  • BackgroundFailed extubation from mechanical ventilation in critically ill patients is multifactorial, complex and not well understood. [...] Key MethodResultsFifty-three participants who were intubated > 48 h and deemed by the treating intensivist ready for extubation underwent a 60-min pre-extubation weaning trial (pressure support ≤ 10 cmH2O and positive end expiratory pressure 5 cmH2O).Expand Abstract
