Serious INFLAMMATION of the LUNG in patients who required the use of PULMONARY VENTILATOR. It is usually caused by cross bacterial infections in hospitals (NOSOCOMIAL INFECTIONS).

Lung damage that is caused by the adverse effects of PULMONARY VENTILATOR usage. The high frequency and tidal volumes produced by a mechanical ventilator can cause alveolar disruption and PULMONARY EDEMA.

Pneumonia due to aspiration or inhalation of various oily or fatty substances.

Pneumonia caused by infection with bacteria of the family RICKETTSIACEAE.

Severe complication of pneumonia characterized by liquefaction of lung tissue.
