Pneumonia; Signs, Symptoms & Prevention

Pneumonia is an infection of the lungs that can cause mild to severe illness in people. U.N.I. has C-ray on site and can diagnose and treat pneumonia. Although vaccines can prevent some types of pneumonias, it is still the leading infectious cause of death in children younger than 5 years old worldwide.*

Common signs of pneumonia to watch for include cough, fever, and difficulty breathing. You can prevent pneumonia and most respiratory infections by following good hygiene practices including washing hands and disinfecting surfaces frequently. Making healthy choices like quitting smoking, eating well, and managing ongoing medical conditions can also help. Contact U.N.I or stop by any location if you suspect you have pneumonia.
