Abstract

In September 2011, the CDC convened a Ventilator-Associated Pneumonia (VAP) Surveillance Definition Working Group to organize a formal process for leaders and experts of key stakeholder organizations to discuss the challenges of VAP surveillance definitions and to propose new approaches to VAP surveillance in adult patients (Table 1). The charges to the Working Group were to: d Critically review a draft, streamlined VAP surveillance definition developed for use in adult patients; d Suggest modifications to enhance the reliability and credibility of the surveillance definition within the critical care and infection prevention communities; d Propose a final adult surveillance definition algorithm, to be implemented in the CDC's National Healthcare Safety Network (NHSN), taking into.
