Title : Comparison between conventional endotracheal tubes and polymer-coated tubes in the development of ventilator-associated pneumonia: A systematic review and meta-analysis


This meta-analysis aims to verify the efficacy of conventional endotracheal tubes (PVC) and polymer-coated tubes in combating ventilator-associated pneumonia (VAP) in patients ventilated for more than 48 hours. Thus, after observing the statistical graphs, we found that the coated tubes had a better result than the conventional ones: less bacterial colonization, fewer patients with pneumonia and the number of deaths fell.


Oscar Inacio de Mendonca Bisneto, 26 years old, is a medical student at the Federal University of Campina Grande, Brazil. He has been involved in scientific projects since high school, including the development of the Low-Light Electronic Sensor and a low-cost. Currently, he is a scholarship recipient from CNPQ (National Council for Scientific and Technological Development) and is conducting research on new strategies for endotracheal tubes and hospital objects.
