原始语种摘要: Background: Ventilator associated pneumonia (VAP) is the most frequent intensive care unit acquired infection and is one of the leading causes of morbidity and mortality in ICUs. Objectives: To isolate and identify the causative organisms of ventilator associated pneumonia with their antibiotic susceptibility patterns in ICU patients of tertiary care hospital in North Karnataka. Methods: A prospective cohort study was conducted over one year period in ICUs of a tertiary care hospital in North Karnataka. ICU patients who were intubated and on mechanical ventilation for more than 48 hours, in whom VAP was clinically suspected {Clinical Pulmonary Infection Score (CPIS) > 6} were included in this study. Endotracheal aspirates and endotracheal tube tips after extubation were collected as...
