Respiratory and Pulmonary Infections Prevention and Control

 Respiratory tract infections are the infections which are observed in the respiratory tract ad they are further classified as upper respiratory tract infections and lower respiratory tract infections. Pulmonary infections are mostly observed in lungs which in turn causes acute bronchitis or pneumonia which are often caused by viruses but also can be caused by bacteria or fungal organisms. In COPD patients requiring intubation and invasive MV for hypercapnic respiratory failure, which is exacerbated by pulmonary infection, early extubation followed by noninvasive MV initiated at the start of PIC window may decrease significantly the duration of invasive MV, the risk of VAP and hospital mortality.
