Clinicoroentgenological variants of pulmonary complications were revealed in 96 (81%) out of 118 sepsis patients. In 55% of cases the disease emerged due to staphylococcal infection. Sepsis lesions of the lungs were analyzed clinically and classified according to respiratory insufficiency. The treatment oriented on pulmonary sepsis resulted in lowering of mortality (up to 17%). Measures to improve early diagnosis and to promote intensive treatment are under discussion.
