Nosocomial pneumonia, male (age 60), fever 103 for 3days. Antibiotic started 2days ago (augmentin, azithro). When will temp. normalize? Is it serious?
It can take a while: The condition sound serious. Nosocomial (hospital-acquired) infections are usually worse than "walking pneumonia" of the community. You'll be on antibiotics for 7-10 day (avg), & barring relapse, you start to feel better around that time. The fevers can persist until then, but usually dissipate in 2-3 days. If fevers persist, talk to your doc about changing antibiotics. Any lung infection is serious. ...Read more

They will also assess you for the use of oral steroids. Another chest Radiograph may be obtained at that time. ...Read more
Doctor thinks I have pneumonia.Started antiobiotics. Fever stopped. Heart rate very high (85-100). I'm worried, is it normal?
See below: It would not be unusual for you to have a mild to moderate increase in pulse rate during early treatment for pneumonia. 85-100 is not a very high heart rate. The fact that your fever is better suggests your antibiotic treatment is effective. If you are feeling better don't worry about a pulse of 85-100. It will return to your baseline after resolution of your pneumonia and any deconditioning. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
