What is VAP? A breakdown of the fatal infection

Ventilator Associated Pneumonia or VAP is a serious healthcare condition when people are placed on mechanical ventilation. VAP prevention is an essential piece of our business proposition, and this is the initial market we are attempting to address.

VAP stands for Ventilator-Associated Pneumonia.

It’s a universal ICU problem which threatens the life of millions around the world. This type of pneumonia is a fatal infection in the ICU. Nurses find it difficult to deliver oral hygiene, especially when the patient is on a ventilator. VAP creates a $6.5 billion annual healthcare burden, and this is shifted to medical centers, and the costs are approximately $40,000 per VAP case.
