Surveillance for Ventilator-associated Events

VAE surveillance is available in plan for adult inpatient locations only. See PNEU/VAP for in-plan surveillance for pediatric locations.  In-plan surveillance for ventilated associated PNEU is no longer available for neonatal patients.

The Ventilator-Associated Event Calculator (must have javascript enabled) operates based upon the currently posted VAE protocol.
