OBJECTIVE To evaluate the utility of serial measurements of plasma N-terminal pro-brain natriuretic peptide (NT-proBNP) to detect acute cardiac dysfunction during weaning failure in difficult to wean patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. DESIGN Prospective observational cohort study. SETTING A 14-bed general intensive care unit in a university hospital. PATIENTS Nineteen patients mechanically ventilated for chronic obstructive pulmonary disease exacerbation who were… CONTINUE READING
