ER visit rate due to Bacterial Pneumonia
Shows the age-adjusted emergency room visit rate per 100,000 population due to bacterial pneumonia. Pneumonia is an infection of the lungs that can cause mild to severe illness in people of all ages. Pneumonia can be caused by viruses, bacteria, and fungi. In the United States, common causes of viral pneumonia are influenza and respiratory syncytial virus (RSV), and a common cause of bacterial pneumonia is Streptococcus pneumoniae (pneumococcus). However, these infections can often be prevented with vaccines and can usually be treated with antibiotics, antiviral drugs (such as Tamiflu), or specific drug therapies. Common signs of pneumonia include cough, fever, and difficulty breathing.
