Abstract

Diagnosis of ventilator-associated pneumonia in newborns is challenging because of ease of colonisation, non-specific chest radiograph changes and lack of a consensus definition. The aims of this study were to review treatment decisions in neonates with culture-positive endotracheal aspirate and to assess impact on respiratory outcomes using blinded review of radiological studies.
