization) in premature infants; lungs, heart, and immune system disease!

 

Influenza A,B

1. Influenza (without complications)

Fever, headache, dry cough, high temperature, muscle pain, lassitude

2. Pneumonia

Especially in elderly patients with cardiopulmonary and other chronic conditions

3. Rey-syndrome

Acute encephalopathy in children and adolescents with mortality rate up to 40%

 

Parainfluenza (serotypеs 1,2,3)

1. Laryngotracheobronchitis(40-50%)

2. Bronchitis

3. Bronchiolitis

4. Pneumonia

The second most common cause of respiratory infections in children!
