Bacterial coinfection in influenza pneumonia: rates, pathogens, and outcomes.
Among patients hospitalized for influenza pneumonia, the researchers reported the rate of coinfection and distribution of pathogens and also compared outcomes of patients with and without bacterial coinfection. They found that, in a large US inpatient sample hospitalized with influenza and community-acquired pneumonia, Staphylococcus aureus was the most frequent cause of bacterial coinfection. Coinfection was associated with worse outcomes and higher costs.

Treatment and outcomes among patients ≥85 years hospitalized with community-acquired pneumonia.
This retrospective cohort study’s objective was to describe community-acquired pneumonia (CAP) among patients ≥85 years and compare them to patients aged 65-74. Findings showed that patients aged 85 and over have different comorbidities and etiologies of CAP, receive less intense treatment, and have greater mortality than patients between 65 and 75 years.
