BACKGROUND Although a number of studies on the role of periodontitis in the development of nosocomial pneumonia (NP) have been published, the debate surrounding the existence and nature of this association continues. The present study investigates the influence of periodontitis in NP. METHODS This case-control study involved 315 individuals: 85 cases (with NP) and 230 controls (without NP), at a general hospital in Feira de Santana, Bahia, Brazil. Sociodemographic characteristics, health…

Association Between Periodontitis and Nosocomial Pneumonia: A Systematic Review and Meta-analysis of Observational Studies.

A positive association between periodontitis and nosocomial pneumonia in intensive care unit (ICU) patients is demonstrated and the evidence demonstrates a positive association.

The Association of Periodontal Treatment and Decreased Pneumonia: A Nationwide Population-Based Cohort Study

This nationwide population-based study indicated that the patients with periodontal treatment exhibited a significantly lower risk of pneumonia than the general population.

[Prevalence of severe periodontal disease and its association with respiratory disease in hospitalized adult patients in a tertiary care center].

High prevalence of severe periodontal disease was observed in the different respiratory diseases and was associated with both infectious and non-infectious respiratory diseases.

Association between oral health and incidence of pneumonia: a population-based cohort study from Korea

It is indicated that improved oral health may reduce the risk of pneumonia in the general population and regardless of age and comorbidities, oral health status and oral hygiene behaviors were associated with pneumonia.

Pulmonary disease and periodontal health: a meta-analysis

There is a strong association between pulmonary disease and periodontal health and clinical trials analyzing the causality and pathological basis of the association of these two diseases are needed.

P. Intermedia and periodontitis are associated with severe asthma.

The present results suggest that periodontitis and P. intermedia are associated with severe asthma, however, the functional consequences of this dysbiosis upon asthma susceptibility and its phenotypes remains unclear.

Periodontal disease and pneumonia mortality in haemodialysis patients: A 7‐year cohort study

The results of this study suggest that periodontal disease is independently associated with pneumonia mortality in haemodialysis patients.

Tooth loss and pneumonia mortality: A cohort study of Japanese dentists

A large number of teeth lost may indicate an increased risk of mortality from pneumonia in community-dwelling populations.

The Association between Tannerella forsythia and the Onset of Fever in Older Nursing Home Residents: A Prospective Cohort Study

Bacterial burden of T. forsythia in the oral cavity was associated with the risk of the onset of fever in older nursing homes residents.

Relación entre enfermedad periodontal y afecciones respiratorias en pacientes ingresados en sala de Medicina Interna

There is a relationship between acute and chronic decompensated periodontal and respiratory diseases and both diseases have common risk factors.



Periodontitis and nosocomial lower respiratory tract infection: preliminary findings.

A marginal association between periodontitis and LRTI was found when smoking, age and length of hospitalization were included as covariates and this could explain the possible association of periodontal disease and L RTI found in this and other studies.

Association between respiratory disease in hospitalized patients and periodontal disease: a cross-sectional study.

The findings of the present analysis support an association between respiratory and periodontal disease.

Fatores associados à pneumonia nosocomial em indivíduos hospitalizados

The findings indicate that arterial hypertension, length of hospital stay of five days and lack of dental floss and mouthwash use are factors likely associated with nosocomial pneumonia, suggesting that these factors should be targeted for effective prevention.

Associations between periodontal disease and risk for nosocomial bacterial pneumonia and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. A systematic review.

A meta-analysis was performed on the 5 intervention studies to determine the relationship between oral hygiene intervention and rate of pneumonia in institutionalized patients and the results associating periodontal disease and COPD are preliminary.

[The role of the oral flora in the pathogenesis of aspiration pneumonia].

The significance of pathogen microorganisms originating from the oral cavity in the development of bacterial pneumonia is reviewed and recent directions of actual researches and proposals to minimize the incidence of this disease are summarized.

Effect of oral decontamination with chlorhexidine on the incidence of nosocomial pneumonia: a meta-analysis

The use of oral decontamination with chlorhexidine did not result in significant reduction in the incidence of nosocomial pneumonia in patients who received mechanical ventilation, nor altered the mortality rate.

Significant Reduction of Nosocomial Pneumonia after Introduction of Disinfection of Upper Airways Using Povidone-Iodine in Geriatric Wards

It is indicated that disinfection of the upper airways by povidone-iodine is very important in the prevention of nosocomial pneumonia in geriatric wards.

The Association Between Oral Microorgansims and Aspiration Pneumonia in the Institutionalized Elderly: Review and Recommendations

Overall, studies suggest an association between poor oral hygiene and respiratory pathogens, a decrease in the incidence of respiratory complications when patients are provided chemical or mechanical interventions for improved oral care, and the complex nature of periodontal disease and aspiration pneumonia make direct connections between the two challenging.

Epidemiologic surveillance of nosocomial infections in a Pediatric Intensive Care Unit of a developing country

One of every 5 children acquires an NI in the PICU from a developing country and its presence was associated with increased mortality and length of stay, and at the same time a longer stay wasassociated with an increased risk of developing NI.
