Acquired subglottic stenosis caused by methicillin resistant Staphylococcus aureus that produce epidermal cell differentiation inhibitor. (1/54)

Local infection of the trachea in intubated neonates is one of the main risk factors for development of acquired subglottic stenosis, although its role in the pathogenesis is unclear. Methicillin resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) is often the cause of critical illness in neonatal patients. Two cases are reported of acquired subglottic stenosis following bacterial infection of the trachea, suggesting an association with the staphylococcal exotoxin, epidermal cell differentiation inhibitor (EDIN). EDIN-producing MRSA were isolated from purulent tracheal secretions from both infants. Acquired subglottic stenosis in both cases was probably caused by delayed wound healing as the result of EDIN inhibition of epithelial cell migration.  (+info)

New approaches to the management of subglottic stenosis in Wegener's granulomatosis. (2/54)

Further development of conservative endoscopic procedures at the CCF has provided patients with dependable surgical adjuncts to the systemic medications of WG. In most instances, a single surgical dilatation procedure stabilizes the patients at an airway diameter that exceeds 50% of the norm, thereby rendering the patient almost asymptomatic at rest and minimally restricted during exercise. The more chronic patients presenting with history of previous surgical procedures performed on their larynx and trachea, usually in other institutions, have been observed to require consecutive treatments after the original treatment, enjoying shorter symptom-free intervals. We have not encountered any local complications such as damage to the vocal cords, altered voice, or compromised structural integrity of the larynx and the trachea. The procedure has been found to be effective and well-tolerated as a means for treating, maintaining, and rehabilitating patients with chronic airway obstruction, particularly in those that have been initially treated by our service, and those that were managed from the very beginning of their disease. However, even the more difficult and complicated cases clearly demonstrate an improvement in their condition through the above treatment protocol, and the interval between treatments gradually increases in this group as well. The more aggressive long-term tube-free tracheostomy procedure, usually performed only on difficult and select patients with severe complications, has proven itself to be a highly gratifying procedure, achieving a permanent mode of management for these patients which safely allows for almost complete freedom from symptoms combined with good tolerance and functional rehabilitation. Video documentation will serve to further demonstrate the beneficial effects of both these modes of treatment.  (+info)

Double respiratory sequelae of head injury: subglottic stenosis and bilateral pneumothoraces. (3/54)

An 18-yr-old man with insulin-dependent diabetes developed severe subglottic stenosis after a very brief period of intubation. Emergency tracheostomy was complicated by the development of bilateral pneumothoraces. This case highlights the importance of making an early diagnosis to minimize the risk of complications and examines postintubation subglottic stenosis in the context of poorly controlled insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus.  (+info)

Laryngeal trauma. (4/54)

Laryngeal trauma may be obscured by associated injuries of the face and chest. An early assessment of these injuries should be made. Many cases may require observation only. In patients with severe laryngeal fractures, preservation of the airway and control of hemorrhage must first be assured. Following this, splinting by external or internal means should be carried out. Three severe laryngeal injuries were splinted with open and closed plastic moulds, with satisfactory results. It is proposed that early recognition and proper management of severe cases of this nature would shorten the treatment and achieve the best results.  (+info)

Neonatal post-intubation subglottic stenosis. (5/54)

Acquired subglottic stenosis is a compication or neonatal endotracheal intubation. Although it is rare, it contributes significantly to the morbidity and physical well being of post extubated neonates. A 20-day old neonate, ventilated for meconium aspiration syndrome and persistent fetal circulation, presented with marked stridor and respiratory embarrassment. A stenosed subglottic area was found on rigid bronchoscopy. Anterior cricoid split was performed to relieve the obstruction. He is asymptomatic post operatively.  (+info)

Use of a ProSeal laryngeal mask airway and a Ravussin cricothyroidotomy needle in the management of laryngeal and subglottic stenosis causing upper airway obstruction. (6/54)

We report the successful use of a ProSeal laryngeal mask airway (PLMA) as a dedicated airway to allow fibre-optic inspection and passage through a tightly stenosed glottic and subglottic lesion, before fibre-optic-guided transtracheal placement of a Ravussin needle and jet ventilation. The described technique avoided both tracheostomy and the potential of 'seeding' the tumour by passage of the needle through the mass. The PLMA may be a useful 'dedicated airway' and has several advantages over the classic LMA(double dagger) and intubating LMA when used for this purpose. These include improved airway seal and reduced risk of aspiration. Four other cases of use of the PLMA as a dedicated airway during management of difficult airways are discussed. double daggerLMA is the property of Intavent Ltd.  (+info)

Effects of helium on high frequency jet ventilation in model of airway stenosis. (7/54)

BACKGROUND: The addition of helium to the inspired gas may facilitate ventilation in the presence of clinically evident upper airway obstruction. However, there are no data on the effects of using a helium-oxygen mixture during high frequency jet ventilation (HFJV) in upper airway obstruction. METHODS: HFJV at a frequency of 150 min(-1) (driving pressure 2 bar, inspiratory time 30%) was applied to a trachea-lung model to simulate ventilation through varying degrees of fixed laryngotracheal stenosis (2.5-8.5 mm). HFJV was delivered from above, through and below the level of stenosis to simulate supraglottic, transglottic and infraglottic administration. Measurements of distal tracheal pressures were repeated for each route at steady state for each stenosis diameter using both 100% oxygen and helium-oxygen (50% oxygen, 50% helium). The output of the ventilator was measured during operation on oxygen and helium-oxygen. RESULTS: Peak, mean and end-expiratory pressures were greater during simulated supraglottic HFJV than during transglottic and infraglottic HFJV, and pressures increased markedly as the diameter of the stenosis decreased for all routes of ventilation (P<0.001). Generated pressures during HFJV using helium-oxygen and 100% oxygen were very similar overall, although reductions in pressures were observed during ventilation with helium-oxygen via the transglottic and transtracheal routes at stenosis diameters <4 mm (P<0.05). However, HFJV with the helium-oxygen mixture increased the delivered gas volumes by approximately 18%. CONCLUSIONS: Using 50% helium-oxygen during HFJV in the presence of airway stenosis allows an 18% increase in minute volume at generated airway pressures which are the same as or lower than those when using 100% oxygen.  (+info)

Superimposed high-frequency jet ventilation (SHFJV) for endoscopic laryngotracheal surgery in more than 1500 patients. (8/54)

BACKGROUND: Superimposed high-frequency jet ventilation (SHFJV), which does not require any tracheal tubes or catheters, was developed specifically for use in laryngotracheal surgery. SHFJV uses two jet streams with different frequencies simultaneously and is applied in the supraglottic space using a jet laryngoscope and jet ventilator. METHODS: Between 1990 and 2004, SHFJV was studied in 1515 consecutive patients (including 158 children requiring laryngotracheal surgery) prospectively. Ventilation was performed with an air/oxygen mixture and anaesthesia was administered i.v. RESULTS: Adequate oxygenation and ventilation was achieved in 1512 patients. Arterial blood gas analyses (BGA) were performed between 1990 and 1994; thereafter BGA was only performed in patients with high-grade stenosis of the larynx/trachea or high-risk patients [n=623, mean Pa(O(2)) 133.8 (39.4) mm Hg and mean Pa(CO(2)) 42.3 (10.1) mm Hg]. There were no significant changes in Pa(O(2)) or Pa(CO(2)) during the entire period of SHFJV. No complications secondary to the ventilation technique were observed; in particular, no barotrauma occurred. Three patients required tracheal intubation. SHFJV was also successfully used for laser surgery (n=312). It proved to be a safe mode of ventilation without any complications such as airway fire, major haemorrhage, or aspiration of debris. CONCLUSION: SHFJV is an advanced ventilation mode playing a pivotal role in the (open) ventilatory support/ventilation of patients with laryngotracheal stenosis. It is particularly indicated in cases of severe stenosis and offers optimal conditions for laryngotracheal surgery, including laser surgery and stent implantation techniques.  (+info)

Patients undergoing dilation for laryngotracheal stenosis require multiple procedures. However, major reconstructive procedures are well tolerated and currently represent a viable primary treatment for laryngotracheal stenosis.
Many surgical procedures, including laryngotracheal expansion with or without grafting, have been suggested for repairing laryngotracheal stenosis in children, and although a variety of stents have been described, the practice of prolonged stenting continues to diminish. We describe 21 pediatric patients with moderate-to-severe subglottic or tracheal stenosis who had laryngotracheal reconstructions with anterior rib cartilage grafts without stenting or intubation. The patients were between 6 months and 7 years of age at the time of surgery. All patients were extubated in the operating room after the procedure was terminated. One patient required reintubation in the intensive care unit for 48 hours after surgery, and another patient required a tracheotomy. Wound infection occurred in one patient. Most patients were discharged to their homes 3 to 5 days after surgery. We report the indications, technique, results, and complications of laryngotracheal reconstruction using a rib graft without ...

Obstruction of the upper airway caused by laryngotracheal stenosis (LTS) often results in severe morbidity and even mortality. Treatment of LTS continues to present a challenge and a wide array of surgical techniques have been employed. Despite multiple endoscopic and/or open reconstructive procedures, patients often experience restenosis as a result of the abnormal wound-healing process that initially instigated the airway obstruction. The high rate of stenosis relapse has therefore motivated researchers to find new methods to modulate and control the wound-healing process of the airway. Although other adjuvant treatments such as steroids and antibiotics have been investigated in LTS, much attention in recent years has turned to the use of topical mitomycin-C (MMC). As a topical application, MMC has been shown to inhibit fibroblast proliferation in wound-healing processes. The use of MMC in the treatment of airway stenosis was first reported in 1998 and is now routinely used in the endoscopic ...

Laryngotracheal reconstruction is a surgery performed to widen the airway to improve breathing. Laryngotracheal reconstruction is performed when a portion of the airway, known as the subglottis, or region immediately below the vocal folds is narrowed. This narrowing may be a result of scar, trauma, or be a condition that develops or unknown reasons. If the narrowing is severe enough, or does not respond to other treatments including dilation, a laryngotracheal reconstruction may be necessary.

Partial or complete narrowing of the subglottic area may be congenital or acquired. The problem is rare and challenging, affecting soft tissue and cartilage support.
The pathogenesis of ASGS is related to traumatic injury caused by endotracheal intubation. It is impossible to avoid minor trauma of the subglottis even if patients are intubated carefully. The immediate pathological changes of mucosal oedema, hyperaemia, ulceration, mucosal necrosis, production of granulation tissue with various degrees of fibroblastic response, and re-epithelialisation of ulcerated tissue have been described in a number of studies.3 7 It has recently been suggested that spreading of cells at the edge of the wound surface and migration of epithelial cells are key events in the repair process, and that the actin cytoskeleton in migrating cells is essential.8 EDIN is an exoenzyme from S aureus that ADP-ribosylates the Ras-like small GTP-binding protein, Rho.

Pediatric laryngotracheal stenosis (LTS), a narrowing of the airway in children, is a complex medical condition. While it can be something a child is born with or caused by injury, the condition can result in a life-threatening emergency if untreated.
Diverse internal and external pathologic stimuli can trigger cellular stress response pathways (CSRPs) that are usually counteracted by intrinsic homeostatic machinery, which responds to stress by initiating complex signaling mechanisms to eliminate either the stressor or the damaged cells. There is growing evidence that CSRPs can have context-dependent homeostatic or pathologic functions that may result in tissue fibrosis under persistence of stress. CSRPs can drive intercellular communications through exosomes (trafficking and secretory pathway determinants) secreted in response to stress-induced proteostasis rebalancing. The injured tissue environment upon sensing the stress turns on a precisely orchestrated network of immune responses by regulating cytokine-chemokine production, recruitment of immune cells, and modulating fibrogenic niche and extracellular matrix (ECM) cross-talk during fibrotic pathologies like cardiac fibrosis, liver fibrosis, laryngotracheal stenosis, systemic scleroderma,
To the Editor:. We appreciate the comments by Drs. Garcia-Valladares and Espinoza1 regarding our study on granulomatosis with polyangiitis (Wegeners, GPA) persistently localized to one organ2.. As emphasized by their patients case, subglottic stenosis often evolves and can relapse as a limited process in GPA, in the absence of or with only a few other active systemic extra-respiratory tract vasculitis manifestation(s) and/or progress to fibrotic stenosis. Most of these patients with this potentially rapidly life-threatening manifestation represent a difficult therapeutic challenge3. Because the response of subglottic stenosis to conventional systemic treatments is, at best, partial and, if so, often only transient, local therapy, mainly based on repeated dilations with or without local injections of corticosteroids, represents the cornerstone of its therapeutic management4,5. The places of tracheal surgery, laser deobstruction, and local injections of other drugs, such as mitomycin, are still ...

LMA devices come in sizes that will fit virtually any pediatric patient. LMA use, especially in pediatric patients, requires training and frequent practice. When providers are well trained, successful first attempt placement can be as high as 94 percemt6.. There are some special considerations with pediatric LMA use. Firstly, pediatric anatomy can sometimes cause the LMA to catch on the epiglottis or vallecula, effectively occluding the airway. In cases involving significant obstruction as seen in croup or refractory asthma, it will not be possible to obtain a seal owing to the very high airway pressures6.. The Combitube™, used by some EMS services as a rescue device, is only available in sizes down to patients taller than 48 and has been associated with more complications than the LMA including esophageal rupture, pyriform sinus perforation, tongue engorgement and mucosal ischemia8.. Several manufacturers make laryngotracheal airways (for example, the King LT-D™), which come in smaller ...

Question 27 from the first paper of 2016 was mainly about the handling of a paediatric airway, but the first half was also about stridor in children, and its causes. When you search for this as a string, usually four or five articles surface from the bubbling ooze of medical literature, of which for some reason three are usually different copies of Florence Cavanaghs 1965 opus for the Proceedings of the Royal Society of Medicine. Thats not a good reference. Of the current lietarture, the best single resource is probably a free copy of the 2016 article by Pfleger and Eber, if you can get a hold of it by nefarious means. An alternative might be the UpToDate article on this topic. Both of these recent resources were pillaged for information and used to construct the summary which follows.
Well that was a bit of a gap. A quick post on the return about something we all know we know but could do with unknowing - simple stuff on the paediatric airway. I dont think my computer embeds a knowledge of anything. Or my phone. Everything is up for updating. I know because all too…

Anthony has never had a very good airway. When he first joined our family in 2000, I remember listening to him snore while sleeping and thinking he may need a tracheostomy some day. But we managed his airway with positioning, occasional oral suctioning and Anthonys nice strong cough. Even though he did sometimes have trouble handling his own saliva, he was always able to clear his lungs with a cough. In 2006, he had a spinal fusion (lots of posts about this surgery if you search some of the earliest posts on this blog). The fusion was for his scoliosis and the surgery was very successful. His orthopedic surgeon was very happy with his nice straight spine. Problem is that the surgery and/or straightening seemed to make his gastric reflux worse. Maybe his old fundoplication unwrapped or just having a straighter esophagus was enough to bring stomach content up to the back of his throat. Again, his strong cough helped, but over time, it got harder and harder for him to tolerate his G-tube feedings. ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Jet pulse characteristics for high-frequency jet ventilation in dogs. AU - Calkins, J. M.. AU - Waterson, C. K.. AU - Hameroff, S. R.. AU - Kanel, J.. PY - 1982/1/1. Y1 - 1982/1/1. N2 - From data in dogs it is concluded that an appropriate I/E ratio (,0.25), peak airway pressures near 10 cm H2O, and end-expiratory pressures of ,3 cm H2O are required for effective ventilation. General HFJV principles that may be extrapolated to humans suggest the necessity for maintaining a minimum lung volume and compliance for efficient gas exchange, possibly due to recruitment of distal airways, increased flow, and enhanced gas mixing. As expiratory resistance may be more significant in humans, higher I/E values may be clinically ineffective..

However, Eckenhoffs article was in turn based on descriptions made half a century before by Bayeux, who reported the findings from anatomic dissections in 15 bodies of children between 4 months and 14 years of age, together with their corresponding plaster models. In that article, Eckenhoff describes the cricoid cartilage as a rigid structure that cannot be distended in order to pass the ETT, and describes how its parts come together to form a ring around the larynx. Eckenhoff actually clearly states the danger of extrapolating such cadaver findings to live human beings. Unfortunately a number of anesthesiology textbooks picked up on these anatomical descriptions of the pediatric airway since then ...
OBJECTIVE: To compare the effectiveness of high-frequency jet ventilation via Wei jet nasal airway and controlled ventilation with improved laryngeal mask airway during bronchial thermoplasty. METHODS: Twenty-eight patients undergoing bronchial thermoplasty were equally divided into two groups: group A (high-frequency jet ventilation through Wei jet nasal airway) and group B (controlled ventilation with improved laryngeal mask airway). Pulse oxygenation,heart rate,and mean arterial blood pressure were recorded after entering the operating room (T0), 1 minute after administration/induction (T1), bronchoscope inserting (T2), 15 minutes (T3)/30 minutes (T4)/45 minutes (T5) after ventilation,at the end of the operation (T6), and at the recovery of patients consciousness (T7 ...

This study is a prospective, single arm, observational study of patients at Red Cross War Memorial Childrens Hospital receiving treatment for laryngotracheal stenosis using a modified tracheal dilatation balloon. The tracheal balloon dilatation procedure is clinically well-established and is standard practice in the study institution. In this study, a modified, improved tracheal balloon will be used to treat patients. Data to be collected during the procedure include measurement of the stenotic segment prior to and after dilatation, using both the modified Myer-Cotton grading system and sizing the stenosis using endotracheal tubes diameter, documenting the site of the stenosis (distance from vocal cords), periprocedural oxygen saturation nadir (using plethysmography) and heart rate. All other procedures will be as per routine care. Each procedure will be monitored by a senior anaesthetist who is not a member of the research team. Their role will be to ensure the safety of the patient.. The ...
MODEL RELEASED. Child with naso-gastric tube using sign language. Young girl aged 2 1/2 years with a permanent tracheostomy vent and a naso-gastric feeding tube, giving the sign for the letter a. The child has a congenital subglottic stenosis (SGS) grade 3, a narrowing of the subglottic airway where it passes through the ring-shaped cricoid cartilage. Grade 3 indicates the blockage is between 50% and 99%. A tracheostomy tube has been inserted below the cricoid to allow normal breathing. However this is below the larynx so the child is unable to talk normally and uses sign language to communicate. The child is unable to swallow so must be fed by tube. Treatment of SGS is normally by surgery, either by splitting the cricoid and grafting inserts of cartilage or by resection of the trachea. Congenital SGS is realtively rare, but is the third most common congenital airway problem. - Stock Image C003/8855

The concentration of dissolved oxygen is an important indicator of water quality because aquatic life lives on the dissolved oxygen in the water. A free overfall jet from a weir plunging into downstream water causes entrainment of the air bubbles if the free overfall jet velocity exceeds a certain critical value and hence aeration occurs. This paper investigates the free overfall jets from triangular sharp-crested weirs and their effect on the air entrainment rate and the aeration efficiency. The artificial neural network models, multi nonlinear and linear regression equations were obtained for the triangular sharp-crested weirs relating the air entrainment rate and the aeration efficiency to drop height, discharge, and angle in triangular sharp-crested weir. There were good agreements between the measured values and the values obtained using the artificial neural network and multi nonlinear regression models ...

One of the first decisions EMS providers make when assessing a pediatric patient is whether to manage the patients medical needs in the field or initiate rapid transport to allow for additional management in the emergency department. Certainly patients with severe conditions such as respiratory failure will require immediate field management to ensure adequate oxygenation and ventilation en route to the hospital. The question of whether to intubate a patient in the field versus providing bag-mask ventilation is a complex one and requires knowledge of what intervention is most effective, has the least complications, and which procedure promises a better outcome. The decision about airway management of pediatric patients in the field versus the emergency department will always require careful consideration and is likely to change with new research and collective experience. ...

Tubeless high-frequency jet ventilation increases diagnostic and therapeutic options during endoscopic surgery of the respiratory tract by providing sufficient ventilation without restricting the surgical field [18,19,20]. TIVA is preferred for procedures done under jet ventilation (18] but is associated with a higher incidence of awareness [21]. Accordingly electrophysiologic monitoring of the depth of anesthesia appears appropriate. But monitoring makes sense only if the recorded data are plausible and unaffected by the ventilation technique used, especially as increases and decreases of BIS are not always signs of inadequate anesthesia, and because BIS does not accurately indicate the depth of anesthesia in all patients (22,23,24].. The A 2000 Bispectral IndexTM (BISTM) monitoring system we used in this study is the successor of the Aspect A 1000 (Aspect Medical Systems, Natick, MA, USA). Additional features of the Aspect A 2000 are bar readings of the EMG and signal quality, which help to ...
Airway surgeons describe partial cricotracheal resection. Partial cricotracheal resection is for patients who have a short section of scarring at the level of the cricoid and the tracheal segment immediately below it.
Fly ash from pulverized coal combustion contains residual carbon that can adsorb the air-entraining admixtures (AEAs) added to control the air entrainment in concrete. This is a problem that has increased by the implementation of low-NOx combustion technologies. In this work, pulverized fuel has been combusted in an entrained flow reactor to test the impact of changes in operating conditions and fuel type on the AEA adsorption of ash and NOx formation. Increased oxidizing conditions, obtained by improved fuel-air mixing or higher excess air, decreased the AEA requirements of the produced ash by up to a factor of 25. This was due to a lower carbon content in the ash and a lower specific AEA adsorptivity of the carbon. The latter was suggested to be caused by changes in the adsorption properties of the unburned char and a decreased formation of soot, which was found to have a large AEA adsorption capacity based on measurements on a carbon black. The NOx formation increased by up to three times ...
This study examines experimentally and for the first time the effect of reduced air pressure on dynamic wetting. The purpose is to assess the role of air viscosity on dynamic wetting failure which hitherto has been speculated on but not measured. In this paper we used dip coating as the model experimental flow and report data on air entrainment velocity Vae we measured with a series of silicone oils in a range of viscosities in a vacuum chamber where the pressure can be reduced from atmospheric down to a few mbar when the mean molecular free path of air is large and air ceases to have a viscosity. To complement earlier work, we carried out the experiments with a range of substrates of varying roughness. The substrates were chosen so that for each one, their two sides differ in roughness. This enables simultaneous comparative observation of their wetting performance and reduces the experimental error in assessing the role of roughness. The data presented here capture the effects of viscosity, ...
The Montgomery® Laryngeal Keel, with its unique umbrella shape, has proven useful in the repair of anterior subglottic stenosis (web), with or without vocal cord paralysis. Use of the keel can be made following repair of stenosis or following removal of the Montgomery® Laryngeal Stent to aid in formation of a sharp anterior commissure.. The keel also has application following hemilaryngectomy to prevent stenosis. The intralaryngeal extension of the keel is thinner than the umbrella of the extralaryngeal portion. The extralaryngeal portion, when secured to thyroid laminae with a figure-of-eight suture, covers the thyrotomy repair with its umbrella. Tightly secured, the keel prevents stenosis and the migration of granulation tissue into the larynx.. The keel is made of soft implant grade silicone (clear or radiopaque) and is available in three sizes. ...
Glottic stenosis is narrowing of the larynx at the level of the glottis (ie, vocal cords). It is caused by webbing, fibrosis, or scarring and most often involves the posterior glottis.
Purpose Stenting has been developed to deal with airway stenosis and is applicable in patients with post-intubation tracheal stenosis (PITS) in whom surgery would not be indicated. Multivariate analysis revealed that this stent could be successfully removed more frequently in those who do not have cardiovascular disease [odds ratio (OR)=12.195; p=0.036] and the intervention was performed within 6 months after intubation (OR=13.029; p=0.031). Conclusion Among those patients undergoing silicone stenting due to PITS, the stent could be successfully removed when patients do not have cardiovascular disease and stented within 6 months after intubation. Keywords: Intervention, post-intubation tracheal stenosis, prognosis, rigid bronchoscopy, silicone stent INTRODUCTION Tracheal stenosis (narrowing of the trachea) is usually a life-threatening, emergent disease with an increasing frequency.1,2 One of the most common etiologies of benign tracheal stenosis is post-procedural tracheal stenosis, such as ...

VAP is clinically important because of its association with increased morbidity, mortality, and healthcare costs.1 Early VAP is believed to result from aspiration of bacteria from the oropharynx, and therefore strategies that reduce oropharyngeal aspiration are of interest.2. Dezfulian et al present a rigorous meta-analysis of 5 RCTs outlining the benefits of SSD. Important limitations of this meta-analysis are that only 1 trial had blinded outcome assessment, VAP was inconsistently defined, and all 5 trials used a different method for applying suction. Despite these limitations, all trials showed a statistically significant increase in time to development of pneumonia with SSD.. These findings generate additional questions for future research. Firstly, why did SSD have no effect on mortality? Despite the effectiveness of SSD in reducing early onset of VAP, further research is needed to identify strategies to reduce late onset VAP. Secondly, why did reduced ICU stay not affect overall hospital ...
