The aim of this multicenter, randomized controlled trial is to evaluate the weaning time from mechanical ventilation comparing non-variable PSV, variable PSV, and Smart CareTM.
This study is a multicenter randomized controlled open trial comparing variable, non-variable pressure support ventilation and Smart CareTM in patients receiving mechanical ventilation for more than 24 hours who are able to be weaned.
The aim of the study is to determine the duration of weaning from mechanical ventilation for each one of the above mentioned weaning methods

This study will compare Drager Smart Care (SC), a commercially available automated ventilator controlled weaning mode to the current daily spontaneous breathing trial (SBT) weaning protoco...
To evaluate whether EELI, RVD, GI were good predictor for weaning from mechanical ventilation
The main purpose of the present study was to explore the weaning failure rate from invasive mechanical ventilation and to indentify risk factors of weaning failure.
The investigators aimed to develop integrated ultrasound guided mechanical weaning protocol in critically ill patients. The analysis will be taken (1) just before the spontaneous breathing...
Patients with COPD who deteriorate to Respiratory Failure pose a challenge to the intensivist both in ventilating an obstructed patient and in weaning from mechanical ventilation. C...
The optimal ventilation strategy in patients receiving mechanical ventilation for severe asthma remains unclear. The effect of conventional ventilation (with constant tidal volume and respiratory rate...
Intensive care unit patients undergoing mechanical ventilation have traditionally been sedated to make them comfortable and to avoid pain and anxiety. However, this may lead to prolonged mechanical ve...
Respiratory muscle weakness in critically ill patients is associated with difficulty in weaning from mechanical ventilation. Previous studies have mainly focused on inspiratory muscle activity during ...
Many factors contribute to a complicated postoperative course following difficult weaning off a ventilator after lung transplantation.
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).
