This is a pre-post implementation cohort study. This is a data driven quality improvement project which aims to improve the care of mechanically ventilated patients through the implementation of a bundle of evidence based practices, with a goal of reducing ventilator associated events and mortality.


NASAM is a national collaborative quality improvement project in Saudi Arabia which aims to:

  1. Reduce the rate of ventilator-associated events
  2. Improve the compliance with NASAM bundle elements
  3. Reduce the mortality of mechanically ventilated patients

The plan of this quality improvement project is to extend the implementation to a total of 100 ICUs in collaboration with multiple health systems across the country. A significant component of this project includes measuring the safety culture of ICUs.
