"Community-Acquired Pneumonia in Adults: Guidelines for Management"
Improving the care of adult
patients with community-acquired pneumonia (CAP) has been the focus of many

of CAP. Two of the most widely referenced are those of the Infectious
Diseases Society of America (IDSA) and the American Thoracic Society (ATS).
In response to confusion regarding differences between their respective
guidelines, the IDSA and the ATS convened a joint committee to develop a
unified CAP guideline document. Link
