Abstract

Community-acquired pneumonia (CAP) is one of the most frequent lung pathology. In cases with bacterial CAP early adequate empiric antibacterial therapy improves outcomes. Inadequate empiric antibiotic therapy increases resistance of nosocomial pathogens and worsens outcomes. Situation is much more confused in cases with viral pneumonia, complicated with acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS), required extracorporeal membrane oxygenation. We are presenting a serial of cases with viral pneumonia and ARDS with description and discussion of tactics and strategy of antimicrobial therapy.
