Abstract

BACKGROUND The selective digestive decontamination (SDD) component antibiotics have activity against Pseudomonas aeruginosa, an important ventilator-associated pneumonia (VAP) isolate. Evaluating the relationship between the anti-pseudomonal activity of SDD towards its VAP prevention effect is complicated by postulated indirect effects of SDD mediated in… (More)
