In this study, we want to compare two different kinds of artificial ventilation to see if one encourages faster weaning from breathing support and if one provides better sleep quality. These artificial ventilation types are:
1. Pressure support ventilation; the standard ventilation that we use for the patients in the Respiratory Acute Care Unit. Pressure support ventilation ventilators use constant air pressure to assist patients with their breathing.
2. Proportional assist ventilation; a newer way of helping people with their breathing. The air pressure provided by proportional assist ventilation ventilators varies with the size of the breath that a person takes.

Synchronism of gas flow delivered by the ventilator and muscular effort of the patient will be studied during two kinds of ventilation. The first one is the proportional assisted ventilati...
During weaning from mechanical ventilation process, the energy expenditure in T tube is greater than pressure support ventilation.
Mechanical ventilation is an integral, but expensive, part of the intensive care unit (ICU). Optimal use of mechanical ventilation could save costs and improve patient outcomes. Here, the cost effecti...
Optimizing pressure support ventilation (PSV) can improve patient-ventilator interaction. We conducted a two-center, randomized cross-over study to determine whether automated PSV lowers asynchrony ra...

Artificial respiration (RESPIRATION, ARTIFICIAL) using an oxygenated fluid.
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.
Ventilatory support system using frequencies from 60-900 cycles/min or more. Three types of systems have been distinguished on the basis of rates, volumes, and the system used. They are high frequency positive-pressure ventilation (HFPPV); HIGH-FREQUENCY JET VENTILATION; (HFJV); and high-frequency oscillation (HFO).
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).
Non-therapeutic positive end-expiratory pressure occurring frequently in patients with severe airway obstruction. It can appear with or without the administration of external positive end-expiratory pressure (POSITIVE-PRESSURE RESPIRATION). It presents an important load on the inspiratory muscles which are operating at a mechanical disadvantage due to hyperinflation. Auto-PEEP may cause profound hypotension that should be treated by intravascular volume expansion, increasing the time for expiration, and/or changing from assist mode to intermittent mandatory ventilation mode.
