Study Detail

TitleThe dynamics of the pulmonary microbiome during mechanical ventilation in the intensive care unit and the association with occurrence of pneumonia.
Study TypeOther
Abstract Rationale: Mechanical ventilation is assumed to cause a shift in pulmonary microbial communities. Ventilator-associated pneumonia (VAP) is a frequent complication of prolonged mechanical ventilation and has a considerable morbidity and mortality. In this study we hypothesized that microbial diversit .. [more]
