Join presenter Jean Chastre (Paris, France) on Monday 2nd October from 16:00 -17:00 CET for this interactive webinar on an important topic for all intensive care professionals…
Ventilator-associated pneumonia is one of the most common infections occurring in mechanically ventilated patients and is frequently caused by antibiotic-resistant bacteria. Persistently high mortalities for pneumonia in the intensive care unit argue for a continued reassessment of our current modalities of diagnosis and therapy, as well as definition of better protocols. More active antibacterial agents are still needed, especially for problematic pathogens that are now emerging in many countries worldwide, such as multidrug-resistant nonfermenting gram-negative bacilli and ESBL-producing Enterobacteriaceae (including carbapenemase-producing Gram-negative bacilli), as well as a better use of already available antimicrobial agents based on optimised PK/PD parameters.
This webinar will review important aspects of this dreadful disease and provide guidance on the most effective diagnostic, treatments and management strategies for adult patients with HAP and VAP.
This webinar also serves an important pre-course session for participants interested in attending the Managing Pneumonia in the ICU – State of the Art course on November 21-22. For more details, and to register visit the course webpage!
This webinar is OPEN FOR ALL REGISTRANTS!
