Still have questions about the CDC’s new Ventilator-associated Events definitions?
Listen to a recording of Premier’s January 15 Advisor Live® webinar on implementing the CDC’s new ventilator-associated events (VAE) surveillance definitions, featuring Dr. Michael Klompas, a member of CDC’s VAE working group. Dr. Klompas shared his research and discussed diagnostic dilemmas, implications for surveillance, and challenges and tips for success with more than 1,500 participants in the live broadcast.
Download the answers to additional questions from the audience that were answered by both Dr. Klompas and CDC subject matter experts on topics such as weaning trials, interpretation of sputum/BAL sampling, classifying re-intubated patients and more.
This webinar was excellent! I now have all the information I need in a very understandable format. I also appreciated his descriptions of simple ways to monitor patients.
