Respiratory Viral Infections
Some viruses are thought to induce modifications of the pulmonary defences by:
- Damaging the upper respiratory tract, thereby facilitating bacterial attachment and colonisation, with reduced mucociliary clearance
- Decreasing surfactant levels by destroying Type 2 pneumonocytes
- Impairing the phagocytic ability of alveolar macrophages
