Pneumonia is a respiratory condition in which there is infection of the lung.

Bronchodilator treatments such as albuterol may or may not be required depending on your symptoms.

I am amazed to find no evidence that supports the routine use of albuterol for pneumonia without additional pre-existing pulmonary problems. Investigating this question I was only able to find a protocol in the cochrane database from September 2010 that suggests this question is being investigated.
