A spiration pneumonia is best considered not as a distinct entity but as part of a continuum that also includes communityand hospitalacquired pneumonias. It is estimated that aspiration pneumonia accounts for 5 to 15% of cases of community-acquired pneumonia, but figures for hospitalacquired pneumonia are unavailable.1 Robust diagnostic criteria for aspiration pneumonia are lacking, and as a result, studies of this disorder include heterogeneous patient populations. Aspiration of small amounts… Expand
Aspiration pneumonia: A renewed perspective and practical approach.
TLDR
A proposed definition based on expert opinion not only unifies the diagnostic criteria of AP, but also provides the possibility to devise easily applicable strategies to prevent oral colonization. Expand
Diagnosis of Aspiration Pneumonia: What Is the Definition of Aspiration Pneumonia in Clinical Practices?
TLDR
The diagnosis of aspiration pneumonia depends on clinical history, risk factors, and compatible findings on chest radiography, which include infiltrates in gravity-dependent pulmonary segments. Expand
Clinical Significance of Aspiration Pneumonia in All the Pneumonia Therapy: The Impact of Aspiration Pneumonia on the Therapeutic Approach for All Pneumonia
TLDR
Therapeutic approach for aspiration pneumonia is the combination of antimicrobials against causative pathogens of pneumonia, treating malnutrition and comorbid illnesses, rehabilitation and reevaluation of all medications, and appropriate preventive strategies such as pneumococcal and influenza vaccinations are necessary for better prognosis. Expand
Pneumonia
TLDR
New antibiotic and non-antibiotic therapies, in addition to rapid and accurate diagnostic tests that can detect pathogens and antibiotic resistance will improve the management of pneumonia. Expand
Pathogens of Aspiration Pneumonia Based on a Novel Approach: Are the Causative Bacteria Different from Those of CAP or HAP?
TLDR
The causative bacteria of aspiration pneumonia have greatly changed in the last five decades and it is usually difficult to evaluate whether oral bacteria are pathogenic or not in theLower respiratory tract infection when culture method using sputum that pass through the oral cavity from the lower respiratory tract is positive for oral bacteria. Expand
Aspiration risk factors, microbiology and empiric antibiotics for patients hospitalized with community-acquired pneumonia.
TLDR
Hospitalized patients with ACAP or CAP or CAP/AspRF+ had similar anaerobic flora compared to patients without aspiration risk factors, and a large proportion of CAP patients received anti-anaerobic antibiotic coverage. Expand
Normal Respiratory Flora as a Cause of Community-Acquired Pneumonia
TLDR
Normal respiratory flora, with or without viral coinfection, appear to have caused one quarter of cases of CAP and may have played a contributory role in an additional 10.8% of cases caused by RBPs. Expand
The Relationship Between the Risk of Aspiration Pneumonia and the Risk of Aspiration: Aspiration Risk and Aspiration Pneumonia Risk Are Not the Same?
TLDR
Consideration of the relationships between the pathogen, host, and environment is needed for a better understanding of the mechanisms that underlie aspiration pneumonia and for developing effective strategies for its prevention. Expand
Successful management of aspiration pneumopathy without antimicrobial agents: 14 dogs (2014-2021).
TLDR
In this case series, immunocompetent dogs sustaining aspiration events, even with classical evidence of pneumonitis or pneumonia, have been managed successfully without antimicrobials. Expand
Chest Radiographic and Chest CT Images of Aspiration Pneumonia: Are the Image Features of Aspiration Pneumonia Different from Those of Non-aspiration CAP or HAP?
TLDR
Chest shadowing with gravity dependence may not be specific to aspiration pneumonia, but it may be helpful for the diagnosis of aspiration pneumonia in conjunction with screening for aspiration risks. Expand

TLDR
Patients with unexplained chronic respiratory syndromes should be evaluated for gastric regurgitation and aspiration, and preventive measures should be employed in patients at high risk for aspiration. Expand
