Objective criteria for ending mechanical ventilation have not been established for infants and children. A recent study in adult patients developed two new indexes, the Rapid Shallow Breathing Index (RSB) and the CROP Index for predicting success or failure of extubation. We decided to evaluate the applicability of these indices to intubated, mechanically ventilated pediatric patients. For this evaluation the indices were adapted to the physiology of infants and children. A pneumotachograph was… CONTINUE READING
