	abstract = {Background: We hypothesized that children with viral pneumonia have higher severity of illness and higher mechanical ventilation (MV) requirement than children with bacterial pneumonia. We aim to compare respiratory support requirements of severe viral and bacterial pneumonia cases admitted to the pediatric intensive care unit (PICU).
Methods: This is a retrospective review of patients with microbiologically proven severe viral and bacterial pneumonia admitted to PICU in KK Women’s and Children’s Hospital, Singapore, from 2010 to 2014. Demographic, clinical and ventilatory data up to 14 days of PICU admission were extracted and analyzed. 
Results: Forty-nine and 68 patients had sole viral and bacterial pathogens, respectively. Patients with viral pneumonia were more likely to be },
