Key Treatment

Treating uncomplicated community-acquired pneumonia with a macrolide or respiratory quinolone has no proven treatment advantage over cephalosporin or aminopenicillin therapy (Mills et al., 2005; Shefet et al., 2005), unless patients have significant comorbidities or other risk factors (IDSA/ATS, 2007) (SOR: A). Oral antibiotic therapy for uncomplicated CAP is safe and effective in outpatient or inpatient settings in patients younger than 65 years with no preexisting lung disease or other chronic disease with stable vital signs and no evidence of hypoxia or sepsis ((Bjerre et al., 2004; Marras et al., 2004) (SOR: A). Influenza vaccination and pneumococcal vaccine are demonstrably effective among elderly patients and those with chronic disease (Vu et al., 2002) (SOR: A).
