Pneumonia Treatment: Should We Be Giving More Than An Antibiotic?

Ancillary therapies are any medication other than an antibiotic given for the treatment of a disease. This presentation will examine the data around the use of ancillary therapies in pneumonia treatment and the benefits, if any, they can provide.
