Detailed Description:

Randomized Controlled Clinical Trial in hospitalized adult patients with hospital-acquired pneumonia. The patients are allocated to conventional group or nebulized colistin group. The conventional group receives conventional antibiotics whereas the nebulized colistin group receives nebulized colistin in addition to conventional antibiotics. The outcomes are clinical response and microbiological responses.
