PhysicianOne Urgent Care in Brookfield, Connecticut, offers same-day treatment for a wide array of non-life-threatening illnesses, including mild to moderate cases of pneumonia. Let’s take a closer look at this condition and how it’s treated.

What Are the Symptoms of Pneumonia?

Pneumonia is a lung infection that can result from bacteria, viruses, or fungi. The most common signs and symptoms of pneumonia include:

  • A frequent cough that may produce mucus
  • Fever, sweating, and/or chills
  • Fatigue
  • Chest tightness, especially when coughing or breathing deeply
  • Breathlessness
  • Nausea, vomiting, or diarrhea

Pneumonia symptoms can range from very mild (such as in cases of walking pneumonia) to potentially life threatening. Call 911 immediately or head to the nearest emergency room if any of the following symptoms occur:

  • Difficulty breathing
  • Bluish skin, lips, or fingernails
  • Intense chest pain or headache
  • A very high fever
  • Lethargy or confusion

How Is Pneumonia Treated?

Depending on what’s causing the infection, pneumonia treatment may involve a regimen of antibiotic or antifungal medications. If the infection is viral, medicines to help ease symptoms and methods to promote lung health may be recommended. PhysicianOne Urgent Care’s physician-led medical team can also rule out other causes of respiratory symptoms, such as COVID-19 and bronchitis, and monitor your health to help prevent complications and ensure you feel better as quickly as possible.

"The overall care I received was excellent! I also appreciate your affiliation with Yale New Haven Hospital."

Patient
Derby, CT

"Throughout the visit I felt like the staff really cared. The Doctor took his time talking with me about my symptoms, and I felt like he listened to all my concerns and took that into consideration when recommending the right treatment. Thank you!"

Patient
Hamden, CT

"I had to take my son in for an ear infection following a sudden change in temperament at daycare. He was inconsolable the entire car ride but when we got there and by the time we left this care facility he was back to his normal happy go lucky little two year old boy. I highly recommend PhysicianOne Urgent Care."

Patient
Westwood, MA

"I wanted to take a moment to thank you for the attention you gave me last week. My son was started on antibiotics and ear drops. Within 24 hours he began to feel better. The poor kid had been going to school in tears because he was afraid of missing any more days, but feeling (and looking) just awful! He's not been able to even think about lacrosse practice, but thanks to starting him on antibiotics, he was thrilled to return to practice today."
