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.

To compare the prevalence of infection applying the proposed pediatric ventilator-associated events criteria versus clinician-diagnosed ventilator-associated infection to subjects in the pediatric ven...
In January 2013, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released new surveillance definitions for ventilator-associated event (VAE) to replace ventilator-associated pneumonia (VAP) in adult pa...
Ventilator-associated pneumonia is the second most common nosocomial infection in pediatric intensive care. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recently issued diagnosis criteria for pediat...
The ODYSSEY OUTCOMES trial compared alirocumab with placebo, added to high-intensity or maximum tolerated statin treatment, after acute coronary syndrome (ACS) in 18,924 patients. Alirocumab reduced t...
An integral part of ventilator-associated pneumonia (VAP) therapy is the appropriate choice of empiric antibiotics. Our previous experience demonstrated adherence to an empiric therapy pathway was ass...
Head trauma and severe cerebral hemorrhage are major risk factors for development of ventilator-associated pneumonia. In a previous open labelled, single center study the investigators sho...
This study will examine the prevalence of patient-ventilator asynchrony and its determinants. Mechanically ventilated trauma patients often experience asynchrony when their pattern of bre...
The aim of this study is to determine the prevalence of ventilator-associated events (VAE). To analyze the patients profile, morbidity and mortality compared to patients who did not develo...
To discover whether different types of ventilation breathing tube influence ventilation effect of children/ neonate, the investigators analysis tidal volume, end tidal carbon dioxide, comp...
The purpose of this study is to determine whether an experienced anesthesia provider can adequately and/or easily mask ventilate an anesthetized patient with a commercial non-invasive vent...
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.

Pneumonia (bronchopneumonia, lobar pneumonia and double pneumonia) is inflammation (swelling) of the tissue in one or both of your lungs. It is usually caused by an pneumococcal infection caused by bacteria called Streptococcus pneumoniae. However,...
