Pneumonia Research at CHEO

Despite how common pediatric pneumonia is, the optimal duration of antibiotic treatment for it has not yet been defined. The Infectious Disease Society of America currently recommends 10 days of treatment for mild pneumonia but they note that this guideline is based on very little evidence. This is an important question to address because determining the proper length of antibiotic treatment for a given condition is extremely important.. The goal of this study at CHEO is to determine whether fewer days of antibiotic is an acceptable alternative for the treatment of mild paediatric pneumonia.
