This is a multicentre, multinational, prospective observational investigation on ICU critically ill patients affected by nosocomial pneumonia, defined as: Out of ICU Hospital-acquired Pneu...
Although propofol is widely used as an induction agent for a general anesthesia, it can induce a profound hypotension, which leads to the hypo-perfusion of end organs and eventually increa...
the management of Ventilator-associated pneumonia (VAP) caused by multidrug-resistant (MDR) gram-negative bacilli (GNB) represent a real therapeutic dilemma in intensive care unit (ICU). C...
The purpose of this study is to determine if administering inhaled antibiotics directly into the lungs in conjunction with intravenous (IV) antibiotics leads to better outcomes and decreas...
Ventilator-associated pneumonia (VAP) is the leading cause of death among all nosocomial infections in ventilated patients. Once intubated, the risk of pneumonia in hospitalized patients ...
The lateral Trendelenburg position (LTP) may hinder the primary pathophysiologic mechanism of ventilator-associated pneumonia (VAP). We investigated whether placing patients in the LTP would reduce th...
To promote standardization, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention introduced a new ventilator-associated pneumonia classification, which was modified for pediatrics (pediatric ventilator-asso...
Risk of optic nerve injury after prolonged Trendelenburg's position Postoperative loss of vision due to acute ischaemic optic nerve injury is a rare complication following pelvic surgery. A steep Tren...
We observed some cases of lung abscess (LA) in ICU patients suffering S.aureus ventilator-associated pneumonia (S.aureus-VAP). We aimed to assess which of the host and/or bacteria-related features are...
Critically ill patients in emergency departments (ED) frequently require catheterization of the internal jugular vein. For jugular insertion, the Trendelenburg position (TP) is recommended. However, m...
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.
Pneumonia caused by infection with bacteria of the family RICKETTSIACEAE.
Pneumonia due to aspiration or inhalation of various oily or fatty substances.
Severe complication of pneumonia characterized by liquefaction of lung tissue.
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,...
