What do the statistics mean?


Quarterly rates for VAPs are calculated using the following formula:

total # of ICU cases of VAP after 48 hours of mechanical ventilation x1000

total # of ventilator days for ICU patients 18 years and older


The numbers represent the incidents of ventilator associated pneumonia acquired by ICU patients during the reported time period.
