[Comparative analysis of the treatment of inpatients with community-acquired pneumonia and its different outcomes].

[Article in Russian]


The aim of the work was to compare the quality of medical care provided to patients with severe community-acquired pneumonia (CAP) and its different outcomes. (complete recovery, or death--25 patients in either group). In the latter group, the patients did not undergo adequate clinical and instrumental examination at the pre-hospital stage). Most recovered patients were given high doses of ceftriaxone, clarithromycin and ambroxol or low doses of systemic glucocorticoids. A pulmonologist participated in the treatment of these patients twice as frequently as in the treatment of the patients of the latter group. Effects of high doses of systemic glucocorticoids remains debatable.
