Özet

Objective: There are insufficient data in the literature on the comparative evaluation of unchangeable risk factors for ventilator-associated pneumonia (VAP), such as the personal characteristics and/or the existing features of patients on admission to the intensive care unit, together with radiographic findings. In this study, we aimed to investigate mortality risk factors and the possible prognostic role of radiological extent of pneumonia in patients with VAP.
