Effects of Isolated Rooms on the Prevalence of Hospital Acquired Pneumonia in a Respiratory ICU
Epidemiologic Study of Hospital Acquired Pneumonia in a Respiratory ICU

This study will carry out in the ICU. Objectives of the study are to determine the frequency of HAP and the effect of isolated rooms on the frequency of pneumonia in the ICU.

In the present study, it was aimed to determine the incidence, causative agents, antimicrobial resistance, and risk factors for lower respiratory tract infections in patients followed in the ICU for the last 4 years. The effect of reconfiguration from a ward-type ICU consisting one large room to an ICU with isolated rooms with two beds on the incidence of HAP was also determined.
