Abstract Research studies on the prevalence of ventilator-associated-pneumonia indicate that many hospitalized patients in the intensive care unit under mechanical ventilation are likely of a secondary diagnosis of the disease. Research has indicated early diagnosis of VAP for timely intervention as a major problem. The use of quantitative cultures of endotracheal aspirates (QEA) as a diagnosis has proven to be resilient on simplicity and is also cost-effective while at the same time the method has no side effects. Diagnosis of VAP should be based on a combination of clinical, radiological, and microbiological criteria. Adoption and implementation of the modified CPIS is the better option as it is not only cost-effective, but can also be highly specific and sensitive.
