A study published subsequent to these guidelines found a fivefold increased risk for DRSP infection in alcohol abusers [57], although other studies have not found such a significant association [38, 58]. Anaerobic Pathogens Commensal anaerobes make up the dominant microbial population of the oropharynx [59] and although not particularly virulent, these pathogens are quite capable of causing pneumonia if they are aspirated into the lower airways. As a direct result of impaired consciousness and depressed cough reflex, alcohol intoxication facilitates the aspiration of substantial amounts of oropharyngeal secretions in which colonizing bacteria (commensal or otherwise) gain access to the usually sterile lower airways where they can cause pneumonia [60, 61].
