Strategies to prevent VAP Physical strategies * Strict infection control, including hand hygiene with alcohol-based hand disinfectants, gowning and gloving minimises person-to-person transmission of pathogens (3) * Adequate ICU staffing (24) * Minimise endotracheal intubation where possible (3) * Orotracheal route preferred to nasotracheal route (17) * Maintenance of orotracheal cuff pressure >20cm [H.
The guidelines include preferential use of orotracheal tubes over nasotracheal tubes, use of endotracheal tubes with a dorsal lumen to allow drainage, elevating the head of the bed to 30[degrees] or 40[degrees], routinely verifying placement of feeding tubes, and preventing or modulating oropharyngeal colonization with implementation of a comprehensive oral hygiene program (Dodek et al.
