Abstract

Ventilator-associated pneumonia (VAP) is a kind of pneumonia that arises within 48–72 hours or later after the insertion of a breathing tube into the windpipe. The fundamental idea of preventing ventilator-associated pneumonia is to minimize the length of time a patient is on mechanical ventilation and to extubate them as early as possible. Adhering to the bundle of care can influence the risk of VAP. Researchers conducted several studies between 2020 and 2023 to assess the effectiveness of a ventilation care bundle in preventing ventilator-associated pneumonia. Each study varied in terms of the specific version of the care bundle used, compliance rates, sample size, and duration of the research. The conclusion drawn on the effectiveness in question may be impacted by these disparities. Proper execution of an effective ventilator care package can decrease the occurrence of ventilator-associated pneumonia in patients who are critically ill. Employing a variety of tactics backed by long-term teaching initiatives is crucial to ensure adherence to the care bundle.
