Summary of "A Comparison of Outcomes of Trauma Patients with Ventilator- Associated Events by Diagnostic Criteria Set."

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention replaced the definition for ventilator-associated pneumonia with an algorithm comprised of three categories-ventilator associated condition (VAC), infection -related ventilator associated complication (IVAC) and possible ventilator associated pneumonia (PVAP). We sought to compare the outcome of trauma patients with VAEs to those with No VAEs.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Serious INFLAMMATION of the LUNG in patients who required the use of PULMONARY VENTILATOR. It is usually caused by cross bacterial infections in hospitals (NOSOCOMIAL INFECTIONS).

Lung damage that is caused by the adverse effects of PULMONARY VENTILATOR usage. The high frequency and tidal volumes produced by a mechanical ventilator can cause alveolar disruption and PULMONARY EDEMA.

Comparison of various psychological, sociological, or cultural factors in order to assess the similarities or diversities occurring in two or more different cultures or societies.

Specialized hospital facilities which provide diagnostic and therapeutic services for trauma patients.

Overwhelming emotional damage caused by a distressful event or series of events.
