Abstract/Description: Cefotaxime, ceftriaxone, and respiratory fluoroquinolones are recommended for influenza-associated pneumonia. Oseltamivir and zanamivir can be used to reduce viral shedding in hospitalized patients with influenza, with or without pneumonia. (SOR C, based on consensus guidelines.) Early treatment of the influenza infection with oseltamivir or inhaled zanamivir is recommended for prevention of postinfluenza pneumonia. (SOR A, based on a meta-analysis.)
