Compliance With an Antibiotic Guideline for Suspected Ventilator-Associated Infection: The Ventilator-Associated INfection (VAIN2) Study*

Strategies to overcome clinician perceptions of respiratory cultures and other barriers will be vital for improving guideline adherence and antibiotic use in suspected ventilator-associated infection in future studies.
