Hi guys, what is your approach to Ventilation Associated Pneumonia VAP? What is your definition? Do you routinely send ETT aspirations for culture? And do you use blinded end catheter? Do you treat colonisation? I am asking because it is a source of continuous excuse to keep babies on antibiotic with no clear benefit very interested in hearing your thoughts
Dear All, I would like to ask about your experience with volumen guaranteed mechanical ventillation in case of early onset CLD. We have 24 weeker, who is now 2 weeks old, and having bronchospasms, typical XR signs of CLD, and spontaneous hypoxemic episodes. We try to wean her from MV, but her weight and irregular respiratory activity makes the thing trickier. I was thinking about lowering the PIP, and TV to prevent the further damage, she recieves supportive care for the CLD. I would like to read your experience. Thank you for your answers.
