Brief Summary:
This trial examines weaning outcomes using the rapid shallow breathing index rate.

Condition or disease
Rapid Shallow Breathing

Detailed Description:
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.

Study Type : Observational
Estimated Enrollment : 100 participants
Time Perspective: Prospective
Official Title: Prediction of Weaning Outcomes by Using Rate of Change of Rapid Shallow Breathing Index
Study Start Date : January 2005
