ABSTRACT

The aim of this study was to describe the proportion of multidrug-resistant microorganisms (MDROs) involved in ventilator-associated pneumonia (VAP) as the first hospital-acquired infection in 536 adults with restricted risk factors for MDRO-related infection. We found a significant decrease in the percentage of MDROs involved in VAP between 2003 and 2016 and this percentage increased when VAP occurred after day 10.
