ABSTRACT

Community-acquired pneumonia is a common diagnosis that can lead to mortality. Acid-suppressive drugs (ASDs) are used for the treatment of acid-related diseases. An acid-suppressive drug may increase the risk of community-acquired pneumonia. This study aimed to overview the association between ASDs and the risk of pneumonia. The online research process was performed to obtain articles related to the current subject using scientific websites and several keywords. Obtained articles were selected according to inclusion criteria. We obtained 16 articles, but we included only six articles according to inclusion criteria. The study concludes that there was a conflict in the results of studies and evidence regarding the role of ASDs in increasing the risk of pneumonia.

Keywords:
Association, ASDs, CAP, PPIs, risk.
