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

Condition Phase
Rapid Shallow Breathing
Early Phase 1

Study Type: Observational
Study Design: Time Perspective: Prospective
Official Title: Prediction of Weaning Outcomes by Using Rate of Change of Rapid Shallow Breathing Index

Further study details as provided by Atlantic Health System:

Estimated Enrollment: 100
Study Start Date: January 2005
Study Completion Date: July 2008
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.
