Intensive Therapy

The pneumonia associated with the ventilation mechanics is considered important cause of sepse in the patient who presents respiratory insufficience, being able to be sufficiently difficult distinguiz it of other pathological conditions in the patient in ventilation mechanics. Due to high mortality of the pneumonia associated with the ventilation mechanics its diagnosis and treatment must be precocious, what it reduces the severity of the illness and improves its prognostic. (David, 2000 apud RASP; PACE; MEDEIROS; VIRGNIO, the 2007) pneumonia associated with the ventilation mechanics are a frequent infection in the Units of Intensive Therapy, and the suspicion of this it occurs when a patient under respiratory procedure develops new or a gradual one influenced pulmonary associate to the fever and purulenta traqueobrnquica secretion causing increase the period of hospitalization, the indices of morbimortalidade and with significant repercussion in the costs. The team to multidiscipline operating in unit of necessary intensive therapy to be intent for the factors of risk of the pneumonia associated with the ventilation mechanics, being able in such a way, to carry through the therapeutical introduction of adequate that it makes possible resulted better physicians. As David (2001 apud RASP; PACE; MEDEIROS; VIRGNIO, 2007), the pneumonia associated with the ventilation mechanics is consequence of the lack of balance between mechanisms of defense of the individual and the microbiano agent, had to the size of it I inoculate or virulence of the microorganism. The nursing team must have constant concern how much to the factors that increase the settling of bacteria in patients in the ventilation use mechanics, in order to diminish the risks of infections to the user of this. The responsible multiprofessional team for a unit of intensive therapy must watch over for the integrity of its patients, knowing that these if find in an advanced degree of dependence and vulnerability, mainly when this patient if it finds connected to a ventilation system mechanics, becoming them still more susceptveis the respiratory infections as the pneumonia, that can still more aggravate the picture of health of this patient, what it makes it difficult its treatment and it draws out its recovery. .
