OBJECTIVE Weaning predictors are often incorporated in protocols to predict weaning outcome for patients on mechanical ventilation. The predictors are used as a decision point in protocols to determine whether a patient may advance to a spontaneous breathing trial. The impact of including predictors in a weaning protocol has not been previously studied. We designed a study to determine the effect of including a weaning predictor (frequency-tidal volume ratio, or f/Vt) in a weaning protocol… CONTINUE READING
