OBJECTIVE To determine the threshold value of rapid-shallow-breathing index (RSBI) and its increased percentage (Delta RSBI) as predictors for successful weaning in spontaneous breathing trial (SBT) with pressure support ventilation (PSV) and T-piece. METHODS In 2007, there were 208 patients on ventilators with oral intubation. They were divided into two groups: the PSV group (93 patients) and the T-piece group (115 patients). The duration of SBT was 30 minutes. Weaning indexes [mouth… CONTINUE READING
