Brief Summary:
The purpose of the study is to determine whether automated cuff pressure control results in a reduction in the proportion of patients developing ventilator associated respiratory infections during their stay in intensive care.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Mechanical Ventilation Complication Tracheal Intubation Morbidity Ventilator-Associated Pneumonia Hospital Acquired Infection Device: Tracoe cuff pressure controller Not Applicable

Detailed Description:

The proposed study is a randomized controlled trial of tracheal cuff pressure control using continuous control via an automated electronic device as compared with intermittent pressure control for the prevention of ventilator associated respiratory infection in ICU.

The study will be conducted at multiple sites in Vietnam. Recruitment will be for 18 months at all centers. Patients experiencing any hospital acquired infection whilst at risk of Ventilator Associated Respiratory Infections will be evaluated in using a standardised investigation protocol to identify cases of VARI and other hospital acquired infections (HAI)s. Assessment of VARI will be based on published criteria and carried out by an endpoint review committee independent of patient care and blinded to the allocation of the patient. Antibiotic use data and duration of stay will be important secondary outcome measures.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Continuous Pressure Control (CPC)
Continuous endotracheal cuff pressure control using Tracoe cuff pressure controller during their intubated stay on ICU.
Device: Tracoe cuff pressure controller
Participant will be attached to the cuff pressure controller as soon as possible after enrolment. They will remain attached during their intubated stay. If reintubated during same admission they will continue in the intervention arm. If readmitted to ICU they will be managed according to standard care.

No Intervention: Standard Care
Intermittent cuff pressure control through manual measurement performed 3 times per day (standard care)



Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Ventilator Associated Respiratory Infection (VARI) - defined as Ventilator Associated Pneumonia (VAP) or Ventilator Associated Tracheobronchitis (VAT) [ Time Frame: From randomisation to ICU discharge/death/transfer or 90 days ]

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Microbiologically confirmed VARI defined as above plus bacterial growth of ≥105 cfu/ml (ETA) or equivalent semi-quantitative for both VAP and VAT [ Time Frame: From randomisation to ICU discharge/death/transfer or 90 days ]
  2. Clinical and microbiologically confirmed VAP (see above for definitions) [ Time Frame: From randomisation to ICU discharge/death/transfer or 90 days ]
  3. Intubated days receiving antibiotics [ Time Frame: From randomisation to ICU discharge/death/transfer or 90 days ]
  4. Incidence of hospital acquired infection [ Time Frame: From randomisation to extubation/death/transfer/discharge/ from ICU or 90 days ]
  5. Total number of days ventilated/in ICU [ Time Frame: From randomisation to ICU discharge, death, transfer or 90 days ]
  6. Cost of ICU stay [ Time Frame: From ICU admission to ICU discharge, death, transfer or 90 days ]
  7. Cost of antibiotics in ICU stay [ Time Frame: From ICU admission to ICU discharge, death, transfer or 90 days ]
  8. Cost of hospital stay [ Time Frame: From hospital admission to hospital discharge or 90 days ]
  9. 28 day mortality [ Time Frame: From randomisation to 28 days after randomisation ]
  10. 90 day mortality [ Time Frame: From randomisation to 90 days after randomisation ]
  11. ICU mortality [ Time Frame: From randomisation to discharge from ICU or death/palliative discharge from it or 90 days ]
  12. Hospital mortality [ Time Frame: From randomisation to discharge from ICU or death/palliative discharge from it or 90 days ]

Other Outcome Measures:
  1. Grade 3 &4 adverse events relating to endotracheal cuff pressure [ Time Frame: From randomisation to 90 days ]
