Treat elderly patients hospitalized for community-acquired pneumonia early based on infection severity and risk factors

Treat elderly patients hospitalized for community-acquired pneumonia early based on infection... Community-acquired pneumonia is a frequent cause of morbidity and mortality in the elderly. Antimicrobial treatment should be initiated before the patient leaves the emergency department. Treatment is empirical and should cover typical pathogens and, if patient risk is identified, also atypical pathogens such as meticillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus and Pseudomonas aeruginosa. Special concerns in the elderly include the increased risk of adverse drug effects and comorbidity exacerbation. As prevention is ideal, patients should receive appropriate pneumococcus and influenza vaccinations. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Drugs & Therapy Perspectives Springer Journals
