BACKGROUND: An increasing number of patients require prolonged mechanical ventilation (PMV), which is associated with high morbidity and poor long-term survival, but there are few data regarding the incidence and outcome of PMV patients from a community perspective. METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed the electronic medical records of adult Olmsted county, Minnesota, residents admitted to the intensive care units at the 2 Mayo Clinic Rochester hospitals from January 1, 2003, to December 31… Expand
Outcomes of Tracheostomized Subjects Undergoing Prolonged Mechanical Ventilation in an Intermediate-Care Facility
TLDR
Despite the chance of survival at 1 y and/or weaning from ventilation, the resources needed by subjects with PMV are high, as shown by the number of readmissions and long LOS in the unit and in other hospital units before transfer. Expand
Long‐Term Outcomes and Health Care Utilization after Prolonged Mechanical Ventilation
TLDR
Critically ill patients who undergo mechanical ventilation in an ICU for longer than 21 days have high in‐hospital mortality and greater postdischarge mortality, health care utilization, and health care costs compared with patients who underwent mechanical ventilation for a shorter period of time. Expand
Tracheostomy versus Endotracheal Intubation Prior to Admission to a Respiratory Care Center: A Retrospective Analysis
TLDR
Tracheostomy creation prior to RCC admission was associated with a significantly higher weaning rate and reduced hospital stays, and the provision of assessment of the aforementioned markers may be helpful in the clinical setting to facilitate the optimal management and the accreditation of medical care quality of patients with prolonged mechanical ventilation. Expand
All-Cause Mortality after Tracheostomy at a Tertiary Care Hospital over a 10-Month Period
TLDR
High rates of mortality after tracheostomy can possibly affect hospital quality ratings for surgical services and the need to stratify postoperative mortality as well as to consider comorbidity and age when evaluating patients for trachesostomy is illustrated. Expand
The Impact of Dialysis-Requiring Acute Kidney Injury on Long-Term Prognosis of Patients Requiring Prolonged Mechanical Ventilation: Nationwide Population-Based Study
TLDR
Among patients that need PMV care during an admission, the presence of de novo AKI requiring dialysis significantly increased short and long term mortality, and demand for health care resources. Expand
Outcomes of Prolonged Mechanical Ventilation Before and After Implementation of a Respiratory ICU
TLDR
Implementing a RICU improved the outcomes of subjects with tracheostomy who were undergoing PMV by reducing the length of stay and increasing complete or partial weaning, however, the 1-year survival remained unchanged. Expand
Comparison of respiratory infections before and after percutaneous tracheostomy.
TLDR
Respiratory infections were associated with longer stays and higher costs, which were significantly higher in patients in whom the infection developed after the tracheostomy, and interventions focused on preventing infection before and after trachostomy are warranted. Expand
Mortality outcomes of patients on chronic mechanical ventilation in different care settings: A systematic review
TLDR
There is evidence to suggest non-ICU venues of care as a comparable alternative to ICUs for stable, chronically ventilated patients, with the additional benefit of providing specialized weaning programs. Expand
Relationship of the Duration of Ventilator Support to Successful Weaning and Other Clinical Outcomes in 437 Prolonged Mechanical Ventilation Patients
TLDR
Durations of MV did not affect weaning success or survival, although deleterious effects were found in discharges, decannulations, LTACH postweaning days, and discharge physical function. Expand
Trend Analysis of Hospital Resource Utilization for Prolonged Mechanical Ventilation Patients in Taiwan: A Population-Based Study
TLDR
These population-based data demonstrated a decrease in the prevalence of PMV, especially for older patients, and that stay decreased; however, hospital treatment costs increased, indicating that attributes of both the patient and the hospital may affect hospital resource utilization. Expand

Hospital and long-term outcome after tracheostomy for respiratory failure.
TLDR
Overall survival and functional status are poor in patients with tracheostomy for respiratory failure; however, patients who are liberated from mechanical ventilation and have their trachostomy tubes removed have the best survival, however, it comes at a higher hospital cost and longer length of stay.

Increase in tracheostomy for prolonged mechanical ventilation in North Carolina, 1993–2002
TLDR
The incidence of tracheostomy for prolonged mechanical ventilation increased by nearly 200% during the past decade in North Carolina, exceeding changes in the overall incidence of respiratory failure three-fold. Expand

Outcome and function following prolonged mechanical ventilation.
TLDR
Patients with postoperative or neurologic disease as the cause of respiratory failure were found to have the highest survival rate while those with cardiac and pulmonary disease had the worst prognosis. Expand
Outcomes, cost and long term survival of patients referred to a regional weaning centre
TLDR
Most patients survived to leave hospital, the majority having been liberated from ventilatory support, and long term survival was lowest in patients with COPD, who spent less time ventilated in the referring ICU. Expand
Post-ICU mechanical ventilation at 23 long-term care hospitals: a multicenter outcomes study.
TLDR
In the continuum of critical care medicine, more than half of ventilator-dependent survivors of catastrophic illness transferred from the ICU were successfully weaned from prolonged mechanical ventilation in the setting of an LTCH. Expand
Determinants of Long-Term Mortality after Prolonged Mechanical Ventilation
TLDR
Interventions that may favorably impact long-term survival in patients requiring prolonged mechanical ventilation could target the modifiable factors identified, including measures that facilitate weaning and prevent or treat renal dysfunction and skin breakdown. Expand
Outcome After Tracheostomy for Respiratory Failure in the Elderly
TLDR
Hospital and postdischarge survival and functional status at follow-up in elderly patients receiving tracheostomy for respiratory failure and to determine if these outcomes differed between the younger elderly (65-74 years) and the older elderly (= 75 years) were determined. Expand
Ventilator-dependent survivors of catastrophic illness transferred to 23 long-term care hospitals for weaning from prolonged mechanical ventilation.
TLDR
The findings suggest that ventilator-dependent patients admitted to LTCHs for weaning will continue to require considerable medical interventions and treatments, owing to the burden of acute-on-chronic diseases resulting in PMV. Expand
Long-term mortality and quality of life after prolonged mechanical ventilation*
TLDR
Long-term mortality rate is associated with older age and poor prehospitalization functional status, and many survivors needed assistance after discharge from the hospital, and more than half still required caregiver assistance at 1 yr of follow-up. Expand
