Pneumonia Definitions and Acronyms

5 kinds of possible pneumonia
1. CAP
2. Aspiration
3. Hospital Acquired
4. Ventilator Acquired
5. Health Care Acquired

What is CAP?
Pneumonia acquired outside an healthcare facility

What is Aspiration Pneumonia?
Aspiration of oral or GI content

Common Pathogens of Aspiration Pneumonia?
Anerobes; Strep Viridians; gram – (neg) bacilli

What Hospital Acquired Pneumonia?
pneumonia that occurs greater than 48 hours of admission

What is ventilator associated Pneumonia?
Pneumonia after 48 to 72 hours of intubation?

What is Healthcare associated pneumonia?
-Hospitalized 2 days within 90 days
-Iv abx, wound care, chemo, HD within last 30days
-resembles HAP, but MORE RESISTANT bacteria

3 ways to assess Pna severity
1- PSI= Pna severity index
2- CURB-65
3- SOAR score

Describe PSI
-looks at age >50
RR >30
SBP <90 P>125/min
Temp= 95 or lower OR 104 or higher
-Prior Hx

If any Yes go to next questionaire
If NO to all, Rsk class 1

PSI RSK categories
Risk II: 70 or less
Risk III: 71 to 90
Risk IV: 91- 130
Risk V: Greater than 130

What does Risk class II or III mean?
Low risk and outpt

What does Risk class IV or V mean?
Moderate Risk IV (9%increase)
High Risk for V (27%incrase)
Hospitalize and increase mortality

CURB 65 stand for?
-based on 1 point system
Uremia BUN >19
Resp. Rate >30/min
BP systolic < 90 age >65

Point System of CURB
1= outpt
2 or greater= hospitalize

SOAR score
-based on 1 point system
S= Systolic BP <: FiO2 < 125 Age >65
RR >30

Why CURB 65 over SOAR?
SOAR is more senstive and considered O2 factor, but CURB 65 is more specific
