However, in cases of severe periodontal diseases or evidence of necrotizing pneumonia or lung pneumonie d aspiration in computed tomography, the use of antibiotics with anaerobic coverage can be considered [ 6083 ].


The primary purposes of prevention, for patients with risk factors of aspiration, are to reduce the frequency and amount of aspiration and to minimize the colonization of pathogenic organisms. General anesthesia is a key risk factor of gastric aspiration, and an opportunity for proactive management and prevention.

Fasting prior pneumonie d aspiration the surgery or procedure is one of the key preventive measures to avoid gastric aspiration during general anesthesia. However, for clear liquids, fasting for pneumonie d aspiration than 2 h has not shown additional benefits in lowering the risk [ 8485 ].

Based on these facts, ASA recommends 2-h fasting for clear liquids for patients of all age groups. The role of fasting when performing sedation for procedures in the emergency department ED is controversial.

This is because the risk of aspiration during sedation for procedures in ED pneumonie d aspiration thought to be very low, and ED patients are typically healthy without preparation for fasting prior to the admission [ 86 ].

Nevertheless, when performing sedation for the procedure, preventive measures, such as adjusting the sedation depth, identifying high risk patients, and monitoring during the procedure, must be considered.

The most pneumonie d aspiration intervention to prevent aspiration in inpatients and ICU patients is to position the patients in a semi-recumbent position.

Using radioactively labeled gastric contents, pneumonie d aspiration has been found that positioning patients under mechanical ventilation into a semi-recumbent position results in a reduced rate of reflux, pneumonie d aspiration mitigating the risk of aspiration [ 8788 ].

Indeed, the frequency of aspiration was higher in patients in supine position, while the frequency was dependent on the duration of the supine position. In a clinical study comparing the occurrence rate of nosocomial pneumonia in patients under mechanical ventilation, it has been observed that the patient group in semi-recumbent position had significantly lower occurrence rate compared with the patient group in supine position.

Furthermore, the difference was more definite in patients receiving enteral feeding [ 89 ]. Currently, the semi-recumbent position is a standard practice to prevent aspiration and associated complications.

Dietary intervention has been attempted in patients with dysphasia. The occurrence rate of aspiration pneumonia has been reported to be lower in pseudobulbar dysphagia patients that received mechanical diet with thickened liquids pneumonie d aspiration with the patients that received pureed diet with thin liquids [ 90 ].

However, the occurrence rate of pneumonia was comparable among post-stroke patient groups who were divided into three randomized groups depending on the degree of dietary intervention by a dysphagia therapist [ 91 ].

Given that enteric tube feeding increases the pneumonie d aspiration of aspiration, several attempts have been made to compare different forms of tube feeding to minimize the risk.


The most relevant comparison was between gastric and post-pyloric feeding. When considering gastric dysmotility due to a critical illness, gastroparesis, or medication, the post-pyloric feed pneumonie d aspiration thought to be a superior option pneumonie d aspiration 92 ]. However, two randomized prospective clinical studies have reported no difference in the aspiration rates between the two feeding types [ 9394 ].

In terms of efficiency to reach the nutritional goal, post-pyloric feed pneumonie d aspiration been considered superior to gastric feeding [ 9596 ]. Previous randomized clinical trials have reported no difference in pneumonia complication rate between the nasogastric tube feed and the percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy tube feed [ 9798 ].
