Ventilator-associated Event Calculator
Welcome to the VAE Calculator. This is a web-based tool that is designed to help you learn how the VAE surveillance definition algorithm works and assist you in making VAE determinations. Please note that the VAE Calculator will not ask you to enter any patient identifiers (other than dates of mechanical ventilation, which you can change as you see fit). The VAE Calculator does not store any patient data that you enter, and it will not report any data that you enter or any VAE determinations to NHSN. You will not be able to export data entered into the Calculator, although you can print screen shots if that is helpful to you. If you have questions or suggestions about the Calculator, please feel free to send them to the NHSN mailbox, firstname.lastname@example.org.
