BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE Automatic tube compensation has been designed as a new ventilatory mode to compensate for the non-linear resistance of the endotracheal tube. The study investigated the effects of automatic tube compensation compared with breathing through a T-piece or pressure support during a trial of spontaneous breathing used for weaning patients from mechanical ventilation of the lungs. METHODS Twelve patients were studied who were ready for weaning after prolonged mechanical… CONTINUE READING
