    Transcript

    00:00 So, in a nutshell.

    00:02 Pneumonia.

    00:03 It's caused by viral and bacterial pathogens.

    00:06 Some forms are contagious.

    00:09 Some forms are also vaccine-preventable.

    00:12 Signs and symptoms and the treatment of pneumonia depends on the patient's age and their comorbidities.

    00:19 Treatment of viral pneumonia is just symptomatic care and time, right? Antibiotics do not work for viral pneumonia.

    00:27 Treatment of bacterial pneumonia involves the use of antibiotics.

    00:31 In a <5 year-old child, the first line treatment is Amoxicillin, and in children > 5 years old, the first line treatment is a macrolide.

    00:39 Complications can range from mild to life-threatening.
