    • Ventilator-associated pneumonia (VAP) is defined as an infection of the lung parenchyma developing during mechanical ventilation, usually after at least 2 days of positive-pressure ventilation delivered via an endotracheal tube [1, 2]. This time criterion aims to exclude pneumonias caused by infectious agents already present or incubating before mechanical ventilation is started [1]...

    A. R. DE GAUDIOet al. Gram-positive ventilator-associated pneumonia: impact on mortality

    • Ventilator-associated pneumonia (VAP) is a new (nosocomial) lower respiratory tract infection diagnosed in mechanically ventilated patients 48 or more hours after intubation. There is no gold standard for establishing the diagnosis and its pathogenesis is iatrogenic and multifactorial. Gastro-oesophageal reflux is common in mechanically ventilated children, but its role in VAP remains speculative. VAP is associated with increased mortality and morbidity, prolonged duration of ventilation and hospital stay, and escalated costs of hospitalisation...
