Severe community-acquired pneumonia leads to acute respiratory failure, which may require tracheal intubation and mechanical ventilation while proper antibiotic therapy is being established. In an appropriate setting, noninvasive ventilation may be considered for patients with severe community-acquired pneumonia following careful patient selection according to the available guidelines. These patients require constant assessment, evaluating the risk factors for noninvasive ventilation failure.

Abstract

Severe community-acquired pneumonia leads to acute respiratory failure, which may require tracheal intubation and mechanical ventilation while proper antibiotic therapy is being established. In an appropriate setting, noninvasive ventilation may be considered for patients with severe community-acquired pneumonia following careful patient selection according to the available guidelines. These patients require constant assessment, evaluating the risk factors for noninvasive ventilation failure.
