Re: Topic 2 DQ 1
Singh, K., & Sharma. N. (2020). Clinical and laboratory parameters correlation with complications and mortality in community acquired pneumonia in a tertiary care hospital. Journal of Clinical & Diagnostic Research14(4), 26–30. Link-(please copy and paste the url in GCU library to view the article)Singh and Sharma (2020) conducted a prospective study to find out the clinical and biochemical profile of patients admitted with the diagnosis of community acquired pneumonia (CAP) and to see the association with various complication and outcomes. This study analyzed the various clinical and laboratory parameters and correlated with different outcomes in patients with CAP. This was a prospective, observational hospital study held at the emergency and medicine ward at a tertiary hospital in India, between 2018 to 2019. The inclusion criteria for the study was patients over the age of 18 years with clinical signs and symptoms suggestive of pneumonia which was confirmed with radiological evidence of infiltrates consistent with consolidation. The sample size was 130 and the age of the participants ranged from 18-90 years.

The researchers found that early diagnosis, prompt severity scoring, early sepsis management and monitoring could reduce mortality in CAP (Singh & Sharma, 2020). Managing comorbid conditions such as diabetes, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, hypertension, and others need to be managed precisely to prevent adverse outcomes due to CAP.

The researchers calculated the sample size on the on the basis of 95% confidence level and 10% anticipated difference between detection rate of pneumonia, which is an appropriate way to calculate the sample size (Rayan, 2018). Though the sample size calculated was 116, a total of 130 were included to adjust dropouts during the study (Singh & Sharma, 2020).
