What Is Pneumonia?

Pneumonia can occur when a person breathes bacteria into their lungs. As a result, the air sacs can become inflamed and may begin to fill with pus or fluid. Common symptoms of pneumonia include:

  • Chills
  • Fever
  • Breathing difficulties
  • Coughing

People are more likely to contract pneumonia shortly after having a cold or the flu, as these infections make it difficult for the lungs to fight off bacteria. Pneumonia usually clears up within two to three weeks, but in certain cases, complications can be extremely serious if not treated promptly.

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

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!"

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."

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."
