- Priority for Treatment and Intensive Care of Patients With Non-Severe Community-Acquired PneumoniaThe American Journal of the Medical SciencesVol. 356Issue 4
- PreviewThe Infectious Disease Society of America/the American Thoracic Society (IDSA/ATS) minor criteria for severe community-acquired pneumonia (CAP) are of unequal weight in predicting mortality. It is unclear whether the patients with non-severe CAP meeting the minor criteria most strongly associated to mortality should have the priority for treatment and intensive care. It is warranted to explore this intriguing hypothesis.
