|Condition or disease|
This study aims to determine whether interpretations of bronchoscopic results enable physicians to successfully predict the presence of pneumonia in traumatically injured patients. Bronchoscopies will be videotaped. The clinician doing the procedure will make prediction as to whether the patient, in fact, has pneumonia. In addition, at least one other physician will view the videotape and predict whether the patient has pneumonia.
Once laboratory results are available, the physician predictions will be compared against the definitive laboratory determination

Patients receiving bronchoscopy
Patients suspected of having pneumonia received bronchoscopy to examine the lungs and to capture alveolar lavage culture
- Presence or absence of hospital-acquired pneumonia [ Time Frame: At first clinical suspicion of pneumonia. Average of hospital Day 4 ]When pneumonia is suspected, patient with undergo bronchoscopy. BAL specimens will be submitted to laboratory testing. Laboratory results are the definitive indication of pneumonia, or lack thereof.
Biospecimen Retention: Samples Without DNA
