|Spanish term or phrase: sobreinfección|
|Acudió el paciente por una sobreinfección respiratoria.|
Can anyone confirm this to be 'acute respiratory infection'?
With a ref if possible
Both explanations given are correct. The text you are translating surely refers to a secondary infection, or a complication of an existent disease. At least, that is the meaning of "superinfection".
You may want to check the following reference(s).

acute respiratory infection
You're right again, Ailish.
It's an acute respiratory infection.
In Spanish we say sobreinfección for those respiratory infections which are a complication of another disease (i.e. a patient with a cancer that presents with a respiratory infection) and for the repeated acute respiratory infections that chronic lung patients have. Infección respiratoria is used for "primary" respiratory infections, like pneumonias or colds... in people with no underlying disease.
I've added a ref of a clinical case report :-)
