Advanced understanding of Staphylococcus aureus and Pseudomonas aeruginosa Infections in EuRopE ā€“ Intensive Care Units

ASPIRE-ICU is a prospective, observational, multicenter, epidemiologic cohort study. Nested within routine surveillance among ICU patients in Europe. Aimed at the advanced understanding of Staphylococcus aureus and Pseudomonas aeruginosa infections in Europe (ASPIRE).

Predicting risk of infection during ICU stay

The goal is to estimate the incidence of S. aureus and P. aeruginosa ICU pneumonia, especially ventilator-associated pneumonia (VAP). Another goal is to assess its association with patient-related and contextual factors. For example comorbidities, colonization status, and relevant biomarkers. With this information, a risk prediction model will be developed to quantify the risk of acquiring S. aureus or P. aeruginosa pneumonia during ICU stay.

Study information

ASPIRE-ICU will be conducted at some twenty sites in ten European countries. After providing consent, a group of 2000 eligible patients will be enrolled as subjects. Together they form a study cohort where active sampling and more elaborate data collection will take place. Participants will be actively recruited for participation upon ICU admission. And will be followed for a certain period of time to determine the frequency of infections. Samples that will be collected are bacterial isolates and serum samples for in-depth microbiological and immunological testing.
