Robot-assisted coronary artery bypass graft [robot-assisted (coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG)] surgery is the latest treatment for coronary artery disease. However, the surgery extensively affects cardiac and pulmonary function, and the risk factors associated with peri-operative morbidity, including prolong mechanical ventilation (PMV), have not been fully examined. In this retrospective cohort study, a total of 382 patients who underwent robot-assisted internal mammary artery harvesting with mini-thoracotomy direct-vision bypass grafting surgery (MIDCABG) from 2005 to 2012 at our tertiary care hospital were included. The definition of PMV was failure to wean from mechanical ventilation more than 48 h after the surgery. Risk factors for PMV, and peri-operative morbidity and mortality were analyzed with a multivariate logistic regression model. Forty-three patients (11.3%) developed PMV after the surgery, and the peri-operative morbidity and mortality rates were 38 and 2.6%, respectively. The risk factors for PMV were age, left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF), the duration of one-lung ventilation for MIDCABG (beating time), and peak airway pressure at the end of the surgery. Furthermore, age and anesthesia time were found to be independent risk factors for peri-operative morbidity, whereas age, LVEF, and anesthesia time were the risk factors for peri-operative mortality. These findings may help physicians to properly choose patients for this procedure, and provide more attention to patients with higher risk after surgery to achieve better clinical outcomes.

Techniques for effecting the transition of the respiratory-failure patient from mechanical ventilation to spontaneous ventilation, while meeting the criteria that tidal volume be above a given threshold (greater than 5 ml/kg), respiratory frequency be below a given count (less than 30 breaths/min), and oxygen partial pressure be above a given threshold (PaO2 greater than 50mm Hg). Weaning studies focus on finding methods to monitor and predict the outcome of mechanical ventilator weaning as well as finding ventilatory support techniques which will facilitate successful weaning. Present methods include intermittent mandatory ventilation, intermittent positive pressure ventilation, and mandatory minute volume ventilation.
Mechanical devices used to produce or assist pulmonary ventilation.
Mechanical ventilation delivered to match the patient's efforts in breathing as detected by the interactive ventilation device.
A chronic lung disease developed after OXYGEN INHALATION THERAPY or mechanical ventilation (VENTILATION, MECHANICAL) usually occurring in certain premature infants (INFANT, PREMATURE) or newborn infants with respiratory distress syndrome (RESPIRATORY DISTRESS SYNDROME, NEWBORN). Histologically, it is characterized by the unusual abnormalities of the bronchioles, such as METAPLASIA, decrease in alveolar number, and formation of CYSTS.
Any method of artificial breathing that employs mechanical or non-mechanical means to force the air into and out of the lungs. Artificial respiration or ventilation is used in individuals who have stopped breathing or have RESPIRATORY INSUFFICIENCY to increase their intake of oxygen (O2) and excretion of carbon dioxide (CO2).
