Pneumonia - a simple term with many implications. Pneumonia can be caused by any number of causative organisms, affect any one or more than one area of the lungs, be acquired in either the community or in a healthcare setting, and can even be further classified by how it occurs (for example, aspiration pneumonia or ventilator-associated pneumonia). This latest collection of resources encompasses all that and more.
