2 Hospital-Acquired, Ventilator-Associated, and Healthcare-Associated Pneumonia Hospital-Acquired, Ventilator-Associated, and HealthcareAssociated Pneumonia (HAP, VAP, and HCAP) are important causes of morbidity and mortality despite advances in antimicrobial therapy, better supportive care, and a wide range of preventive measures. HAP incidence varies between 5 and 15 cases per 1,000 hospital admissions. Pneumonia in ventilated patients is 6to 20-fold higher than in non-mechanically ventilated patients.

Both former SIRS (systemic inflammatory response syndrome) criteria and organ dysfunction criteria are present. These items are based both on clinical and laboratory parameters. Severe sepsis is defined as sepsis with an organ dysfunction. Interestingly, over the years, tissue perfusion variables, especially lactatemia, have received great attention, and a threshold value of hyperlactatemia is nowadays included in the definition of severe sepsis, defining sepsis as “severe” also without clear organ involvement.
