Pneumonia needs to be treated in time. In addition to bed rest, a large amount of drinking water, oxygen inhalation, and active expectoration, the most important link in the treatment of pneumonia is anti infection. The treatment of bacterial pneumonia is included in the treatment of pathogens and empirical treatment. According to the results of sputum culture and drug sensitivity test, the former selected sensitive antibiotics in vitro, and the latter mainly selected antimicrobial agents that might cover pathogens based on epidemiological data of pneumonia pathogens in this area. In addition, according to the age of the patient, the basic disease, the severity of the disease, whether there is a mistaken aspiration and other factors, the selection of antibiotics and the way of drug delivery.
Clinical symptoms effectively as the temperature decreased, the improvement of symptoms, clinical stability, white blood cells decreased gradually and returned to normal, and the X-ray absorption is relatively late, such as 72 hours after the symptoms improve, the reasons may be: the drug failed to cover the pathogen, or bacterial resistance, such as Mycobacterium tuberculosis, fungi, viruses etc. special pathogen infection.

The first is chest pain, which is usually accompanied by severe chest pain. It is basically the kind of acupuncture, which is aggravated with cough or deep breathing, and it can radiate to the shoulders or abdomen. You are like the lower lobe pneumonia that can stimulate the pleura to cause severe abdominal pain, and sometimes it will be misdiagnosed as an acute abdomen.
Then there is the problem there will be fever, sometimes suddenly began to shiver, slowly fever, body temperature can be as high as forty degrees, often accompanied by headache and muscle ache, appetite will be reduced accordingly, may ease in use after the use of antibiotics.
There is also a problem of dyspnea. Pneumonia can lead to dyspnea. Pneumonia can lead to insufficient ventilation and chest pain and toxemia, which can cause dyspnea and rapid and shallow breathing. Serious illness affecting gas exchange, the arterial oxygen desaturation and cyanosis.
