Reviewof “Bundle to prevent ventilator-associated Pneumonia: A collectiveconstruction” and “Efficacy of ventilator-associated pneumoniacare bundle for prevention of ventilator-associated pneumonia in thesurgical intensive care units of a medical center”

“Bundleto prevent ventilator-associated Pneumonia: A collectiveconstruction” is research conducted to study the use of VAP bundlein the treatment of pneumonia. It used a Qualitative Convergent-CareResearch (CCR) design. A sample size of 25 and 14 professionals wasused. The participants were interviewed through the use of thesemi-structured individual interview. The data analysis was doneusing Field and Morse’s framework. This was done in four phases:re-contextualization, theorization, synthesis, and apprehension(Guterres da Silva, Pereira do Nascimento &amp Kuerten de Sallesm,2012).

Onthe other hand, “Efficacy of ventilator-associated pneumonia carebundle for prevention of ventilator-associated pneumonia in thesurgical intensive care units of a medical center” is researchconducted on the role of ventilator-associated pneumonia care bundleon the prevention of ventilator-associated pneumonia. The researchapplied the retrospective study design to help in the evaluation of asample of 28,454 patients from the National Taiwan UniversityHospital ICU. Data analysis was done using statistical methods (Lim,Kuo, Sheng, Chang, Hong, Sun, Chen &amp Chang, 2015).

Thesestudies were important because they generated useful information thatcan be relied upon to understand the concepts under study. Thefindings of the studies are important because they provideresearch-based evidence on the effectiveness of the use of VAP bundleand ventilator in the provision of health care services. The findingsfrom these studies can be important in my practice. I can apply thesefindings to improving the quality of service delivery to my patients.At the same time, I will use these findings in promoting the use ofmultidisciplinary approach in my practice. Meaning, when having atask to perform, I will have to collaborate with my colleagues andother specialists especially when dealing with complex cases.
