Prediction of Weaning Outcomes by Using Rate of Change of Rapid Shallow Breathing Index
This trial examines weaning outcomes using the rapid shallow breathing index rate.
|Study Design:||Time Perspective: Prospective|
|Official Title:||Prediction of Weaning Outcomes by Using Rate of Change of Rapid Shallow Breathing Index|
|Study Start Date:||January 2005|
|Study Completion Date:||July 2008|
We hypothesize that the trend of the Rapid Shallow Breathing Index or RSBI rate, is a better predictor of weaning outcome than the RSBI as a single value during the weaning trial. patients are recruited during a weaning trial on t-piece and the RSBI during what the RSBI is measured periodically. The outcome is ventilatory status at 24 hours after the weaning trial.
