The aim of this study was to develop a clinical prediction model to inform decisions about the timing of extubation in burn patients who have passed a spontaneous breathing trial (SBT). Rapid shallow breathing index, voluntary cough peak flow (CPF) and endotracheal secretions were measured after each patient had passed a SBT and just prior to extubation. We used multiple logistic regression analysis to identify variables that predict extubation outcome. Seventeen patients failed their first… CONTINUE READING
