With an estimated cost of over $14,000 per ventilator-associated event and nearly $50,000 per incident of ventilator-associated pneumonia, the need to reduce and prevent VAEs and VAP in the ICU is critical. A panel of experts from critical care and respiratory medicine will present effective strategies to reduce VAE/VAP in this webinar hosted by RT Magazine.
- Current research regarding infection prevention strategies to decrease the incidence of VAE/VAP.
- The financial impact of VAEs and ventilator-associated pneumonia; and
- The role of respiratory therapists and critical care specialists in improving their facility’s VAE/VAP rates.
After the discussion, there will follow a 15 minute question and answer session where audience members can ask questions.
