TABLE 59-6 Prediction of Mortality from Pneumonia

TABLE 59-6 Prediction of Mortality from Pneumonia

Emergency physicians play a role in educating patients about their disease. Most patients will achieve some measure of resolution within 3 to 5 days after the initiation of antibiotics. Large population studies have demonstrated, however, that many patients are still symptomatic at 30 days, with a significant minority of patients experiencing chest pain, malaise, or mild dyspnea even 2 to 3 months after treatment. Patients should be educated about the importance of smoking cessation and moderation of alcohol use. Patients should receive instructions about rest, nutrition, hydration, and follow-up. Patients at risk should be educated about the importance of vaccination against pneumococcus and influenza.
