Pneumonia Care

Pneumonia is a lung infection from a cold or upper respiratory problem. Lungs become congested and filled with fluid and breathing becomes difficult. The infection may be caused by bacteria, virus or fungi.

BayCare Medical Group Pediatric Extended Care at Carrollwood may order a chest X-ray. Antibiotics are prescribed for bacterial pneumonia and other medications are used for the pneumonia symptoms of cough, fever and wheezing.
