  • Severe community-acquired pneumonia (CAP) is an important cause of intensive care unit (ICU) admissions. Many different pneumonia scoring systems have been developed in order to assess the severity of pneumonia and to decide the ICU follow-up and treatment. But still debate is going on about their performances and also they have not been tested yet if they can predict ICU mortality in severe CAP patients requiring mechanical ventilation. The aim of this study is to evaluate the performances of… CONTINUE READING
