It is common practice to convert patients with acute respiratory insufficiency (ARI) from controlled mechanical ventilation to some form of assisted spontaneous breathing as early as possible. A widely used mode of assisted spontaneous breathing is patient-triggered inspiratory pressure support (IPS). We investigated 11 patients with ARI during weaning from mechanical ventilation using IPS and found that in 9 of these patients, desynchronization between patient and ventilator occurred, ie, that… CONTINUE READING
