Prevent Transmission Of Bronchopneumonia?
good morning good doctor ..
Good evening Baimaffifah, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Bronchopenumonia is inflammation of the lung tissue that can be caused by bacteria or viruses, and is included in one of the diseases that can be contagious. This disease can be transmitted to others if the person is exposed to phlegm or sneezing from people who are suffering from bronchopneumonia.
Here are some conditions that can increase a person's chances of contracting bronchopenumonia:
Age 65 years or older and children 2 years or less
People who work or are often in the environment of health facilities (hospitals, clinics, health centers, etc.)
Poor lifestyles such as smoking, malnutrition, alcohol use
Certain diseases that are suffered such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), asthma, diseases that decrease endurance such as HIV, etc.
Because this disease is highly contagious, it is recommended to:
Wear a mask or cover your nose and mouth when coughing or sneezing, especially when making contact with other people
Consumption of drugs according to doctor's advice, if you get antibiotics, spend antibiotics according to the dose and schedule that has been determined
Temporarily reduce close contact with people who are at high risk of contracting until they are cured by a doctor
Keep hands clean
Run a healthy lifestyle to help increase endurance so that the disease heals faster
Consult about vaccinations that can prevent this disease for children with a doctor, whether deemed necessary or not
If you feel the symptoms aggravate, immediately consult a hospital emergency room to get further help.
I hope this helps.
