Abstract

Conflicting results have been obtained with regard to the impact of methicillin resistance on outcomes of ventilator-associated pneumonia due to Staphylococcus aureus. The goal of this study was to identify potential confounding factors by comparing patients who had ventilator-associated pneumonia due to methicillin-resistant S. aureus with those who had ventilator-associated pneumonia due to methicillin-susceptible S. aureus.
