The CPIS score is based on sensible elements, and the likelihood of VAP does seem to be somewhat higher when scores are >6; however, the utility and role of the score remain unknown.
We are unaware of validated management algorithms using the CPIS.
CPIS requires aspirate analysis, gram stain and other important laboratory variables.
