Pneumonia is acute inflammation of the lungs caused by infection. Initial diagnosis is usually based on chest x-ray. Causes, symptoms, treatment, preventive measures, and prognosis differ depending on whether the infection is bacterial, viral, fungal, or parasitic; whether it is acquired in the community, hospital, or nursing home; and whether it develops in a patient who is immunocompetent or immunocompromised.

Sepsis, severe sepsis, and septic shock are inflammatory states resulting from systemic bacterial infection. In severe sepsis and septic shock, there is critical reduction in tissue perfusion. Common causes include gram-negative organisms, staphylococci, and meningococci. Symptoms often begin with shaking chills and include fever, hypotension, oliguria, and confusion. Acute failure of multiple organs can occur, including the lungs, kidneys, and liver. Treatment is aggressive fluid resuscitation, antibiotics, supportive care, and sometimes intensive control of blood glucose and administration of corticosteroids and activated protein C.

Pneumothorax is air in the pleural space causing partial or complete lung collapse. Pneumothorax can occur spontaneously or from underlying pulmonary disease, trauma, or medical procedures. Diagnosis is based on physical examination and chest x-ray. Most pneumothoraces require transcatheter aspiration or tube thoracostomy.
Please see the web pages for more details on Pneumonia, Sepsis and Pneumothorax.

I was an hospital Care Manager till I retired - my job was to help older people get out of hospital and back home if possible or somewhere they really wanted to be.
We were always just as "chuffed" to see a success story - give Mum a big hug from me.

god bless your mum for a speedy recovery and hope she gets back to what she likes doing soon my love to you all

Well, it's great to know that your mom is coming home at last. God bless!

Ahhh. I am so thrilled for you all. It's amazing what a bit of will power can do, so you should never give up, and you and your mum obviously didn't. I wish her a long and happy life, and the best of health too.
Enjoy xx
