Tests and investigations

Antibiotic medications remain the main treatment of bacterial and fungal pneumonia. Viral pneumonia is self-limiting and usually resolves with time. Antipyretics may be taken for high temperature and antitussive agents for cough. Other measures that may contribute to the effective management of pneumonia include cessation of smoking, adequate rest, drinking plenty of fluids and performing breathing exercises. The prognosis of the disease depends upon the patient's health status and the severity of infection. In occasional cases, oxygen therapy or even ventilation support may be required.
