Example text

A sedentary lifestyle has been linked to 28% of deaths from leading chronic diseases. Worldwide, approxi­ mately 30% of adults are physically inactive. Inactivity rates are higher in women, those from high-income countries (such as the Americas), and increase with age. Among teens aged 1 3 - 1 5, 80% report doing fewer than 60 minutes of physical activity of moderate to vigorous intensity per day, and boys are more active than girls. The US Department of Health and Human Services and the CDC recommend that adults and older adults engage in 1 50 minutes of moderate-intensity (such as brisk walk­ ing) or 75 minutes of vigorous-intensity (such as j ogging or running) aerobic activity or an equivalent mix of moderate­ and vigorous-intensity aerobic activity each week.

The relationship between specific clinical findings and the probability of pneumonia is shown in Table 2- 1 . A large, multicenter randomized clinical trial found that elevated serum C-reactive protein (levels greater than 30 mg/dL) improves diagnostic accuracy of clinical prediction rules for pneumonia in adults with acute cough. In patients with dyspnea, pulse oximetry and peak flow help exclude hypoxemia or obstructive airway disease. However, a nor­ mal pulse oximetry value (eg, greater than 93%) does not rule out a significant alveolar-arterial (A-a) gradient when patients have effective respiratory compensation.

Addi­ tional features of infection such as fever, nasal congestion, and sore throat help confirm this diagnosis. Dyspnea (at rest or with exertion) may reflect a more serious condition, and further evaluation should include assessment of oxy­ genation (pulse oximetry or arterial blood gas measure­ ment), airflow (peak flow or spirometry) , and pulmonary parenchymal disease (chest radiography) . The timing and character of the cough are not very useful in establishing the cause of acute cough syndromes, although cough­ variant asthma should be considered in adults with promi­ nent nocturnal cough, and persistent cough with phlegm increases the likelihood of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD ) .
