This study aimed to investigate the correlation of midregional pro-atrial natriuretic peptide (MR-proANP) with severity of septic status in patients with ventilator-associated pneumonia (VAP) and the usefulness of MR-proANP for mortality prediction in VAP. Prospective observational cohort study. University Hospital. Seventy-one patients consecutively admitted to ICU who developed VAP. Patients were followed for 28 days after diagnosis, when they were considered survivors. There were no… CONTINUE READING
