How to Treat Aspiration Pneumonia


Talk with your doctor about the best treatment plan for you. Treatment options include the following:

Antibiotics

Antibiotics are used to treat aspiration pneumonia. In some cases, you may need to go to the hospital to receive antibiotics directly into the veins through an IV (or intravenous catheter). In other cases, antibiotics taken by mouth may be used to treat the infection.

Breathing Assistance

In severe cases, aspiration pneumonia causes breathing problems. You may be placed on a machine to help with breathing.

If you are diagnosed with aspiration pneumonia, follow your doctor's instructions.
