Abstract Due to overuse, we are about to reach the end of the antibiotic era. Each of us is responsible to limit their usage to a minimum. Respiratory infections are the first cause of antibiotic prescriptions. The use of new simple tests available at the bedside can be very useful in this context. The development of sophisticated molecular diagnostic tools, such as "multiorganism" panels, may revolutionize our approach to respiratory infections. The key will be to interpret the results correctly, with due consideration of the statement, "Treat patients, not lab results".
