A higher percentage of patients with liberal oxygen therapy demonstrated ventilator-associated pneumonia (VAP) and septicemia. Studies have suggested an association with hyperoxemia and VAP. (Jaffal K, Six S, Zerimech F, Nseir S. Relationship between hyperoxemia and ventilator associated pneumonia. Ann Transl Med. 2017;5(22):453. doi:10.21037/atm.2017.10.15) Would a study analyzing alternating liberal and conservative oxygen therapies and its role in reduction of VAP and all-cause mortality be beneficial?
