In our study we have included the antimicrobial susceptibility of MICU and STICU to observe the trend of the pathogens.
In 2011 the VAP incidence was 7.38 in CTVS, 7.55 in STICU which are the surgical intensive care units and in 2012 the VAP incidence was 2.64 in the CTVS, 2.41in STICU which is comparable favourably, with a study which shows 5.2 VAP cases/1000 ventilator days in surgical ICUs (10).
