Chlamydia Pneumonia (Part2)

Written by: Solaris Diagnostics

Individuals at Risk
Chlamydia Pneumonia affects people of all ages and spreads quickly in crowded areas. School-aged children and people in hospitals have a significant risk of infection. Older adults are at higher risk of reinfection and developing more severe symptoms.

Methods of Infection
Chlamydia Pneumonia is spread through respiratory excretions and commonly spread through households with how long it takes to develop symptoms. Symptoms may take around   3-4 weeks after the initial infection to appear and can last for several weeks.

Common Treatments
Milder cases can recover without medical intervention and antibiotics can be used to treat the illness however, if symptoms become too severe medical attention becomes necessary.

Chlamydia Pneumonia testing is offered at Solaris Diagnostics as part of the respiratory panel in which RT-PCR techniques are utilized to detect the presence of viral pathogens. Fast and accurate results are necessary for proper diagnosis and treatment of Chlamydia Pneumonia and at Solaris Diagnostics we provide a turn-around time (TAT) of 24 hours from the time the sample is received in the laboratory.

Solaris Diagnostics is a CLIA-certified and CAP-accredited medical laboratory testing facility serving clinicians, health care providers, and patients. We deliver industry-leading laboratory services backed by ongoing research that results in improved patient care and outcomes.
