Approach to patients who fail initial weaning trials.

PMID:  10900054     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Most patients who are recovering from respiratory failure are successfully liberated from mechanical ventilation easily and soon after the causative disorders are corrected. Roughly one third of patients, however, are not successful on initial attempts at liberation. Clinicians should define and treat the causes of respiratory failure and use validated methods to initiate weaning and manage patients who fail initial spontaneous breathing trials.
