Many different criteria have been used to predict the outcome of trials [1-4] to wean patients from mechanical ventilation. The ideal test would be one that could predict the outcome rapidly and accurately. A well-publicized study [4] found that rapid, shallow breathing, as shown by a frequency/tidal volume ratio greater than 105, was the most accurate predictor of weaning failure, whereas a value less than 105 was an accurate predictor of success. Most of the commonly used indices, reported to… CONTINUE READING
