Prolongation of mechanical ventilation poses serious personal and financial threats to healthcare consumers.
The investigators objectives are create and implement an multidisciplinary evidenced-based ventilator-weaning protocol to assess whether a systematic approach compared with the physician's judgment only decreases time spent on the ventilator, complications of mechanical ventilation and length of stay in critical care unit.

Discontinuation of ventilation was based in multidisciplinary protocol.
Other: Multidisciplinary weaning-ventilator protocol
We implemented a multidisciplinary protocol for weaning from mechanical ventilation.This consist of a daily screening for readiness, performing a spontaneous breathing test, evaluation of signs of intolerance and decision on extubation.
Other Name: Weaning-ventilator protocol
No Intervention: Usual care
Discontinuation of ventilation was left entirely to the discretion of the physicians.
- Mortality [ Time Frame: length of ICU stay (days) ]
- Duration of Weaning From Mechanical Ventilation [ Time Frame: days ]
- Duration of Mechanical Ventilation [ Time Frame: days ]
- Length of Intensive Care Unit Stay [ Time Frame: days ]
