Ove​​rview​

Ventilator-associated pneumonia (VAP) is a serious and common complication for patients requiring multiple days of respiratory support. ECRI has reviewed the clinical evidence for a technology that may help reduce VAP incidence—endotracheal tubes fitted with subglottic secretion drainage ports—and is currently testing several devices in the lab. Watch a recording of our October 2022 webcast, which covered current strategies to reduce VAP, the evidence su​pporting use of subglottic drainage to prevent VAP, and ECRI's hands-on lab testing of subglottic drainage technology. ​
