The Contagion® HAP / VAP specialty page provides HAP / VAP-specific clinical news and articles, coverage from conferences and meetings, links to condition-specific resources, and videos and other content.
Grace Lee, MD, MPH, associate medical director, Infection Control, Boston Children’s Hospital, discusses the current VAP bundle and its focus on infectious conditions as well as the need for a VAC bundle that will prevent other causes of VAC for patients on the ventilator.
Influenza A (H3N2) has caused most of the illnesses in this severe flu season, but influenza B is becoming increasingly responsible for more infections as the flu season continues to hit the United States.
Contagion® is a fully integrated news resource covering all areas of infectious disease. Through our website, quarterly journal, email newsletters, social media outlets, and Outbreak Monitor we provide practitioners and specialists with disease-specific information designed to improve patient outcomes and assist with the identification, diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of infectious diseases. Our mission is to assure that the healthcare community and public have the knowledge to make more informed choices and have a positive impact on patient outcomes.
