Types of Lung Infections

Latent TB Infection
TB infection has the ability to lie dormant for long periods. A latent TB Infection does not show any symptoms and can be detected only with extensive Lung Tests. The antibiotic, isoniazid (INH) is usually used for Latent Tuberculosis Treatment. Regular evaluation, of the affects of the drug, is then done to ensure that there are no major side effects. There also maybe a prescription of vitamin B6 (pyridoxine) to prevent the risks of side-effects, which is high especially in the elderly.

Active TB
Active TB is the stage when the patient is actively showing the symptoms of the disease and is also capable of communicating it to others. Active TB can take life threatening forms and should be treated as soon as possible. A combination of antibiotics like isoniazid, rifampin, pyrazinamide, or ethambutol is usually prescribed to stop the infection from emerging and multiplying.

Multidrug-Resistant TB
This is the most dangerous form of TB. Multidrug-Resistant TB infection occurs when the infecting bacteria develops resistance to multiple antibiotics. This happens with mutation of certain strains of the bacteria. The treatment for Multidrug-Resistant TB involves strict adherence of the prescribed course of medicines and admitting of the patient to a clinic providing Sleep Cure Solutions.
