Hospital-acquired pneumonia (HAP) is one of the most commonly encountered nosocomial infections.

A large body of scientific literature about HAP now exists. This article summarizes the current state of knowledge concerning severe HAP with an emphasis on recent advances in its diagnosis, treatment, and prevention.
