Subglottic Secretions Surveillance to Predict Bacterial Pathogens Involved in Ventilator-associated Pneumonia


Brief description of study

Many studies provide evidence for the benefit of lower respiratory tract surveillance, mostly by culture of endotracheal secretions, to predict bacterial pathogens (especially multi-drugs resistant pathogens) involved in VAP. The DEMETER study (NCT02515617) assessing the medico-economical impact of the subglottic secretions drainage (SSD) provides the opportunity to evaluate the accuracy of the subglottic secretions culture surveillance to predict pathogens involved in VAP (in comparison with the concomitant endotracheal secretions surveillance). These subglottic and tracheal secretions culture surveillance will be masked to the investigators of the DEMETER Study.

This ancillary study will be performed in 14 centers participating to the DEMETER study

Clinical Study Identifier: NCT02585180
