Abstract

We analyzed a set of clinical parameters using Cox proportional hazard regressions to yield significant factors associated with the development of ventilator-associated events. In our study, intubation site, certain comorbidities, morphine, prednisone, and nutrition emerged as factors. Additionally, we presented potential mechanisms that require further research to validate.
