IMPORTANCE Patients requiring prolonged mechanical ventilation (>21 days) are commonly weaned at long-term acute care hospitals (LTACHs). The most effective method of weaning such patients has not been investigated. OBJECTIVE To compare weaning duration with pressure support vs unassisted breathing through a tracheostomy collar in patients transferred to an LTACH for weaning from prolonged ventilation. DESIGN, SETTING, AND PARTICIPANTS Between 2000 and 2010, a randomized study was conducted… CONTINUE READING
