ABSTRACT
The article explains the meaning of the mnemonic CHOOSE NO VAP, which was devised to help critical care nurses recall the interventions that aid in the reduction of ventilator-associated pneumonia. Clinicians should routinely assess and record endotracheal tube cuff pressures. All patients should have the head-of-bed elevated at an angle of 30-45 degrees unless contraindicated.
