Four clinical signs can improve GP pneumonia diagnosis, finds study

Comment

ha ha but im surprised significant breathlessness wasn't useful. I wonder if this is because of the asthmatics and of course even the urtis get slight sob or say so until you dig deeper to what they mean but I would think rapid resp rate in non-asthmatic with a cough would be good case for pneumonia even if temp etc ok?
