Hospital-acquired bacterial pneumonia (HABP) and ventilator-associated bacterial pneumonia (VABP) are among the most prevalent acute infections that occur in hospitalized patients, particularly those in the intensive care unit, and are associated with high mortality risk. Both HABP and VABP are associated with increased utilization of health care resources and greater likelihood of death. Many challenges are associated with managing these disease conditions, but none are greater than the battle against antibiotic resistance. Clinically available potent antibiotics that are active against gram-negative pathogens, such as carbapenem-resistant pathogens, are becoming increasingly scarce in the current era of antibiotic resistance. In this podcast series, expert clinicians discuss the burden of these new infections and the role of new therapies to treat them.
