Pneumonia is an inflammatory condition of the lung, especially of the alveoli (microscopic air sacs in the lungs) associated with fever, chest symptoms, and consolidation on a chest radiograph.
actually i got friend got this disease. i noticed, one of symptom is cough..and i thought it was normal cough...the next day he went to hospital, admitted to icu ward..
serious isnt it?
he'd been in icu for one day..and rite now in normal ward..i mean it was 4dayshttp://www.blogger.com/img/blank.gif ago when he was in icu...
the doctor who incharge told dat, due to morning mist *embun, taking shower late..can be cause of this...btw..he's working in one of airline...maintenance guy..so it is not impossible if he got this disease..working at terminal..nite shift...
as i know...this disease can be one of cause of death..is it?
so...my advice..if u got cough...or fever..dont simply take it as common fever or cough...
