Ventilator-associated pneumonia (VAP) is one of the leading nosocomial infections in intensive care units (ICUs), causing high mortality and increased health care costs. It is known that early diagnosis and treatment reduces mortality and morbidity. This app is intended to help medical practitioner in early diagnosis of ventilator-associated pneumonia (VAP) by using the Clinical Pulmonary Infection Score (CPIS) score. CPIS was developed in 1991 and included 7 clinical parameters for ventilator-associated pneumonia (VAP) diagnosis. In this scoring system, the clinic is evaluated with radiological and endotracheal aspirate (ETA) culture results. The diagnosis of ventilator-associated pneumonia (VAP) was made using body temperature, leucocyte count and morphology, tracheal secretion amount and character, PaO2 / FiO2 ratio, presence of pulmonary infiltration and its progression and microbiological culture results. Scores ≥ 7 may indicate higher likelihood of ventilator-associated pneumonia (VAP) and need for bronchoalveolar lavage (BAL) or mini-BAL. 

All calculations must be re-checked and should not be used alone to guide patient care, nor should they substitute for clinical judgment. Calculations in this app might be different with your local practice. Consult to expert doctor whenever necessary.
