On this episode, we discuss treating community-acquired pneumonia. We start with the outpatient treatment options based on the 2019 IDSA CAP guidelines. We also discuss managing a patient that has been admitted. We review some reasons to use more broad-spectrum empiric therapy, and close by mentioning the new Prevnar 20 vaccine.
