Aspiration pneumonia in the elderly

Aspiration pneumonia mainly refers to the pulmonary inflammatory lesions caused by the secretion of oronasopharynx and the reflux of stomach and esophagus mistakenly inhaled into the lower respiratory tract to reach the alveoli and terminal respiratory tract. Inhalation is the most common way for pathogenic microorganisms to enter the lower respiratory tract, so aspiration pneumonia accounts for a large proportion in senile pneumonia.
