Antimicrobial Stewardship Program and Ventilator Associated Pneumonia

2019-09-26 05:42:42 | BioPortfolio


Antibiotic Stewardship Programs (ASPs) help clinicians improve the quality of patient care and improve patient safety through increased infection cure rates, reduced treatment failures; however, there are different techniques, with variable results, of its application including what is called ASPs bundle and there is a need to investigate the effectiveness of implementing a comprehensive care bundle program including the key components of ASPs and the key items of infection control measures, this program can be called Antimicrobial Stewardship Comprehensive Care Bundle Program (ASCCBP).


Survey experimental study will be done in the first 6 months as regard antimicrobial drugs pattern and organism's sensitivity and resistance pattern in VAP patients.

In the next six months, clinical implementation of ASPs and infection control bundle will be applied on VAP patients. Then, in the later six months the investigators will study the outcome of VAP patients as regard:

- Amount of cost of antibiotics.

- Appropriates of antibiotic use (initiation, duration & time of discontinuation).

- Rate of resistance

- Clinical outcome, infection rate &length of stay.

Regular reports on antibiotic use and resistance will be admitted to relevant staff every one month. Also, audit and feedback about resistance and optimal prescribing will be applied every one month for ICU stuff as an open discussion.

The stewardship consulting team will include microbiologist with clinical experience in the field of antibiotic use and infection control. Stewardship team also will include the relevant ICU staff and an experienced clinical pharmacist.

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.

Programs and guidelines for selecting optimal ANTI-INFECTIVE AGENTS regimens in an effort to maintain antibiotic efficacy, reduce CROSS INFECTION related to ANTIBIOTIC RESISTANCE while managing satisfactory clinical and economic outcomes.

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).

Activities and programs intended to assure or improve the quality of care in either a defined medical setting or a program. The concept includes the assessment or evaluation of the quality of care; identification of problems or shortcomings in the delivery of care; designing activities to overcome these deficiencies; and follow-up monitoring to ensure effectiveness of corrective steps.
