Adults in intensive care units




Patients who are put on mechanically-assisted breathing apparatus are susceptible to lung infections. In 2010, doctors in the US conducted a clinical study to see if GG probiotic could protect adult patients who were mechanically ventilated in the Intensive Care Unit from developing lung infections.

They found that taking GG probiotic halved the number of cases of pneumonia in this group of very ill patients.
