—In the Concepts in Emergency and Critical Care article entitled "Relationship of Microbiologic Diagnostic Criteria to Morbidity and Mortality in Patients With Ventilator-Associated Pneumonia," published in the February 26, 1997, issue of The Journal (1997;277:655-662), incorrect wording appeared. The fourth sentence of the first full paragraph in the second column of page 659 should read, "In the brush-positive [not brush-negative] group, 20 (34.5%) of the 58 surgical patients died, compared with 11 (61.1%) of the 18 medical patients."
