This review highlights the current state of the problem of nosocomial pneumonia and nosocomial tracheobronchitis. The important concept for nosocomial tracheobronchitis, the role of inhaled antibiotics in the treatment of this condition and their ability to prevent the development of nosocomial pneumonia are discussed.

Keywords: nosocomial pneumonia, nosocomial tracheobronchitis, sepsis, antibiotics, inhalation, colistin, tobramycin
