    Background: Heparin-binding protein is released by neutrophils during inflammation and disrupts the integrity of the alveolar and capillary endothelial barrier implicated in the development of acute lung injury and systemic organ failure. We sought to investigate whether oral administration of...

    Background and Objective. Bronchoalveolar coagulopathy is a characteristic feature of pulmonary inflammation. We compared bronchoalveolar and systemic levels of coagulation in patients who did and patients who did not develop ventilator-associated lung injury (VALI). Methods. Secondary analysis...

    Mechanical ventilation (MV) is frequently employed for the management of critically ill patients with respiratory failure. A major complication of mechanical ventilation (MV) is the development of ventilator-associated pneumonia (VAP), in which Staphylococcus aureus is a prominent pathogen....
