ABSTRACT

Ventilator-Associated Pneumonia (VAP) is the most important infection complication occurring in the critically ill patients, increasing intensive care unit length of stay and mortality. In the last years, the scientific information has improved our understanding of the pathogenesis and treatment of VAP. Despite this information misconception continue in the diagnosis and management of those patients. In the Mexican Consensus of Diagnosis and Management of Pneumonia attended by 25 Mexican researchers, a subgroup constituted by 6 intensivist, made a review of the literature and developed a document related to definition, epidemiology, diagnosis and treatment of VAP. Consensus was focused the importance of prophylaxis and local epidemiology surveillance programs.


Key words: Ventilator-Associated Pneumonia, Mexican Consensus of Diagnosis and Management of Pneumonia, critically ill complication, pneumonia.
