Abstract:

Ventilator associated pneumonia VAP is one of the most common healthcare associated infections causing significant morbidity and mortality in critically ill patients. It affects 10-25 of mechanically ventilated patients and carries up to a 13 attributable mortality. VAP adds 5-7 days to intensive care unit ICU length of stay and increases length of hospitalization by 10-12 days along with its concomitant costs.
