Talk Evidence - Radiation, fertility, and pneumonia
Helen Macdonald and Carl Heneghan are back again talking about what's happened in the world of evidence this month. They start by talking about how difficult a task it is to find evidence that's definitely practice changing, what GPs can learn from Malawian children with nonsevere fast-breathing pneumonia, how radiation dosage varies...

Improving how antibiotics are prescribed by physicians working in hospital settings
Antibiotics are a mainstay of hospital care, widely used to treat bacterial infections, such as pneumonia. However amidst increasing concerns about antibiotic resistance, it ’s important to ensure that they are prescribed carefully.

Antibiotic Therapy for Community-Acquired Pneumonia in Adults
Community acquired pneumonia accounts for 600,000 hospital admissions a year. Many patients with this disease are quite ill and have a very high mortality. To save lives, the appropriate antibiotics should be given in a timely basis, but it is not clear what the best antibiotics are and how long they should be given. In this podcast we interview the author of a JAMA review on community acquired pneumonia, Dr Jonathan Lee, author of Antibiotic Therapy for Adults Hospitalized With Community-Acquired Pneumonia, who performed a systematic review of the literature to determine the best way to treat community acquired pneumonia....

Summary Points: Influenza vaccine remains the best available tool for prevention of severe influenza illness commonly associated with bacterial coinfection. Early empirical antiviral and antibiotic therapy should be administered to all individuals with suspected coinfection. Vancomycin or linezolid should be administered in addition to standard therapy for community-acquired pneumonia to patients with severe or necrotizing pneumonia and/or evidence of sepsis.
