Özet

BACKGROUND: Infections due to carbapenem resistant pathogens have become a major health threat especially for hospitalized patients. Acinetobacter baumanii (AB) and Pseudomonas aeruginosa (PA) are important pathogens causing ventilator-associated pneumonia (VAP) with a trend of high resistance to carbapenems. The aim of this study is to investigate the risk factors for VAP due to carbapenem resistant Acinetobacter baumanii (CRAB) and Pseudomonas aeruginosa (CRPA) in children.
