Table 1 Correlation between ventilator-associated events and ventilator-associated lower respiratory tract infections

From: Accuracy of ventilator-associated events for the diagnosis of ventilator-associated lower respiratory tract infections

 VAC, n = 262IVAC, n = 134pVAP, n = 65

  1. Data are numbers (%)
  2. The correlation between ventilator-associated events and VAT could not be calculated because of the small number of patients with VAC and VAT (n = 6)
  3. IVAC, infection-related ventilator-associated condition; p, probable; VAC, ventilator-associated condition; VAP, ventilator-associated pneumonia; VAT, ventilator-associated tracheobronchitis
