Ventilator-Associated Events and Outcome Measures Module
This module has tools and slide sets to help units accomplish three goals:
- Monitor ventilator-associated events and outcome measures.
- Reduce ventilator-associated events (VAE).
- Make evidence-based determinations about the care of ventilated patients.
Data Measures Guide (PDF, 945 KB)
The Data Measures Guide provides data definitions and equations to help you use your collected data to determine your unit’s progress in reducing VAE rates, improving intervention compliance, and track objective outcomes such as mortality and duration of mechanical ventilation.
