Pneumonia testing refers to medical examinations performed to detect the presence of pneumonia in any patient. Pneumonia is a disorder that causes inflammation in either one or both lungs in the human body. The elderly population has increased vulnerability to pneumonia as compared to the young population.

Some of the factors that can lead to pneumonia are reduced availability of safe drinking water, rise in prevalence of malnutrition, increase in air pollution levels, and reduced access to quality healthcare services, especially in countries suffering from poverty.
