VAPaWAY

Don't ask me how but I ran across this european website about Ventilation Acquired Pneumonia (VAP) called VAPaWAY.

Here is their mission objective:

The VAPAWAY website is dedicated to bringing together European physicians, nurses and other related professionals to discuss and agree on how to develop and disseminate a European consensus on VAP prevention.

Definitly respiratory related. Currently there are 7 different articles in about VAP which all look interesting. No I haven't read them all, scanned a couple, but they look promising. Also I noticed a nice set of links on the site that all real with medical information that I have never seen before.

All in all it deals with a type of pneumonia which we all know us RT's love to deal with. I could be a promising site, it looks professional and could become something worth checking out periodically in the future.

I know our VAP #s have diminished significantly since we started following the recommendations of the Keystone Committee. In fact, they are almost nonexistent.

That's how we ended up getting our Ventilator Protocol, via Keystone recommendation.

I agree with you I don't come across many VAP issues but I'm assuming they are not fully eradicated.
