The multistep road to ventilator-associated lung abscess: A retrospective study of S.aureus ventilator-associated pneumonia.

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...

Trendelenburg position in the ED: many critically ill patients in the emergency department do not tolerate the Trendelenburg position.

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...

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.

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.
