CAP Guidelines Available Online

In addition, the CAP in children guideline is being developed in both mobile device and pocketcard format for use at the point of care. These and other clinical tools, when available, can be accessed through the practice guidelines section of the IDSA website.

The guideline, which is the first on diagnosing and treating community-acquired pneumonia (CAP) in infants and children, focuses on the prevention of bacterial pneumonia as a top priority and provides all physicians who care for children with a roadmap to the most scientifically valid diagnosis and treatment recommendations.

The guideline was reviewed and endorsed by the American Academy of Pediatrics, the American College of Emergency Physicians, the American Thoracic Society, the American Society of Microbiology, the Society for Hospital Medicine, and the Society for Critical Care Medicine.
