Here’s Why Pneumonia Is Still So Deadly

November 4, 2019


Macrophages, cytokines, t-cells…the immune
system has a whole arsenal of ways to fight off an infection. But when it comes to some diseases, the way
the body defends itself can have unintended consequences. In the case of pneumonia, the immune system’s
response can be lethal, earning it the nickname the ‘captain of the men of death.’ Pneumonia doesn’t just refer to a single
virus or bacteria. It’s a condition that can actually be caused
by a number of different bacteria, viruses, or even fungi, the most common being the bacteria
streptococcus pneumoniae, who will be our main bad guy today. So when we’re talking about pneumonia, we’re
really referring to something that is happening to our lungs. Hi, my name’s Keith Klugman. I’m the director of the pneumonia programs
at the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. I’m particularly fascinated by pneumonia and
have been working to try and prevent pneumonia in poor children all of my life. So pneumonia is an infection of the lungs
and it is a very common infection. The problem is that the lungs are thought
to be sterile…in fact the lungs aren’t sterile. But generally there’s very few bugs in your lungs. The problem is that our mouth and our nose are actually filled with
bacteria and viruses and these can something get down into the lungs. We’re constantly being exposed to the bacteria
and viruses that cause pneumonia like Streptococcus pneumoniae. These pathogens can live in your upper respiratory
tract without you even knowing it. And that’s because, for most people, the immune system should be able to step in
and stop them in their tracks, leading to immunity. So you become immune to the bugs that you
encounter when you’re very young and by about five years of age, you’re pretty much immune. But, for children under 5, the immune system
is weaker, leaving the body susceptible to infection. And it’s not just children who are at risk. Then, unfortunately, pneumonia risk comes back again in the elderly. “Who is elderly?” you might say. Generally defined as people older than the
speaker. So, for me, it’s 65 and older… So pneumonia is a disease of the extremes
of life, the very young and the very old. Now, it’s not only young children and older
adults, anyone with a compromised immune system is at risk. With the immune system unable to mount a defense
in the respiratory tract, the bacteria are able to pass into the lungs. Once there, the immune system will still try
to defend the body. But… Unfortunately, they have a lot of side effects
when this response occurs. Macrophages first try to fight off the infection,
but they can become overwhelmed, triggering the release of cytokines. These cytokines lead to inflammation of the
lungs, causing air sacs called alveoli to fill with fluid. Yeah. So alveoli are air sacs in the lungs that
are where the exchange of oxygen and carbon dioxide take place. And it’s these alveoli that get filled with
the fluid that’s come from your bloodstream. Now, there’s no particular reason for red
cells to get out of the bloodstream but white cells that are included in the bloodstream
are very potent cells able to kill bacteria and they move in from the bloodstream out
into the tissues at the site of infection. But, filling the alveoli with fluid does more
than just fight off the infection. That’s because, basically, your lung sacs
are filling with pus. The lungs are there and exquisitely designed
for oxygen to pass from the air into your bloodstream…And so unfortunately, instead
of having nice, clear air pockets where this exchange can take place, if they’re filled
with fluid, then the exchange of oxygen and the release of carbon dioxide, which you breathe
out, also is impaired. This causes difficulty breathing as well as
a whole host of symptoms that vary greatly in severity. The effects of walking or atypical pneumonia
can be so mild, someone might not know even know they have it. In other cases, the infection can lead to
death. But, while pneumonia is still a disease that
kills millions of people worldwide, there isn’t a good reason why it should still
be so lethal. The main driver of mortality from pneumonia,
is access to treatment or lack thereof. So, in fact, there are vaccines that work
to protect from both bacterial and viral pneumonias. In fact, the most successful vaccine for prevention
of pneumonia is a bacterial vaccine. So pneumonia deaths really shouldn’t occur. It’s preventable, as I mentioned, by vaccines,
also treatable by antibiotics. Because of this, pneumonia deaths are much
more common in poorer countries with fewer resources. Which is why Dr. Klugman is working on ways
to develop more effective treatments in these areas of the world. But pneumonia deaths can still happen in places
like the United States, especially if something were to lead to people having compromised
immune systems. That could happen from contracting other illnesses,
some of which are entirely preventable. So, as you know, there have been outbreaks
of measles recently in the United States. And globally, measles has not been eradicated. One of the major problems with measles is
that it diminishes your immune response. And kids who have measles can get bacterial
and viral pneumonias after their measles so, in fact, pneumonia is a major killer following
measles exposure. So a vaccine, there’s a very potent vaccine
for measles. And measles prevention is a very important
way of preventing deaths from pneumonia.

    My parents and my brother died in the last 10 years from "Pneumonia". In all three cases, I had the same experience. 2 different states all three different hospitals. The hospitals were clueless and clumsy with treatment. The truth is they have no idea how to do anything with the lungs. Best they have is to stick a hose in your throat, tie you down so you cant pull it out, then let you look at the ceiling or tiny TV for months as they pump you full of antibiotics and try not to give you a worse infection. The second you pass the self-breathing test they kick you out. Go home for a few weeks until it comes back because you were not really healed. As your body and mind start to breakdown the stay gets longer. Eventually, after a few months, you run out of hospital days on insurance so they transfer you to an "extended care" facility. These budgets hospitals are the rundown death farms like Kindred Hosptial. All in all it takes about 2 to 6 months for the hospital to slowly kill you. Eventually, you have to sign a paper to kill your loved one. Stop the breathing tube then they let you die with a few meds to help you suffocate peacefully (actually its pretty terrifying). All with a blank smile from the staff. I will kill myself at home before I ever step foot into a hospital with ANY type of breathing issues.

    I have had pneumonia twice, at the age of 10 and 20. In both cases General Practitioners in the UK failed to notice my condition, and sent me off with medicine to cure a cold. When they did finally notice my condition I had to skip school for 3 weeks, and in the second instance I was hospitalised for 5 days. In addition to the lack of accessibility, I'd say doctor awareness and care is also very crucial.

    from personal experience this has nothing to do with a compromised immune system. for your body to react to the virus, bacteria, dust, etc it is an over reactive immune system. i believe that this is the true issue. not a lax immune system but an over reactive one or lack of treatment because the new pc view of antibiotics is you have to wait until you are almost dead to treat. vaccines will NEVER stop secondary infections that kill. ask the plague victims… oh yea, they are dead.

    I used to have an extremely good immune system, but then I started having struggles with my health, found out I had some severe sleep disorders which were causing my decline in health, as your body needs sleep to rest and recover.

    Got atypical pneumonia and it sucked. Thankfully I was able to recognize that something wasn’t right and scheduled an appointment with my doctor asap and got it treated. It was no wonder I was having more trouble breathing than normal
