OBJECTIVES The value of visual inspection of ventilator waveforms in detecting patient-ventilator asynchronies in the intensive care unit has never been systematically evaluated. This study aims to assess intensive care unit physicians' ability to identify patient-ventilator asynchronies through ventilator waveforms. DESIGN Prospective observational study. SETTING Intensive care unit of a University Hospital. PATIENTS Twenty-four patients receiving mechanical ventilation for acute… CONTINUE READING
